TomTom Go sat navs gain WiFi and additional features
TomTom’s latest GO sat nav range offers connection to WiFi, meaning all updates are automatic, as well as access to Lifetime Maps, Lifetime TomTom Traffic and Lifetime Speed Camera alerts.
Available from September, the new TomTom GO satnavs are compatible with personal assistants like Apple’s Siri, Google Now, or Microsoft’s Cortana, allowing the user to search using voice, have the TomTom GO read out messages when they arrive or make and take calls via voice control.
TomTom GO satnavs can also learn a driver’s habits by analysing trip information. This allows the satnav to predict final destinations when a familiar route is taken; to the office, for example, and communicate traffic alerts accordingly.
Commenting on the launch of the new range, Corinne Vigreux, co-founder and managing director, TomTom Consumer, said: “The new TomTom GO satnavs represent our focus on making technology so easy to use that anybody can benefit from it. WiFi updates, smartphone integration, predicting your destination – even Lifetime services. Each element works towards removing the headaches associated with driving, and allows people everywhere to relax and enjoy the journey ahead.”
TomTom GO comes in four versions. The top end TomTom GO 5200 and 6200, as the titles suggest, come in 5-inch and 6-inch variants respectively and both feature SIMs for live updates. The TomTom GO 520 and 620, also in those two screen sizes, require a smartphone connection for live alerts on traffic and speed camera detection.
Prices start at £209.99 for the GO 520 (with worldwide maps). The top of the range GO 6200 is priced £339.99.
