TomTom To Start Offering Devices With Lifetime Maps and Traffic Updates
TomTom will soon start selling devices that have a lifetime map and traffic updates subscription. In the XL and the XXL series, they will come bundled with Lifetime Traffic service and Lifetime Map Update services, or both of them.
This means that the units will be eligible to download quarterly updates using the TeleAtlas map data and POI databases with no additional charge. Devices with TomTom’s Lifetime Traffic devices will receive traffic information every three minutes. [CNET]This article was written by Amit Chowdhry.
