Dutch retailer Royal Capi-Lux partners with TomTom

RBR Staff Writer Published 15 March 2012

The Netherlands-based travel retailer Royal Capi-Lux is set to make portable navigation device manufacturer TomTom's navigation solution Go Live 1005 World available across its outlets from April 2012.

TomTom Search & Go Live 1005 combines the company's satellite navigation services with TomTom Search & Go Live and integrates travel website Expedia, the travel guide and research website, Google Local Search and TomTom Places.

The navigation system offers the ability to post an estimated time of arrival to a desired destination on Twitter, and it is the first device available with maps for the US, Canada, Southern Africa, Southeast Asia and Australia/New Zealand and Europe, including Russia and Turkey.

Royal Capi-Lux CEO Peter Wiggers said travel to almost any place in the world with one device which is connected has never been possible and the demand for it at the company's retail outlets is huge.

"That makes the TomTom Go Live 1005 World, the perfect product for our customers.

"With this product we cater to customers who expect exclusive, trendsetting products in our shops, which ties in with our corporate strategy that is set up to bring specific solutions designed to make frequent travellers' journeys smoother.

"This new portable navigation device fits perfectly with our innovative concept of electronics stores at national and international airports," Wiggers said.

With the use of TomTom HD Traffic, international travelers will also be able to get accurate real time traffic information updated every two minutes, which shows possible road closures or jams ahead.
