Recently, TomTom announced the availability of a new “PRO” series with two new GPS units called the TomTom PRO 4000 and TomTom PRO 8000.
The PRO series and the non-PRO series doesn’t have too many differences other than the fact that the PRO series comes with better software and customer service. Otherwise, it includes a two year warranty, menu lock functionality to stop the driver from using the GPS while driving, a protective case, a free mapping update in the first year of purchase, a dedicated customer service line, and PIN lock to keep data private. Additionally, the main difference between the 4000 and the 8000 is that the 8000 comes with something called IQ Routes, meaning the system chooses the best available route based on driving times and other driving data, Advanced Lane Guidance, Voice Address Input, and Bluetooth connectivity.
No word on when these two GPS units will be available, however, the PRO 4000 will cost $330, and the PRO 8000 will cost $460.
