TomTom adds more smarts and great touch screen

Techstination feature for Tuesday, November 23, 2010

TomTom adds more smarts and a great touch screen to navigation. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. By now, so many people have built in, add on or phone based navigation systems, what could possibly be new? The folks at TomTom have come up with plenty in the new Go 2505 and 2405 devices. If you, like many others, have been reluctant to trust a navigation device to find the best way to get from here to there, you'll be surprised at just how good the latest technology from TomTom is. Senior VP for market development Tom Murray...

"We've compiled data over the last two or three years that gives us information about how fast cars actually travel on any road across the country any day of week and time of day. And we've built this intelligence into the product."

The new TomTom Go devices sell for about three hundred dollars, including lifetime traffic and map updates. You can navigate to us at I'm Fred Fishkin.
