Sony offers nav devices with TomTom tech for the first time.
TomTom CTO Mark Gretton said that the GO-1000 will support custom/3D party POIs next year. The feature was left out at launch.
At the Paris Motor Show, TomTom and Renault today revealed their first fully connected in-dash navigation system, the Carminat TomTom LIVE.
TomTom documented the most congested 25 areas in London.
The 12 worst roads for jams in the 25-strong TomTom list all suffer congestion for at least 84 hours a week - or 12 hours a day - while drivers using the next 13 most-congested routes on the list have to contend with between 81 and 83 hours of jams a week, on average. The figures are based on an analysis of congestion across all roads in the UK by TomTom traffic experts over the last two years. The company issued its worst-jams list as it published a traffic manifesto in a bid to reduce congestion.
IT Pro Portal comments on the worldwide manifesto:
To some it might look like a marketing gimmick to promote the new product, but going through the Traffic Manifesto gives a clear impression that Tom Tom is out to not only curb traffic, but to also prevent the adverse impact traffic has on lives of individuals and economy as a whole.
