In the process, the tool promises to cut down on driver distractions. TomTom Bridge links business applications such as Cellcontrol with TomTom maps, traffic and navigation software. The TomTom Bridge device features a seven-inch screen, fully customizable Android interface and Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. It comes with lifetime TomTom Maps and TomTom Traffic.
