TomTom ONE IQ Routes Edition Satellite Navigation Unit UK & ROI
List Price: £129.99
The TomTom One IQ Routes has all the great features of the TomTom One Classic but expands and adds even more features:
Working out a route from A to B isn't as simple as it sounds. There are many variables to take into account, such as type of roads, traffic conditions, road works and even the time of day. TomTom's IQ Routes feature takes many of these factors into account to give you the fastest route and the most reliable estimate of the time it will take to arrive at your destination.
Advanced Lane Guidance
While the basic satnav's offer great directions they sometimes leave a little to be desired when it comes to lane planning. With the Advanced Lane Guidance in the TomTom One IQ Routes you will get adequate information well ahead of time to ensure that you are in the correct lane to make your turn.
When you're travelling along the motorway, it's pretty easy, just one long straight road. If you lose the connection to the GPS satellite for a few minutes or seconds, you probably won't even notice. However, if the same thing happens around town you could find yourself getting off course and having to make a lengthy re-route. The TomTom One IQ Routes speeds up the time it takes getting a GPS fix, hopefully meaning a quicker, smoother, journey.
Along the road system there are signals being broadcast concerning the traffic conditions nearby. The TomTom One IQ Routes is capable of picking up these signals. You are then warned about the conditions and a new route can be planned. You have to pay a subscription to receive the TMC signal, which is not included.
Summary: If your budget can stretch a little up from the TomTom One Classic then this a great sat nav that you won't need to upgrade any time soon.
