#TomTom #Travel #GetHomeFaster #ad

We love to travel in our family! I personally don’t know what I ever did without having a GPS system. Oh wait, I used to print out maps online and use the Thomas Guide and had no really effective way to get around traffic and congested areas when traveling. Not anymore! Now we can travel safely and quickly with the TomTom!

#TomTom #Travel #GetHomeFaster #ad

Let’s admit it, we all hate traffic, right? Heck yes we do! It sucks up precious time that we’d much rather spend with our family, a good movie or massage. As one of the world’s leading traffic intelligence companies with one of the largest historical databases of traffic, TomTom has the the most up-to-date accurate traffic information that can help you easily navigate around traffic and get home (or to your destination) faster so you can spend less time on the road and more time doing the things you love.

We love the TomTom GO 600! Not only does it have the most up-to-date accurate traffic information, but TomTom’s database covers 99.9% of the roads (more than any other navigation service out there)! TomTom is the preferred traffic intelligence resource widely used by local government and traffic agencies to help solve mobility issues.

TomTom even has a new MyDrive cloud tool that lets you plan your route before you leave the house and send it directly to your GO device so you can pop in the car and hit the road without having to stop and log in directions. MyDrive has been raved about as one of the best by multiple tech magazines and most recently by ZDNet as “one of the best available.” How awesome is it to be able to plan a route on your phone while at the office or out running errands and then send it to your TomTom GO?  It helps save time on the road so we can get home faster! Pretty sweet, right?

Did you know that according to a 2013 study, the average mom drives her children around for 1,248 miles per year, or the equivalent of two weeks? That’s a lot of time spent driving around! Time is valuable and is something that cannot be bought. TomTom is helping mom gain back precious minutes of her day, which she might normally be spending in traffic, in order to have as much time as possible at home with her children and her family. TomTom helps mom (and her kids) get places she knows faster and safer with the TomTom GO 500/600.
