Home Your IT Mobility TomTom Live helps you live a little

TomTom today announced TomTom HD Traffic in Australia, available on its new line of 'GO LIVE' GPS systems as well as through the new version of its iPhone app.

TomTom HD Traffic delivers navigation and route guidance that apparently adapts to changing road conditions, giving drivers the fastest route to a destination.

The service has been available in the US and in Europe for a while now but has finally made it to Australian shores (and roads).

HD Traffic combines live incidents and the real-flow comprehensive view of traffic anywhere, and is updated every two minutes, covering both metro and regional areas.

'The introduction of TomTom HD Traffic to Australia marks a fundamental breakthrough in the quality and functionality of GPS devices, giving Australian drivers real-time information about road conditions,' said Chris Kearney, Vice-President, TomTom Asia Pacific.

'With HD Traffic, TomTom provides drivers with the best routing information and most accurate and detailed live traffic information available. This helps motorists make intelligent decisions that save time and money and puts the driver back in control.'

Kearney added, 'At TomTom we believe that through innovations such as HD Traffic we can reduce driving time, driver stress and overall road congestion.

'To help everyone benefit from this fantastic technology, HD Traffic is now also available through TomTom's free online route planner. With this service, users can see changing conditions with HD Traffic for themselves and plan their journey accordingly.'

HD Traffic and the other Live services including safety cameras and Google search are available either on a new TomTom GPS or through its iPhone app.
