TomTom has introduced its latest navigation device, the Go Live 1535M.

The device provides a standard set of navigation features, with maps for the US, Canada and Mexico presented on a five-inch touchscreen. Other capabilities include voice recognition, Bluetooth connectivity, spoken street names, and lane guidance.

The 1535M is expected to be available sometime in October with prices starting at $249. The Live services will be available free for 12 months, with various subscription options available after the trial period.
