TomTom, the location technology specialist, has announced that it will provide its comprehensive navigation stack to BMW Motorrad’s global lineup. Utilizing TomTom's maps, navigation, and real-time traffic services, BMW Motorrad's new models will offer an advanced built-in navigation experience. This system can also be accessed via the BMW Motorrad Connected App, available for both Android and iOS.

This collaboration ensures that BMW Motorrad riders have safe, easy access to crucial information through the handlebar display and the dedicated mobile app. The new navigation system offers turn-by-turn instructions and can function offline, ensuring riders never miss a turn.

Developed with TomTom's Navigation SDK, the system boasts increased map coverage and detail, tailored for rider comfort and safety to provide a reliable and enjoyable navigation experience.

BMW Motorrad delivered over 209K motorcycles to customers in 2023 — the highest sales volume in the company's history. With more BMW bikes on the roads, this collaboration with TomTom will make the riding experience more comfortable, connected, and most importantly, safe.
