Google partners with Kia Motors to integrate Google Maps and Places into new car models | MarketingHits | Scoop.it

Following a similar path to Nokia and Apple, Google is looking to expand its services into the automobile industry, today announcing a partnership with Korean car maker Kia Motors to integrate its Google Maps and Place services into Kia’s new UVO eServices telematics system, rolling out in new models later this year.


Google’s APIs will power systems included in Kia’s new 2014 Sorento CUV models, providing car owners with turn-by-turn directions but also assisting with the location of nearby points-of-interest. The Sorrento goes on sale in Q1 2013.
