TomTom said today that Toyota has extended its relationship with the Dutch company to feature the second generation of semi-embedded portable navigation solution in select vehicles. It will be available in Europe in the last quarter of 2009. This device, the result of a cooperation between TomTom and FUJITSU TEN, is specially designed for use with the in-dash Toyota TNS 410 audio, video and navigation system.
This device has a 400 Mhz CPU, a SiRF GSC3 GPS receiver, 2MB of flash memory, a 4.3’’ touch screen and Bluetooth. It is both integrated into the dashboard – with full audio integration with the car speakers - and portable to another car, or to a computer to download map and software updates available through HOME, TomTom’s desktop application.
Pricing has not been disclosed at this stage.
