TomTom unveiled a new dedicated GPS navigation device today called the Go Live 1535M that incorporates apps and keeps you connected while on the road. It aims to provide the best navigation experience through comprehensive road and traffic information from its TomTom HD Traffic service with real-time updates as well as to provide convenient access to travel-related apps.
TomTom’s Live services include apps like Yelp, TripAdvisor, Expedia, and Twitter. They make it convenient for you to access travel information while on the road, such as finding hotel availability, reading restaurant reviews, and discovering other points of interest. The Twitter integration also lets you automatically tweet your arrival time and location. Additionally, there are apps for checking nearby fuel prices, speed cameras, and weather as well as a Google Local Search app.
The TomTom Go Live 1535M also features voice recognition with one-step address entry, Bluetooth hands-free calling, a 5-inch touchscreen, an integrated mount with flip-screen, advanced lane guidance, and spoken street names. The device is set to launch in October for $249, which includes a free 12-month subscription to Live services.
