The Tom-Tom (or A-Tom-Tom) code is a reinterpretation of the imagined Baudot or Morse code imagined by a certain Hayden as an alternative alphabet for the telegraph.
dCode advises against its use because it is an original work without a reliable source: the only reference to this code is a page on Omniglot.
The encryption with Tom-Tom is based on a subtitution of the letters of the Latin alphabet by slashes (/ slash and \ backslash) according to a predefined correspondence. Here is the Tomtom alphabet:
Example: TOMTOM is crypted \\/\ /\/ \// \\/\ /\/ \//
Tomtom decryption consists in finding the sets of slash/stick characters / and \ corresponding to the letters (which is very difficult if the characters have no separator).
Example: `\/\ \\\/ / \/\ /\\' is decrypted SLASH
If there is no separator, dCode will make various attempts to find the corresponding potential words (only some results will be displayed - non exhaustive list)
Code consists of oblique bars (diagonal) / or \ (slash or backslash)
A riddle could refer to the GPS brand, even if the name has nothing to do with Tom-Tom company.
