TomTom releases free map updates for its portable navigation devices

TomTom, one of the biggies in GPS navigation and digital mapping, today announced the release of its latest and most updated maps for the Indian sub-region. From now onwards, TomTom is offering a free map update service for all TomTom VIA series devices upon validation at www.tomtom.com/getstarted.

The maps are user friendly and easy to download from MyTomTom with no complicated file management processes involved. TomTom’s free software application also helps customers to efficiently manage, and personalize their content and services. The new maps contain the most up to date information, which includes details and street coverage of over 5,000 cities.
