    TomTom launches TomTom City as a traffic information source for consumers and professionals

    Amsterdam, 5 April 2016– TomTom today announced the launch of TomTom City.
    Code:
    Please Login or Register to see the links
    – a new traffic portal that provides live traffic and travel information for consumers and traffic management experts. This new service showcases the extensive range of traffic information available on a city by city basis and will provide a platform to connect traffic authorities, businesses and citizens to jointly manage sustainable and efficient mobility.
    TomTom City, which can be found at
    Code:
    Please Login or Register to see the links
    , is accessible from any internet enabled computer, tablet or smartphone and provides freely accessible content showing live traffic status and incidents and other driver-based information in cities. This will enable consumers to check their journey routes first and plan the best route. Furthermore by also being accessible to traffic management experts, traffic issues can now be dealt with even more quickly. The initial launch of 25 cities in 18 countries will expand to include more cities and products throughout the year.
    TomTom City builds on the leading TomTom Traffic information available to TomTom navigation devices and licensing partners in automotive, consumer and government. It also extends the historical congestion information provided through reports such as the TomTom Traffic Index.
    Ralf-Peter Schäfer, Head of Traffic at TomTom, said: “TomTom City gives drivers and traffic managers essential insights into the real-time traffic situation and the historical bottlenecks in key cities. This is an important step in our mission to help reduce delays for all drivers. Using data from over 450 million devices* globally we are creating services that will help cities and connected cars work together to optimise the road network.”
    As the number of connected vehicles on the road increases over the coming years with the emergence of semi- and highly-automated driving, TomTom City will offer new ways to manage city mobility. Drivers and professionals involved in traffic management can make smarter decisions to avoid delays on the road and reduce congestion for everyone.
    Key Features in TomTom City:
    Real Time Traffic Status
    TomTom City aims to give a quick view of the current traffic condition in the city. The status indicators show the current average speed observed in the city compared to average speed when there is no congestion; a congestion barometer showing relative congestion compared to a free-flowing period; and a snapshot that shows the number of road closures, construction areas and accidents currently in the city. In addition, TomTom City also shows the traffic incidents on a map, and the traffic flow (speed) on a map. All Real Time Traffic information on TomTom City is updated every minute.
    Delay Hotspots
    TomTom City shows the top congestion bottlenecks recorded in the recent quarterly period. The information is presented as a summary for ‘All Day’ and separately for morning and afternoon peak periods to reflect the periodical traffic conditions in cities. Summary information is presented on a map view and each hotspot can be selected individually to see road segment delay details.
    Road Event Reporter
    This new web-based tool will help road authorities and other professional operators to inform millions of road users in minutes about events that are affecting the road network and its traffic flows via the TomTom Traffic service. With a few clicks a road authority can report road closures, road works, accidents and other disruptions that are affecting traffic in their local area, now, as well as those planned in the future.

    Cities covered at launch
    Europe: Aarhus (DNK), Amsterdam (NLD), Berlin (DEU), Bordeaux (FRA), Ghent (BEL), Lodz (POL), London (GBR), Montpelier (FRA), Moscow (RUS), Paris (FRA), The Hague (NLD)
    Australia/ Oceania: Auckland (NZL), Sydney (AUS)
    Africa: Cape Town (ZAF)
    Asia: Dubai (ARE), Istanbul (TUR), Riyadh (SAU), Singapore (SGP), Taipei (TWN)
    Americas: Pittsburgh (USA), Rio de Janeiro (BRA), San Francisco (USA), Sau Paulo (BRA), Toronto (CAN), Vancouver (CAN)

    Truck Parking Europe app now available for TomTom driver terminals

    Amsterdam, 26 April 2016 – TomTom (TOM2) today announced that it has teamed up with
    Code:

    Truck Parking Europe to make its popular app available for TomTom customers. Users of
    Code:

    "]TomTom BRIDGE driver terminals as well as the
    Code:
    Please Login or Register to see the links
    TomTom PRO 8 series, which is TomTom’s high-end driver terminal that is fully compatible with TomTom WEBFLEET, will be able to download the app directly onto the devices.
    One challenge for truck drivers is balancing the need to comply with resting period legislation, against knowing when and where they can take their break in the safest, and most comfortable way.
    By bringing together
    Code:
    Please Login or Register to see the links
    TomTom’s Remaining Driving Time (RDT) app, which reminds drivers when the next stop is due, and the Truck Parking Europe (TPE) app which shows where suitable truck parking spots are located, we are providing drivers with the tools they need for safer driving and parking all in one unit.
    Truck Parking Europe is already available for smartphones and has been downloaded more than 150,000 times. However, this is the first time it will be made available for dedicated truck navigation devices. The app has the largest and most up-to-date database of parking areas across Europe. Each area is evaluated by other app users, which gives drivers access to ratings from the biggest community of truck drivers in Europe.
    “Helping customers drive more safely is a core part of what TomTom’s open platforms are all about,” said George de Boer, International Alliance Manager at TomTom. “By offering Truck Parking Europe as an integrated part of TomTom driver terminals we are adding another component to our overall portfolio for truck drivers, which includes truck navigation, the Remaining Driving Time app, the recently released OptiDrive 360 for trucks and buses, full fleet management service integration and our WEBFLEET tachograph manager.”
    Niels de Zwaan, director Truck Parking Europe, added: “By combining the TPE app with the TomTom RDT app, professional drivers know exactly when and where to go for the most highly recommended resting places from our Europe-wide database. This helps to ensure hassle-free driving and can contribute towards increased road safety.”
    The app is available as of today and can be downloaded to TomTom PRO8 devices through the TomTom Telematics MDM platform and will be made available for download in the

    Who is interested

    Welcome to Priority Driving


    ~ TomTom Introduces Innovative New Communications Platform ~

    Amsterdam, 6 June 2016- “Welcome to Priority Driving”. That’s the message TomTom http://www.tomtom.com/ (TOM2) is communicating to drivers through its latest integrated communications campaign. Inspired by the airline industry’s frequent flyer clubs, the new category positioning has been created to reflect the feeling that driving with a TomTom navigation device gives you.
    Nuno Campos, VP Marketing, TomTom, said: “Because our latest navigation devices are built with technology that we’ve created for the future of driving, it means that we’re able to provide a superior driving experience. Combining smart routing with our maps and traffic information, we can give drivers a feeling of having their very own driving lane. That’s what the Welcome to Priority Driving campaign is all about.”
    TomTom will be bringing the campaign to life with a radio campaign and several digital treatments, including programmatic advertising, YouTube pre-roll, search, and a campaign website. The campaign will also be reflected in-store and through disruptive PR and social campaigns. Welcome to Priority Driving will run until the end of 2016.
    The multi-million Euro campaign will launch in European markets on 20 June. It was created in collaboration with 180 Amsterdam.
    Al Moseley, President and CCO, 180 Amsterdam, commented: “Not everybody understands that TomTom’s satnavs are now quicker, smarter, and that they work in real-time. So we wanted to give a sense of what driving with a TomTom feels like now – the same feeling that frequent flyers get at the airport – skipping the check-in, security, and boarding queues. This sense of advantage is exactly what Welcome to Priority Driving is all about.
