TomTom Announces World’s First Navigation Device With Travel-Specific Apps And TomTom HD Traffic With Real-Time Updates

TomTom today announced the launch of the world’s first portable navigation device with a suite of popular travel apps. The connected TomTom GO LIVE 1535M device will combine the most comprehensive road and traffic information from TomTom HD Traffic, with the insight of travel-related apps. These new features will give people in cars the information they need on a dedicated device designed to offer the best navigation experience.

Using TomTom’s connected LIVE services, drivers can access the information they need while on the road by browsing through helpful travel apps from Yelp®, TripAdvisor®, Expedia® and Twitter. With these apps, users can read restaurant reviews, find hotel availability or automatically tweet their arrival time without ever leaving the car. Additionally, they’ll have access to updated fuel prices, weather forecasts, and Local Search.
