Take GPS, add Bluetooth, season to taste — you've got yourself a fine car navigation system that gets friendly with your phone to provide both voice and data connectivity. The TomTom go 700 SatNav unit (which now tops the TomTom go line), unveiled at CeBIT, provides hands-free communication via Bluetooth link to your phone, much as your Bluetooth headset would. The on screen GUI also provides access to your phone's contact list and allows you to place calls directly from the unit. One sweet new feature is the inclusion of a 2.6GB hard drive, which obviates the need to be switching SD cards when you need to change map sets (units will ship with a full set of street level maps of Europe). The unit's processor gets a bump up to 400 Mhz, with RAM at 64MB. One more handy feature: the unit is expected to take advantage of the TomTom plus traffic service via your phone's GPRS connection, providing real time traffic information as well as weather, news, and additional features. Our verdict? We want, but we'll have to wait for pricing details before we whip out the credit cards.
