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.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

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