International GPS manufacturer TomTom has developed an intuitive system for city navigation with their new TomTom Go 1000.
Sporting a capacitive screen, a first for the company, this cutting edge unit also offers crisper images and highly detailed mapping. The map data includes full street navigation throughout the US and most of Canada; along with many points of interest such as parking facilities, restaurants, entertainment, fuel stations, and lodging.
Customers will be enthused to hear about the new traffic technology integrated in the Go 1000. Using a TomTom patented algorithm called "IQ Routes", the GPS unit will map out the quickest path to their destination. This navigational info will usually differ from standard map routing, due in part to the use of TomTom user data collected from other TomTom devices.
As the unit tested was only a prototype there will surely be additional features available on the consumer version, which is slated for summer launch. The TomTom Go 1000 is the first of a new series designed to guide travelers to their destinations easily, safely and faster than ever before.
