Lifetime Traffic Updates

Spending more time stopped in traffic than actually moving?

Traffic congestion has increased more than 50% in the past decade and an individual traveler will waste over 36 hours a year stuck in traffic, almost a week’s vacation. Now you can save money and avoid delays with TomTom Lifetime Traffic Updates for the useful life of your GPS device.

With the traffic receiver built right in, you will stay up to date on traffic conditions along your route. Available in 110 metropolitan areas in North America, TomTom Lifetime Traffic Updates will recalculate your travel time and suggest alternate routes.
