TomTom Makes Summer Travel Less Stressful (Giveaway)

by Jennifer Sikora

Jennifer here–

My family and I will be taking our first ever road trip this summer to spend a week in Florida. I am extremely excited and cannot wait to hit the highway! I am one of those types of travelers that would rather drive than fly because I love the scenery. This trip however, we are going to have a little bit of help with navigation — thanks to TOM TOM!

Summer Travel Is Less Stressful with TomTom Giveaway

A recent study by TomTom showed that it takes a mere 27 minutes for kids to get bored on long road trips. I don’t know about you, but that one little question  — are we there yet – grates on my nerves, especially when I have heard it 30 times in about a 15 minute period. By using a GPS system like TOMTOM, you can assure that your road trip will take less time because you will have the best possible maps routed, and you can be alerted to roadblocks, traffic jams, and more.

“While we can’t stop children from getting bored, we can make sure family journeys are the best they can be,” say Corinne Vigreux, managing director of TomTom’s Consumer Business Unit. “From avoiding endless hours spent in traffic jams, to finding the best places to stop en route, TomTom is an ideal travel companion for a family road trip.”


TomTom aims to make family journeys better by reducing the time spend in traffic and by offering driver-friendly content and services to help families make the most of their time together. TomTom HD Traffic helps drivers reach their destination faster, and TomTom’s LIVE services and travel apps, available on the GO LIVE 1535M and GO LIVE 2535M devices, help families find and navigate to recommended places such as restaurants and play areas along the way.

Some of my favorite features:

When we opened the TomTom box, my husband’s eyes gleamed. He is a total sucker for tech gadgets like GPS systems, etc. Needless to say he has been playing with it non-stop since I gave it to him.

His favorite features on the GPS are:

  • Live Traffic Updates
  • Voice activation (this is his favorite feature of all. He simply sets it to voice activate and can speak to it where he wants to go and it tells hims his destination and how long it will take to reach that destination.
  • Map Updates
