Navigation is central to the TomTom Digital Cockpit experience. Online navigation enables fresh and always up-to-date map content. It is built on top of TomTom's Automotive UI, which makes use of common UI controls used elsewhere in TomTom Digital Cockpit for a consistent user experience.

TomTom Digital Cockpit provides a set of generic core services as well as off-the-shelf or stock implementations. They are built on top of Automotive UI and provide the customer with an out of the box navigation experience. Alternatively the customer can replace the off-the-shelf frontend and services with their own implementations.
