RENO, Nev.--TomTom (TOM2), a leader in navigation and mapping products, and GPSi, a top provider of cloud-based telematics solutions, have combined their technology to create a more comprehensive offering for school bus and motorcoach operators.
The two companies will introduce the TomTom BRIDGE with GPSi software at the STN EXPO (North American School Bus EXPO) today.
