The TomTom ONE IQ Routes boasts leading technology available before only on the top end models. It allows you to take the routes the locals use and removes the uncertainty of not knowing where you're going or when you'll arrive. It knows that the fastest route on a Sunday afternoon may be very different on a Monday morning. Advanced Lane Guidance gives you more confidence when dealing with complex junctions and there are also safety camera alerts and local fuel prices.

The TomTom ONE IQ Routes Europe is priced £169.99 (SRP) or £149.99 for UK/Republic of Ireland maps.

The TomTom XL LIVE features not only the intelligent IQ Routes system, which is based on average road speeds for any journey, but also HD Traffic - which gives you 'real-time' congestion data. So you're always on the fastest route, whatever the road conditions! There's Advanced Lane Guidance for navigating complex junctions, as well as safety camera alerts and directions to the cheapest local fuel. Tap into local Google listings and drive to the nearest Indian restaurant or flower shop, wherever you are.

The TomTom XL LIVE Europe has detailed maps of 42 countries priced £219.99 (SRP), whilst the UK/Republic of Ireland version costs £199.99.

The TomTom GO x50 LIVE range is the flagship series. It calculates the fastest routes based on the world's largest collection of historical speed profiles - 800 billion historic speed measurements of 15 million road kilometres. You get all the information you need about the journey before you set off, at a glance. Once on the road, this advanced sat nav constantly checks if there is a faster route, taking changing road conditions into account via a combination of IQ Routes technology and real-time HD Traffic information. There's also an Eco Routes option, so you can select the most fuel-efficient trip to help reduce the environmental impact.

The TomTom GO 950 LIVE has pre-installed maps for the US, Canada and 45 countries in Europe. The GO 750 LIVE offers navigation across 45 European countries, whilst the GO 550 LIVE features maps of the UK/Republic of Ireland. Available from the end of October 2009, prices TBC.

For anyone who already owns a TomTom sat nav device, you can now download the original Homer Simpson voice for just £7.95. Homer's comical and unusual advice helps you find your way to your destination - whether it's your favourite supermarket or doughnut store! Homer adds his own special words of wisdom to your journey, with commands such as "take the third right - we might find an ice cream truck! Mmm, ice cream".
