TomTom puts its HD Traffic service data in a browser, lets everyone use it for free

We’ve gotten lost and found our way home again courtesy of many a navigation system over the years, but if ever we’re battling not just confusing roadways but also unpredictable traffic patterns it’s TomTom we want on our side. The HD Traffic service the company offers is always spot-on, and now you can access that constantly-updated and really quite detailed data from your web browser.

That means that users will now be able to edit street names, set driving directions and block / unblock streets directly on their maps, and if you’re kind enough, you can share those updates with the rest of the TomTom community. Furthermore, the app will automatically check for new verified updates (including turn restrictions, speed limit changes and crossing changes), so the previously tried-and-true “my maps were old!” excuse will sadly no longer work. Give and take, as they say.
