New TomTom GO 715 GPS for CeBit
Another day another FCC leak of a new TomTom model that will undoubtedly show up at CeBit 2007 as part of a new GPS line up for TomTom. The TomTom GO 715 is based on the fat (non-flat) base for the rest of the GO line, and has bluetooth capability and a SIM card slot which should allow you to call in and out with the unit. The bigger play here in the face of Dash Navigation coming out
with a WiFi and Cellular connected unit is that the TomTom 715 will start to pave the way for the mass market connectedness that we all have been crying for. Downside - another subscription.
In looking at the manual, you can see that the unit with SIM card, will allow for some nice TomTom WORK capabilities. With TomTom WORK, the dispatch can send locations and addresses directly to the GO 715, allowing for nice routing and de-centralized planning. Smart move on TomTom's part; who buys a lot of these things at once? Fleets. The Cable Guy recently came to our house using a GPS, but In talking with him about it, the fuctionality offered by TomTom WORK would be a big help.
One Question: Will we see a GO 515 and GO 915 before the week is out?
