NaviGadget: TomTom just announced TomTom GO 930 at CeBIT in Hannover, Germany today. The new model will feature two new innovations from TomTom.One of these new features is the IQ routes which makes use of the historical speed data of more than 6.2 billion miles of roads to estimate your arrival rather than just relying on posted speed limits.
The other new feature is the lane guidance (just like Navigon’s Reality View) which provides realistic views of complex freeway intersections and help you stay on the correct lane.
