Summary: I was never going to buy another TOMTOM after my experience with the Go 540. However the appeal of lifetime maps and traffic tempted me too much. I quite like the 6000, but it is designed to simplify. For example to enter a location you type in the search. Type in Tescos and it will give a list including the nearest one. I like that idea as it saves going through several screens. The traffic display is a bit clearer.
Summary: This is a very expensive satnav and the software should be better. It does a pretty good job of standard car journeys in the UK and France. However it let us down very badly on holiday as it does not accept latitude and longditude coordinates.
Summary: As a TomTom user for some 10 years I decided to update my ageing TomTom 950. Which was getting slower and slower with each update and I thought I would wait an extra couple of weeks for the all new TomTom 6000.
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: 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.
Summary: I liked the size despite the fact that they did not take the opportunity to increase the size of text. I also liked the speed that it found the sats and calculated routes. But that was about it. Everything else about the new GO series has already been well documented elsewhere but my particular dislikes in no particular order were: 1. The inability to search using GPS coordinates.
