Let’s take a closer look at how all these features come together to offer drivers a complete, connected navigation experience.
Reliable: Works online and offline
Our engine is online first, meaning it will use our cloud services first, providing drivers with fast, responsive routing and ETAs. If connection drops, NavKit2 will switch to the vehicle’s onboard map and software, ensuring drivers always have the information they need to get where they’re going.
Customizable: Adapts to carmakers’ needs
Depending on the car line, model and vehicle type, carmakers can customize NavKit2 in the way that suits them best. Carmakers can configure the amount of data sent to the car by determining the part of the navigation that lives in the cloud or onboard. From entry to volume to premium, our navigation engine easily integrates with any brand, model or vehicle type, including electric vehicles (EVs), trucks and motorbikes.
EV-first: Made for the electric revolution
We believe that EVs are the future – and to keep the electric revolution rolling, we need to make sure that EV drivers can hit the road confidently, without worrying about range or finding suitable charging points. NavKit2 delivers on these needs, packing in a range of features that ensure EV drivers enjoy safe, stress-free journeys.
That includes an extensive database of EV charging point locations and live availability, so drivers can easily find a suitable place to recharge. TomTom also integrates charging point information and EV consumption models in our routing algorithms – which also take current battery levels, weather and traffic conditions into account – to provide precise EV routing and range predictions. We top it all off with a long-distance routing API that provides a fast overview of where and when to charge on longer journeys.
Global: Supports local markets and languages
TomTom technology is available on a global scale and backed by the knowledge and support of our local teams. We don’t just support local languages, but also local habits like landmark navigation, postcode entry and junction-to-junction navigation.
