TomTom N.V (AEX:TOM2) (Euronext:TOM2) today unveiled the new XL IQ Routes edition2, a successor to the TomTom XL IQ Routes.

The company said that the new XL IQ Routes edition2 features a new simplified menu, along with features such as advanced lane guidance, spoken street names, Map Share and IQ Routes.

TomTom's IQ Routes technology uses real historic car speed measurements from the roads, plus analysis of the time and day of travel to calculate the optimum route.

The XL IQ Routes edition2 has a large 11cm touch screen with a new simplified start menu, which has just two options a[euro]" a[euro]Plan route' or a[euro]Browse map'.

The device includes advanced lane guidance which displays all of the lanes on the device, showing clearly which one driver should take, thereby making navigation simpler and even more effortless. Also, the spoken street names feature enables drivers keep their eyes on the road as the name of the turning they need is spoken out loud.

TomTom also helps drivers navigate with the best quality map at all times. If a new map has been released within 30 days of first using their device, TomTom's latest map guarantee lets drivers download it once for free via TomTom HOME.

In addition, with built-in Map Share technology, drivers can make corrections to their map and download free corrections made by other drivers in the TomTom community.

TomTom said, that more importantly, the new XL IQ Routes edition2 is also fully compatible with TomTom's standard RDS-TMC Traffic service, which transmits traffic information to the device and then plans an alternative route when one is available.

The TomTom XL IQ Routes edition2 will be available from the beginning of April 2010 with a recommended retail price of GBP139 for UK & Ireland and GBP159 for Western Europe.
