The four commitments outlined in the Manifesto are:
1. TomTom will encourage and inspire people to play a role in reducing traffic congestion.
2. TomTom will increase the availability of TomTom HD Traffic.
3. TomTom will lead the continuous improvement of traffic and route guidance technology.
4. TomTom will bring together key traffic stakeholders to share ideas and drive actions forward.
