TomTom brings free online route planner to Australia

TomTom Route Planner incorporates IQ Routes and Map Share technologies seen in the company's GPS units

TomTom has launched a free online route planner for Australians. The service lets users plan a journey and offers an estimate of how long the trip will take.

The TomTom Route Planner incorporates the IQ Routes and Map Share technologies previously employed in the company's GPS units. IQ Routes uses real-life user data to judge a route's efficiency (instead of using a maximum possible speed method). Map Share lets users share map corrections.

“The introduction of the online route planner in Australia marks an important step in our strategy to make award-winning navigation available to all users, regardless of the platform that is used,” said TomTom’s Chris Kearney. “Users that do not have a navigation device can now benefit from our high quality route planning before starting their journey, giving them a chance to plan their day better than ever before.”

Pathetic! Unable to find towns,even with the map on screen. Couldn't find any facility for a Via route.
More frustrating than useful.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
