TomTom Go Live 1000 Announced

TomTom [TOM2] today announced a new satnav device called the TomTom Go Live 1000. The device is capable of bringing real-time services to users which we will go in to more detail shortly.

The TomTom Go Live 1000 uses an ARM 11 500Mhz processor and uses a new Webkit-based user interface along with a capacitive touchscreen.

The new Go Live 1000 product allows integration of third party applications. The system comes with TomTom HD Traffic (a 1 year free subscription) along with a mobile speed camera database and local search across 16 countries.

To get a more accurate HD traffic, the engineers at TomTom have created a new routing algorithm that scans road networks and the data available to find a faster route. An enhanced user interface also provides more in depth views of traffic conditions.

“Our customers are relying increasingly on their navigation devices and it is no longer about the destination alone, but also very much about the journey itself”, said Corinne Vigreux, managing director TomTom. “The GO LIVE 1000 has been designed to make the journey a relaxed, predictable, safe and enjoyable experience. Thanks to our technologies we know the road ahead and what is happening on the journey. The GO LIVE 1000 will get our customers to their destination easier, safer and faster than ever before.”

The new TomTom Go Live 1000 is being made available in the summer.
