Users will enjoy pre-loaded maps of the entire United States, full door-to-door navigation capabilities, color 3D navigation views, as well as voice-guided routing instructions.
By using TomTom GO’s unique and unparalleled touch screen interface there is no need to wrestle with multiple buttons or extra hardware when calculating routes.
