TomTom announces beta online Route Planner


The free web based Route Planner allows users to pre-plan a route and obtain precise travel and arrival times.

In this first phase, the TomTom online Route Planner will be accessible for a selected group of users taking part in a beta test program that started last week.

TomTom's online Route Planner gives users door-to-door route planning options to any address, taking into account real-time and historic information on traffic flows throughout the day.

It incorporates dynamic traffic information (through HD TrafficTM) as well as 500 billion historic speed measurements of roads across the world (through IQ RoutesTM). This allows users to pre-plan their routes based on facts, rather than estimates, resulting in very precise travel time predictions.

In addition, map corrections made by TomTom users through Map ShareTM are regularly uploaded to the Route Planner, so users always have access to the most accurate routes based on the latest map information.

Depending on the success and feedback from the beta program, the TomTom online Route Planner will gradually be rolled out to users worldwide.

The route planner is currently available in six languages: English, French, German, Dutch, Italian and Spanish.
