TomTom is world renown for delivering high quality map based products and the introduction of real time traffic services in these new countries will offer up-to-date information on road conditions such as traffic congestions, roadworks and closures. With this information, drivers will be able to find suitable routes that help them to avoid the worst areas and enable them to save significant time during their journeys.

“Traffic congestion remains a major problem for many countries around the world – particularly in larger metropolitan areas,” said Ralf-Peter Schäfer, Head of Traffic and Travel Information at TomTom. “Argentina and Colombia are no different and now we can offer data to enable informed routing decisions taking into account the dynamically changing situation on the road from TomTom’s real-time traffic information”.
