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
is an update to the impressive Go Live 825 we saw earlier this year.

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.
