TomTom boosts Sony device for cyclist navigation


TomTom has revealed that its online routing application programming interface (API) has helped boost navigation capabilities of the Sony Future Lab Program N device for cyclists.  

Sony’s Future Lab Program N device is an 'ears open and hands-free' voice interaction system, which uses TomTom‘s advanced routing technology for its navigation. 

The programme has been initially designed for beta testing of the device, which will be used by cyclists in the San Francisco Bay Area, US.
