SiriusXM has announced it has signed a new telematics deal with Nissan to provide services for Nissan branded vehicles in the United States.
The U.S.-based broadcasting company will provide telematics services including non-stop emergency support for accidents, stolen vehicle tracking and roadside assistance.
SiriusXM’s services also include consolidated bill for the customer’s audio entertainment and a central site to manage their subscriptions. The company can also combine satellite and cellular networks to expand coverage beyond traditional cellular-based telematics services.
“Being the first car company to launch these telematics services allows us to further enhance the whole customer driving experience by providing the finest audio entertainment and data services that meet the growing expectations of the connected driver,” said Trisha Jung, Nissan Connected Services director.
In his turn, SiriusXM CEO Mel Karmazin said: „Our critically acclaimed satellite radio service, now coupled with dynamic and full service telematics, offers the support that drivers want and need on the road and strengthens our relationship with Nissan.”
For the future, SiriusXM has the ability to combine satellite and cellular networks to expand coverage beyond traditional cellular-based telematics services. This blend would also create the potential for personalized services and next-generation audio offerings.
