It would be nice to see the announcement of new software to make our "Old" 520/720/920 units display mapping and guidance like these screen shots. We can only dream I suppose.

IQ Routing will be available to existing users mid April but will require a map upgrade, I'm not sure what the cost will be.


Hoping your right, but what do you base this on, or what makes you state it mate?


Having been involved in the IQ beta, I received an email with these details direct from TomTom.

Hope this helps.


Thank You SpeedCam, you know where I am if you require a beta tester in the south. I have a good track record Police

Having got our hands on a GO 930 and having a chance to ask a few more questions about the new units and features we can now add the following information:

Lane Guidance:
- Mainly covers motorways but is obviously dependent on the map data available
- Static image is shown 'covering' the main screen and has flashing arrows. Distance to junction is still shown on screen


so do you think that lane guidance might be available to 720 users in download, or is that going to require a hardware upgrade?

It will be available at some point but will require a map and software update.

A new application and map should be all that is required, although I wouldn't expect this to be made available for x20 units when the x30 range launch, it should be available though at some future point (I hope) - Mike

Interested in more detail on this. Especially - how does it cope with the situation where you have a long straight section of road, which was all one speed, and you now want to change the limit for one section of it. All the corrections we've been able to do via mapshare so far have only been able to use the section lengths of road that are pre-defined by the map. Some of these sections are quite short (eg between junctions) but some are very long so I wondered how you can assign a new speed to just a part of one.

You can select the road OR once selected use the Edit button to de-select segments of the initial selection until you have the correct section of road highlighted, at this point you can assign the new speed limit as required - hope this helps? - Mike

It's interesting, the lane guidance is great abroad but I am also concerned we have had alot of new models coming out in a 2 year time space with a high mark up price that de-values very very quickly. The 920 is already well under 300 which started at 499 if I remember correctly.

The TomTom one will be under 99 by Christmas if not earlier, will the public fork out hundreds of pounds for the top range models?

Just a thought, but as it is possible some new mapping approach has gone into this, to make ALL roads "segmented" for the purpose of amending speed limits where necessary, I wonder if the same underlying feature change will also apply to blocking and unblocking roads.

Probably explained better by way of an example, for some roads on my current map that I would wish to block only a small part of off, in order to make them none through-roads, I can't actually do this sometimes, as TomTom selects the whole length of the road on some occasions. This being based on however it is currently mapped by them.

So if this same mapping change for setting segments for speed changes also works throughout, this will be really handy in terms of closing certain sections of road only at the bit needed.

At the minute, this is entirely dependant on TT having mapped the road as a couple of separate sections. Where this is not the case, you can't close or block the road, as you will block the rest of the road too, which might not be actually "out of bounds".

So if anyone is playing with one of these at CeBit, could they maybe test that out for Blocking Roads too.

Oh and as requested by others here, have a play with how adding turn restrictions actually works too.

Cheers.

In some places it already is, isn't it mate?...

Darn - just searched, and it's showing as 112, but I saw a web advert banner for it for under 100 the other day. Wish I had noted down where it was from...

It might even have been one of the sponsor ads on this site, not sure.

But can't find it now alas

I am so gutted!

I have just bought a 920T four days ago and to see the new 930 is making me feel rather ill, especially as the Map Guarantee does not update both my maps to the latest version!

At the moment I have v710 and there is now a version v715 and it wont update, says I have the latest map already, umm I dont think so! I have contacted TomTom and will see if they can do anything, not hoding my breath though!

Update: Just got a standard reply back no real answer jsut press the Map Guarantee button and it will update, umm no it wont!

I will keep on pressing them!

I bought my 920 a few weeks ago - the Europe map came down with the Latest Map Guarantee but I had to pester TT to get them to put the USA map on there too (which thankfully they did).

Thought it came with the USA map as standard, was it not on the 920 when you got it?

So did you pester them by email or by phone?

It does... What Kiss was saying is that TT didn't offer the free UPDATE for the US map without a fight.

Strangly enough I cant even connect to Tomtom now after I sent back another reply to the standard reply, now it wont log on, oh well seems like this buy was not a good informed choice!

There were some re-furb units for 99 but these have now all gone, they do come and go. I was going to sell the units on my other site tomtomdeals.com but I was very worried about the prices droping so quickly so I now just fill the site with live data from Amazon. That gives you an idea of what the current prices are.
(I am not trying to advertise by the way just making a point)

The reason I made the point about 99 is that I know so many people that have been bought the 99 Navman as presents because of the price.

Personally I think TomTom is changing the units to make them thinner as quick as possible to compete with Garmin as the Garmin units are much easier to carry around.

It's all good fun watching it though!
