Summary: I bought the Tom Tom 6000 because my Tom Tom 825 while it had been working fine, failed when installing new maps. Because of an imminent European driving holiday for which a sat nav was essential I choose the 6000. This was because in order to receive up to date traffic you either have to connect to your mobile phone with subsequent data charges incurred, lots of charges if in Europe or buy a more expensive device with lifetime live services. Hence the 6000.
Summary: When I read the description Argos got it so wrong. You can not connect to your phone, to make calls or even have your text displayed or even read as said on the TomTom web site. Seem to have a lot of money for a nav system that does not deliver. Wish I had just renewed my old subscription service on my old TomTom.
Summary: I think it only TomTom to blame for any negative reviews. It needs a very little effort on the software to get the 5 starts easily for this device even with no Bluetooth and no voice control. The software provided has no features at all despite the huge hardware capabilities where the device is always connected without consuming a bit of your mobile data allowance and you can easily get the latest map.
Summary: The instructions are useless with help for setting up preferences. Only one English You -Tube help. My one will not Hold Home Route in Preferences, this has to be entered each time it is used.
Summary: I bought the case as it was the only one available for my TomTom 6000. As other readers have mentioned it is not as rugged as the cases available with earlier models and I don't think the nav would survive a drop. It does fit rather tight and will help prevent screen scratches, if nothing else. The magnet that acts as a latch has also moved around within the case (to the back) and as such does not 'stick' closed.
Summary: Ive had the 6000 for a few weeks now and felt the time was right to put in my review and recommendation. Basically, STAY AWAY from it until they update it as I honestly feel TomTom have released a half finished product that almost had me throwing it out of the car window 2 days ago. it was almost midnight and i had just driven 6 hours and came up to the M5 junction on the M4 with the intention of going to the South West.
