Renault adds Carminat TomTom LIVE navigation to van line-up
The latest version of the navigation system, which is currently available for most of Renault's passenger cars, is now being offered for the Kangoo, Trafic and Master and incorporates four new LIVE services:
• The HDTraffic real-time traffic information service.
• Road safety alerts (warning of mobile speed checks, in agreement with local legislation).
• Local Search with Google, which can locate almost 20 million points of interest.
• Five-day weather forecasts.
These come in addition to the new functions added in 2010, including IQ Routes (which proposes routes based on real-world traffic flow statistics) and Advanced Lane Guidance (which provides advanced views of junctions and lanes).
The system is being offered for €490 with a free three-month trial of the TomTom LIVE features. After this period customers wishing to access the TomTom LIVE services will need to take out an annual TomTom HOME subscription costing €59 or a "Three-Year Pack" for €149.
