BMW Group will use live TomTom data across all three brands.

The technology will enable BMW, Mini and Rolls-Royce cars to receive TomTom’s real-time traffic information, take advantage of faster cloud-based route-planning, and use live charging point availability data to plan top-ups en route based on the available battery range.

Antoine Saucier, managing director at TomTom Automotive, said: “TomTom’s vision is a safe, connected and autonomous world, free of congestion and emissions. The introduction of TomTom Live Traffic, Online Routing and Electric Vehicle Services into BMW vehicles is a huge step forwards to achieve this goal.”
