At the Paris Motor Show, TomTom and Renault today revealed their first fully connected in-dash navigation system, the Carminat TomTom LIVE. These services will include HD Traffic, speedcam information, weather and local search.

Carminat TomTom LIVE comes with a three month free trial, then costs €59.95 per year via an online subscription. A three year subscription model will also be offered for €149 starting in 2011 from local Renault dealerships. The service will initially be available in France, Germany, UK, Italy, Spain, The Netherlands and Portugal.

The first cars to be offered the Carminat TomTom LIVE will be the Latitude, Laguna and Espace, to be followed by the Megane and other models in 2011.

Although the Carminat TomTom solution was said to be a success with 40 percent take rate, TomTom and Renault confirmed it in providing sales figures today, stating that since its launch in March 2009 over 500,000 units have been sold.

In the future, Renault and TomTom will also offer existing TomTom Carminat users an upgrade path to the Live version.
