TomTom GO 920/920T review

Tomtom_go_920t

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.

    TomTom has come out with a 930/930T. Are the two new features worth the $150 more over the 920/920T? Are there software fixes or upgrades that add to the usefulness of the newer version

  2. The biggest change is the addition of IQ Routes, using historical average speeds. There’s more info on this at http://www.gpspassion.com/forumsen/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=109732
    One unanswered question is whether TomTom will make this retroactively available to owners of older devices.

  3. i like navigator tomtom 920.i live in india.if i buy tomtom 920 also possible change india maps route?

  4. vikram,
    I don’t believe TomTom sells maps of India. How about the MapMyIndia GPS?

  5. Nice!
