Our Site XL IQ Routes Edition

With the top models go 740 live and go 940 live is Our site brought its IQ routes technology on the road. Tests have shown that these routes are actually smart, now. Now even the smaller ones get missed Intelligent route: about the XL (199 euro, with TMC) there now as IQ routes Edition.

But what makes intelligent IQ routes? In recent years, the Our site navigation systems travelling on our roads have recorded, they were how fast time of day and what day of the week. For almost every road in this country. These data were collected anonymously at each synchronization — the result is a gigantic database.

This gives the Dutch pilots a good idea of where it worth what time not to go around the main street with traffic is clogged. Also the factor of traffic stops is far better calculated, as inner-city traffic light stop-and-go routes with tempo 50 will be settled, but the actually realistic pace.

Improved routing

Compared to the predecessor XL without IQ routes, the new Our site navigation system now actually shows a better routing. While you ever twitched with its predecessor by a 30 zone, is traveling with the two new mostly on recommended routes.

Interestingly, IQ routes tends to will not always be covered a local would. Thus, the Navi in the city test chose partly apparent go astray, then mostly proved quite useful.

So, one wonders why you are parallel to the main street with its Our site. The answer could be: because there fewer traffic lights – 20 seconds are saved. Something adds up. On main roads is certainly pronounced, the feeling to be right. Still and all Gemoser in detail: IQ-routes the routing-wort whets out, hanging small Our site.

Much well done right

Our site achieved his aim, to build good navigation systems, thus also in the lower price range? Only almost. Except with the now good route choice, the Dutch continue to shine with the very liquid and well operable menu.

The here tested “small” Navi is also very in fact, because there are not too many features at the first level. Only the setting menu you can cavort in some time. There is also a button, to detoxify the already manageable menu to a few entries.

Our site has almost managed to be a synonym for mobile navigation systems. With this success, many associate the typical Our site design with the blue-and white rebar. It’s worth, all honor exemplary good readable showing you the important information.

Map display unchanged

The right tracks at motorway exits will be neatly marked with green flashing arrows, and the who ever had a Our site, now copes with the new.

But this also means that the fairly simple Our site map display has remained unchanged. On it you find yourself while your way, but above all NAVIGON shows that something can look also much prettier.

Also since a long time a construction site is the voice of Our site’s. “At the roundabout turn left, turn left” and commands such as “Go right” are indeed content comprehensible and point the way, but it is not nice and eloquent. Of course, the guidance itself does not diminish because the Anssagen are so content often unique.

Crash in the tunnel

At the preceding model, noticed that the card in the State to turn began, for example, at a traffic light. Also, our test candidate has this naughtiness. The ride through long tunnels acknowledged the device with the demolition of the navigation. This is although honestly, but competition and also Our site Go 940 show that must not be.

Conclusion: The XL for $199 is generally equipped with TMC and is it still a found 4.3-inch display. Who wants more, for which the Navis come at the upper end of the Our site League (and the naviconnect– leaderboard) go 740 live and go 940 live in question.

The offer although not too pretty representation, the ultimate ounce have more under the hood but with HD traffic IQ routes, plumper & equipment and high functionality.
