Del

TomTom (TOM2) announces two new smart satnavs today which use your smartphone to enhance their intelligence further. The TomTom VIA 52 and 62 feature a smartphone connection – meaning drivers get much more for their money. The satnavs double as Bluetooth® connected hands-free kits for calling, feature real-time traffic information, and live speed camera alerts1, all at an affordable price.

The highly-praised real-time traffic information means that drivers can avoid sitting in queues, while the live speed camera alerts gets drivers to new locations safely, and stress-free.

After pairing their satnav with their smartphone, drivers can simply slip the phone in their pocket, get in the car and everything is ready to go – leaving them to focus on enjoying the drive. By combining the connected smartphone and satnav, the driver gets the best of both worlds2.

Corinne Vigreux, co-founder and managing director, TomTom Consumer said: “We want drivers to be able to enjoy the journey ahead feeling safe and relaxed. That’s why the new TomTom VIA satnavs come with hands-free calling, and smartphone connectivity. The new devices are also packed with award-winning innovative features, smart routing, and our super-accurate maps – everything needed to drive headache-free.”

Lifetime Maps and Lifetime Traffic3 are also included at no additional cost. This means that drivers don’t need to worry about paying for map updates, or traffic information in the future4.

Drivers can begin planning a journey from the sofa, using TomTom MyDrive. This is a free planning tool available on a smartphone, PC or tablet. Using the MyDrive app, TomTom Traffic Checker sends drivers alerts about the live traffic situation, so worrying about what time to set off is a thing of the past – TomTom takes care of it.

The TomTom VIA 52 and 62 feature 5-inch and 6-inch screens, respectively. The TomTom VIA 52 is available immediately from selected retailers and on the TomTom webstore while the VIA 62 will be on sale from July.
