TomTom Embrace Social Media With Go LIVE 1005 WORLD

TomTom use social media in their newly launched the GO LIVE 1005 WORLD. Now drivers can use social media on the go, safely.

Embracing the  ever changing world of technology, TomTom are combining  driving tools with social media to met the changing needs of today’s motorists.


The newest addition to this range, the GO LIVE 1005 WORLD, is designed to integrate social media with satellite navigation, giving drivers a more interactive experience.

The device will have Twitter functionality enabled, allowing people to safely convey their estimated time of arrival via the popular social platform. This will mark the first time that online travel services and Twitter have been deliberately and specifically partnered within a portable device.

Twitter Features

Alongside the ability to tweet their estimated time of arrival, the TomTom GO LIVE 1005 WORLD will also allow users to tweet their destinations to followers. The messages are pre-set by the driver before departure and automatically sent from the device. This means that drivers are able to update their online activity without being distracted from driving.

This move follows reports than an increasing number of people use their mobile phones to access Facebook whilst driving, demonstrating how social media has become an integral part of our lives and daily habits.

GO LIVE Services

In addition to the added social media functionality, the TomTom GO LIVE series has also been subject to a number of other improvements. The new Search and Go LIVE services include Expedia and TripAdvisor and give drivers access to online reviews and alternative driving routes, similar to the TomTom GO LIVE 1000

Alongside this, the Expedia feature enables drivers to compare prices for accommodation situated along their journey, helping to keep them fully informed at all times. The TripAdvisor function then provide independent reviews on a range of services such as hotels, restaurants, spas and entertainment venues – all areas of interest which can be highlighted on a TomTom Satellite Navigation system.
