TomTom Lifetime Traffic Updates


TomTom has also announced Lifetime Traffic Updates. This new feature/offer will start to become available in some new models introduced in 2010.

“Traffic is one of the most common inconveniences every driver experiences,” said Jocelyn Vigreux, president of TomTom Inc. “Now, using Lifetime Traffic Updates, TomTom users can always travel confidently knowing they will be alerted to the most current traffic information.”

It looks like this will possibly be done through a new type of traffic receiver. TomTom describes the traffic receiver as a traffic receiver integrated into a power cord– similar to how Garmin builds many of their traffic receivers. The first devices to use this lifetime traffic feature will reportedly come out in early Q2 of this year.

  1. I have a TomTom930 with Traffic it appears that my subscription has expired. many other vendors offer lifetime traffic when the unit is purchased. from a Press Release that i just read from January 7, 2010 they plan on offering it on selected units? so they want to charge me 17% of what I paid for it just for a 1 year map update! I told lots of my friends about my 930, wish the 930 Live was available in the US
