Are you sick and tired of your current GPS model? Is it too bland and boring for you? TomTom would like you to know that you don't have to drive another day looking at something that doesn't make you smile. The company has partnered with Cafepress, a company that specializes on helping companies sell all sorts of branded/colored merchandise, in order to let buyers of select TomTom navigation models coat them in all sorts of designs.

My Custom TomTom GPS will be free for customers that buy certain models (those aren't being disclosed yet), and individuals can customize their unit with hundreds of professional designs, custom artwork and personal photos. Whatever they choose, it'll be printed directly onto their new GPS device.

Additionally, these devices can be paired with TomTom’s content-sharing platform, TomTom HOME, to combine the custom printed devices with personal start up images, funny voices, unique points-of-interest sets, and more. Is the GPS finally getting personal? It certainly seems like it!

No thank you. Please concentrate on providing free maps for us instead.

The costs associated with staying current with these things is a total rip-off.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

Well realneil, its 30 bucks for 4 maps a year. I don't think its too overpriced seeing how you don't need to pay a monthly fee. they have to make their money somehow. Just selling devices for a one time free won't get them much.

you don't have to get new maps. Its like back in the old days did you go out every year and but a new map (the hard copy ones)? and the fact that they give you most of N. America for $30 is a good deal considering.
