The new TomTom ONE 3rd Edition has been announced. It combines even greater ease of use with quality navigation at a very affordable price. The New TomTom ONE 3RD EDITION, comes with TomTom’s Map Share technology, latest map guarantee and an optional RDS-TMC traffic antenna. These are the two main changes, oh, that and the new lower list price of $249 in the US. The unit will still use high sensitivity chipsets, and has some nice interface improvements like the “Help Me” button, and the ability to display current street names as well as the street you are going to turn onto.

In talking to Jocelyn Vigreux, President of TomTom USA earlier this week about the launch of the TomTom ONE 3rd Edition, he said that putting MapShare on the TomTom ONE will grow the user base quickly. The large user base will make MapShare a more powerful platform of up to date map data due to the increasing network effect.

“The New TomTom ONE 3RD EDITION is the answer for drivers who want a PND that is easy to use, has the latest maps and technology, and is affordable,” said Harold Goddijn, TomTom’s chief executive officer. “With this introduction, we are offering customers a new entry level navigation device of even higher quality.”

Easy to use
The new TomTom ONE 3RD EDITION combines ease of use, portability, TomTom’s patented touch screen technology and award winning software. It also features a sleek light-weight design and is ultra compact so that users can carry it to and from their cars.

Unique TomTom Map Share™ technology and most accurate maps
Just as users of the recently launched New TomTom GO range, users of the New TomTom ONE 3rd EDITION can also now easily and instantly improve their own maps with TomTom Map Share™. TomTom Map Share™ lets users share improvements, daily, automatically and easily via TomTom HOME – TomTom’s free software application. TomTom has the world’s largest satellite navigation community with over 10 million users. TomTom Map Share™ users can contribute and exchange all their improvements amongst each other, making the best maps available for all of them. TomTom Map Share™ means TomTom drivers can always have the most up-to-date maps and inside local knowledge at their fingertips.

The latest maps are preloaded on the device. In case a newer release becomes available when the customer starts using the device, TomTom gives the user a free downloadable update.
Comprehensive trip guidance features
The New TomTom ONE 3RD EDITION quickly recalculates the route of the driver, 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.

Extensive industry leading range of safety features
Safety is a key priority in the development of all TomTom products. The recently launched New TomTom GO range and the New TomTom ONE 3RD EDITION come with uniquely designed safety features so drivers always have direct access to extensive safety and roadside assistance information wherever they go. The extensive ‘Help Me!’ menu includes information such as the way to the nearest hospital, car maintenance information and first aid instructions. Also, to enable the driver to drive in the safest way, fixed safety camera alerts are now included on the new TomTom ONE 3RD EDITION.

Traffic information and other smart extras
With the New TomTom ONE 3RD EDITION, drivers can choose from a host of smart extras, making sure the destination is reached in a relaxed and enjoyable way. Drivers can now have easy access to traffic information with the optional RDS-TMC traffic antenna accessory.
