Sierra Wireless (Richmond, British Columbia, Canada) today announced that TomTom (Amsterdam, Netherlands), a location and navigation solutions provider, is using Sierra Wireless "AirPrime" Intelligent Embedded Modules to provide cellular connectivity to its integrated navigation systems for Renault and Mazda vehicles.

The "Carminat TomTom LIVE," first disclosed at the Paris Motor Show in October, is Renault’s latest connected built-in navigation system, developed as part of the car maker’s exclusive partnership with TomTom and fitted into Clio, Mégane and Scenic models sold in Europe. According to Sierra, thanks to their integrated wireless module, drivers can access real-time information such as local search for nearby services or points of interest, mobile safety camera reporting and sharing, weather information, etc.
