Summary: Device itself is brilliant, the problem I had was that the maps were 3 years old when I purchased it, so check map version when you receive it. I must say though Tom Tom were very good at rectifying this. When you see this advertised it states free updates for 1 year, this does not mean the maps, so look into the small print.
Summary: Whilst I find the go 1005 better than my previous tomtom the new magnetic mount type fixing is a retrograde modification and transferring the cable between the car and home to update software is tedious. This cable is the perfect solution as I now have a cable permanently in the house. I believe it to be OE at a fraction of the normal price being sturdy and well constructed. Excellent value that was delivered by return post.
Summary: I want a sat nav with live services for work but don't want to buy a second sat nav for another vehicle and cost of sat nav plus live services twice . Have gone down the route of getting extra mounts for other vehicles plus extra connections . This means all I have to do is just move the sat nav itself to use another vehicle .
Summary: Didn't know how this would work out as my TomTom arrived without a mount. This is however a clever small piece of kit and once you are used to how to connect the recharge wire (which fits through a hole in the unit) it is speedy to assemble and install. But it did take a while to work out the safest and quickest way to do it without dropping the TomTom, some instructions might have been useful.
