Documentation

TomTom IndiGO is a framework that delivers Android-based digital cockpits. It includes an application platform to support the development of highly integrated applications on top of Android Automotive. It also offers a complete set of industrial strength end-user applications that can be customized to the needs of a car maker. Take the in-car experience to new places and get started with our comprehensive SDK that includes APIs, supporting documentation, and code examples.

Creating a TomTom IndiGO product requires two distinct activities: development of the software using the TomTom IndiGO SDK, and integrating that software in the vehicle. Development for TomTom IndiGO is an independent activity, and can be achieved using emulators and mobile devices. We provide information on both parts here on this developer portal.
