TomTom, a provider of location and navigation solutions, has launched its next-generation navigation devices in the United States. Called TomTom GO 2405 and GO 2505, the devices leverage the company’s patented, high-speed algorithm, enabling drivers instant route planning by regularly monitoring traffic information, and recommending the best current route.

The UI is reportedly based on an intuitive software, effectively routing users to any destination in a few taps. Additionally, the devices also support routing with voice recognition navigation commands.

Display: The new devices feature capacitive touch screen technology and a bright display, enabling Drivers to navigate through menu screens with a swipe of the finger or using pinch-to-zoom for more convenient map viewing. The device can be secured with a new click-and-lock magnetic mount that can be docked and un-docked with a single hand.

Features Overview:

  • Instant and continuous routing
  • Improved graphics and intuitive user menus
  • Pinch-to-zoom and swipe from screen-to-screen using gestures
  • Bluetooth hands free calling
