UPDATE: This model has been discontinued. For current recommendations, please refer to our TomTom comparison chart.
The 930 has a 4.3″ wide touch screen, pre-loaded maps of the U.S., Canada and Europe, and text-to-speech. The latter feature means that you’ll hear “turn left on Oak Street” rather than just “turn left in 1/4 mile.” It also includes Bluetooth for hands-free calling, a built-in FM transmitter and TomTom’s Map Share technology, which allows users to make some map corrections and share them with others. TomTom doesn’t give an exact number of points of interest (POIs) on their devices; they simply say “millions.” Regardless, I find TomTom devices to have an adequate number of POIs.
Step up to the TomTom GO 930T to add live traffic, though this can be added later to the 930. Drop down to the TomTom GO 730 and you’ll lose the maps of Europe, the remote control and the 930’s Enhanced Positioning Technology that offers continued tracking when satellite signals are lost. The 930 is so similar to the 730 that I highly recommend you check out my hands-on review of that model.
