TomTom GO 715 Announced

GPS producer TomTom has revealed the GO 715 at the CeBIT expo in Germany. The new device is the first from the company to integrate its own GPRS modem, complete with a SIM card slot: it can not only receive data through the Internet but send it as well, allowing a vehicle to geo-locate itself relative to others and engage in two-way text chats. Bluetooth is also onboard for hands-free calling.

The 715 will be ready by April for Western Europe; prices are unknown and will generally be reserved for the work market that TomTom says is the primary focus of the new GO model. A US launch is very likely after an FCC filing revealed that the device was already in testing for the country.
