TomTom: Bigger is Better

By Tony Ibrahim | Tuesday | 26/06/2012

TomTom has launched its biggest GPS yet: its 6 inch Via 620.

The Via 620 ups the screen size and resolution for a bigger, sharper picture, and a finger friendly touch experience.

"We haven't simply stretched the units," began said Chris Kearney, Vice President of TomTom, Asia Pacific. "We've changed proportions and designed the Via 620 with safety top of mind. At TomTom, we're all about helping drivers enjoy the journey and the increased pixels, bigger screen and larger buttons make your journey simpler and stress-free.

"For drivers - particularly those with larger vehicles such as the Aussie Ute or popular SUV - the Via 620 is practical, clear and easy to use so that they'll always be confident on the road," said Kearney.

The Via 620 will come with a lifetime supply of daily map updates which are based on reports from TomTom's 21 million strong Map Share community. It also has a dual mounting system, allowing it to be mounted on dashboard and windscreens.

"We know that the most important thing to Australian drivers using a personal navigation device is that the instructions are clear," says Kearney. "This has been a huge focus for TomTom in the design of all of our new products - from providing Advanced Lane Guidance and spoken street names to now launching the Via 620, which is clearly the next big thing when it comes to GPS devices."

TomTom's Via 620 is available now from leading retailers for RRP$249.99.

New LG 65   New LG 65" Ultra High Definition TV, Complete With Pop Down Speakers: REVIEW
LG Australia has finally rolled out their 65" Ultra High Definition TV offering in Australia and what you get is a TV that delivers a quantum leap in TV technology and surprisingly a significantly improved sound system that is delivered from pop down speakers but the big question is whether it is worth $6,999.
