TomTom, the location technology specialist, has announced that drivers of the all-new Nissan Qashqai in Europe will benefit from its advanced mapping technology and connected services. TomTom’s maps will support the new Nissan Qashqai’s upgraded ProPILOT with Navi-link driver assistance, as well as the NissanConnect infotainment system’s built-in navigation.
The next generation of ProPILOT automates vehicle steering, acceleration and braking within a single lane on highways, helping drivers maintain a safe distance to the car in front.
TomTom will also provide the new Qashqai’s NissanConnect infotainment system with an over-the-air (OTA) map update solution. This technology automatically updates relevant parts of the map.
Antoine Saucier, Managing Director, TomTom Automotive. says: “Sensors can only see what is visible. If a sign is missing, a truck is in the way, the weather is bad, or if there is a sharp bend in the road over the next hill, sensors alone are not sufficient to provide adequate feedback to the vehicle. The TomTom ADAS Map supports more comfortable, efficient and safer driving, by providing high quality information on gradient, lanes, curvature and speed limits to advanced systems like Nissan’s new ProPILOT with Navi-link.”
“The new Qashqai is equipped with an array of exciting new features normally only found on models in premium segments,” adds Marco Fioravanti, Vice President, Product Planning, Nissan Europe. “TomTom’s innovative and up-to-date mapping technologies provide seamless location support for some of these new features, offering new Qashqai drivers an even more convenient, smooth and secure driving experience.”
Headquartered in Amsterdam with offices in 30 countries, TomTom’s technologies are trusted by hundreds of millions of drivers, businesses and governments worldwide.
