Customer story

BMW Motorrad and TomTom

Embedded navigation for motorcycle riders from the experts.

Wanting to provide their riders with a custom built-in navigation experience, BMW Motorrad partnered with TomTom. Together, we created a solution that offers the same great tech from our Rider device, a favorite of motorcyclists, via an app that connects to an embedded system on BMW Motorrad bikes.

Thanks to this collaboration, riders get the best of TomTom navigation through the BMW Connected app and handlebar display – for easy road trip planning and connectivity – with safe, at-a-glance access to information that's most relevant to them.

Designed for riders

Through the BMW Motorrad app, riders receive TomTom’s market-leading navigation software and services: maps, real-time traffic and weather. To ensure riders never miss a turn, our up-to-date TomTom Route Guidance provides turn-by-turn instruction. And with access to a community database that offers hundreds of rider-tested routes, BMW Motorrad customers can choose the ones that fit whatever thrill they seek, be it a scenic tour or winding, hilly ride.

Everything in the solution from BMW Motorrad and TomTom is designed for rider comfort and safety, providing a reliable and satisfying navigation experience.

Offline and online maps make it easy to get lost in adventure and find the way back.

With smartphone connectivity, riders can update the app to receive the most up-to-date map data from TomTom. Riders can also download maps before they go to make sure they have access to navigation regardless of connectivity.
