UPDATE: This model has been discontinued. For current recommendations, please refer to our TomTom comparison chart.
The TomTom GO 920 / 920T is TomTom’s new top-of-the-line GPS navigator. This one has it all — pre-loaded maps of the U.S., Canada and Europe, voice commands, FM transmitter, Bluetooth, text-to-speech, Map Share, remote control and an included traffic receiver. The TomTom 920 has everything except that the traffic receiver, which is available as an optional accessory.
The really hot new features on this unit are voice commands and what TomTom calls Enhanced Positioning Technology (EPT). This uses dead reckoning sensors to help keep track of your position when you lose satellite coverage (in tunnels, etc.).
Step down to the TomTom GO 720 and you’ll lose the EPT, voice commands, remote control and you’ll have to pay extra for the traffic receiver. To see how the TomTom GO 920T compares to other units, check out our TomTom comparison chart.

GPSReview.net has posted the first hands-on TomTom GO 920T review, which focuses extensively on voice commands, the remote control, and the traffic receiver. I’m glad to hear the positive reports on the latter, since earlier TomTom traffic receivers have seen less than stellar reviews.
