TomTom’s EASE Makes GPS Social
TomTom debuted their latest car navigation solution at CES this week: the TomTom EASE. Slated to hit shelves early this year, the EASE aims to be as simple and compact as possible while delivering the latest GPS technology at a low price.
The navigator’s 3.5-inch, 320 x 240 LCD touchscreen highlights the two-icon EasyMenu UI that provides quick access to the unit’s search tools. Drivers will also have quick access to safety and roadside assistance via the Help Me! Menu. Plus, TomTom’s IQ Routes technology will help users plan the fastest route to their destination at any time of the day. The EASE’s maps are provided by TeleAtlas and includes over 3 million points of interest.
Roads and routes can change fast and you’ll want the most up-to-date information both when planning a long trip or figuring out the best way to get home from the office. EASE owners will also have access to TomTom Map Share, a technology that allows users to make their own map changes and access the corrections made by other TomTom users. Owners will have the option of updating their devices with this information in-between the 30 day official map updates.
Pricing hasn’t been officially announced, but expect the EASE to cost around $120 or less.
