GPS Business News: TomTom, today announced the introduction of TomTom Map Share on the new TomTom GO 520 and TomTom GO 720. This new map improvement technology allows TomTom users to improve their maps as soon as they spot changes in the roads.
According to TomTom: “Thanks to the smart user interface, it is easy to make improvements, such as blocked or unblocked streets, reversed one way traffic or new street names, which will instantly take effect”.
These map improvements can be shared with other TomTom users via a connection of the TomTom device to the TomTom HOME software on a computer. When it comes to sharing improvements, users can choose between downloading all reported map improvements or only accepting map improvements verified by a TomTom team of experts to guarantee timeliness and validity.
“TomTom Map Share™ is an important component of a new era in navigation. By enabling millions of TomTom users around the world to automatically share and mutually benefit from each other’s local road knowledge every day for free, TomTom ensures that drivers have the most accurate and up to date maps available in the industry”, said Harold Goddijn, chief executive officer at TomTom.
