    Hi @Bambi79

    Welcome to the community! Having a reliable source of information for emission zones and integrating them into our maps or over-the-air services looks like a complex process. I will log this as a request to be passed on to the concerned team.

    Usually, Low Emission Zones are in the city center so if it can be of any help, I would suggest avoiding the city centers.

    Best, lampard

    As a site moderator I would have appreciated it much more if you could have researched before you answered showing that you care. London ULEZ has been extended well outside of the city centre, thats why you have posts from others on here from back in August and September raising it trying to get someones attention on here to fix it. Telling me to avoid the city centre is not as about supportive as a punch in the face.

    I also have the issue and a week later inspite of updating it is still taking me through a chargeable zone, its appalling, I spent £450 on my device, the expansion of the ulez has been on the cards for years now.

    Cities do have API's or maps of the ULEZ,

    I think TomTom needs to work with the tfl to implement up to date maps of these zones and that will take time. As there are only pictured maps right now

    @VikramK Hi VikramK, could you kindly raise this feature request to the team as this is very important for UK drivers.

    Thanks

    I don't really think it is a TomTom issue, it is a building up a relationship with the TFL to implement up to date maps and get everything working.

    They could be working on something right now in the behind the scenes.

    Thanks

    The app took me through the Blackwall Tunnel today - turns out that's in the ULEZ and I didn't have a clue till someone told me -

    I'd love this to be added to the 'tolls' - The app does adjust for the congestion charge so in theory it shouldn't take too much to adapt that for ULEZ especially as the ULEZ charge applies 24/7 unlike Congestion Charge.
    Or does it need a separate option because newer cars aren't charged.

    @kedi7uk I don't think the app supports ULEZ yet, please keep up to date with EULZ through your public authority for now.

    Yes, it should be considered as a toll though they have to implement this into the maps and what I can tell it is just pictures with the roads. So, it would have been manual work to get this fixed. hope it is soon.

    Last weekend I almost got caught by the Birmingham Low Emissions Zone (more accurately should be called the "more emissions but in another part of town zone").

    I was happily following my new Tomtom eco-route from the M42 towards Worcester (skirting Birmingham) until I noticed that it was taking me straight into the Birmingham money-spinner!

    I managed to detour around the centre, but felt that the TomTom should have warned me about these toll-roads (as that is clearly what they are). It simply is NOT eco when emission charges are added onto the route costs.

    I checked on my CoPilot app which I have on my phone (but don't normally use as I don't have a data-contract) and this clearly showed the Low Emission Zones and provides an "avoid" option at routing level.

    Surely TomTom should be able to provide this feature which their competitors have been giving as standard for ages?

    Hi @Lampard,

    Is TomTom working on the LEZ feature (where you e.g. can configure what vehicle type, fuel, and norm you are driving with to avoid LEZ zones where you are not allowed in)?

    When is it planned for this feature to become available?

    Lots of people are waiting on this... and WILL look at different options outside of TomTom if there is no clear communication on this...

    Hi, believe TomTom is working on it as according to my request a few months ago has the comment it is already ELZ on this road, maybe just need to implement how it will work on the app next. :)
