GPS maker TomTom originally introduced its Go series GPS systems back at CES in January, but now the units are officially on sale in the United States.
The new Go series is headed off by the new Go 2535 M Live (formerly called the Go 2505 M Live), which integrates TomTom’s Live services—and for the first time in the U.S. that includes TomTom HD Traffic, which covers congestion on all major and secondary roads in the U.S., with updates every two minutes. The Live services are powered by AT&T’s mobile network, and includes capabilities like Google Search, fuel price lookup, and weather forecasts—buyers get a year of Live services with purchase. And, of course, the system still gets people where they want to go, with premium maps of the U.S., Canada, and Mexico that TomTom says cover a million more road more road miles than maps from competitors. The Go 2535 M Live packs Bluetooth for hands-free calling, and carries a suggested price of $349.95.
The new Go 2435 series and Go 2535 series sport 4.3- and 5-inch screens and include new voice recognition that can respond to over 130 voice commands and enable users to speak destination addresses in natural language, saving the hassle of entering addresses element by element. The system announce street names, come with lifetime traffic and map updates, and offer Bluetooth for handsfree calling. Prices run from $279.95 to $319.95
