TomTom Launch the GO940 Live in London
Date: Sunday, November 02 @ 20:58:59 UTC
The latest in the TomTom range of SatNav systems was launched this week: The TomTom GO940 Live. We were at IFA in Berlin when it was announced back in late August, but Wednesday was the day it was launched in the UK.
October 29th a cold day in central London we were met at Liverpool St Station by a driver who claimed his "TomTom had to go back as it was on the blink...". The next thing the driver does is take the wrong turning out of the station... Suspicious activities for the launch of the latest TomTom GO 940 Live.
Well we had a number of presentations from TomTom before we got the chance to go out in the car and put the GO940 Live through its paces.

The day started with a presentation from Ian Pearson a Futurologist. Ian tracks technological evolution and tries to predict what will happen in the future... He has some interesting and controversial views on the 'damage' technology is doing to the environment, and also the trends of our throwaway society with technology having rapid obsolescence.

The next presentation was from the TomTom Managing Director Corinne Vigreux. Corinne gave us a corporate overview and brief introduction to the new technologies and concepts of the TomTom GO 940 Live.

The final presentation before we put the device to the test was from Tom Brown. Tom went into detail of what the TomTom 940 does focusing on the HD Traffic, Routing, Local Search and Speed Cameras. There was also a nice short promo video at the beginning of his presentation.

Our Road Demo video gives a much better idea about the new TomTom GO 940 Live than I can portray in words. You can see the HD Traffic in action along with the Google Live Search.
