Excerpt: I've been using my TomTom Go Live 950 for around a year now so I've had plenty of opportunity to thoroughly test it out. What sets it apart from other sat navs I've used is TomTom's HD traffic service.
Good but why did they take out so many of the old good features?

Summary: My 6 year old GO910 started having some power problems so I decided to upgrade. Looked at the 1005 but was worried by some of the reviews that it wasn't quite ready yet, so opted for the 950. By chance my 910 stopped playing up so I have been running the two side by side for 3 weeks.
Summary: Bought this to replace a broken GO520 and am pleased with the new features, especially the enhanced 3D image on difficult junctions/intersections. Have tried the traffic delay feature on a very busy M25, and was impressed with it's prediction, and it's attempt to find an alternative route - not sure...
Summary: Within 10 minutes of opening the Box I had my 950 Go Live working as intended. The purchase was in addition to an existing Go 910 so I was pleased to use the same TOM TOM Home software, albeit I had to use another Email address as the Units are not interchangeable.
Summary: Its a nice pice of kit and a huge step up from my old 740, as it has the "live" feature which is brilliant. The price was very good. I do find the instructions that come with Tom Toms, a bit light.
Summary: Very happy with the TomTom G0 950 Live. It was the cheapest we could find and the only one that included USA and Canada in the price. Found the bracket that holds the unit to the car window not very substaintial. very flimsy and difficult to attach or detach the unit to it.
Summary: Excellent navigator with many features. The best things are the LIVE services like POI search function through google and traffic hd that provides real time information about possible traffic jams And then the live services are free for a year!
Summary: This device does what it says on the box and it was also value for money. I notice on the web site this product has been reduced in price since i bought mine a month or so ago so now this really is good value for money.I also purchased a bluetooth remote control for this item and they both work...
Summary: When I first connected the 950 to TomTom Home it took several, I mean SEVERAL attempts to download EUROPE map update. AMERICA was no problem. No reason was given and I could only report it anonymously, so no feed back available. The unit itself is very good and easy to use.
