Folks, it’s Thursday, December 22nd. And there are just *THREE* more shopping days until Christmas. By the time you read this, there may be only two.
I have a suggestion that may help cross one (or more) people off your list. It’s the TomTom VIA 1435 TM, featuring the voices of Bert & Ernie from Sesame Street!
“The voices of Bert & Ernie are now available for TomTom devices. Developed in association with Sesame Workshop and Locutio Voice Technologies, drivers can join the duo on their adventures, whether they’re off to Sesame Street or anywhere else.
Bert & Ernie’s directions will help to put a smile on every drive. The friends deliver navigation instructions together and enjoy fun banter such as: ‘U-turn ahead, Bert. Just me turn? All of us Bert.’
Bert & Ernie are sure to lighten the mood and inject some fun into any drive.”
LOVE! This is AWESOME on so many levels:
1. TomTom offers several models that are suitable for every lifestyle and price range. Chances are, you know someone who could use a little direction – while driving, of course! It makes the perfect gift for drivers (and disgruntled passengers alike).
2. The Bert & Ernie voice download is just $12.95, so if you know someone who already owns a TomTom car navigation device, snazz it up with these über adorable voices from Sesame Street.
3. Kids LOVE it! I received a TomTom VIA 1435 TM and an opportunity to check out Bert & Ernie’s chatter. You can preview sample sound bites here (warning: you will giggle). And although my little guys haven’t had a chance to enjoy their very familiar banter, I have no doubt we’ll be mapping every address – even familiar ones – when the boys are in the car. They adore Bert & Ernie (especially Ernie! keheeheeheehee!).
As for the TomTom VIA 1435 TM, here are just a few of the highlights:
Refreshed User Interface, New Design & Contemporary Finish
Travel in style! The TomTom VIA boasts a super-slim design, new contemporary brushed-aluminum finish, and a bright, 4.3″ ultra-responsive touchscreen. Additionally, it’s new, intuitive user interface allows for easy route planning and menu browsing.
Extra-slim design with sleek 4.3″ glass touchscreen
Expand your horizons with this sleek, 4.3” glass touchscreen. This wide screen allows for an expanded driving view and optimal operation of the devices’ intuitive menu screens. You can easily swipe your finger to move from screen to screen, or pinch to zoom, for easy map viewing.
Always the smartest, fastest route with IQ Routes
Despite posted speed limits, traffic traveling along a road at 8 a.m. moves at a different pace than it does at 2 p.m. Actual traffic speed is affected by rush hour, traffic light changes, pedestrian traffic, day of the week, and more. Only TomTom offers exclusive technology that evaluates routes based on actual traffic speeds, rather than posted speed limits, and will recommend the fastest route for the time of the day.
Made for Mom
The VIA 1435 TM’s slim design is highly portable and can be slipped into a purse (or diaper bag) with ease. I love the intuitive and easy-to-use interface; even though it had been years since I last used a TomTom, I was still able to map out my route – with changes – on the very first try. This one’s a no-brainer for a special mom in your life, and combined with Bert & Ernie’s voices, it makes the perfect family-friendly option. Put a bow on it!
TomTom is known far and wide as a leader in GPS technology; in fact, since 2004 they have sold over 55 million Portable Navigation Devices! Yes, I’d say they know a thing or two about how to get you from point A to B.
And check out this super cute behind-the-scenes with Bert & Ernie:
Ha ha ha! I can listen to those puppets go back and forth all day long. Of course, Bert & Ernie are just two of the MANY voices you can download on your TomTom – everyone from Snoop Dogg, Mt. T and John Cleese to Marge Simpson, Yoda and more. Let’s just say that this review was grossly delayed due to me sampling all of the fun voices available (gotta say Darth Vadar is one of my faves).
This Christmas, if you’re stuck for a gift for someone special, why not grab the TomTom VIA 1435 TM, equipped with the magic of Sesame Street’s most popular duo? It’s such a practical – yet undeniably charming – gift! And, don’t forget – if you already own a TomTom, be sure to download Bert & Ernie’s voices for your family’s driving pleasure.
