Concord, MA – June 2, 2003 – TomTom®, a leading provider of personal navigation systems based on Microsoft® Windows® Powered Pocket PCs, today announced its presence in the United States with the launch of TomTom Navigator, the industry’s most comprehensive door-to-door personal navigation system. Realizing the growing market opportunity for location-based services in the U.S., TomTom established its new U.S. operations based in Concord, Massachusetts, and named former Psion executive Jocelyn Vigreux as president of TomTom USA.



“With TomTom Navigator, we offer an affordable and flexible solution to a universal problem, how to get from A to B,” said Jocelyn Vigreux, president of TomTom. “TomTom Navigator is a proven success in Europe, where tens of thousands of European citizens are currently relying on its state-of-the-art navigation capabilities to find their way. With TomTom Navigator’s launch in the U.S., we look forward to improving the lives of business and leisure travelers who require a highly dependable, user-friendly navigation system to meet their planned and unplanned travel needs.”



With a highly accurate digitized roadmap system that works in conjunction with an extremely precise GPS receiver, TomTom Navigator is an efficient navigation tool for business and leisure travelers alike. TomTom Navigator uses very accurate and fully attributed turn-by-turn map data through a relationship with Tele Atlas, a worldwide leading provider of digital map databases and real-time traffic information in the United States. This combination offers the industry’s most intuitive user interface with features and functionality that address all personal navigation needs in one comprehensive solution, including:



Voice guided route instructions work out the best route while suggesting a new route if the user deviates from the suggested route.

Door-to-door navigation through the use of house numbers and postal codes makes it possible to plan door-to-door journeys from the user’s current location.

2D or 3D views give personal choice for directions via a clear instruction screen.

Four million Points of Interest provides flexibility to make dynamic changes during road trips while keeping users on route.

Integration with Microsoft Outlook™ gives the user the option to navigate directly to any address in their contact database.

Easy to use functionality ensures a consistent, personalized experience immediately.

Highly accurate TomTom GPS receivers support both standard and Bluetooth GPS signals, increasing the user’s options to use the system away from the car.



“Tele Atlas has over the years invested substantially in developing high-quality digital maps for navigation systems,” said George Fink, president of Tele Atlas North America and statutory director of Tele Atlas N.V. in the function of chief operating officer worldwide. “TomTom Navigator has been instrumental in the development of the personal navigation segment that now represents one of our fastest growing product groups."



Pricing and Availability

TomTom Navigator will be available from major retailers beginning in June 2003 at a starting price of $319. This will include the TomTom Navigator software, cabling, GPS receiver, and mounting kit.



The first retailers to offer TomTom Navigator include J&R Music and Computer World and MobilePlanet. For more information about TomTom Navigator, please visit www.tomtom.com.
