How does my TomTom device work?

Now that you know more or less how GPS works, you may be wondering what exactly your TomTom device does with all this GPS information it receives.

  1. Inside your TomTom Device
    Your TomTom may not be big, but it’s very clever. Pulling together all the data available from GPS and converting it into something that can navigate across continents with amazing accuracy.
  2. More than just getting you from A-B
    By making smart use of any new technological advances, your TomTom doesn’t just bring you to where you want to be. It makes getting there ever more efficient, relaxed and fun.
  3. Smart navigation on your PDA or smart phone
    A smartphone or PDA (Personal Digital Assistant) helps you plan where you have to be. And now that you can add TomTom navigation to a smart phone or PDA, it can tell you how to get there too.
