We'd heard about the TomTom GO 520 before, but now it's looking a little more official -- so all you Europeans looking to get in on TomTom's new Map Share action but not willing to drop the coin on the new GO 720 can cheer up. Apart from trading in the 720's 2GB of flash and all-Europe (or North America) maps for 512MB or 1GB of your local European region, the 520 is basically the same piece of kit -- 4.3-inch WQVGA display, 400MHz CPU, 64MB of RAM, SD card slot, FM transmitter, Bluetooth, optional RDS-TMC traffic information receiver, and the aforementioned Map Share feature, which lets you edit maps and share them with other GO users online. Europeans should see this one drop in the third quarter of this year, for something like €400 ($537).
