So you are driving to an unknown destination, you are relying on your GPS to take you there safe and sound. But alas it doesn’t, instead it takes you 30 minutes out of the way just to make a u-turn. However if I had this latest TomTom White Pearl (based on the TomTom ONE IQ Routes™ edition) Special Edition I certainly would be more at ease because it is so pretty – NOT!! It certainly helps to have an attractive looking device and being that this is a female orientated blog we do appreciate the effor – but really? I just had an experience with a TomTom GPS that I would soon rather forget, so I hope that this latest version is not only just pretty on the outside, but that it has some brains on the inside as well.
The device has an EasyPort folding mount, and a lovely white pearl swirl pattern, and also comes with a matching silk drawstring bag. So if you take it out of your car it will resemble a purse rather than a GPS system. Because who would be caught dead these days by just putting any device in anything less than stylish. The TomTom White Pearl also has special points of interest that feature ‘Shop til you drop’ and ‘Places to be seen’ (perfect for Lindsay Lohan), and it will navigate you to all of them in 42 european countries. Another cool feature is the ‘Where Am I?’ function–if your car were to break down, probably a needed feature after you utilize the ‘Shop til you drop’ point of interest. The TomTom White Pearl will be available in June and retail for €199 (US $282.32) no word on if it will be coming to the US.
