TomTom 6

One of my favourite gadgets (yeah, it’s right up there with my TiVo) ever is my TomTom Navigator based SatNav system (actually a PDA and Bluetooth GPS, rather than one of the integrated systems) – and today TomTom have announced a new release of the software – version 6.

This brings with it many new features, some of which look very interesting – including “buddy tracking” where you can have your TomTom talk to your friends systems and see where each other are – highly useful if you’re travelling somewhere to meet up.

Other desireable new features include speed limit warnings and improved displays of directions. I was wondering what they could add to TTN5 to improve it and make me want to upgrade – I think they’ve succeeded – now to wait and find out what the pricing is for the upgrade.
