TomTom brings high-end features to low-end models

One and XL models given IQ Routes

Security for virtualized datacentres

TomTom has designed two satnavs for cheapskates, both featuring technologies previously found only on the firm’s higher spec Go gadgets.

The TomTom One IQ Routes and TomTom XL IQ Routes are essentially updates of the existing One and XL models, but both black-bodied models now feature IQ Routes technology for finding the best driving route at a given time of day.

For example, drive to work at 9am and IQ Routes will tell you to go one way. But drive into the office at 3pm and it may well suggest an alternative, faster route.

Lane guidance to help you navigate difficult or complex junctions has also been added to the new models.

Settings for finding the cheapest petrol and for spotting speed cameras before they spot you are included, but only as a free three-month trial – after which the subscription service costs £35 ($51/€38) a year.

TomTom’s equipped the One IQ Routes with a 3.5in display and the XL IQ Routes with a slightly larger, 4.3in screen.

Both models will be available later this month, with the One IQ Routes set to cost £150 ($218/€164) and the XL IQ Routes will be priced at £190 ($276/€208). Both models include UK and Ireland maps. ®
