TomTom Launches Three New Automotive PNDs

04 May 2016

TomTom has introduced three new automotive portable navigation devices (PNDs) in order to help drivers more easily determine location-based information, and be safer—by adding average speed limit checks.

The START PNDs include the latest innovations from TomTom in terms of address search, routing and guidance, as well as the inclusion of access to lifetime maps that provide the most up-to-date maps without drivers having to pay for map updates during the lifetime of the product. The three new PNDs also feature a measurement of the average speed on road networks via an average speed check camera. This allows drivers to be aware of the average speed on the road for safer driving.
