For accurate directions, access to useful live services and room for third-party apps, the TomTom GO LIVE 1000 sat nav system is a major player in the satellite navigation market. Building on several previous advances, it now offers some new features or improved existing ones, such as the instantly responsive 4.3” capacitive touch screen. Performance in route calculation and quick movement between customisable menus has also been enhanced.
An impressive new feature, for example, is TomTom’s HD Traffic service which works out where the jams are by tracking the movement of mobile phones in a vicinity and sending warnings to you. This is one of the several TomTom live services whereby you can download up-to-date information about your surroundings via a built-in SIM card and data modem. Another of these live services available is Mobile Speed Cameras, which tells you about the location of safety cameras.
Then there is Local Search with Google, which lets you Google businesses and services on the move and find your way to them, and Weather, which gives you local forecasts. Live QuickGPSFix helps the device lock onto your location more quickly. Best of all, the TomTom GO LIVE 1000 sat nav series includes IQ Routes™, which, among other things, calculates your route based on the actual road speeds measured at different times of the day.
With this package, you know that you always have the most up-to-date maps, thanks to TomTom Map Share™, where you can also make corrections to your own map and benefit from thousands of corrections made by TomTom users everyday. All in all, this system is fast and accurate and keeps your maps up-to-date.
