TomTom unveils 'super' satnav

Capacitive touchscreens at last

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

TomTom has launched what it claims are the first of the "super satnavs".

The Go Live 1000 and 1005 both sport capacitive touchscreens allowing drivers to pinch-to-zoom in and out of maps, and scroll through lists with finger swipes. The 1005 has a 5in screen, the 1000 a 4.3in job.

TomTom didn't detail the satnavs' other specs, but it did claim they offer speedier router calculation that its other PNDs thanks to a processor upgrade. They also have a new car mount that hold the satnav in place magnetically.

The new models have the usual map and POI updates, and access to TomTom's Live services and real-world data-based IQ Routes journey planning.

The 1000 and 1005 also come with a year's free access to HD Traffic real-time traffic info.

The 1000 will be available this month for £250 with UK and Ireland maps, or £280 for full European coverage. The 1005 follows in October priced at £300 with Europe-wide mapping. ®
