TomTom has launched its next-generation TomTom GO satnav range which it says is its most advanced ever, including voice recognition and wi-fi meaning automatic updates, “so no more wires or computers are needed”.
It says the real-time, “super accurate”, traffic information and Lifetime Services are a bonus at no additional cost and that the unit reads out text messages, allows hands-free calling, and are compatible with smartphone personal assistants.
The company also says the latest devices are able to learn a driver’s habits, so are able to predict a destination. This, it says, means for a regular commute everything will happen automatically including avoiding traffic from the outset.
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. Wi-Fi 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.”
The updates, which take advantage of that new Wi-Fi feature, include Lifetime TomTom Traffic, Lifetime Maps and Lifetime Speed Camera alerts.
