Telenav, Inc., a provider of connected-car and location-based services, announced that it is working with Microsoft to integrate Telenav’s intelligent connected-car solutions suite with the Microsoft Connected Vehicle Platform, running on Microsoft Azure.  Telenav is building connected cloud and in-vehicle services for automotive infotainment, in-car commerce and navigation.

The Microsoft Connected Vehicle Platform combines cloud and edge services with a strong partner network to empower automotive companies to accelerate their development of connected vehicle solutions. It allows Telenav to leverage vehicle data to deliver unique in-car and cloud-based services that enhance customers’ driving and mobility experiences.

Since several automotive OEMs have already selected the Microsoft Connected Vehicle Platform, Telenav’s integration with it will make it easier for those OEMs to adopt the combined solution.  Telenav will also work with Microsoft to jointly market the integrated solution to other automotive brands.

Telenav’s suite of connected-car solutions, which is used in markets around the world, provides automotive OEMs with the flexibility to leverage Telenav’s services regardless of the cloud platform they are using. Telenav’s services are multi-cloud capable with production system(s) hosted on major public cloud infrastructures.
