TomTom Go 2405, 2505 bring major new UI, instant rerouting

TomTom Go 2405 and 2505 get non-stop rerouting

TomTom today unveiled a significant overhaul of its GPS navigators for the US through the 4.3-inch Go 2405 TM and the five-inch Go 2505 TM. Both have TomTom's newer user interface, which at once speeds up getting to core info and supports multi-touch. A capacitive glass touchscreen lets users pinch to zoom and swipe between screens.

Routing has also been greatly improved through on-the-spot changes to directions, TomTom said. A new code routine constantly monitors traffic and will change the route instantly if congestion affects the road ahead. Lifetime traffic and map updates will always keep the feature relevant.

The designs all have a new magnetic car mount that's much easier to remove as well as Bluetooth calling, voice commands, spoken street names and lane assistance. The two are on sale through Amazon (linked above) and other online retailers today for prices of $300 for the Go 2405 TM and $320 for the Go 2505 TM, although shipments should start only within the next few weeks. Retail shops won't get the designs until mid-2011.
