TVS Motor Company has today announced the integration of the location technology, what3words into its customer app, TVS Connect. Beginning today, TVS Connect users can share and navigate to any location using three words. The Chennai-based automaker has become the first Indian two-wheeler manufacturer to bring this addressing system to its customers. what3words is a way to identify precise locations. It has divided the world into a grid of 3-metre squares and given each square a unique combination of three random words: a what3words address. 

This partnership will make navigation simple, hassle-free and less time-consuming for customers across India. Crucially, what3words also works offline, meaning that customers can rely on what3words to get them exactly where they need to be, even in areas with poor connectivity, said TVS.

Saurabh Khullar – Assistant Vice President, Digital Marketing, TVS Motor Company, said, “Navigation accuracy is a key part of our connected vehicle offering, and we were looking for innovative ways to enhance that riding experience for our customers. We are excited about our association with what3words, which does this by using 3-word addresses generated out of their precise location system as close as 3-metres to the location. This strengthens our commitment to increasing customer delight, especially in deeper country locations where traditional systems lean more to approximations. It will increase efficiency by offering a seamless riding experience integrated into our native riding app TVS Connect. We are excited to introduce these unique 3-word addresses for the customers of our TVS Apache brand and riding community. We will gradually be extended to customers using the TVS Connect app across brands in a phased manner."

Chris Sheldrick, co-founder and CEO of what3words, added, “We’re delighted that this integration will bring what3words to TVS Motor Company’s extensive network of riders across India. Whether exploring remote terrains, recommending epic new routes, or simply navigating to new destinations, what3words ensures that TVS Motor Company riders will always arrive in exactly the right place."
