TomTom launches GO x40 LIVE in Europe


The three models – TomTom GO 940 LIVE, TomTom GO 740 LIVE and TomTom GO 540 LIVE – come with a new and extended version of TomTom's IQ RoutesTM technology, now based on historical travel time information for every road, specified for every day of the week, at five minute intervals.

The TomTom GO x40 LIVE series has built-in plug & play connectivity, and comes with:

  • TomTom High Definition TrafficTM service for the most accurate and current traffic information en route, now available for the first time in the UK, Germany, France, Switzerland, as well as in the Netherlands.
  • TomTom Safety Alerts including real-time safety camera reporting and sharing, meaning users can keep each other informed about mobile safety cameras. Safety alerts in the UK will be supplied by Road Angel.
  • TomTom Fuel Prices: up-to-date fuel price information guides users to the cheapest fuel stations along their routes or in their area.
  • TomTom unlocks the power of online Local Search with Google. It turns search results into a destination with the press of a button. This gives users access to millions of locations.

According to CEO Harold Goddijn, the introduction of the TomTom LIVE services evolves TomTom from a pure PND manufacturer to a provider of state-of-the-art routing information.

The TomTom GO LIVE series features voice command and control in addition to existing safety options, enabling users to plan a route or make a phone call using their voice. In fact, more than 100 tasks can be activated by voice.
