TomTom introduces High Definition Traffic

Tom Tom device

TomTom just lit up its High Definition Traffic, premium traffic service in The Netherlands.

Announced in parallel is the ONE XL HD Traffic navigator, for what’s a traffic service without a GPS device to take advantage of it? The ONE XL HD Traffic shares the same 4.3-inch LCD of its ONE XL brethren only now with the addition of 1GB of built-in storage and a new SIM card (no activation or configuration required) for live traffic data feeds over Vodafone’s GSM network.

Traffic information collected anonymously from Dutch Vodafone mobile phones and third party traffic authorities is updated every 3 minutes — that’s 5x the traffic updates and 10x the road coverage of typical traffic systems according to TomTom. Available in TomTom’s home country of The Netherlands this month for €399, including a one year HD Traffic subscription renewable for €9.95/month.

An HD Traffic accessory for existing TomTom products will be available in early 2008.
