T-Mobile Germany and TomTom team up to offer mobile navigation solutions
T-Mobile Germany is adding more mobile navigation options to its product range with TomTom MOBILE 5 and TomTom NAVIGATOR 5. The software and hardware platforms provides flexible route planning, voice-activated navigation with instructions in 18 different languages and 3-D maps. Users can define waypoints and the software can guide the driver to points of interest such as nearby hotels, restaurants or car parks

The TomTom software as well as the map of Germany comes pre-installed on a memory card that can be used on smart devices. The GPS (General Positioning System) receiver is connected with the PDA via Bluetooth technology.

T-Mobile is launching several installation packages, for different devices. The TomTom NAVIGATOR 5 is designed for the Windows Mobile-based Pocket PC Phone Edition devices MDA III and MDA compact, while the TomTom MOBILE 5 solution is developed for Windows Mobile-base Smartphones SDA and SDA music.

For users who already own an T-Mobile SDA, SDA music, MDA III or MDA compact, the company is offering the TomTom NAVIGATOR 5 and MOBILE 5 for EUR 249.95 each. These include the GPS receiver, the car charger cable and TomTom software including a map of Germany. This is all that is needed to use the product.

In addition to this package, users who would like to include traffic information in route planning can order the subscription-based TomTom PLUS service. The service costs EUR 39.95 a year for Germany, plus the costs for mobile data. TomTom offers maps for Western Europe for the TomTom NAVIGATOR 5. Users can buy the CD package for EUR 149 and then travel through 18 countries like the Benelux, Italy, Austria, Switzerland, Great Britain, France, Portugal and Scandinavia without getting lost.
