TomTom Introduces the New TomTom ONE Range
~ Two new models with slimmer design and choice of regional and European maps ~
IFA, 30 August 2006 – TomTom, Europe’s leading personal in-car navigation solution provider, today announces the two successors to the world’s best selling portable navigation device, the TomTom ONE. TomTom ONE (Europe) features complete door-to-door navigation anywhere in Western Europe and TomTom ONE (Regional) comes with maps for a country or region. Starting from €299, the new TomTom ONE models are TomTom’s entry level all-in-one navigation products and will be available from major retailers across Europe.
Combining ease of use, portability, TomTom’s patented touch screen technology and award winning software, the new TomTom ONE models fit in any shirt pocket and can easily be taken from car to car. The new range does not compromise on screen size and quality and features a sleek light-weight design (only 174 grams) and ultra compact measurements (96mm width x 82mm height x 25mm depth).
“TomTom ONE has become one of the most popular consumer electronics goods across Europe, outselling any other portable navigation device on the market.” said Harold Goddijn, TomTom’s chief executive officer. “The new TomTom ONE range is TomTom’s most compelling entry level product offering, and demonstrates TomTom’s commitment to making navigation a reality for everyone”.
In addition, drivers have access to all TomTom PLUS services including safety camera alerts, real-time traffic and weather reports, updates on road conditions and the new Buddies feature. Users can also take advantage of TomTom HOME, the software package that efficiently manages content between one’s PC or MAC and TomTom.
