TomTom Discontinues Gps Devices

Post by Phillip Coetser »

TomTom, has announced its decision to cease the sales of its GPS navigators in the United States and Canada. The rise of mobile navigation apps, such as Google Maps, Apple Maps, and Waze, offering real-time traffic data and the convenience of updating maps via internet connectivity, has contributed to this strategic move.
Decline in Traditional GPS Demand.
The traditional GPS units have been increasingly overshadowed by the convenience and additional features offered by smartphones, larger screen sizes and the availability of accurate maps on devices people already own has led to a decline in demand for standalone GPS units.
So there lies an uncertain future for sales and support for these navigators in South Africa.
