Excerpt: (1 items) The TomTom Go 2505-TM has virtually every feature that you could want in a nonconnected navigation device. And, the company packs all of that into a striking, slim chassis. The TM attached to the product name means that lifetime traffic and lifetime map updates are included in the $320 price.
Pros: Feature-packed, Slim profile, Ad-free traffic updates, Easy to mount
Summary: The new Go 2405 TM and 2505 TM are among the best GPS devices that TomTom has ever made, packing loads of useful features into a handsome chassis for a pretty good price.
Pros: The TomTom Go's glass capacitive touch screen is super-responsive and does a good job of showing off the updated interface's crisp graphics. TomTom's menu structure receives a major overhaul and is now much easier to use. Bluetooth hands-free calling, free traffic and map updates, and voice command for control and address entry round out a strong feature set.
Cons: The voice command system doesn't feature onscreen prompts or much spoken guidance, leaving users to check the manual to learn what commands are available. While much easier to use, TomTom's interface can still be a bit confusing and overwhelming as new users learn their way around.
Excerpt: The TomTom GO 2505TM is the top of the line model in the new GO 2×05 series, which represents the most significant refresh I’ve seen since the first TomTom I ever used, a GO 300 . The big changes are the new Webkit-based interface, a capacitive touch screen and a new magnetic mount.
Conclusion: The good definitely outweighs the bad when it comes to the TomTom Go 2505. Overall, the device is easy-to-use, clear, audible, and the GPS is lightning fast. What makes the device standout is the 5-inch touchscreen and truly stunning graphics. Navigation options will also appeal to the driver with options like avoiding highways, finding points of interest along the way, or perhaps a nearby parking lot.
Pros: Bright screen and impressive graphics, lightning fast navigation and fast cold start GPS fix, audible, easy to follow directions, detailed options for stopping at points of interest, detailed options for driving if you want to avoid highways, get there fast, etc., standard map and traffic updates
Cons: At times the device is counter-intuitive, the UI makes it hard to go back to a previous screen, the touchscreen proves for difficult typing
