TomTom Gives Away Daily Map Updates on All Devices

Map Share community updates help drivers avoid delays on route.

TomTom is enabling all of its 60 million portable navigation devices to receive free daily map changes via the TomTom Map Share community. Map Share enables drivers to keep their maps up-to-date by making immediate changes on their device and to receive similar updates from the Map Share community around the world. Map Share was previously only available on a limited number of TomTom devices.

Map Share technology enables drivers to keep the TomTom map on their device up-to-date with immediate changes in their area. Dynamic road changes, such as changed speed limits, new street names, blocked roads and new traffic directions can be updated directly on the device. Drivers then have the choice to share those road changes with TomTom and the broader Map Share community. All TomTom customers can now download daily Map Share changes for free.

Map Share enables people to quickly and easily report and share the most frequent road changes. More structural, long-term changes such as the addition of roads or roundabouts are validated and updated within TomTom’s maps and made available on a quarterly basis. TomTom applies a hybrid approach to map-making that includes the combination of authoritative sources, such as field collection, government data or satellite imagery, with community input to ensure its maps accurately reflect reality.

Availability
Map Share is already available for many TomTom customers. Starting today, all TomTom Start, VIA and GO customers will be able to receive free daily map changes form the TomTom Map Share Community via a simple, free software update. See more GPS devices.
