History

TomTom Navigator 6 on Treo 650

TomTom Go 500
TomTom ONE

The company released its rst navigator product, TomTom Navigator, in 2002, for Windows CE-powered
PDAs, bundled with car cradle and GPS receiver.[5] Version 2 of Navigator was released in 2003, followed in
March 2004 by TomTom Navigator 3 for Windows CE,
with live trac data available on subscription, downloaded over the phone/PDAs data connection.

The company was founded in 1991 and, until 1996, developed business-to-business applications such as meter
reading and bar-code reading. Subsequently, the company moved its focus to PDA software for the consumer market. Early mapping software included EnRoute, Citymaps and Routeplanner.

HISTORY

NavCore 6 was made available as an update to v5 all-inone devices in summer 2006, and to Navigator users in
August 2006. Text-to-speech was supported only on the
910.
In September 2006 the revised NavCore v6-powered
ONE was released.[11] An updated RIDER was released
in May 2007, and a 4.3 in widescreen ONE XL. Aside
from the larger screen, this added support for an RDSTMC receiver to the existing ONE. Compared with the
510 and 710, the ONE XL, with slightly larger screen, did
not have hands-free calling capability, and had a slower
CPU, fewer bundled accessories and a lower price.
TomTom Go 710

The GO x20 range released in Q3 2007 had NavCore v7,


the 4.3 in screen of the ONE XL, built-in ash storage and
an SD card slot. V7 had Map Share, allowing drivers to
notify TomTom of closed roads, and for other drivers to
share those updates and speech recognition. All x20s included FM transmitter and an MP3 player. Launch models were the 520 and 720, while the 920, released Q4
2007, added Enhanced Positioning Technology, which
estimated vehicle position when out of GPS range such
as when travelling through tunnels. Text-to-speech was
supported across the range.

In January 2004 TomTom Navigator for Palm OS was


released, using NavCore, a cross-platform navigation engine still used as of 2015. Their rst all-in-one device, the TomTom GO, based on NavCore version 4.1,
was released in March 2004. It had a 3.5 in 320x240
screen, 200 MHz CPU, 32MB of RAM and integrated
SD reader,[6] and was substantially cheaper than other allin-one solutions, at 499 in the UK,[7] and by year-end

TomTom expanded their range of NavCore 5 devices
with the ruggedized Rider (for motorcycle users), and the
budget ONE, in late 2005. Both devices used the SirfStar III GPS chipset, for much better GPS reception than
previous devices. The ONE was also signicantly slimmer than the earlier GO devices, at the expense of shorter
battery endurance.[9]

2 Products

2.1 TomTom GO
The TomTom GO is an all-in-one GPS navigation device.
It has a touch screen, speaker, USB port, internal Lithium
ion battery, and comes with TomTom HOME software. It
charges, synchronizes, and updates its data by connecting
to a Windows or Mac PC running the TomTom HOME
software via USB cable. Most models (and all new models) have Bluetooth transceivers that allow connection to
a smartphone. This allows it to make and receive calls.
Bluetooth equipped models are able to receive trac (using TMC, as the TomTom Go Live 1000)[15] and weather
updates using the TomTom Plus service on phones with
DUN data service.

Services

6.1

TomTom PLUS

The company oers fee-based services under the name


TomTom PLUS, which include services to warn drivers
about speed cameras, provide weather updates, change
voices and provide trac alerts. Currently the fees are
only for European countries.
Trac data is also available to subscribers in many parts
of Europe and the US via a bluetooth-enabled cell phone
with Internet service or an add-on aerial, which picks
up RDS data (broadcast on FM radio frequencies) oering trac information without the requirement for a data
connection. The TomTom Plus service is not compatible
with Apples iPhone.

6.2

TomTom LIVE Services

SERVICES

The information is merged by TomTom and algorithms


are used to improve the data and lter out anomalous
readings. The system sends updates to all HD Trac
users every three minutes. Users can receive the service through a connected navigation device, or through
a specially designed antenna. Most current devices receive the updated road congestion conditions automatically. Rerouting can be set to be transparent to the user
with the only sign that the route has been changed due
to a trac jam being a sound indication from the device
and a changed ETA.
The system was rst launched in the Netherlands in 2007,
and expanded to the United Kingdom, France, Germany and Switzerland in 2008. In mid-2011 TomTom
live services, including HD Trac are available in the
United States, South Africa, New Zealand and the following 17 European countries: Austria, Belgium, Denmark,
Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg,
Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden,
Switzerland and the United Kingdom.

6.3

Map Share

Map Share is a proprietary map technology launched by


TomTom in June 2007. Map Share allows users to make
changes to the maps on their navigation devices and share
them with others. It allows drivers to make changes to
their maps directly on their navigation devices. Drivers
can block or unblock streets, change the direction of trafc, edit street names and add, edit or remove points of
interest (POIs). Improvements can be shared with other
users through TomTom HOME, TomToms content management software.
An online version called Map Share Reporter is on the
TomTom website.

Travel time data is stored in Historical Speed Proles, one


for each road segment, covering large motorways, main
roads and also small local roads. Historic Speed Proles
are part of the digital map and are updated with every
new map release. They give insight into real-world trac
patterns. This is a fact-based routing system based on
measured travel times, compared to most other methods
which use speed limits or assumed speeds.
In September 2008, map upgrade v8.10 was released for
x20 series models, extending the IQ Routes feature to
those devices[62] with a free software update using TomTom Home.[63]

across TomTom devices; while most maps are available
for most modern devices, a compatible version must be
used. Version numbers have a 3-digit number identifying the major version, a dot, and a 4-digit build number.
Major version 940, for example, is available for most regions and most devices, but dierent builds are available
