TomTom launches CD-less double din infotainment system

The TomTom GO I-90 is a double DIN navigation and radio solution, integrating navigation and in-car infotainment for all types of cars.

The all-in-one TomTom GO I-90 solution can be fitted into any car, so even those with older car models can have an integrated navigation experience. It also offers consumers all the advantages of easy-to-use portable navigation, yet fits seamlessly into a vehicle dashboard.

The device provides full radio integration with the car speakers for high quality audio when using spoken instructions, or making hands-free phone calls. Although the full solution is integrated, the navigation device is totally portable so it can be removed from where it sits in the audio system to be used in other cars.

Well-known TomTom features are included for a premium navigation experience. Such as TomTom Map Share — allowing users to make instant changes to the map and share these with others through TomTom HOME and Safety Alerts — enabling drivers to save on speeding tickets and drive safer. Drivers can also easily update their device and their map, which is a unique feature among traditional integrated navigation solutions. The device, which comes with maps of Western Europe pre-installed, also has hands-free calling, so drivers can make calls safely while driving.

The device will be available to buy through ‘12V’ specialist retailers throughout Europe from December 2009. The device will cost €599 (excluding installation cost).

Features include:

• Amplifier (4 x 40 WATT).
• FM reception.
• RDS support for PS, AF, TA.
• AM reception (LW and MW).
• Built in TMC receiver.
• Ready for steering wheel control (3rd party accessory).
• Connectors to car and outside world (GPS, USB, iPod).
• 2 DIN box.
