TomTom Sells Customers Driving Data To The Police

The company stirred controversy when a Dutch newspaper revealed that the user data being sold to the Dutch police was being used to set speed traps in areas where motorists are likely to drive fast.

Need to attack to issue

Those of you with Tom Tom need to write and ask the uk division the direct question and demand and answer. Otherwise they will get off the hook by just issuing a bland general statement.

Get no data from me.

Assume they have models that gather data for traffic congestion.

Wacca1 I agree - M25 road to hell...


I just emailed them asking in blunt terms if data has been sold. If it has I said I will expect a full reimbursement for my TOMTOM.

I dont care if I don't get a refund just don't like my data being sold.
