Posted by at 10:34 am on April 6, 2009

TomTom has released its first connected device, the TomTom GO 740 LIVE. The TomTom GO 740 LIVE provides the industry’s best routing and helps drivers take control of their daily drive via automatic delivery of helpful features including: real-time traffic information, TomTom Fuel Price Service, Local Search powered by Google, TomTom Weather and QuickGPSfix.

Optimal Routing

The TomTom GO 740 LIVE device enables users to always drive the smartest and most efficient routes, whenever or wherever they go. The device comes pre-loaded with TomTom’s exclusive IQ RoutesT Technology, which now incorporates historical speed profile data for both day of week and time of day to calculate the fastest route available based on when the user is actually driving to their destination. IQ Routes Technology is based on anonymous speed profiles gathered over the years by millions of participating TomTom users, and takes into account the real-world factors that influence the speed that drivers can actually expect to travel en route to their destination, such as historical traffic patterns, traffic lights, rotaries, school bus routes, and steeply-sloped roads.

Wireless Real-Time Traffic Feeds

In addition to TomTom’s embedded IQ Routes Technology, the GO 740 LIVE automatically and wirelessly receives real-time traffic speed and incident reports every two to five minutes. Traffic delays can be heard audibly on the device as well as displayed on the screen. The driver can either choose to remain on their current route based on the new estimated time of arrival, or can take advantage of a faster, alternative route suggested by the device based on its knowledge of traffic conditions.

Smart Combination: Fastest Routes and Most Accurate Arrival Times, 24/7

The powerful combination of TomTom’s IQ Routes Technology and real-time traffic feeds uniquely enables the TomTom GO 740 LIVE to provide drivers with the fastest routing and most accurate travel times without the need for Bluetooth connectivity or wires – 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Voice Recognition
The TomTom GO 740 LIVE also features expanded voice recognition. Activated by tapping a single on-screen icon, drivers can plan an entire route, adjust volume, screen brightness, make a phone call with their compatible cell phone, or simply direct the device with over 130 voice commands.

The TomTom GO 740 LIVE is available for purchase in mid-April for $399.95 which includes three months of LIVE Services out of the box. Following the first three months, the connected LIVE services will be $9.95 per month.
