Good solution for world maps. Pros: good visible screen, solid built and good battery for offline adjustments. It can be easily taken off the windscreen holder. The touch screen works very well compared to older tomtom models. Possible improvements: address input little tricky, especially when programming for holidays far from home. 8gb internal memory only for europe map; buy another 16gb micro sd to get all maps into the navigator. Nb: even with all maps included, tomtom suggests to pay for maps of certain areas. This is why i didn’t give 5 stars.

Could be better, but still better than the rest, despite what which?. Love the clear screen – it is big though – make sure you have the space to use it safely. The instructions that come with it leave a lot to be desired – results in a lot of trial and error. This is my 3rd tomtom but i did struggle to find my way around it. Once i have understood the methods of inputting and accessing addresses it has become easier. But i’m least happy with the pc interface. This ‘my drive’ thing seems far less intuitive to me than the old tomtom home. There are some features on the mapping that i miss, like the ease with which previously you could fine tune your destination by a route review; i find that much more difficult now – took me a while to get the thing to realise that i lived at the other end of the street from where it decided the postcode was (ps. No other mapping system i have used has placed my postcode so far from my actual hour – odd)on the plus side, i have mentioned the clear screen – and it is good; hard to imagine how it could be better.

But would like it to tell me where traffic jams are &. Okay, but would like it to tell me where traffic jams are & to take me around them. Have found it finds some junctions difficult to negociate with instructions.

Fantastic piece of kit, had a tomtom xxl for six years, and could not fault it, decided to upgrade to the go 6100; what a difference. Brilliant satnav with all that tomtom has to offer. Would definitely recommend it, driving through italy, portugal, france and belgium was perfect.

A huge improvement on our previous tomtom via live 120. A huge improvement on our previous tomtom via live 120. I love the larger screen and it’s much easier and responsive to program. Haven’t had it very long, but we used in the usa – spot on directions – easy to view. Noe we’re using it in the uk, so far, so good.

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.

Sends you down the most awkward roads just to save a few seconds. This sat nav is pretty hit or miss. I used it to drive to london. And again to drive to paignton in devon. Both times it sent me in the most direct route it could. Which involved going through stupid tight back streets turning left and right. And on country lanes only wide enough for 1 car but are two way traffic. . Then when you poo out the other side you realise all it did was cut the corner out of the road you was already travelling down. So although it makes the journey quicker (providing you can actually get through the places without stopping which is not what happened with me on both occasions) it makes the journey a lot more stressful.I have no trust in this now which is a shame.

Integrated sim was making me to buy it , i give 5 stars for quality, design, easy to use interface and of course integrated sim with real time traffic. I’ll return with a full review after 2 months. I’ll travel true europe and i hope that he will make all this money.

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.

Pretty much always have to wait for it to get a charge even whe turning it back on shortly after being plugged in for a long journey. Shame as the navigation seems good.

Proved excellent on a 3 week trip around europe. Proved excellent on a 3 week trip around europe, the traffic and speed camera info proving excellent. As many others have pointed out the processor is a little lacking but that is primarily noticeable at boot up and doesn’t impinge on performance during navigation. Purchased as a warehouse deal for £181. 50 which i would consider fair value.
