TomTom need no introduction from us. During CES 2009 they officially launched the TomTom Go 740 Live for the North American market. Unlike Europe where the range included 3 models only a single version has been launched here. Also unlike Europe the live services do not include either Safety Camera warnings or HD Traffic.

The TomTom GO 740 Live does include all the other services including normal traffic, weather, fuel, buddies and my favourite Google local search. Since I have been using my 940 I have not bothered to use POIs, I just use the Google search to find my destination. It has far more information, and is more dynamic than the built in POIs. The unit comes with a built in SIM card and will be available in Q2 this year for $499 with a full year's service "out of the box". Kaitlin from TomTom shows us the new device and gives us a demo of the new live features on the TomTom GO 740 Live.

Out of interest does the US Spec 740 have the mp3 player software on it unlike the European one - Mike
