Smart navigation for daily drivers! TomTom introduces IQ Routes™ and Spoken Street Names on the new TomTom ONE 140 and TomTom XL 340

Auckland, 23 March 2009 – TomTom, the world’s leading portable navigation solutions provider, today revealed two new versions of its world’s best-selling portable navigation devices. The new TomTom ONE 140 IQ Routes™ and TomTom XL 340 IQ Routes™ bring leading technologies previously only available on TomTom’s top-end TomTom GO* series, to the TomTom ONE and TomTom XL series for the first time. Additionally, the two new models have been revised and feature a high-quality black finish and refreshed user interface.

“The release of TomTom ONE 140 and TomTom XL 340 demonstrates the commitment of TomTom to improving the daily driving experience of New Zealanders,” says Chris Kearney, Marketing Manager, TomTom New Zealand and Australia. “Unique to TomTom, IQ Routes allows drivers to take those routes that only well-informed locals know. In addition, Spoken Street Names improves driver confidence and safety by clearly announcing the street name for the next turn.”

Driving with TomTom IQ Routes™ ensures all users automatically obtain the most reliable travel and delay times on the screen of their device. Depending on the time of the week or hour of the day drivers set off, the most efficient route will be calculated for that moment. It takes into account any factors that can delay drivers’ journeys based on facts derived from years of gathering anonymous historic speed measurements.

Spoken Street Names
The new TomTom ONE 140 and Tom XL 340 include text-to-speech technology for spoken street names. This means the TomTom GPS device clearly announces the name of the street to turn into, resulting in a much safer and relaxed driving experience.

In addition to the above mentioned features, the new TomTom ONE 140 and TomTom XL 340 devices include the following:

    - 3.5” touchscreen (TomTom ONE 140) or 4.3” wide touchscreen (TomTom XL 340)
    - TomTom’s newest user menu with high quality icons
    - matching black EasyPort™ mount that easily folds to fit in any bag or shirt pocket
    - the Latest GeoSmart map of New Zealand (Winter 2009 edition)
    - TomTom Map Share™ technology so users can instantly make map corrections on their device and share those with others
    - TomTom HOME, the free desktop application to keep users’ devices up-to-date at all times. New maps, safety camera locations or software versions can be downloaded and users can personalise their device by installing and sharing new, fun content such as voices and car icons
    - TomTom Help Me! menu and extensive safety features to help in case of a wide range of difficulties, including direct access to emergency and road-side assistance services.
    - Safety cameras – the most up to date red light and speed camera locations available.

The new TomTom ONE 140 and TomTom XL 340 IQ Routes editions are expected to be available in stores across New Zealand before June 2009. A further announcement will be made just prior to the models being available.

* IQ Routes and Spoken Street Names are currently only available in New Zealand on the TomTom GO 720, TomTom GO 730 and TomTom GO 930
