What type of products does TomTom Sat Nav offer?
There are two types of products currently offered by TomTom sat nav and these are navigation devices, which are stand-alone TomTom sat nav units, and navigation software that can be installed on a wide range of mobile devices.
Both products use a standard TomTom sat nav interface that uses a slanted bird’s-eye view of the map, although the TomTom sat nav interface does offer a direct overhead view of the map as well. The TomTom sat nav units use a GPS receiver that allows the device to display the exact location and once you have entered your destination the TomTom sat nav provides both spoken and visual direction on how to get to the location you have chosen.
Some of the TomTom sat nav systems allow for mobile devices to be integrated using Bluetooth and will provide data regularly updating maps of traffic congestion on the route you are taking and can even provide alternative routes on your TomTom sat nav device to avoid congested areas.
