Nokia has announced that Toyota Motor Europe is the latest automotive brand to select the HERE platform’s Nokia Local Search for Automotive to power its next generation Touch & Go navigation and infotainment systems.
Nokia Local Search for Automotive is a specifically designed solution developed to fulfill the requirements of the automotive industry.
By leveraging Nokia Local Search for Automotive, Toyota drivers will have fast and easy online access to the latest industry mapping information and community-generated content – including millions of ratings, reviews and images fed directly into their cars, says Nokia.
“The ability to deliver comprehensive and driver-relevant content tailored to automotive requirements makes the Nokia Location Platform an interesting proposition,” said Derek Williams, general manager, Telematics & Multimedia, Toyota Motor Europe.
Nokia Local Search for Automotive is expected to be commercially available in Toyota systems from early 2014 in Europe, Russia and the Middle East.
Toyota Motor Europe will collaborate with Nokia to study more services that leverage the Nokia Location Platform, including content. Nokia is currently a leading company providing end-to-end mapping, navigation and location solutions for the automotive industry.
HERE, a Nokia business unit, is offering the first location cloud that delivers people the world’s best maps and location experiences across more screens and operating systems unified under the HERE brand, according to the company.
