  • TomTom Commuter concept

    Dutch navigation specialist TomTom recently held an event where it showcased some of its up-and-coming technology, the highlight of which was the new TomTom Commuter device that has been designed to help take the guesswork out of daily driving. Most commuters know all the different routes to their daily destinations, and therefore do not believe they need turn-by-turn navigation. However, due to changing traffic conditions, they never know for certain which of their routes is the quickest at any given moment. This is where TomTom Commuter, which is still in the concept phase, will come in...

  • TomTom GO LIVE Top Gear edition cancelled
    UPDATE: TomTom Ceases Production Of Top Gear-Branded Units

    Earlier this week, we told you about a new, Top Gear-branded satnav system from TomTom. Unfortunately, someone failed to clear the licensing of Jeremy Clarkson's voice with BBC's editorial staff, and now, TomTom has been forced to cease production of the devices. It's a classic problem of the left...

    TomTom's Top Gear Edition Puts Jeremy Clarkson & The Stig On Your Dash

    We admit that we've been critical of TomTom, Garmin, and other aftermarket satnavs. After all, in the age of smartphones and factory-installed telematics systems, dashtop devices can seem as outdated as your grandmother's VCR. But you have to give them props for trying, and TomTom is trying very...

  • Garmin Darth Vader Premium Voice and Graphics Bundle
    Darth Vader Crosses Over To The Dark Side (AKA Garmin)

    A little over a year ago, we told you about a licensing deal that brought familiar Star Wars voices like Darth Vader and Yoda to TomTom voice-navigation. Now, however, it appears that Darth Vader has become a double-agent, because he's now on Garmin, too. Everyone's second-favorite man in black...

    2012 FIAT 500 Apple iPad App Is A Source Of All Knowledge

    The 2012 FIAT 500 is one of the most distinctive cars on the road. The car has been on sale in Europe for a few years now and they're already everywhere, and early impressions are good in America too. If you've seen a few on the road and want to know more, what better way than "FIAT Source"? It's a...

  • John Cleese in TomTom's 'Break Free' campaign
    Break Free Of Traffic Jams With John Cleese & TomTom: Video

    Everybody loves John Cleese, right? Beyond his work on the popular Monty Python and Fawlty Towers TV shows -- not to mention many memorable film appearances -- he's written for stage and screen, and he's managed to inject some much-needed humor into the political climate of both the U.S. and...

  • Homer Simpson

    Given the vast number of free navigation apps available for Apple, Android, Blackberry, and Windows handsets, we've been more than a little skeptical about the future of satnav makers like Garmin and TomTom. After all, why should consumers shell out for a fairly limited piece of hardware when they can get similar functionality for nothing on a device they already own? Thankfully, a new app upgrade indicates that TomTom may have finally seen the light. The company has now migrated its popular Homer Simpson voice pack to the TomTom app for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. You might recall that...

  • Garmin Nuvi 660
    Personal Sat-Nav Devices No Longer A Hot In-Car Gadget?

    Not so long ago, companies such as Garmin and TomTom were enjoying strong sales in the PND, or 'Personal Navigation Device' market. Offering inexpensive personal satellite navigation systems for use in your car, they were a popular choice for those not willing to spend sometimes ten times the price...
