NEXT-GEN SONY AV CENTER INTEGRATES TOMTOM
Sony will integrate TomTom maps and navigation into the new Sony AV Center in-dash infotainment system. Drivers will benefit from TomTom turn-by-turn navigation including IQ Routes, for the quickest routes and most accurate arrival times.
The Sony AV Center TomTom app includes a map of Western Europe and many useful navigation features. Multi-stop routes enable drivers to plan multiple stops on one route, and eco routes save drivers money on fuel. Spoken street names, Advanced Lane Guidance and easy map updates are also included.
“Sony’s audiovisual expertise and TomTom navigation are an excellent combination for drivers,” says Charles Cautley, Managing Director Automotive at TomTom. “We’re delighted to have been selected by Sony as the navigation provider for the next generation of AV Center. Drivers have a fantastic new way to experience the best navigation, while enjoying excellent sound quality and other great multimedia features.”
The Sony AV Center has a high-resolution, 6.1” / 15.5 cm WVGA screen for a brighter and clearer view of TomTom maps. In addition, the App Remote allows drivers to access their smartphone apps and content from the system’s screen.
“With TomTom navigation built in, the new Sony AV Center gives drivers everything they want from in-car infotainment,” says Tomohiro Suko, General Manager at Sony Europe. “We know we can trust TomTom to provide Sony customers with a world-class navigation experience, and have been very impressed by TomTom maps and routing technology.”
The Sony AV Center XNV-KIT602 will be demonstrated at the Frankfurt IAA 2013 motor show today.
