Over the summer TomTom kept us all entertained with the release of the Star Wars voices for their satnav devices. We all enjoyed the videos of Darth and Yoda in the recording studio with the long-suffering sound engineer. I actually still get the giggles at the word “Roundabound”. Little did I realise that all the japery was a big, fat hint towards their impending move to The Darkside. […]

The commute to and from work is something that I used to enjoy. For me, that time was the quality time I spent with myself (tragic I know), gearing myself up for the day to come, or winding down after the day so that I didn’t confront my loved ones as a heinous harpy. Sadly, with more and more people on the road each day though, my car ceased being my haven and became my little stress box. Road works, traffic jams, accidents – the list of incidents is infinite – the result of each one, the same. Stressful, time consuming, fuel guzzling delays which leave you frazzled, out of pocket and more often than not, late. Wouldn’t it be great if you could wish away the delays? Wouldn’t it be great if you could teleport from the A-road armageddon straight to your destination? Wouldn’t it be handy if you could pack a crystal ball that let you know what delights your journey had in store for you? Wouldn’t it be brilliant if someone could do something about it? […]

It’s now been five years since the launch of TomTom’s highly successful GO series of sat nav devices. A landmark in the development of the all-in-one GPS market, the launch of the TomTom GO made it possible for every driver to own a high quality navigation device. Intuitive, easy to use and with advanced features available straight out of the box, the simplicity and high end functionality of the TomTom GO was a recipe for success, even from the very beginning.
Since then, TomTom have launched several new ranges of sat nav devices, making TomTom the market leader with over 1000 awards and test reviews to their name, as well as a global user base of over 30 million. Along with the launch of new ranges such as the ONE and XL, TomTom have also and developed and introduced new technologies which have changed the face of the navigation industry.
The most influential of these new technologies include: TomTom Mapshare, which allows users to share and update their own map edits via a thriving online community of users; HD traffic, a real time traffic information solution which collects and processes traffic data via multiple anonymous sources; and IQ Routes, which provides information about the actual speeds driven on roads at different times of day, giving the most accurate route estimates at all times.
“We are humbled, thrilled and extremely motivated about the leading role TomTom has played in igniting and driving the PND market in the past 5 years,” said Harold Goddijn CEO of TomTom. “Despite the changes the industry has seen in just five years, TomTom’s focus has remained the same: optimising the driving experience by delivering dynamic route guidance that is relevant to every driver’s journey. You can count on us to continue with this strategy.”
