Summary: Great navigator except I have experienced problems with display light. First model light stopped working after a few uses, got a second and am having the same problem with display light not working.
Summary: This device is great with respect to all the standard features. However, I bought it primarily for handsfree calling in my car, expecting it to be a good replacement for the Garmin I had, but discovered on use that the phone call audio is not routed through my car stereo. Phone call audio is heard through the small speaker on the back of the unit. I have to lean forward while driving in order to hear people speak.
Summary: I purchased this unit to aid in navigation during automobile trips. The unit works suberbly in this manner. We were able to use it to find restaurants that we wanted to eat at in strange towns. It's ability to recompute a new route based on your missing a turn is fast and efficient. The reason that it did not get more than 3 stars is after the trip I went about updating the maps via TomTom's software and website.
Great GPS with voice input for addresses, cool design, nice features

Summary: What I like most about this GPS is that I can speak the address I want to go to instead of typing in the address. The screen is very crisp and it has so many features. I have seen the advanced lane guidance and and it looks great and makes it very clear which lane you should stay in if there is a split in the highway. I have never had any trouble finding a satellite quickly and the traffic receiver is just a bonus feature that comes in handy in busy areas.
Summary: The TomTom GO930T is a very good navigation device, works as advertised, includes maps from America and Europe so far no real complaints. Navigation is very accurate, the lane support is great and acquiring a satellite connection is done in a very short moment. I wouldn't give it a 5 star rating because the internal memory is to small for today's world - 4GB isn't that bad but doesn't allow you to get both included (America & Europe) maps onto the device at the same...
Summary: For Canadians: The pros of the 930 are: 1) bluetooth works great for some phones (check their website though) 2) Voice input (but just for address inputs, not POIs) 3) Great on route navigation using mapshare, routing road avoidance and POI's being build into a route and showing all POI's you select on map.
Summary: I've owned Garmin's for more than 5 years and I currently own a NUVI 760. I've heard the great news about the TOMTOM 930 with IQROUTES, lane guidance, and the HOME feature so I decided to buy the 930 so I can give it a spin and compare it to the NUVI 760 with MSN DIRECT. TOMTOM Pluses: Arrival time - The arrival time with IQROUTES are MORE accurate than Garmin's. The NUVI keeps updating the arrival time during the trip.
Nice features and software, but poor display and USA maps

Summary: I purchased TomTom 930 today, and I am writing this review after driving about 60 miles with it. I also went to a local BestBuy and compared the interface with a Garmin. TomTom 930's software has a few revolutionary features which makes it superior to any Garmin: * MapShare let's you correct the map, and share the corrections with many other TomTom users. This makes TomTom superior to Garmin, given that many people in your neighborhood use TomTom.
930 a good PND, but not much different from the 920

Summary: Pros: Much improved trip time estimates Better routing choices than previous TomTom models Interface customization options Cons: Hard to see screen in bright light No route optimization TeleAtlas map accuracy (at least in Florida) Inability to route to off-road locations Operating System stability I've had the 930 since the end of April, running it side by side with a Garmin 760. Overall, it's been a fine performer.
