TomTom HD Traffic will be available in 12 countries throughout Europe (in Germany, the United Kingdom, Italy, France, Belgium, Spain, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Portugal, Denmark, Luxembourg and Austria) starting this summer. The real-time traffic information will automatically be included in the high-end COMAND navigation system as a three year service.

This connected service will use Deutsche Telekom as a communication infrastructure. The system will send traffic information such as tailback reports, current traffic density, traffic holdups or travel warnings to the car and the car will report back its current status (anonymized traffic data) every two minutes to TomTom traffic center.
