Tom Tom online Route Planner
In a world first, the TomTom online Route Planner gives users door-to-door route planning options to any address, taking into account real-time and historic information on traffic flows throughout the day. It uniquely incorporates dynamic traffic information (through HD Traffic) as well as 500 billion historic speed measurements of roads across the world (through IQ Routes). This allows users to pre-plan their routes based on facts, rather than estimates, resulting in very precise travel time predictions. In addition, map corrections that are made by TomTom users through Map Share are regularly uploaded to the Online Route Planner, so users always have access to the most accurate routes based on the latest map information.

“The introduction of the Tom Tom online Route Planner marks an important step in our strategy to make our award-winning navigation available for all users, regardless of the platform that is used”, says Harold Goddijn, TomTom’s Chief Executive Officer. “Users that do not have a navigation device can now also benefit from our high-quality routing before starting their journey, giving them a chance to plan their day better than ever before”.
Route information available in six languages
Depending on the success and feedback of the BETA programme, the online Route Planner will gradually be rolled out to users worldwide. The route planner is currently available in six languages including English, German, French, Italian, Spanish and Dutch. The online Route Planner will feature HD Traffic in Germany, UK, France, Netherlands and Switzerland. In other countries, TomTom’s original traffic service (based on GPRS and TMC) may be included depending on availability. Check out the free Online route planner at this page.
