TomTom has today announced it's new products officially to the public. And of course you'll get a full report. There's lots and lots of news to tell you about!
GO 510, 710 and 910
Last week we already presented you with a preview of the next generation of GO's. And now, all the details have been officially presented to the general public. One of the things that wasn't known up to know was the price of the new units. You may remember that we made an educated guess of what the new prices would be. Well, we can tell you that we were spot on: the 510 will sell for € 499,- (£340,-), the 710 for € 599,- (£405,-), and the top of the range model, the 910, will be yours for € 699,- (£475,-).
For an extensive preview of the new hardware, we invite you to take a look at our CeBIT special 'First look at TomTom GO 910!'
New firmware version 6!
The new TomTom GO's have a brand new version of the TomTom firmware which is filled to the brim with new features and improvements. This firmware version 6 will soon become available to all current GO, ONE and RIDER owners as well. If you already want to know about all the new features of this firmware, we urge you to take a look at our software special: 'Firmware 6.0 and HOME: innovations galore'
In that very same special, you'll also read about our first impressions of the brand new computer application TomTom HOME. HOME is a piece of software which will allow you to manage your PND in a very easy fashion. Software, maps, POI's, voices, colour schemes, and itineraries can from now on be easily added or removed. Making a complete backup from your GO's SD card or harddisk is also not a problem. And in combination with a GO 910, HOME allows you to manage your photo's, music (MP3 files) and audiobooks. And then, maybe the best news of all: HOME will be a free add-on, available for all GO, ONE and RIDER owners!
Another novelty which has already been made public last week was the upcoming release of a TomTom RDS/TMC Traffic info receiver. With this accessory, all GO 510, GO 710 and GO 910 users can receive free Traffic information by means of radio signals. TomTom has now also announced the price of this little add-on: € 99,- (£ 69,-)
The last bit of TomTom CeBIT news is about the launch of TomTom WORK, a new product and services offering that offers integrated navigation, tracking, tracing and communication solutions.
