TomTom GO 940 LIVE spotted in UK - Google Search

TomTom looks like they are about to release the TomTom GO 940 LIVE; an up-versioned model of the TomTom 930 that adds their HD traffic module. A page has just appeared on a retailer's site, offering it for pre-sale. The GO 940 would have all the features of the GO 930, including IQ routes, Lane Assist, and Enhanced Positioning Technology.

The TomTom GO 940 LIVE will also include the "Live" package, that for the UK at least will have a subscription to HD Traffic, Safety database (think speed cameras?), and fuel prices. Oh yea, and Google Search!

Google Search
- Rumored a few days ago, and now (semi-) confirmed it looks like TomTom and Google are in a nice tie up on mobile search. With the HD mobile GSM band connection and the proper work to streamline results, the combination could be pretty powerful.

The TomTom GO 940 LIVE is priced at 399 pounds plus VAT, and will require a subscription after the free three month trial is up for the LIVE connection via the TomTom HD module. Think in the price range of $10 - $15 per month....

Thanks Jim for sending this one in.
