It started with a simple idea: Make digital navigation accessible for everyone.
Four like-minded entrepreneurs founded TomTom in 1991. By 2004, their dream of portable navigation was a reality for millions of drivers around the world. The first TomTom satnav became one of the fastest-selling consumer technology devices in history, making our name synonymous with navigation.
Thirty years and billions of drives later, we are the leading independent geolocation technology specialist. Our decades of insights go into everything we do – maps, digital cockpit solutions, navigation software, routing and ETAs, APIs and traffic data for all.
In our ongoing quest to help people, goods and vehicles understand their place in the world so they can go further in it, we’ve been working on breaking the barrier to real-time mapping.
Together with our customers and partners, we’re collecting resources from around the globe to create the largest, richest geolocation database available. All to make fresh, accurate maps that help people find their way in the world.
