Took a while to set it up out of the box. It needed updating straight away and with my dire internet speed this took nearly an hour. I also set myself aside some time to have a proper play with it and go through all the settings. Very user friendly device, i’ve never used a tomtom before but found my way around it with ease. Has been great in the road, haven’t come across any problems yet with it sending me towards a low bridge or weight limit. While it’s a great tool you still need to read road signs and use an ounce of common sense alongside it. Sometimes it’ll take me to a road with a 7. 5t weight limit but with an acces only exception.

Good but very slow performance. So far this has good and bad points, the worst problem with this is the slow response time. It takes too long to turn on and load up, if you press anything before it has finished loading up it will freeze. I have updated this and it hasn’t fixed the issue. With such an expensive satnav, this shouldn’t be so slow. I have been to new housing estates which aren’t found by this sat nav. I bought this mainly for the track side but also the route planner, i do multi drops and this is useless for that. It doesn’t seem to let you do multi drops in the order you need. This was a big let down for me as it takes up too much time from drop to drop to set it back up. The good side with this is that it hasn’t led me down any roads that i can’t drive down.

You’ve probably read a lot of reviews already on the tom tom trucker 6000maybe i go against the grain in deliveries to weight limited and restricted areas as i deliver to farms in the middle of no where around the country. I also read reviews that it takes you down country and narrow lanes yes it sometimes does but it’s not necessarily tom toms fault although roads may be narrow and unsuitable they arnt actually limited by the local authorities when they probably should be. . So a lot of common sense and additional planing is required. Yes it’s frozen on me once and took 3 mins to reboot i was tipping at the time so no dramas had it happened on the road i may have launched it out the window. Yes it can sometimes take a while to respond to button presses. Most of the new truck speed limits have been updated but not all, it seems to be a bit all over the place. But so far it has avoided ‘signed weight limits’ unless i need to be within the limited area it doesn’t make a fuss it just takes me there. Areas to avoid are shaded in pink with nice clear on screen instructions. Traffic function seems to work well.

Keeps you right for low bridges, speed of roads and going the right way. Suitable for truck, caravan and car.

Good quality unit, poor mapping. Previously owner off a snooper sat nav caravan addition, used this for 5 years driving class 1, may of only given me the odd bum steer, but downloading map updates was limited and a pain. So decided when the snooper died to go for tomtom 6000. Good looking unit, clear display, with good traffic and camera programmes although these are only free for the first year. Website is good and easy to use for map updates. But i have been using the tomtom for a couple of months now and lost track of the number of times it has sent me into trouble, either sending me to restricted roads or to roads that are not restricted but u would not want to take a 44 ton class 1 down. Also some of the junction instructions have a lot to be desired, with the names on the road junctions not relating to the names on the maps, or the voice instructions, also a number of industrial estates not in the poi. You can send update messages to tomtom, but should not need to when these updates are years old, i must be in high teens now. If the mapping issues were resolved this would be a good unit, as it is you constantly worried where it is sending you.

It took a little getting used to. The mileage wouldn’t reduce and it kept slipping into demo mode, but on it’s maiden use, i got split from the convoy in oslo, a city with loads of tunnels, and it took me straight to the venue.

You make your own decision. . Better than the 40-50 pounds one. Some addresses dis-appeard from search. They said they would fix it. That means i am still waiting for an update. Btw i recommend buying the one without the live feature just because it keeps sending you the “faster” routes and they turned out to be slower, 80% of the time.
