TomTom GO 730 & 930

Navigation mainstay TomTom has announced two new GPS units, the GO 730 and 930. Successors to previous models, one upgrade comes in the form of graphics, which have alpha blending and a more elegant user interface; the software will now also display lanes for upcoming turns, and even sign posts or 3D renderings for potentially confusing intersections.

Each unit has further been enhanced with a technology called "IQ Routes," which takes into account the average speeds of a road at different times, and will thus give a more realistic sense of driving time. This is likewise used to find alternate routes which are nevertheless faster than linear ones.

In both cases the units have Bluetooth, a 4.3-inch widescreen display, and an SD slot for expansion. The GO 730 has 2GB of internal memory and includes maps of Canada and the US, while the 930 doubles storage to 4GB, and additionally features maps of central and western Europe. Both units should be released by the end of April. [Image courtesy of Crave]
