TomTom is synonymous with GPS navigation systems of the highest quality, so it is no surprise to see the company roll out yet another two models for the masses to help them arrive at their destination safe and sound in the fastest time possible. The latest generation of navigation devices would come in the form of the TomTom GO 2405 TM and GO 2505 TM, where they are touted to deliver a “powerful navigation experience with faster routing, an enhanced software platform, and a new look and feel”. Let us delve into the nitty gritty of both devices in the extended post.
TomTom intends to offer drivers a world-class navigation experience, and this vision has led the company to develop a patented, high-speed algorithm which makes an allowance for instant route planning. Both the GO 2405 TM and GO 2505 TM will utilize this innovative technology, where they will go about conducting continuous routing. The regular monitoring of traffic information will lead these models to recommend the best current route to drivers.
Apart from that, both the GO 2405 TM and GO 2505 TM are the first TomTom devices that come with a new, enhanced user interface. Thanks to a more-intuitive software, users will be able to route to any destination with but a few taps. Not only that, drivers will experience seamless routing with voice recognition navigation commands.
Thanks to a capacitive touch screen technology and a brighter display, you can also navigate through menu screens with just a swipe of the finger and can pinch and zoom for easy map viewing. Using its new click and lock magnetic mount, you can dock either device in a jiffy with but one hand. Among the features found in both models include :-
- Instant and continuous routing
- Crisp, sharp graphics and intuitive user menus
- Pinch-to-zoom and swipe from screen-to-screen using gestures
- Bluetooth hands free calling to maximize safety
- Voice recognition to operate the device with verbal commands
- A click & lock mount to keep the device securely mounted while driving
- Expanded driving view on 4.3” (GO 2405 TM) or 5” (GO 2505 TM) glass touch screens
- Lifetime Traffic & Map Updates
- Announces Street Names
- Advanced Lane Guidance
Both models will be available Stateside from the middle of next year onwards, with prices starting from $299.
