TomTom Gas Price Service - Cheaper Gas at your Fingertips

TomTomlogoSM.jpg

Quick article in the Baltimore Sun today about the Gas service on the TomTom 930 - which is also available on the TomTom 720/920. The TomTom gas service is available to purchase for $15 per year, and you can sign up through TomTom HOME when on your desktop computer. This columnist plugged his TomTom into the computer to download gas prices and took them with him. They are also available over the air when you have a compatible phone and data plan. I think the article is a good read for anyone who wants to go after the Fuel Prices service from TomTom. I can't see me being diligent enough to connect my GPS to the computer to download prices, so I would need to have a compatible phone; over the air is probably the way to go.

The Sun found that there were a few stations that were very much out of date, which is too bad. I have seen using the Dash Express that there is a lag, but it is noted next to the price, so you can use that as a gauge of how trustworthy the data is. With that type of feature, I think that the service is helpful and can save a bit when searching for decent gas prices.
