TomTom Via 130 is featuring new Speak & Go Function

TomTom has today released the TomTom Via 130, featuring a new Speak & Go function. Drivers can control the device with just their voice, as well as making hands-free calls, which helps them keep their hands on the wheel and their focus on the road.

Speak & Go recognizes over 1,000 commands and their synonyms, so drivers can talk naturally and input addresses with ease. Plus, the TomTom Via 130 takes safe and simple driving one step further, with hands-free calling via Bluetooth enabling drivers to make and answer calls safely in the car.

“The new Speak & Go feature helps increase focus and concentration by allowing users to keep their hands on the wheel,” says Corinne Vigreux, Managing Director of TomTom. “Just say an address, a Point of Interest or simply ‘take me home’, and TomTom plans your route straight away. Interacting with your navigation device has never been easier; it slots perfectly into your everyday drive.”

The Via 130 is pioneering TomTom’s lifetime free daily map changes. Updates are based on reports from TomTom’s Map Share community of 21 million, and help drivers to deal with frequent road changes such as new speed limits and blocked roads. A Map Share service has previously been available to certain customers using maps which are less than 12 months old, but it will now be offered to cover the lifetime of a device.

Also launched today was the TomTom Via 135, which has all of the same features and functionalities as the Via 130, but a larger screen size. The TomTom Via 130 has a 4.3” screen, and the TomTom Via 135 has a 5” screen.
