What are the benefits of driving with TomTom Traffic?

  • Gets you to your destination faster. Independent tests have shown that on average, drivers using TomTom Traffic can save up to 18.5% of their journey time1. Your TomTom continuously looks for the fastest route. If traffic changes and there is a better route, you will be the first one to know.

  • Puts you in control. TomTom Traffic creates a vivid picture of traffic conditions as they evolve. With detailed incident reports and real-time congestion information you’ll always know what lies ahead. Helping you to decide whether you are better off staying in the traffic, or taking a detour.

  • Gives you detailed traffic information. TomTom Traffic knows exactly where delays start and end, how fast the traffic is moving and how long the delays are likely to last. And because we understand the bigger picture, we don’t advise you to leave one jam simply to enter another.

How does TomTom Traffic benefit the wider community?

We believe that if 10% of drivers use TomTom Traffic there will be a 'collective effect'. Roads will flow more efficiently and journey times will be reduced for everyone.
