Fisker Chooses TomTom to Power Navigation System for First Premium Electric Car

Under the three-year agreement, TomTom will provide the Fisker Karma electric car with map and location content covering North America (US and Canada), as well as Europe. The agreement encompasses the core map; Points of Interest; and Voice Maps, which are used to support text-to-speech and voice recognition for address input of the navigation system. All of this location content is available via a Command Center – the industry’s first 10.2” touch screen interface which controls navigation, as well as climate, infotainment, phone and additional secondary systems.

’Winning this deal with Fisker, a new and innovative car manufacturer, highlights TomTom’s position in the market as the leader in delivering the most accurate maps and location content globally,’ said Charles Cautley, Managing Director of TomTom Automotive and Licensing. ‘By partnering with Fisker, TomTom is providing Fisker Karma drivers with location information that will support all their navigation needs.’
