Effortless combination of Navigation, Two-Way Data Communication and

Amsterdam, 15 March 2007 – TomTom, the world’s largest portable navigation
solution provider, today reveals it is extending its TomTom WORK product portfolio
with the new TomTom GO 715: the world’s first portable navigation device with an
integrated GPRS modem and SIM card.
From April 2007, the TomTom GO 715 will be available with TomTom WEBFLEET - a
web based vehicle location tool, as part of the new TomTom WORK COMPACT
solution for owners of commercial vehicles.*
The new TomTom GO 715 features TomTom’s award winning software, precise doorto-door navigation across Europe and a built-in GPRS modem and SIM card for outof-the box connected navigation services. The built-in GPRS modem and SIM card of
the TomTom GO 715 ensure that users can send messages and location information
between vehicles on the road and the TomTom WEBFLEET application more easily
than ever before. Additionally, drivers have continuous and ultra-fast access to
TomTom’s most up-to-date traffic information. Fast and accurate traffic information
is of particular importance for TomTom WORK users.
“This is a world’s first and presents a major step for TomTom towards making
connected navigation services a reality for a much wider audience of companies and
their drivers,” says Harold Goddijn, chief executive officer. “TomTom WORK
COMPACT is a fully integrated, plug & GO solution that does not require any
specialist installation, dramatically reducing the total cost for connected services.”
