TomTom High Definition Traffic

TomTom HD Traffic
The announcement came today from TomTom of a new HD (high def) traffic service which is initially available in the Netherlands. The service will cover about 10 times the amount of roads that regular TomTom traffic covers which will allow for far better route planning and alternative routes to more accurately be created.

The service uses anonymous GSM signalling which comes via a SIM card for Vodafone. The first unit to ship will be the TomTom ONE XL HD Traffic available in NL in November followed early next year in the UK.

I have used the TomTom traffic before and although it was impressive with some of the routing around the congestion, I often wondered about routing on smaller roads. The HD version should cover a lot more and make journeys even smoother.
