TomTom For 2008
Q: What new models of TomTom are there this spring of 2008?
A: At current count, TomTom has released 6 new models: four ONEs and two GOs.
Q: What’s new in the TomTom ONE line?
A: The TomTom ONE series represents full navigation function at a small price. The ONE 130 is the budget model, with a 3.5″ diagonal touch-screen, pre-loaded maps of the United States and Canada, and basic voice instructions. Upgrade to the ONE 130 S for text-to-speech voice instructions as well. The ONE XL 330 and XL 330 S are similar to the 130 series, but have wider 4.3″ diagonal screens.
Q: Really, what does the “S” actually stand for?
A: The “S” in models ONE 130 S and ONE XL 330 S stands for “speaks street names,” or “text-to-speech.” A model without text-to-speech will simply say “In 300 feet, turn right,” but a text-to-speech-enabled model will say “In 300 feet, turn righton Broadway.” Thus in announcing street names, there is less chance of confusion as to where to go, especially if there’s a fork in the road or two turns next to each other.
Q: How about the new GO models, whats new there? And where the heck are the “T” models?
A: The new GO series consists of the GO 730 and GO 930. The GO 730 and GO 930 can receive traffic updates through a Bluetooth phone with internet service on theTomTom PLUSplan. Or, you can add an RDS-TMC FM traffic receiver as an accessory, which will cost more for the hardware up front but will be cheaper the long run, as TMC traffic service will cost you only about $5/month. TomTom states there will not be a “930T” or “730T” model in this years series.
Q: Well then, what is the bottom line difference between the GO 730 and GO 930?
A: See, both are top-of-the-line units that feature TomTom’s latest software upgrades. But, the GO 930 has two minor advantages over the GO 730: built-in maps of Europe in addition to maps of the US & Canada, and Enhanced Positioning Technology that helps keep you on track in tunnels, where there is no signal or city valleys.
Q: Ok then, what do I get with a GO series model that I won’t find with a top-end ONE series model?
A: The GO 730/930 models feature voice address input (So you can actually speak instructions to the GPS!), as well as Bluetooth for hands-free calling, an FM transmitter to get your directions through your car stereo, easy iPod connectivity, integrated traffic receiver, new IQ Routes and Advanced Lane Guidance technologies which provide smarter routes and a real-picture style display of difficult junctions. The ONE series ONLY provides basic navigation information without these enhancements.
