GPS units have pretty much hit the point of “do we really care”. But alas I bend under the pressures of mediocrity and here I am posting on the Go Live 1000 from TomTom. This is their first GPS to offer a capacitive touchscreen, which measure 4.3-inches. It includes a 500mhz ARM11 processor, SIM card slot (for data only), 4GB of storage, 128mb of RAM, a webKit based UI and 12 months of free TomTom Live services. After 12-months expect to pay about €50 ($67) per year, where upon you will continue to be directed to cheap gas, eateries and other hot spots. The HD traffic features is nice – it monitors highways and secondary roads – but considering there are many free options out there (Nokia and Google) is this feature much of a draw any more?
Expect the TomTom Go Live 1000 to hit the EU sometime this summer.
