TomTom GO 500 review

Digitaltrends
27 August 2014
  • Excerpt: The trouble with navigation isn’t usually finding your destination, it’s finding the quickest way to your destination. One of the first companies to deliver useful live traffic information to solve that problem on its portable navigation devices was TomTom. Now the company is giving it a new spin with its $250 GO 500.
  • Pros: Reliable maps, Excellent traffic information, Quick response times
  • Cons: Smaller icons make interface trickier, Smart phone required for traffic info

TomTom GO 500 Review

GPS Tracklog
11 July 2014
  • Excerpt: The TomTom GO 500 is the top of the line in the most recent editions of the GO Series, launched in January 2014 (Not to be confused with the older, clunky GO 500 model released in March 2005). The new GO 500 is 5 inches and features lifetime map updates and lifetime access to TomTom Traffic (formerly HD Traffic) services which include Jam Ahead warning, Road Work detection, Road Closing Detection and traffic cam warnings.

  • Summary: The TomTom Go 500 has voice recognition and lifetime map updates, and it comes preloaded with maps of North America. It also has excellent lifetime traffic, although you'll have to pair it with your smartphone for the traffic updates to work. However, if you're a regular smartphone user, this won't be too much of an inconvenience. Overall, this is easily one of the better car GPS units we reviewed.
  • Pros: It has voice recognition software, so you can command the device verbally.
  • Cons: It needs to be paired with your smartphone to get traffic information.

  • Pros: Excellent search functionality, Responsive screen, Good overall navigation experience
  • Cons: Safety alerts require yearly subscription, Live traffic requires smartphone tethering, Map Share not available, yet

  • Excerpt: Kortet i centrum Det første, der falder i øjnene, når man tænder TomTom Go 500, er, hvor simpel brugerfladen er. Under almindelig navigation er der ikke meget andet end kortet på den 5” store skærm.
