Telematics Update: BMW Break New Ground with Telematics in Mexico

Telematics Update: BMW Break New Ground with Telematics in Mexico

In Mexico, Latin America’s second largest economy, ConnectedDrive will launch in the last quarter of 2014, and it will be standard for vehicles in the 2015 model year. As BMW prepares to introduce the service, David Colon, ConnectedDrive manager for BMW Group, Mexico, is putting together a puzzle of his own: How to create a network of content and support services that will work seamlessly.

David noted that currently they are “looking for the right suppliers to provide the services they want, and also creating the infrastructure to deliver them”. He continued to say that, “the portfolio differs from market to market and we are in the final details of the contracts and arrangements, and we do have a set of providers who are giving us the content we need". This emphasizes the need from OEMs to understand what is proving successful in neighboring regions so that they can integrate them into this new telematics service offering.

At the Telematics Brazil & LATAM Conference & Exhibition 2013 the leading telematics service providers and OEMs will gather in São Paulo to share crucial insights into what makes the most in demand services across Latin America.

The conference will bring together leading companies such as Google, Ford, Microsoft, Daimler, HERE, Volvo, Continental, Fiat, Datora, Denso, Inrix, Renault, Nissan, Claro, Honda and many more.
