It is loaded with maps of the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Scandinavia and more European countries.The available unused hard drive space is around 12 GB.
Summary: For early adopters, the TomTom GO 910 is the GPS gadget du jour, offering the latest and greatest in portable navigation systems. That said, we wish it had a better mounting system and a more up-to-date POI database.
Pros: The TomTom GO 910 comes preloaded with maps of North America and Europe, and it features integrated Bluetooth, text-to-speech functionality, and a 4-inch color screen. Plus, it has a built-in MP3 player, can display photos, and offers iPod compatibility.
Cons: The TomTom GO 910's POI database is outdated, and it comes with a flimsy windshield mount. It's also a bit pricey, and the screen is hard to read in sunlight.
Conclusion: I am really impressed with the interface on the TomTom GO 910. It is up-to-date and very user friendly. I especially like the way the map movement is very smooth. The warranty is also better than other GPS devices. The only complaint is the maps.
Conclusion: Can the best get better? Well possibly. We test the new TomTom Go 910, this top end offering has full street level maps of Europe and the USA plus text to speech and mobile features. With stronger competition than ever before can the Dutch keep their number 1 slot?
