TomTom Australia today announced the launch of its refreshed GO range — the TomTom GO 730 and TomTom GO 930.

New features include IQ Routes technology, advanced lane guidance and voice address input.

“The new TomTom GO range is suitable for drivers who are looking to purchase a navigation device that not only gets them from A to B easily, but also makes their journey more efficient, safe and comfortable”, said TomTom's Chris Kearney. “With the introduction of IQ Routes technology and Advanced Lane Guidance, we continue to focus our efforts on features and content that improves the overall navigation experience.”

TomTom’s IQ Routes technology calculates a route based on real average speeds measured on roads, rather than static maximum speeds per road type. The company claims that the IQ Routes technology results in a different and faster route, saving time, money and fuel.

Advanced lane guidance provides drivers with a more realistic view of their surroundings and attempts to provide a realistic representation of highway junctions on the screen. These include clear arrows indicating the lane direction, instructions to take the correct lane and static images of road signs.

Finally, voice address input allows users to drive to a destination by voice control; users of the new GO units can say out the city and street name aloud and have the GPS unit automatically route to it.

In addition to the new features, the new GO 730 and GO 930 models build on previous units by offering access to TomTom’s MapShare function, allowing users to make adjustments to their maps and then share then with other TomTom users.

The TomTom GO 730 will retail for $549, while the GO 930 will sell for $849. In addition, both these models will be available with a traffic receiver in the box, making them ready for use with the SUNA Traffic Channel. The GO 730 Traffic will be available for $649 and the GO 930 Traffic for $949.

The new models will be available in stores in November 2008.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
