TomTom Extends Mobile Integration of Fleet Management Solutions
TomTom has extended the integration possibilities for its fleet management solution to help companies manage their mobile operations more efficiently. TomTom Business Solutions allows third-party developers to create new applications for use in and around the vehicle. This is enabled by granting access to the Bluetooth channel on TomTom’s in-vehicle LINK device. New applications will allow businesses to enrich data from hardware, such as tire pressure sensors and temperature control units, with comprehensive information from their vehicle fleet. TomTom will expand the range of such available solutions by inviting developers to join its partner network.
