Iveco will present an important innovation for the world of light commercial vehicles at the Hanover 2010 IAA show to be held from 23 to 30 September (press days 21 and 22 September ).

The innovation comprises an integration of the Blue&MeTM infotainment package with the TomTom navigation system specifically made for Iveco that will be launched internationally on the ECODAILY Iveco’s light range of commercial vehicles with operating mass from 2.8t to 7.0t.

The system is based on Blue&Me – the telematics solution born from the collaboration between Fiat Group Automobiles and Microsoft that has changed the paradigms of communication information and entertainment to improve comfort and quality of life in the vehicle. Integrated with TomTom it reaches an unprecedented level of connection between the navigation system and the vehicle.

With Blue&Me – TomTom Iveco meets customers’ most demanding requirements by offering a flexible and easy to use system allowing wireless hands-free mobile telephony route navigation with the best technology available and access to useful driving information.

Very important for safe driving is the ability to use the mobile telephone and radio / stereo equipment using vocal commands and steering wheel mounted switches in addition to the 4.3 inch LCD touch-sensitive screen.

System management updating and personalisation of the system are facilitated by the internet interface TomTom HOME on which Iveco’s entire service network is preloaded.

Blue&MeTM – TomTom – Iveco is part of a series of technological innovations that Iveco will present in Hanover this year resulting from investments made by the company in recent years. Iveco has in fact made available to the market some important technological innovations particularly in the field of alternative traction

Driving Innovation to Reality or “making innovation a reality” has thus become the guiding theme of Iveco presence at the Hanover 2010 show.
