TomTom’s new GPS devices allow users to have voice command of their unit
The new TomTom GO 750 and GO 950 both feature voice command and control, allowing users to operate their device by using their voice. Over 100 tasks can be activated by voice, such as planning a route, changing preferences or making a call. This means drivers can keep their eyes focused on the road and their hands on the wheel, contributing to road safety. In addition, both new models have an enhanced speaker, which ensures clear voice instructions and improved hands free calling.
Both the GO 950 and GO 750 combine TomTom’s IQ Routes technology with full attention being paid to the integration of TomTom’s routing technologies into the user interface of the device, making it more intuitive and easier to operate.
The TomTom GO range incorporates a new docking solution – the Active Dock – which has been designed for a premium experience with a smooth locking mechanism and integrated power connector.
Both new models feature enhanced graphics displaying smoother navigation screens for a premium driving experience.
The planning menu has been redesigned to clearly show the benefits of using TomTom IQ Routes, with route plans clearly showing expected delays.
On top of this, new menus including a frequent destinations menu have been added to calculate a route to a frequently visited destination easier and faster. Finally, an Eco Routes option has been added to the route options menu, so drivers may select the most fuel-efficient route to help reduce their impact on the environment.
The TomTom GO 950 features more maps including Malta, Greece and Turkey for the first time. In addition, both the GO 750 and GO 950 offer TomTom’s unique Map Share technology which allows users to make instant changes to the map and share these with others through TomTom HOME, TomTom’s free desktop application.

The TomTom GO 950 comes with pre-installed maps for door-to-door navigation in Australia, New Zealand US, Canada and 45 countries in Europe and offers Enhanced Positioning Technology (EPT) for uninterrupted navigation even when driving through tunnels.
The new TomTom GO 750 and GO 950 series calculates the fastest routes based on the world’s largest collection of historical speed profiles. This ever-growing database forms the foundation for TomTom IQ Routes and now includes over 800 billion historic speed measurements of 15 million road kilometres across the world.
Once on the road, the device is constantly checking if there is faster route, drawing on billions of available measurements from IQ Routes.
