Product Test: TomTom GO LIVE 1005

We all like new toys, and today this shiny new TomTom GO LIVE 1005 landed in the 50to70 office. We’re going to be testing it out in the coming weeks and will be reporting back on how it works out. Aside from looking very cool, it boasts lots of nifty features including TomTom’s new live traffic updates (which does include Dublin!). This gives the user live traffic updates every two minutes, not only does this give you a much more accurate arrival time but it also allows you to alter your route to avoid any jams. The crystal clear 13cm / 5″ screen looks great and feels almost as good as an iPhone. It also scores quite high on the nifty scale thanks to the magnetic dock which makes putting in or taking the device out of its cradle a since. We’ll keep you posted on how it works out!
