Chicago, IL – HERE Technologies, the leading location data and technology platform, and Cedar Electronics, a leader in connected automotive and consumer electronics products, today announced that BMW customers in the U.S. are the first to access a new connected vehicle service that alerts drivers of permanent and mobile traffic camera locations in advance.
The service, BMW Traffic Camera Information, provides BMW owners with timely, relevant and accurate driving information. The alerts are powered by the HERE Safety Cameras product which identifies permanent traffic camera locations and the positions of mobile traffic cameras, based on automated sensor data from Cedar Electronics.
The information is integrated on the HERE platform and delivered seamlessly to BMW vehicles with the service enabled. The service is included as a 3-month trial on MY21 vehicles with Live Cockpit Professional equipment (SA6U3), starting with July 2020 production. Customers can purchase an annual subscription after the trial period. Customers with older vehicle models with iDrive Operating System 7 and Live Cockpit Professional (SA6U3) can also purchase this service via the ConnectedDrive store.
