As above it is variously called a Hella or a DIN or a BMW socket. They are all the same thing.
Cigarette lighter sockets are designed for that, lighting cigarettes. Hella sockets are designed to power electrical accessories.

If the TomTom already has a standard cigarette plug you could use one of these

But I would recomend that you change the plug as above.

many use a Hella USB adapter like this one https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/174135618940?hash=item288b4aad7c:g:MlAAAOSwlTheAefe

don't know exactly why it's called "Hella" but Hella is a German producer of car electric stuff so maybe they invented the thing. DIN stands for German Institute for Norms so maybe at some point the way that plug is designed was put into an industrial norm and BMW well that's easy because as far as I know they always had these sockets on their bikes once they started doing it

Life is too short to drink bad wine or to ride bad bikes.
