TomTom claims that this is the first time that users of an embedded navigation system can get new advanced routing features without buying a whole new system.
The updated Carminat TomTom gets IQ Routes and TomTom’s lane guidance feature.
These two features come as part of any new Carminat TomTom map3 which can be easily added to the device, using the removable SD card drive and TomTom’s free desktop software application (TomTom HOME).
This updating method is already used by Carminat TomTom drivers to update all kinds of content, from POIs to voices, on their device. Drivers automatically get the IQ Routes and advanced lane guidance features when they buy their next map or activate their latest map guarantee, which allows them to get the latest map for free within 60 days after they first use their device.
