Introduced in late August 2008 in Europe and shown off at CES 2009 scheduled for American release in the second half of 2009, the Go 740 LIVE is a GPS navigational unit from TomTom. Featuring a 4.3" touchscreen, IQ Routes technology, voice command and control and Hands-free calling - the Go 740 LIVE also includes the most important addition to GPS receivers since their inception - real-time services. The Go 740 LIVE is the first in TomTom's line to include TomTom's LIVE services, a cellphone subscription based service that updates the unit on safety allerts, fuel prices, weather, traffic and other interactive features such as google destination search and 'Buddies' - a cool tool that lets you locate your friends with your GPS navigator. Available in select countries in Europe, North America and South America, the service subscription fees vary.
