We're afraid we can't tell you any more about the consumer-facing TomTom Go
7100 and 9100 that surfaced in FCC filings last week
, but if you're interested in Pro
models that sport the same digits for your business fleet, TomTom's being slightly more accommodating. The Pro 7100 looks like it's going to replace the Go 7000 presently used in the company's business-to-business lineup at €329 (about $439), while the Pro 9100 adds an integrated modem and SIM card (letting you ditch the TomTom Link module typically required to monitor your fleet) for €399 ($532). Find both ready to guide trucks across forty-five European countries in the fourth quarter of the year. PR after the break.
