Sanyo, TomTom, Mazda Co-op on New CarNav

SANYO Consumer Electronics Co., Ltd. (SANYO CE), a consolidated subsidiary of SANYO Electric Co., Ltd. (SANYO), in cooperation with TomTom NV (TomTom), have developed a new built-in car navigation system. From the beginning of 2011, the new built-in car navigation system will be offered by Mazda as an option on its new Mazda5 compact van in Europe.

SANYO CE and TomTom have been working hand-in-hand to develop a built-in car navigation system which can take on global competition, since September 2009, by harnessing both TomTom and our strengths.

The new car navigation system features an integrated 5.8-inch touch screen monitor with SANYO’s audio video solution and a communication module. TomTom’s car navigation technology, “TomTom® Live Service”, including “TomTom® HD Traffic”, a real-time traffic service and “TomTom® local search with GoogleTM”, provides customers with real-time information.
