TomTom Maps Reach Industry-Leading Coverage of 35 Million Kilometres

“With the latest map release we are adding significant coverage in emerging countries like Brazil, Russia and India, demonstrating our commitment to a truly global offering” said Maarten van Gool, Managing Director TomTom Licensing. “The latest product release equips our customers with the best coverage and enhanced content globally to power all their location needs.”

TomTom further enhanced its road network database and improved key features throughout Europe. In Western Europe, 74,000 km of roads were added or realigned, including routes that are being built to accommodate the London 2012 Summer Olympics. A new low emission zone feature was added throughout Western Europe to support environmental driving. In Eastern Europe, over 36,000 km of roads were updated in key markets in Russia, Poland and Turkey.

In the Americas, TomTom expanded coverage in growth markets like Brazil where over 100,000 km of roads were realigned – for increased accuracy – and 600,000 Points of Interest were added, ensuring users can easily find businesses, places and people. Customers now benefit from features including specialised lane information and back road designation, which will lead to safer navigation. Additionally, the most up-to-date postal information available in the US and Canada is particularly important for Enterprise and Business customers.

The latest product release resulted in an Address Point uplift totaling more than 1.5 million throughout Asia Pacific, enabling more accurate routing and geocoding in this important region. 3D Landmarks, Landmark Icons, 2D City Maps and Junction Views were also updated, resulting in better visualisation with a more realistic map display.
