Digital maps

The world is made up of countless millions of roads, from huge motorways to quaint country lanes. The mapping of all these routes, as well as all the various street directions and other details that affect them, is carried out by governments and other statutory organisations across the globe. Their maps form the basis of all maps, including the digital maps for your TomTom.

  1. The advantage of digital mapping
    The digital map is not only easy to store, it is also much more up to date!
  2. How does digital mapping work?
    A digital map is easy to use and to update, creating one however, is a less easy process.
