Tips for a safe and stress-free Easter Break

Johannesburg, 31 March 2009 – With Easter around the corner, many people are planning to go for a short holiday or weekend excursion to the coast, therefore it is worthwhile thoroughly checking the car before setting off. In addition, through TomTom HOME, TomTom’s free desktop application, you can be sure that your TomTom navigation device is up to date, to avoid spending any more time than necessary on the road and instead spend it with family and friends. Driving with a navigation device increases driver’s alertness and reduces stress levels.

Research institutions including the leading US research institute Virginia Tech Transportation Institute and research institute TNO in the Netherlands have proven that satellite navigation has a positive influence on driving behaviour and traffic safety. In addition, driving with a navigation device increases driver’s alertness and reduces stress levels.

Here are some tips for a safe and relaxing Easter break:

    • TomTom is the official navigation partner to the AA. And TomTom’s Help Me menu provides emergency numbers for AA Road services, the nearest police stations, doctors, hospitals, car repair services, pharmacies and veterinary services. In the TomTom device there is a first aid information guide which provides step by step instructions in the event of a car accident, choking and burns or scolding.
    • Avoid unpleasant delays on route to your destination by downloading the latest MapShare™ corrections on your device. TomTom MapShare™ allows users to make corrections to their device and share these with others for free so drivers can be sure to drive around with the most up-to-date map at any time.
    Hands-free calling with high-quality sound system via Bluetooth® on TomTom GO devices allows drivers to keep their eyes firmly on the road whilst making phone calls in the car
    Finding your way in other cities is difficult under all circumstances. So, if you are planning to visit friends or relatives throughout the country or abroad during the Easter break, taking your TomTom device with you can save a lot of time and stress.
    Via TomTom HOME, users can update the latest safety camera locations on their device to be informed well in advance where these are, saving money on fines.
    List of useful places will help to plan the perfect excursion. TomTom’s extensive POI (Point of Interest) database offers many interesting suggestions for the family Easter outings.
