Tomtom has made a big deal of its latest line of sat navs, with new technology such as Iqroutes and Advanced Lane Guidance aimed at improving the effectiveness and clarity of route planning and navigation.
The 930T offers both, packed into a stylish and portable device with a well-designed interface, which makes the massive range of features on offer easy to access on the move.
The bulk of the features are similar to the high-end Go 720, such as the Mapshare technology, personalisation options and community services. There is also a media player, iPod control, text-to-speech instructions for reading out road names and locations, and Bluetooth. Voice address input enables uers to speak the name of a location when plotting a route, while a TMC traffic receiver is supplied along with a speed camera database.
Plotting a route is straightforward and the sensitive GPS receiver found satellites comfortably, even when we were indoors. Once on the road we found the clarity and accuracy of the voice directions to be excellent.
The new Iqroutes feature, which helps to predict a more accurate journey time by basing calculations on speeds on the road rather than sign-posted limits, is also included.
The 930T is an impressive navigator. However, it is also expensive and we were not bowled over with the new features.
