SCHAUMBURG, Ill., Oct. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) announced that it received an award for a multi-year contract from General Motors to provide its next-generation Telematics Control Unit (TCU). The contract, awarded in the third quarter, expands Motorola's significant position in the worldwide Telematics market and represents a strategic step towards launching enhanced safety, security and convenience services in the North America market.

"Motorola has been working with GM and OnStar since 1996 to augment the product offering and has migrated it from analog to digital technology and added new capabilities like voice dialing. This contract represents the next step in Motorola, GM and OnStar's technology relationship," said Kieran O'Sullivan, vice president and general manager of Motorola's automotive business. "Motorola is one of the few companies in the world that understands the complexity behind developing Telematics systems and we are excited to continue working with GM and OnStar to provide drivers in North America with safety, security and convenience services."

Motorola's TCU is currently embedded into more than 50 GM vehicle models and is the in-vehicle system behind OnStar, the nation's leading provider of in-vehicle safety and security services. GM has stated that OnStar will be standard on all GM vehicles by 2007.

Motorola's TCU incorporates wireless and Global Positioning System (GPS) technologies to link the car and driver to a call center where OnStar advisors are available 24/7 to provide real-time assistance.

Terms and conditions of the contract are not being disclosed.
