The new TomTom models feature lifetime world maps and lifetime speed cameras

TomTom has expanded its range of TomTom GO navigation devices with the introduction of the 5inch TomTom GO 51 and the 6inch TomTom GO 61. Priced at £139 and £159 respectively, the new sat navs boast Lifetime World Maps and Lifetime Speed Cameras.

Lifetime World Maps allows people to drive with maps from around the world at no extra cost, for the lifetime of their TomTom GO device. Lifetime Speed Cameras lets drivers know the locations of all speed cameras – both fixed and mobile – also for the lifetime of the device.

TomTom GO devices combine real-time traffic information with routing technology, to alert drivers of faster routes as soon as they become available. TomTom Traffic (available via a smartphone connection) covers all mapped roads and combines data from millions of data sources, from all over the world, to deliver traffic information which can pinpoint the start and end of a traffic jam, down to 10 metres.

Says Corinne Vigreux, co-founder and Managing Director, TomTom Consumer: “At TomTom, we want to take the headache out of driving, and make every journey easier. That’s why we decided to expand our award-winning range of TomTom GO devices, and to offer Lifetime services across all products. Drivers don’t need to worry about subscribing to our services, or paying for the latest maps. Our aim is to help you avoid the jams, getting you to your destination faster, wherever in the world you might be.”

The TomTom GO range now features six devices. The new GO 51 and 61; the TomTom GO 510 and 610, featuring a fully interactive screen to pinch, zoom and swipe, as well as a Click&Go mount; and the TomTom GO 5100 and 6100 which also have SIM and Data included to avoid roaming charges. All TomTom GO devices include ‘Drive Home’ and ‘Drive to Work’ buttons in the main menu, for faster, simpler navigation.

TomTom GO navigation devices are also compatible with TomTom MyDrive. Drivers can use their smartphone, tablet or PC to review real-time traffic information, plan routes, and send destinations to their TomTom GO, before they get in the car. Previously launched TomTom GO devices are also compatible with MyDrive through a simple software update.
