~TomTom Helps Motorists Navigate Victoria Park Brand New Road Changes From Today ~

Auckland, 18 January 2012 – TomTom today releases its Autumn Maps early, to help the 200,000 daily drivers negotiating the changes to the Victoria Park Tunnel and Flyover and get the best guidance on Auckland’s new roads.

Auckland’s road changes came into effect in January and TomTom maps now include major revisions such as:

    • Victoria Park Flyover – the existing northbound viaduct has been altered to run southbound, allowing four lanes to travel south. The left two lanes go to Cook Street, Port and SH16 and do not allow access to the Southern Motorway.
    • Victoria Park Tunnel – two northbound lanes of the Northern Motorway are open and drive underground beneath Victoria Park.

TomTom PR manager Valerie Cross says, “TomTom stays up to date with all major road changes. Our new map released today means that motorists faced with navigating the Victoria Park Flyover can drive safely and with confidence.”

Road networks change on average 15% per year and to help keep customers up to date, TomTom each year releases four maps: Winter (May), Spring (Aug) and Summer (Nov) and Autumn, which is normally released in February but will be published in January this year.

Motorists can download the new map at or through MyTomTom. For customers who have a new device, TomTom offers a ‘latest map guarantee’ where drivers can download the new maps for free within 90 days of a TomTom’s first use. Until mid-February TomTom is also offering 12 Bonus Maps of New Zealand over three years with all new purchases.

TomTom also recommends its customers update their software monthly to ensure they fully optimise the features of the unit. Downloading the latest software updates helps customers enjoy a premium navigating experience.

AA spokesperson Simon Lambourne has congratulated TomTom for its early map release.

“The AA encourages all motorists with TomTom in-car navigation units to update their maps, so they can drive New Zealand’s roads knowing they have the very latest information. This is particularly important for motorists who have had units for several years and who have never updated their maps; and it is very important for those motorists driving in Auckland, given the major motorway changes in the past month,” said Lambourne.
