In a recently issued press release, TomTom let the world know that it now has the ability to seamlessly share data between your in-car navigation system and your personal laptop, tablet, smartphone or wearable device.




This new technology is said to be used for enabling a fully connected experience for consumers, allowing developers and third-parties access to this advancement in order to increase the reach of embedded navigation systems.


This may mean that when you park and get out of your car on a busy inner-city street, your smartwatch may seamlessly continue guiding your path until you reach your final destination.
