TomTom might be in a bit of a tussle with the EU lately, but that isn't stopping the company from announcing two new GO models at CeBIT this morning -- say hello to the GO 930 and 730. The updates to the popular 720 and 920 now feature TomTom's new IQ Routes features, which uses a database of historical vehicle speeds along different paths rather than speed limit information to generate route guidance, and Advanced Lane Guidance (shown above), which aims to make navigating complex interchanges a little simpler. Other than that, there's not much of a bump here: both models feature the same 4.3-inch, 480 x 272 touchscreen, 400MHz CPU, Map Share and traffic as their predecessors, and the main difference between the 930 and the 730 is the presence of a dead-reckoning accelerometer in the 930. Expect the $500 730 and $550 930 to hit in April.
Update: If you're in the Netherlands, UK, and Germany, you can also score HD Traffic versions of these bad boys as well, which come bundled with TomTom's new GPRS HD Traffic receiver. The tiny box plugs into a range of compatible TomTom models and provides high-quality traffic data. It's out in the Netherlands now and should be out in the UK and Germany later this year, with France to follow in 2009.
