TomTomKnowing what lies on the road ahead – when you can’t see beyond the next corner – can be a serious problem for drivers. That’s why TomTom has announced an innovative solution to the issue with TomTom Jam Ahead Warnings.

TomTom Jam Ahead Warnings visually and audibly alert drivers to rapidly slowing, or stationary, traffic on the highway ahead, giving the driver the opportunity to brake smoothly, and in time.

Corinne Vigreux, co-founder and managing director, TomTom, said: “We’re constantly striving to make the driving experience safer and more relaxed. TomTom Jam Ahead Warnings is a powerful example of this approach.”

The TomTom Speed Cameras app is already available in 16 countries, and has just launched in a further 26. Drivers around the world rely on the app to deliver highly accurate Fixed and Mobile camera alerts in real time, as well as Average Speed Cameras.

Drivers will especially welcome the average speed check feature, as Average Speed Cameras are becoming increasingly popular with road authorities around the world.

The locations of fixed cameras are provided by TomTom’s highly accurate database, and verified by a TomTom moderation team, while mobile speed cameras are reported and verified by a community of over 5 million drivers.

  1. Does not tell me about the jam ahead feature!? If it exists do I need a Mobile phone with Internet connection.

  2. This is all great technology, but every journey I make over 1 hour my TOMTOM looses data connection and never regains it! so no updates. I would be more impressed to have a 100% working system than this! Complained so many times and all I get is “reload your tomtom” – this does nothing for the problem, which I believe is probably related to the lack of active subscriptions they buy from Vodafone!
