New TomTom Go includes updated traffic delay info & speed camera warnings

Included within the new features is Lifetime TomTom Traffic, which pinpoints exactly where delays start and end, helping drivers to get to their destinations faster. Drivers can choose to connect to TomTom Traffic via Smartphone Connected tethering with their smartphone.

There’s also a new interactive map that enables drivers to easily access the travel information they need via a high-resolution, capacitive touchscreen. Drivers can simply zoom in and out to find and explore places on the map with their fingertips and tap on the map to get an instant route to a destination.  

Other features include 3D maps and the option to receive speed camera alerts on a three-month trial. As part of TomTom’s global driving community, drivers will benefit from an advanced and highly accurate warning service.

The TomTom GO Smartphone Connected series is designed to receive TomTom Traffic and other services, for example, TomTom Speed Cameras, by connecting to a smartphone via Bluetooth®, using the driver’s existing smartphone data plan.

The device is available in TomTom GO 400, 500 and 600 versions which offer the same features but with a different screen size. Drivers can choose between a 4.3-inch, a 5-inch and a 6-inch. 

The devices will be available in-store and online from this month with prices starting at £159.99 for the GO 400 with maps of 45 European countries. 

The GO 500 is priced £189.99 for UK/Republic of Ireland maps and £199.99 for the EU version.

The GO 600 UK is priced £229.99, whilst the GO 600 EU is £239.99. 

The TomTom GO Always Connected, which offers drivers TomTom Traffic straight out of the box, via in-built SIM card, will be available later in the year.
