New TomTom navigators get voice recognition

GPS maker TomTom has introduced new portable navigation devices, broken up into two ranges. The Go 2435 and the Go 2535 editions both sport a thin design and get the same capacitive touchscreen introduced on the Go 2505TM. A newfound feature common to both lines is the intuitive Voice Recognition that lets users speak destinations while driving.

TomTom says this feature will understand many commands spoken in different ways, such as "drive to an address," "go to an address" or "navigate to an address." How the two families differ is in screen, which on the 2435s is a typical 4.3-inch screen where the 2535 units get a five-inch screen. Both variants have Bluetooth support, but the smaller devices alone are said to get 4GB of built-in memory.

Each will have models with lifetime map updates (designated with an M suffix), lifetime traffic updates (T) and both (TM). Standalones include the 2535TM World Traveler Edition, which gets maps of North America and Europe, and the GO 2535M Live, which gets one year of included Live search service. These services include TomTom's HD Traffic for updates based both on real conditions and on historical trends.

While prices or release dates are not yet known, the new devices are expected to arrive early in March, with official information from TomTom expected at around the same time. [via GPSTracklog]
