TomTom has announced the launch of the New TomTom ONE 3RD EDITION in the UK. It claims to combine even greater ease of use and comes with TomTom’s new Map Share technology and the latest map guarantee.

TomTom Map Share lets users share improvements, daily, automatically and easily by hooking their unit up to their PC and using TomTom HOME – TomTom’s free software application.

Improvements come in with better trip guidance features - the TomTom ONE 3RD EDITION recalculates the route of the driver more quickly, in case he wants to deviate from it or a roadblock occurs.

The "Find Alternative" option adds maximum flexibility to the driver in planning his route. Also, current street names can be displayed whilst travelling.

Safety features have been added, the "Help Me!" menu includes information such as the way to the nearest hospital, car maintenance information and first aid instructions. Fixed safety camera alerts are now included.

Drivers can choose from a host of extras such as the optional RDS-TMC traffic antenna accessory. Also, a number of personalisation options, such as safety camera warnings, special navigation voices, POIs and more can be downloaded via TomTom HOME.

The model boasts a 3.5-inch touchscreen, 2-hour out of car battery, measures 96 x 82 x 25mm and weighs 174 grams.

The New TomTom ONE 3RD EDITION is available now. Pricing will be £149 for the Regional version and £179 for the European version.
