TomTom, an in-car location and navigation products and services suppliers, has decided to up the ante in the Indian market. They have opened an expanded map making facility at their new office in Pune. Their focus will be on delivering fresh and accurate navigation content and routing intelligence to the Indian market and maintain global standards.

Over 5,000 cities and towns across India have been covered by TomTom maps. They use multiple data sources, which include crowd sourcing and community input tools as well. One of their popular products is Landmark Navigation, which allows a user to locate a particular destination by utilizing known landmarks in the area. So, any monument or park or even a chowk that can help the user find the place have been mapped.

TomTom India’s Managing Director, Jocelyn Vigreux is delighted with the response TomTom products have received in India so far and says, “The opening of our new map making facility in Pune will enable us to further improve our map and popular features such as landmark navigation and emergency help”.

The areas covered by TomTom maps provide details right up to street level details and are automotive-grade quality maps. The Pune office is equipped with a community tools development and engineering centre. This will allow them to build and integrate the most innovative tools in mapping technology. Encouraging community inputs will also help in ensuring that the data on the map is up-to-date at all times.
