TomTom Launches 30-day Trial of Navigation App for iPhone

Starting today, drivers can experience TomTom’s Navigation app for iPhone for 30 days at a cost of $0.99. The new trial app includes access to TomTom Traffic, helping drivers to get there faster.

The trial app includes all the features and functionality of the latest TomTom Navigation app and includes a subscription to world-class traffic information from TomTom Traffic. TomTom Traffic allows drivers to get to their destination faster with the most precise and accurate real-time information.

The quality of TomTom Traffic is determined by:

1. Road Coverage. TomTom Traffic covers 99.9% of all road types, versus competitive TMC based traffic with only 9% coverage.

2. Reliability of Data. TomTom Traffic uses a leading pool of crowd-sourced data from more than 150 million drivers in North America.

3. Accuracy of reports. TomTom Traffic pinpoints accurate traffic reports in real-time.

4. Update frequency. TomTom Traffic delivers updated traffic info every two minutes.

“For the first time, we are offering iPhone and iPad owners the chance to experience the power of premium TomTom Navigation and TomTom Traffic for themselves,” said Jocelyn Vigreux, President of TomTom, Inc. “Once drivers experience how TomTom can help them avoid traffic and get there faster, we are confident they won’t want to drive without TomTom ever again.”

With the trial app, consumers will enjoy the same turn-by-turn navigation trusted by 70 million drivers, tailored for iPhone and iPad. Maps are stored on the device, so drivers don’t need to worry about mobile data coverage or charges. And with Free Lifetime Maps, updated with each app release, drivers can always navigate with the most accurate TomTom maps. In addition, IQ Routes provides the fastest routes and most accurate arrival times based on the time and date of travel.

The app can be purchased from the iTunes App Store.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
