Concord, MA - April 29, 2008 - TomTom, the world’s largest portable navigation solutions provider today announces the availability of its new flagship range: the TomTom GO 930 and TomTom GO 730.
The TomTom GO x30 series comes with a fresh new look and high-quality finish. It features TomTom’s award-winning software, the latest navigation features and content including TomTom IQ Routes™, Advanced Lane Guidance and TomTom Map Share™. Drivers have easy access to detailed traffic information through the RDS-TMC Traffic Receiver, which is included in the box on the 930T and 730T models, and also available for separate purchase as an accessory for other models.
The innovative IQ Routes™ technology is based on actual average speeds measured on roads, rather than posted speed limits. This means that the new TomTom GO range determines a route by considering all possible routes and then selecting the one that takes the least time based on recent historical data. In almost 50% of all journeys, this results in a faster route, and saves significant travel time, fuel, and money.
