TomTom’s navigation components will be rolled-out into Peugeot’s latest car lines. TomTom Maps, Navigation, 3D Buildings, Traffic, Speed Cameras, Weather, Fuel, Parking and Local Search will be included in the PEUGEOT 208 and 2008, running on the car maker’s i-Cockpit infotainment system.
The announcement follows the launch of the i-Cockpit concept in the Peugeot 3008 and 5008, which included the same components. The Peugeot i-Cockpit® features a multimedia system with an 8-inch touchscreen as well as a head-up instrument panel with a 12.3-inch display screen, proving the scalability of TomTom components, which work on both screens.
The Peugeot i-Cockpit’s capacitive touchscreen benefits from the latest TomTom NavKit technology, with the possibility of transferring navigation and direction indications directly onto the head-up screen. 3D buildings and landmarks are magnified by the 12.3-inch instrument panel behind the steering wheel.
The system also supports voice recognition, and features the latest TomTom live services.
