Stunning display and functions, only let down by no option to change various warning sounds as with my older tomtom, you are stuck with what they have set on this device, i dontlike it but hoping for a change maybe in a software update.
Easy to use for sat nav novice. As a first time sat nav user i was unsure how i would get on with this but have had it about a month now and am very pleased with it. The large screen is easy to navigate see, and gives me clear instructions, and the traffic info has saved me time on long journeys by steering me away from hold ups (my main reason for purchase). I also like the voice control option for when i’m driving. I haven’t used ‘my drive’ much but can see this will be useful for planning holiday routes and trips out in future.

Great, but consider ordering a memory card at the same time. . Bought three of these for my office and they get a lot of use. They are really good and easy to use. A couple of things to note: if you want to add the world maps you do need to buy a memory card for it as it doesn’t have enough of its own capacity. Also be wary if you are going on a short journey you still need to plug it in because the battery doesn’t seem to last very long at all.
Tomtom have come very far with their devices, the software is more intuitive, maps are easy to read and follow during navigation, batter life is reasonable, the traffic update via android phone works via bluetooth works like a charm. The device is compatible with world maps but you can only install selective regions at a time e. If you have western european installed, you may not be able to install eastern european at the same time due to limited internal space. Otherwise a great device to have for any car driver. Would have given it 5* if the device could hold the entire world maps on it.
Ok, but not as good as our old tomtom. Software seems buggy and incomplete. . The good:- screen and speaker- map presentation- navigation gets you there. Routing generally ok in the uk- favorite places function and cloud back upthe bad:- old poi functionality is lacking- slow to recalculate route if you head off piste- the screen sometimes updates slowly so i miss my exit. – sometimes the textures look hideous- international maps are out of date. New roads are missing in italy for example- sometimes overseas, it had us driving in circles. Seemed to get very confused- voice recognition is poor. Even after turning this feature off, sometimes the device stops navigating to ask you to repeat instructions- when setting off on a journey, the device often auto selects a destination i have traveled to before and know well. Frequently this is the wrong destination.
