Happy fifth birthday TomTom GO!

TomTom, the navigation solutions provider, has announced that it has been exactly five years since it launched its first all in one portable navigation device. The launch of the first TomTom GO marked the start of an era that made navigation available for every car driver. TomTom’s intuitive user interface, the ease of use, smart routing and the fact that it works straight out of the box have remained at the core of each product development cycle and product introduction.

Since 2004, TomTom has launched dozens of new portable navigation devices, including the TomTom ONE and TomTom XL series, and the successors of the original TomTom GO. The TomTom ONE series is still the world’s best selling portable navigation device. In total, the products have won more than 1,000 awards and test reviews to date, and TomTom has over 30 million users around the globe.

Harold Goddijn CEO of TomTom, stated: “We are humbled, thrilled and extremely motivated about the leading role TomTom has played in igniting and driving the PND market in the past five years. Despite the changes the industry has seen in just five years, TomTom’s focus has remained the same; optimising the driving experience by delivering dynamic route guidance that is relevant to every driver’s journey. You can count on us to continue with this strategy.”
