The rugged, industrial design, 7-inch screen, unique interface, and powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, tailor-made for drivers, includes lifetime TomTom Maps and TomTom Traffic updates.
TomTom BRIDGE puts your fleet ahead of the pack, equipped with best-in-class navigation, a fully customizable interface, wireless connectivity on the road, real-time customer alert capabilities, accurate routing for drivers and a world-class rugged design. It offers innovative features such as Near-Field Communications (NFC), camera (5MP), WiFi and a 3G modem.
“The TomTom BRIDGE platform, for developers, enables businesses to easily integrate their own business applications or easily create their own branded services that seamlessly connect to TomTom technology, creating a more comprehensive solution, wherever your business takes you,” says Etienne Louw, Managing Director at TomTom South Africa. “The TomTom BRIDGE is designed for businesses on the move, keeping in mind the unique requirements and demands that day-to-day operations present, providing a solution through the use of one of the world’s most reliable and robust fleet management platforms, saving lives, time and money.”
For the official launch event, the TomTom BRIDGE will be bundled with the SunStream PLUS, a breakthrough mobile electricity solution developed for smartphones and tablets by World Panel. The SunStream PLUS represents the newest in a line of rugged, highly efficient mobile electricity devices developed by World Panel, which introduced its SunStream device for feature phones in 2015.
“The TomTom/World Panel bundle will enable users to stream energy from the sun directly into their BRIDGE device, allowing them to get the most out of the technology, especially during long days on the road when energy is not available,” said Hennie Botha, World Panel’s Managing Director for South Africa.
