Well known European brand TomTom has launched “Via Series” in India recently. This is the first navigation provider to bring Landmark Navigation to India. Packed with innovative features and designed for convenience, the device makes premium navigation experience accessible to everyone. “We realized that in India there is no such enhancing feature in the cars which can make navigatinga pleasurable experience. In Europe we have house numbers, streets and the device simply takes us to the desired destination. In India, we knew it will be hard to locate destinations as per the European standards. So we customized the device TomTomVia 100, Via 120, and Via 125 to bring a higher level of portable navigation device for the Indian consumer – with the maximum quality and convenience,” said Jocelyn Vigreux, General Manager and Senior Vice-President of TomTom India. He further added, “We are setting a new standard for the Indian market and elevating the consumer demand with the exciting new Voice Control functionality and the first ever introduced Landmark Navigation in India.”
Landmark Navigation, Hands-free calling via Bluetooth (optional), Integrated mounting with flip screen, most complete maps of India, advanced lane guidance, spoken street names, voice control (optional), 11cm (4.3”) OR 13cm (5”) touch screen.
The Landmark Navigation functionality will let drivers plan their journey in an easier way; drivers will be able to search for the nearest landmark, whether it's a monument, park or an attraction in a simple way, and let their portable navigation device show them the route. In addition to that, the Via 120 and Via 125 models will have newly introduced Voice Control functionality which will let the drivers operate their TomTom portable navigation device simply by talking to them. Drivers will be able to speak commands and navigate with ease – all without taking their hands off the wheel or their eyes off the road.
Other than this, the brand has also added the convenience of a new foldaway mount which is integrated with the device. This mounting system has been specifically designed and attaches to the windscreen with ease and, using the optional mounting disk, drivers can turn the device 180 degrees. A sensor flips the screen the right way up, enabling them to position it wherever suits them best.
For women on Wheel
We all are aware of the not-so-safe capital city of India and other metros too where women sometimes need to drive back home at odd hours. TomTom is offering the added benefit of a 'Help Me!' emergency menu, putting local emergency service information at their fingertips. From hospitals to roadside assistance, this feature offers everything a driver would need to stay safe on the roads.
