TomTom GO 3D Automotive Navigation GPS System DISCONTINUED
This version of the TomTom GO has been discontinued. It has been replaced by the outstanding new TomTom GO 300 and GO 700. The GO 300 has an updated map set, advanced navigation features and Bluetooth capabilities. The GO 700 adds a faster processor, internal hard drive and hands-free calling capabilities for the ultimate navigation experience.
The TomTom GO is a stand-alone, portable, and easy-to-use car navigation system that incorporates navigation software, maps and a GPS receiver in one device. The TomTom Go comes with everything you need to get around, including an extra 256MB SD memory card (on top of the 32MB of internal memory). For maximum convenience, check out the TomTom GO Plus, which has all the maps for the entire United States pre-loaded. Navigation solutions are now accessible to everyone thanks to TomTom GO.

TomTom GO Features:
- 3D Navigation View
The vivid 3D navigation view allows you to better understand your current position as well view any upcoming actions and points of interest.
TomTom GO provides you with uncluttered maps, easy-to-use controls, and crystal clear on-screen directions as well as verbal instructions.
- Large Icons
TomTom GO includes easy to see and use large touch-screen icons. The large icons mean it is easy to make fast and efficient selections if you need to plan a new route while in your car.
- Points of Interest
In an unfamiliar location, but need to find a petrol station, restaurant, parking facility or shop? Let TomTom GO be your tour guide. Simply click on the icon and TomTom GO will lead the way. Choose from thousands of points of interest in more than 50 categories.
- Night View
TomTom GO has a special low-glare night display setting. This setting provides colour schemes that are significantly easier for the eye to adjust to from the dark conditions of night driving. You can select between different colour styles suitable for night-time driving depending on your personal preferences.
- Route Recalculation
Never be late again with the TomTom GO roadblock feature. This allows instant re-routing around any unexpected obstacles you encounter on your trip. You can avoid traffic congestion, roadwork, accidents or anything that slows you down. And if there is a road you particularly dislike travelling along, you can block that too!
- 2D Map View
TomTom GO features the very latest digital maps of the USA from Tele Atlas and are viewable in a 2D or 3D manner. These maps give you comprehensive coverage of America. However, despite containing more information than ever, they dont take up more memory thanks to the latest memory-saving techniques.
- Simple touch-screen operation
TomTom GO has an intuitive approach to entering addresses. Usually you only need to type a few characters of the city or street name and TomTom GO will pull up the right option from which to choose. You can specify the house number on the street. Or select a nearby street crossing if you dont know the number.
TomTom GO Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Why is the TomTom GO so much cheaper at Tiger GPS than at other websites?
A: We are the leading online retailer for TomTom, so we buy in huge quantities, which allows us to bring you TomTom products at reduced prices.
Q: What is the advantage of upgrading to the GO PLUS model?
A: The GO PLUS is ready-to-go right out of the box because it comes with a 1 GB SD card that has been pre-loaded by TomTom with street-level maps for the entire United States. Many people believe they can just buy the standard GO along with a cheaper third-party 1 GB card and program all the maps themselves. However, this is not the case because there are eight CDs of maps, which would not all fit if loaded separately. The maps that come on the GO PLUS 1 GB card have been specially compressed and optimized by TomTom so it has coverage for the entire USA. Therefore, if you think you will want to travel in an area larger than a single region (6-9 states) and don't want to have to constantly change your maps, then the GO PLUS is the model for you.
Q: How does the TeleAtlas map software and POI database match up with those of Magellan, Garmin and Navman?
A: Though one can't program custom POIs on the device itself (which must be done on the PC), the TeleAtlas map software has over 4 million points-of-interest in its database, placing it a close second to Garmin's, and putting the other manufacturers to shame.
Q: I heard a rumour that TomTom was a European company.
A: TomTom has been the market leader in Europe for automotive GPS navigation for years. In the summer of 2004 the company decided to bring its popular GO line to the US. Due to the high quality of its product, it only took TomTom a few months to became one of leading providers of automotive GPS solutions in the United States!
Q: TomTom is available in many countries - so how many languages are available on the GO?
A: Most likely one of the ones you speak: US English, UK English, French, German, Dutch, Spanish, Italian, Danish, Swedish, Belgian Dutch, and Norwegian. Additional voices and personalities can be downloaded by clicking here.
Q: How durable is the TomTom and can I use it outside of my car?
A: Although it can be used out of the car because it has an internal battery, the TomTom GO is not recommended for rough outdoor uses such as hiking or on the water. See our selection of handheld GPS units instead. If used regularly and reasonably, the internal battery should last about two years before needing to be replaced.
Q: I heard that the TomTom GO has a radically different method for address entry.
A: The TomTom GO has the same auto-complete features found in other devices and programs. The difference is that the TomTom GO allows you to enter your state and city before the street address, so it will narrow the search database and give you faster results.
Q: Do I need to wire a speaker for the TomTom GO?
A: Not at all. The GO features an internal speaker which has been dubbed "surprisingly loud" and distinct. The clear speaking voice is available in different personalities and languages as well.
Q: What is "assisted satellite navigation?"
A: The TomTom GO has a revolutionary method that allows the GO to continue to navigate, even in a tunnel or other hard-to-track location. While it isn't advisable to drive across four states with ASN, it's an invaluable tool to help keep you on track should you temporarily lose reception.
