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.
