TomTom has secured a contract from Italian luxury vehicle manufacturer Maserati to provide maps, navigation software and connected services for the all-new Maserati Intelligent Assistant (MIA) in-vehicle infotainment system.

Maserati’s MIA infotainment system will feature TomTom’s traffic and connected navigation services such as TomTom EV Services, which shows available charging points to drivers of Maserati’s upcoming electrified Folgore range, expected to be launched next year.

New to Maserati cars, dynamic range mapping will help drivers to visualise the vehicle’s range by displaying how far they can drive on their map.

If the battery of the car or fuel is not sufficient to reach the destination, the new system will alert the driver and suggest navigation to nearby charging points or fuel stations.

The system also provides a cost comparison of the available recharging / refuelling stations that are within range.

TomTom’s integrated solution can be customised with the driver’s personal preference and can be displayed across both the centre console and cluster screens.

With this feature, MIA system will be able to project moving lane and offer turn-by-turn guidance, speed camera information and traffic and hazard warnings on the cluster screen.

The feature is expected to minimise drivers’ lateral head movements and help them focus on the road for a smoother and safer drive.

Owners of Maserati’s upcoming car models such as Ghibli, Levante and Quattroporte will be the first to benefit from the wide range of innovative features provided by TomTom.

They will be rolled out next month, meanwhile other models such as the recently unveiled MC20 supercar will follow next year.

Earlier this month, TomTom launched a new technology for automated vehicles, TomTom RoadCheck, which allows carmakers to decide where it is safe for drivers to activate the automated driving functions of their vehicles.
