TomTom HD Traffic™ widget brings real-time traffic information to personal and social networking sites

12 March 2009 – TomTom, the world’s leading navigation solutions provider, today announces the availability of the TomTom HD Traffic widget, a personal traffic application for the Internet, also known as a gadget. It allows users to receive the latest real-time traffic information directly to their own personal web pages, including Facebook, Bebo and iGoogle, and can be installed free of charge from www.tomtom.com/widgets.

“TomTom’s HD Traffic information has been personalised so it can be added easily to users’ favourite web pages, providing continuous updates of the latest traffic situation at a glance,” said Corinne Vigreux, TomTom’s managing director. “It illustrates our commitment to making TomTom’s leading traffic service available to as many people as possible.”

Fiona Herring, product manager for iGoogle, said, “This is a really useful tool; I think it's great that TomTom has built this gadget. It's an example of how gadgets can provide really useful information in an easy-to-access way.”

A widget or gadget displays web content from external sources and can be embedded into a blog, social network site or other web page. Once users have installed the free TomTom HD Traffic widget and added it to their preferred web page(s), they can tailor the information to see the latest traffic delays on their route, or in their region, in both minutes and miles, in their preferred language. The precise traffic delay times can help drivers to plan their day more efficiently, as they can decide the best time to set off on their journey, for example.

The HD Traffic widget is available now for customers in the UK, Netherlands, France, Germany and Switzerland, and uses TomTom’s unique High Definition traffic technology to deliver the most accurate and detailed live traffic information directly to users’ favourite web pages.

Users can go to www.tomtom.com/widgets or www.google.nl/hdtraffic to install the HD Traffic widget, or to www.tomtom.com/hdtraffic to find out more about TomTom’s HD Traffic information.
