We got an early look at TomTom's Go Live 1000 navigation unit back in April, and it looks like you'll soon finally be able to get your hands on it as well -- if you're in Europe, that is. The company's just announced that the 4.3-inch GPS will be available this month, and will soon be followed by the Go Live 1005 in October, which adds a larger 5-inch screen. One of the big selling points here is that both screens are of the capacitive variety (complete with TomTom's so-called "Fluid Touch"), and you'll also get a nifty new magnetic windshield mount that lets you easily remove the device when you leave the car. Otherwise, you can expect to get a year of free "HD Traffic" information with each, along with TomTom Weather, IQ Routes, and Local Search with Google, among some other standard fare. Still no word on a release over here, but you can look for the 1000 and 1005 to run £250 and £300, respectively, in the UK (or roughly $385 and $460).
