Tomtom Satellite Navigation

The Tomtom satellite navigation system is ideal for those people who are always on the move into the unknown, providing nigh on pin point accuracy towards the destination. Its database holds routes and directions for over 16 countries, and comes in three different options suitable for all road users. Firstly, the navigation software can be linked up to PDA’s and Pocket PCs, which means people can make the best use of their existing hardware. Or there is an all in one portable device which can be mounted from car to car. Finally, Tomtom also offers mobile phone services, for those who wish to turn their mobiles into their very own navigational system. Tomtom users can download a vast array of updates for their devices, which can be added as and when they are needed, and come as optional extras.

These include traffic information, new maps, safety camera positioning, weather updates, scenic route finders, buddies (lets you know if your friends are in the vicinity), voices packages (want bugs bunny to tell you where to turn? Or simply a friendly voice with local dialect), and audio books readily available to listen to for long journeys. All of these options provide real value for money. The Tomtom devices use GPS technology to pinpoint exactly where you are in the world, and by linking this to the appropriate section of road map from its huge on board database from maps around the world it shows you exactly where you are, in perfect 3D motion. Therefore not only does the Tomtom safely guide you to your destination, the fact that so many updates and ‘subs’ are available means you reach your target in the most fun and relaxed way possible. Tomtom id also one of the first satellite navigation systems to incorporate full postcodes, meaning it will take you right to the exact address, rather than simply the area you are looking for.

Tomtom provides a great advantage over other similar devices due to its touch screen properties, and the fact that it is a standalone piece of equipment, needing no wiring or permanent fixations to do its job. All in all, its relatively cheap price makes this product great value for money, and a great addition to any car.
