Warns you about hold ups and offers alternative routes!

Summary: TomTom's have been around for a while and everyone knows what the basic ones can do. This one is worth the extra money for 'Go Live'. Anyone who regularly uses our motorway system will find this piece of equipment invaluable. It warns you of problems ahead and offers alternative routes if the hold up is bad. My wife has been saved several times coming home from work on the notorious M62. Highly recommended!!!
Summary: I bought this one thinking it would be good, as an upgrade over the others, however have had so many issues with it. It worked very well until the 1 year free subscription ran out. Then, on the day it finished, it wouldn't connect to GPS. Now, two years later, it is in the bin as it won't even turn on. Tomtom have not responded to my complaint about this. I will never buy a Tomtom again!
Summary: I was using TomTom products for many years. This one was my first with Live services - which by the way I am very happy with. But the device itself is very slow. I cannot belive how long I have to wait to put a name of a new destination in it. Maybe I'm not a patient but browsing through menu taking so long... Anyway, it is a reliable and as I mentioned, the Live services are very good. If only the processor would be faster...
Summary: I bought the Tom Tom as I had a temporary company car which didn't have a built in GPS. It took some time for initial setup whilst connected to my PC, but since then it has been faultless. Several drives down through France and Germany have been easy anf in the UK it picks up traffic problems early and suggests alternative routes (although I don't always accept the proposed faster route).
Reliable and accurate with a wide range of options.

Excerpt: I bought this one to replace my old one. Easy to set up by following all the on screen instructions once converted to your computer. Once the TomTom programme is on your computer it is easy to update, Etc. You do need to go through all the options to ensure you have it set up to your own personal tastes. It also has a pretty good help section. Mine came with a free year of map updates, HD traffic and speed cameras. After this you can either subscribe or not.
Pros: Reliability, "fast and responsive", "nice size screen", "Accurate routing"
