How TomTom HD Traffic works

In order to supply HD Traffic data to your GO LIVE device, TomTom gathers traffic data from three sources:

  • Incident Data: Third party providers supply real-time incident data capturing congestion caused by accidents, road construction or road closures.

  • Flow Data: Real-time information on the movement of hundreds of thousands of partner passenger cars, delivery vehicles, connected devices, & cellular phones. The partners report this data to TomTom, so that TomTom can give you an accurate read of actual traffic conditions.

  • Historical Data: Because of IQ Routes' database of actual speed profiles for every road in North America, TomTom knows that traffic travels at different speeds during different times of day and different times of the week. With TomTom’s exclusive IQ Routes technology, routes are evaluated base on actual traffic speeds, rather than posted speed limits and will recommend the fastest route for the time of day you’re traveling.

Using this information, TomTom then:

  • Evaluates this data relative to the traffic profile information to determine current traffic condition on roads.
  • Delivers the data in real-time to TomTom LIVE, connected devices.
  • Provides real-time data and notifies drivers of new traffic alerts or changing condition on their routes.
  • Gets you around traffic faster than ever.
