The TomTom GO 510, 610, 5100 and 6100 feature a fully interactive screen to pinch, zoom and swipe – as well as a rich user interface, simplified user interaction, 3D Maps3 and a Click & Go mount. Drivers can also choose between a 5" or a 6" screen size.
And, to make the daily commute even easier, the new TomTom GO devices even include ‘Drive Home’ and ‘Drive to Work’ buttons in the main menu, for faster, simpler navigation.
TomTom GO devices combine real-time traffic information with routing technology, to always offer drivers the fastest route available. TomTom Traffic covers all mapped roads and combines data from millions of data sources, from all over the world, to deliver traffic information so accurate that, with each new update, it can pinpoint the start and end of a traffic jam, precisely, down to 10 metres.
Corinne Vigreux, co-founder and Managing Director, TomTom Consumer says: “With the addition of Lifetime World Maps and Lifetime Speed Cameras to our new TomTom GO devices, we’re offering the most comprehensive package to drivers that we’ve ever launched. Our aim is to help you avoid the jams, getting to your destination faster, wherever in the world you might be.”
Lifetime TomTom Traffic is available via a smartphone connection on the TomTom GO 510 and 610. The TomTom GO 5100 and 6100 offer Lifetime TomTom Traffic via a built-in SIM with unlimited data and roaming at no extra cost.
The new TomTom navigation devices are compatible with TomTom MyDrive4. For the first time, drivers can use their smartphone, tablet or PC to review real-time traffic information, plan routes, and send destinations to their TomTom GO, before they get in the car. Previously launched TomTom GO devices5 are also compatible with MyDrive though a simple software update. Find out more about TomTom MyDrive here.
The new TomTom GO devices are now available online and in-store from €199.95.
