Stevenage – Widget UK Ltd, the consumer electronics distributor, today confirms that stock of the new TomTom GO LIVE 1000 is now available in the UK.

The fully connected GO LIVE 1000 range has 12 months of LIVE services free for a year. This includes HD Traffic™ which provides drivers with access to the most accurate traffic information available, to outsmart the jams and always arrive on time and stress free.

The powerful LIVE Services bundle also includes Speed Cameras, providing mobile and fixed speed camera alerts, helping drivers stay safe and avoid fines, while Local Search with Google™ helps pinpoint shops and businesses in the area. And drivers don’t have to worry about the weather spoiling their plans – this smart device range receives up-to-date local and five-day forecasts courtesy of TomTom Weather.

The GO LIVE 1000 is TomTom’s first device range to feature the capacitive Fluid Touch screen which lets drivers pinch to zoom in and out of maps, or scroll through menus with the tips of their fingers. The screen responds intelligently and sensitively to even the lightest touch, making interaction more responsive than in any of its predecessors. And combined with an extra-wide touch screen measuring 13cm (5”), the GO 1005 features the clearest view on the road ahead with even easier operation and functionality.

For a quick start to the journey, TomTom has created the new Easy Click magnetic mount. Docking and undocking is now easier than ever – even with just one hand. In fact, simply holding the device against the mount glides the TomTom GO LIVE simply into place.
Combining cutting-edge features and enhanced usability, the new TomTom GO LIVE 1000 and 1005 devices really signal the arrival of the “super satnav”.

Widget Managing Director Jo-Anne Foreman commented “We were the first distributor to bring TomTom to the UK and we are excited to launch the latest addition to the TomTom range. At the recent TomTom launch event I was particularly impressed by the progress that has been made in the route calculation times.”

Availability and pricing

The GO LIVE 1000 is available now, with the 1005 expected later in October. Pricing is £249.99 (RRP) for the GO LIVE 1000 UK/Republic of Ireland whilst the version with Europe mapping is £279.99. The GO LIVE 1005 Europe is priced £299.99.
