There are a lot of good reasons that GPS manufacturers have given for sticking with resistive touch-screen technology for their devices, despite the fact that most smartphone manufacturers have made the jump to capacitive. The most common reason is the ability to use the unit in a cold car while wearing gloves. Lately, we’ve been seeing a wave of capacitive-screened portable navigation devices, offering the advantages of multitouch and requiring less pressing force to register an input. The latest is the new European-market TomTom GO Live 1000 series.
The 4.3-inch TomTom GO Live 1000 brings with it a new interface dubbed “Fluid Touch” that should take advantage of the capacitive screen to make the maps and menus easier to navigate. Under the skin, basing the 1000′s new OS on WebKit allows TomTom to join the app store craze by making it possible to install functionality enhancing applications and easier to develop such apps.
