The industry's first truly affordable, fully integrated satellite navigation system, Renault Carminat TomTom is already proving popular with UK buyers, offering a wealth of intrinsic benefits. Now this impressive piece of equipment is being included as standard on Dynamique, Dynamique S, Privilege and Initiale trim levels of the Renault Clio, Renault Kangoo, Renault Megane, Renault Scenic and Renault Laguna ranges. At the same time, the system has also been improved, by offering IQ Routes technology, Advanced Lane Guidance and Map Share, plus coverage of 50 countries worldwide.

As a result of the now standard fitment of Carminat TomTom across these four trim levels, TomTom is added as a suffix to each trim level name.

On the Renault Clio, in addition to the integrated satellite navigation, the upgraded Dynamique TomTom also receives cruise control and speed limiter as standard.

For the Renault Megane, all of its Coupe, Hatch, Sport Tourer and New Coupe-Cabriolet bodystyles benefit from the equipment enhancement, as do both the Renault Scenic and Renault Grand Scenic.

Completing the changes, on the Renault Laguna, Dynamique and Initiale go down the same naming route, while a new special edition Dynamique S TomTom appears. This latest addition to the Renault Laguna range features 17" dark grey alloy wheels, Bose sound system, multi-functional TunePoint, opening tailgate windows and extra tinted windows (on Sport Tourer).

Aside from the more obvious benefits of using the new system, including fuel and time savings, not to mention less in-car disputes with fellow occupants over directions, Carminat TomTom also provides greater protection from theft. In addition, it offers volume control via the steering wheel, therefore not requiring the driver to take his or her eyes off the road to adjust it manually. Maps are now available covering 33 European countries and more than 50 countries worldwide.

The combination of IQ Routes technology and feedback from millions of fellow motorists means that drivers can now benefit from the most practical itinerary from A to B, since Carminat TomTom takes into account real-world traffic flow speeds and the time of day when computing routes.

Meanwhile, thanks to the Advanced Lane Guidance function, the system now displays detailed lane information, too, as well as precise, realistic, panoramic views of junctions and overhead road signs.
