A new agreement has been forged between TomTom and Samsung that will bring the Wave 3 “Bada” smartphone access to the company’s GPS-related services.

Charles Cautley, Managing Director of TomTom Automotive and Licensing had the following to say about the new agreement:

Signing the deal with Samsung highlights TomTom’s ability to deliver the map and enhanced content needed to enable the location based services for wireless users. TomTom is excited to collaborate with the global leader in the smartphone market.

So what kind of features does the new agreement bring to the table? Here is a breakdown:

  • Map coverage for over 200 countries globally, providing over 35 million kilometers of road network
  • Points of Interest providing information that enables users to find the people, places and services they need, wherever they are
  • 3D City Maps and 3D Landmarks adding a dimension of clarity and reality to the map, enhancing recognition and providing a visual orientation aid
  • Enterprise Traffic delivering live road conditions, including the location and length of a traffic incident, helping drivers find the quickest route to their destination
  • Speed Cameras providing a location alert for safety related cameras to promote safe driving habits and optimize the navigation experience.

For now, there’s no word on if the service will be free to use or when it’ll be available. While this is a fairly interesting announcement, it really doesn’t effect those of us in the States since Samsung hasn’t released its Bada OS this way. Of course this could all change in the future.
