Maserati connects its vehicles to TomTom servicesSeptember 22, 2020
During the premiere of the Maserati MC20 earlier this month, the company didn’t talk much about the car’s 10.25-inch infotainment system.
Today the Italian brand asked TomTom to provide maps, navigation software and connected services for a future model. While the MC20 will not arrive until next year, users will be able to experience the new features in the updated Ghibli, Levante and Quattroporte, which will go on sale in October.
As Maserati is rolling out electrification in its upcoming Folgore lineup, the infotainment system will feature a service available for EVs that shows the location and availability of charging points, and also displays dynamic range, allowing drivers to easily visualize their vehicle’s remaining range.
If owners are unable to reach their destination, they will be notified via the service, which will also indicate the location of the gas station and provide a comparison of charging costs with available stations within reach. In addition, the dashboard will display information such as step-by-step instructions, hazard warnings and speed cameras. Users will also be able to customize the interface according to their preferences.
In a statement, TomTom Automotive Managing Director Antoine Saussier said: “We are delighted that our premium navigation system will now be used in exclusive Maserati sports cars. Drivers will benefit from seamless connectivity and automatic map updates over the air so they can hop in and get started. ”
