The service will be available in the newly launched Go Live

1005 World satnav which features online travel services as well as the ability

to tweet safely.

New Search & Go Live Services, including access to Expedia and

TripAdivsor, will give drivers access to online reviews of hotels, restaurants,

spas and theatres as well as being able to compare prices for, say, hotels

along your route.

The new SatNav from TomTom will come with a 5in screen and

If you want to use Twitter while you’re driving, you’ll need

to pre-set your message prior to beginning your journey. The estimated time of

arrival will be updated in the message before arrival to give more accuracy.

“Each of the new Search & Go Live Services has been

created to work seamlessly with TomTom’s map and routing technology.  This means that once drivers have read

reviews and selected where they want to go, they are automatically offered the

best route to get there,” a statement from TomTom said.
