~Offers best integration of traffic and user interface on the market~

MPH, London, 1 November 2007 – TomTom, the world’s largest navigation solution provider, today announced the availability in England of a new RDS-TMC Traffic Receiver. Providing seamless integration of traffic information with the user interface of the device, the RDS-TMC Traffic Receiver ensures drivers are constantly informed about the latest traffic situation on their route. In addition, drivers are offered an alternative route if delays occur, ensuring limited delays to any journey.

From November, there will be so-called T-versions of the TomTom GO, TomTom ONE and TomTom ONE XL available in shops across England with the new RDS-TMC Traffic Receiver included in the box.

“The RDS-TMC Traffic Receiver complements any driver’s daily journey”, says Harold Goddijn, TomTom’s chief executive officer. “The full integration of traffic information with the user interface of our products, together with the use of high quality sources, provides consumers with the best and most complete traffic experience on the market.”

The TomTom RDS-TMC Traffic Receiver functions like an FM radio antenna, receiving TMC signals that are broadcast by national or regional providers. By simply connecting the new RDS-TMC Traffic Receiver to a TomTom device, users will automatically receive traffic information.

Once a journey is planned, traffic alerts relating to the route are clearly displayed on the traffic bar on the right hand side of the screen. By tapping the traffic bar, further information is displayed, such as the cause of the traffic incident, the length of the jam and the estimated delay.
