Excellent, but is this a dying breed?. Bought one of these over a year ago to replace another tomtom device that i had to pay for new maps and live traffic on. This one has those, plus speed camera updates for life for free. Downside is that updating maps requires you to take device into the house and spend an hour or more updating, for major releases. I believe the new 6200 downloads new maps from the car over its own sim. Great development, but not reason for me to change. Basically these are the best satnavs you can buy. You pay for the best of course. It is far from perfect though. Its much easier to find a restaurant or whatever with google maps to be honest.
The website though is utter rubbish.
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. Here are the specifications for the TomTom GO 610 6 inch Sat Nav:
- Enter your model number
to make sure this fits.
- 6 inch widescreen resistive touchscreen
- Integrated mounting with flip screen
- Featuring enhanced lane guidance and route planning
- Equipped with fixed speed camera alerts and spoken street names
- Free lifetime world map updates with the latest map and traffic updates via smartphone connectivity
The best satnav i have ever owned. I wanted to give this a thorough testing before i reviewed it. I have used it every day both locally and across the country. When i first received the item i was frustrated to find that the live services would not work no matter what i tried. I was on the verge of sending the unit back but i contacted customer support who were very apologetic and professional in their response. It turned out that a batch of these units had a fault with the live service but it was at tom tom’s end and not a fault with the unit itself. They said a fix was being sought and they would contact me once it had been done. Sure enough after 5 days they contacted me and said the live service would now be active. I switched on my tom tom and it was working fine and has been ever since. In way of an apology tom tom sent me a semi hard case for my 5100 free of charge, so full marks to customer services.
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.
Reviews from purchasers :
- Could be better, but still better than the rest, despite what Which? say!
- Ok, but not as good as our old TomTom. Software seems buggy and incomplete.
- Must have satnav
Present for my husband who loves it.
Great quality tom tomive had a few different ones over the years & this is by far the bestit tethers with your phone to give accurate traffic reports & detours around delays.
