In 1991, TomTom was founded and began a journey that would change the way people drive forever. From the start, TomTom focused on making technology accessible for everyone, beginning with software development for business-to-business mobile applications and personal digital assistants (PDAs) for consumers. In just two years, TomTom became the market leader in PDA software with navigation applications such as EnRoute (later renamed RoutePlanner) and Citymaps.
After continued years of success, in 2013, TomTom launched its own branded GPS Sport Watches to help runners, cyclists and swimmers keep moving towards their fitness goals, by providing essential performance information at-a-glance.
Today, TomTom has grown from a Dutch based start-up company into a multi-national, global brand. The original founders remain committed to the business and together with the 4,000 employees are focused on the helping people achieve their goals.
