The TomTom Go x40 Live range consisting of the Go 540, 740 and the flagship 940 - first seen at IFA in August - has been officially launched in the UK.

All three models have a 4.3in, 480 x 272 pixel display, but while the 540 and 740 only have 1GB and 2GB, respectively, of on-board storage, the 940 has a meatier 4GB memory.

All three models rely on the firm’s IQ Routes technology, which is in essence a database of historical travel information recorded for every major road on every day of the week at five-minute intervals.
