Hosting Itineraries

Print 

To publish your itinerary via your website you need to create an 'Add to TomTom' button. This button contains a special link that will start TomTom HOME and install the itinerary on your customer's TomTom Device.

Before creating a button, you need to decide if you are going to host the itinerary on your own web site or if you want TomTom to host it for you. Click here if you want TomTom to host your itinerary.

If you decide to host the itinerary yourself, you need to create an XML file that TomTom HOME needs for the itinerary installation.

As shown above, the 'Add to TomTom' button sends TomTom HOME an install command and the location of the XML file. TomTom HOME uses the information in the XML file to display information about the itinerary as well as to locate the zip file which contains your itinerary, in order to install it.

To create an XML file, copy the example provided and edit it to suit your own data values where necessary.

Next step: See a code example for a itinerary XML file or create a website button for downloading your itinerary.
