TomTom GPS : GO LIVE 1000 in North America as GO 2405, 2505 - No LIVE !

Updated November 2nd, 2010
When the GO LIVE 1000 was first shown in Amsterdam at the end of April and then formally launched with the GO 1005 (5" screen) at the end of September in Europe, the question was "when will it make it to North America ?"...the wait is over as they were announced yesterday as the GO 2405 and GO 2505...except that the is no LIVE connected feature (HD Traffic, Google Local, Weather, etc...) !

At this point it's anyone's guess why this feature is missing, but one has to assume that TomTom were not able to strike a deal with a US carrier to use their network and also collect data for their HD Traffic service. This is likely going to make it difficult for the new systems on the market, especially since the new platform they use is "closed", at least for now, with the removal of the popular POI import feature. You can use the [TOPIC] TomTom GO 2405, 2505 (USA) with MyTomTom in the GOtomtom.com forums to discuss.

Updated September 27th, 2010 - The TomTom GO LIVE 1000 and GO LIVE 1005 are now available in Europe for €299 and €349 respectively. No release date has been made available for North America at this time. The "closed" nature of the new platform is confirmed : no direct USB connection to the internal memory, instead it will happen via an online application called MyTomTom, and as a result it is no longer possible to add your own POIs, a major letdown from a company that highlighted this aspect when they launched the first GO in 2004. In what looks like "damage control", TomTom issued a...

... statement reassuring they would be back "in the future"...the same reassurance we got in Amsterdam 5 months ago. We shall see...in the meantime you can use the [TOPIC] TomTom GO LIVE 1000 - Available, no POIs topic to discuss.

Updated April 27th, 2010 - TomTom held a special event today in Amsterdam for the launch of their new flagship device, the GO LIVE 1000 with Navcore v10. The GO LIVE 1000 breaks new ground at the hardware level : bright, capacitive and multi-touch screen, magnetic car holder, ARM11 Broadcom Platform (40% faster than previous GO generation) and at the... software level : new user interface, contextual menus, instant route calculations. As the "LIVE" designation indicates, it's a "connected" GPS with a built-in GPRS module and a SIM card and it comes with a pre-paid 12 month subscription. You can use the [NEWS] TomTom launch GO LIVE 1000 with v10 topic of the "GPS and Mobile News" forums to discuss.

Updated October 1st, 2009 - Since the GO x50 LIVE series were announced at the IFA show in early September, Tomtom have indicated that they do not currently plan to make them available in the US. This will likely happen later as this was the scenario for the GO x40 and now the XL LIVE. As with the other ONE models, it gets a number to become the XL 340S LIVE in North America. Let's hope for TomTom that it gets more traction in the US than in Europe where people have been reluctant to buy an AIO that requires a costly monthly subscription of €10 with...... little, if any, perceived value over a "non-connected" AIO equipped with an RDS Traffic receiver. You can use the TomTom XL 340S LIVE - Connected GPS topic of the "TomTom AIO Forums - www.GOTomTom.com" to discuss.

Posted September 7th, 2009 - After the TomTom GO in 2004, the GO x00s (300/500/700) in 2005, the GO x10s (510/710/910) in 2006, the GO x20s (520/720/920) in 2007, the GO x30s (530/730/930) in 2008, and the GO x40s (540/740/940) in late 2008, here comes the seventh generation of TomTom GO systems, the x50s LIVE with the 550, 750 and 950 models. Not unlike the move from the GO x20 with Navcore 7 to the GO x30 with Navcore 8 in ealy 2008, the hardware is unchanged, but TomTom have revamped the interface, both the menus (now "animated"), the navigation information fields and the map display. This results in quite a "freshening" Navcore 9 software especially since...

... route calculation speeds have been significantly increased (up to 3x). I have a GO 950 handy, so you can use the New TomTom GO x50 & x50 Live Series GPS topic of the" GPS and Mobile News" forums with any questions.
