BMW car owners can enjoy built-in TomTom sat-nav on certain models.

A partnership between the two companies means that TomTom GO LIVE navigation devices are now being offered with BMW 1 Series, 3 Series, X1 and X3 cars.

The customised TomTom kit connects directly to the in-car entertainment system and includes TomTom’s real-time HD Traffic service.

A 5” touch-screen mounts on the dashboard, and both spoken directions and incoming telephone calls can be heard through the car’s built-in speakers.

Here is the full set of features:

  • 5-inch touch screen display. Drivers can see more and drive easy with an XXL screen. Touch screen technology provides the easiest operation.
  • Seamless integration with the BMW Car Entertainment System. The navigation device uses the in-car speakers to deliver ultra high quality instructions. All other audio channels (radio, CD, etc.) are temporarily muted.
  • LIVE Services. One year’s free LIVE Services for the best real-time information. This includes TomTom HD Traffic, which gives drivers the quickest route through the jams. Search & Go services include TripAdvisor, Expedia, and Local Search with TomTom Places.
  • IQ Routes. Using real travel information shared by millions of drivers, the service provides the best routes and arrival times at every time of day.
  • Advanced Lane Guidance. Gives drivers extra clarity at difficult junctions.
  • Hands-free calling via Bluetooth®. Drivers can make and answer phone calls safely while driving.
  • Maps of 45 European countries.
