TomTom's Live Services now include Twitter, but not in the conventional sense. The TomTom GO LIVE 1535M GPS automatically tweets users' destinations, scheduled arrival times and actual arrivals. Although users can't read tweets on the GPS unit, their Twitter followers can keep tabs on their whereabouts.
Tim Roper, president of TomTom, Inc. explained in a press release, "By giving people the most up-to-date traffic details as well as relevant local content provided by travel apps, TomTom is bringing a new level of connectivity to drivers by providing information in the most effective platform available. We are excited to expand TomTom HD Traffic services onto our new range of connected devices at a more affordable price, as it can dramatically reduce time spent in traffic for our customers."
This auto-tweeting may not be an immediate favorite of the general public, but for those tied into social media this is just one more way to stay connected. Along with Twitter, the TomTom GO LIVE 1535M includes a huge 5" touch screen, lifetime map updates, voice recognition, and access to popular travel apps (Yelp, TripAdvisor and Expedia).
