TomTom launches free online route planner

Currently available in a closed beta testing program.

TomTom has launched a free online route planner. Currently available in a closed beta testing program, the route planner lets users create a door-to-door route that uses 500 billion historic speed measurements taken from across the world, along with live traffic information to offer what TomTom describes as "precise travel time predictions".

TomTom said it will ensure maps are up to date by transfering map corrections reported by users of the Map Share system on TomTom satnavs to the online route planner.

"Users who do not have a navigation device can now also benefit from our high-quality routing before starting their journey, giving them a chance to plan their day more efficiently than ever before," says Harold Goddijn, TomTom's chief executive officer.

Users that want to take part in the beta testing can register now one TomTom's website. Alternatively, if the trial is successful the online route planner will be rolled out worldwide, although TomTom doesn't have an estimated date for this yet.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
