AMSTERDAM — (BUSINESS WIRE) — February 11, 2015 — TomTom (TOM2) today extends its reach in Central and Eastern Europe with the launch of TomTom Traffic in Greece, Hungary and Slovakia. Now, 46 countries around the world have access to world-class traffic information from TomTom.

“Traffic congestion is an issue for many countries around the world, including Greece, Hungary and Slovakia,” said Ralf-Peter Schäfer, Head of Traffic at TomTom. “The launch of TomTom Traffic gives drivers, the automotive industry and governments a concrete way to tackle traffic congestion in their market. Our aim is to be the preferred provider of traffic services in every market we operate in.”
