New app proves useful for fleet drivers
TomTom has announced that its portable navigation application for the iPhone will be available for purchase in the iTunes App Store as of this week.
“With TomTom for iPhone,
millions of iPhone users can now benefit from the same easy-to-use and
intuitive interface, turn-by-turn spoken navigation and unique routing
technology that our 30 million portable navigation device users rely on
every day,” said Corinne Vigreux, managing director of TomTom. The
routing technology mentioned actually uses the driving experiences of
other TomTom users to determine the fastest route from one place to
another, rather than making assumptions about travel times based on
distance and speed limits.
The TomTom application provides a portable solution to drivers who are already equipped with an iPhone
without having to purchase additional GPS equipment. Combined with the
phone’s other business functions, it makes the iPhone an extremely
useful device for fleet drivers and managers.
Other features of the TomTom app include:
- Navigation software including fast route planning and clear voice instructions
- Automatic re-routing if a turn is missed
- Route demo or map of route when trip planning
- Latest Tele Atlas maps of the U.S., Canada, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.
