Sony's just busted out two new car stereos that feature built-in TomTom satellite navigation.

The Xplod XNV-L77BT and XNV-L66BT in-dash head units feature 7-inch and 6.1-inch displays respectively and take advantage of a wealth of TomTom Live services you don't get with bog-standard sat-navs.

Those with a head for speed should find the HD Traffic and Safety Alerts features particularly useful, as they help drivers avoid traffic jams and provide advanced warnings about speed cameras and accident black spots.

Both devices also include TomTom's Local Search with Google--a service that lets users find and interact with local points of interest. While driving you could, for example, search for a nearby restaurant, make a call to said restaurant via your Bluetooth-connected mobile phone, and book a table--all via the touch-screen display.
