Getting lost in a foreign country isn’t a joke. However, with TomTom’s latest navigation device, the Go Live 1005, that’ll never happen. That’s because it comes preloaded with 66 of TomTom’s most popular world maps, including North America, Australia, New Zealand, South East Asia, Europe and Southern Africa.
On the safety side, it recommends when you should take driving breaks, provides unpaved road warnings, reminds you on which side of the road to drive when abroad and much more. Its advanced lane guidance feature clearly shows which lane to take at junctions. And, on the most difficult highway intersections, it provides realistic 3D representations of the junctions to make sure you find your way.
Changed your mind about the route? Its new alternative route viewer allows you to view different routes to your destination.
Other features include a 13 cm 16:9 ratio capacitive widescreen, hands-free phone calls via Bluetooth and spoken street names.
