TomTom MyDrive is adding a new level of device integration to the company’s GPS units.
You can now use your smartphone, tablet or PC to plan routes, view real-time traffic and to send destinations to your TomTom GPS. Once the route is chosen on your device, you can hop in your car and take off without even touching the GPS. New features will are also likely to pop up in the future, as TomTom is leaving the MyDrive platform open to third-party developers.
The new system also brings other functions, such as alerting you when it is time to leave to make sure you arrive at a certain destination on time based on current traffic conditions. You can also review traffic conditions on your phone anytime. Favorite destinations, such as home or work, can now be viewed on any of the connected devices.
TomTom MyDrive is available as an app for iOS and Android or on computers at a dedicated website.
