    I found the device easy to set up, including downloading and installling the various software and map updates. In use it made navigating the last few miles to my destination a lot simpler, quicker, less stressful, and more reliable compared to my previous unassisted efforts at doing this.

    The touch screen itself seems a little inaccurate at times, and sometimes you have to press in a slightly different postition than that indicated to a get some buttons to work. The display and voice features work together smoothly, and voice directions only come in when necessary – I did not find these in any way excessive or intrusive. There is also a good range of voices to choose from.

    The manual included in the box will get you started, but is very limited and , to become familiar with all the device features and options, I recommend going to the TomTom website and downloading the full pdf version of the manual, or using the online html version. The device is very flexible in use, provided you know how best to access the various features.

    I opted to purchase the air vent mount for it rather than attaching it to the windscreen, and found this to be an excellent alternative. It comes in two parts. One part attaches to the air vent, and the other (incorporating a ball and socket joint) attaches to the satnav, and in use simply clips on or off the part attached to the air vent in order to mount or remove the satnav. To attach this second part to the satnav, simply detach the stand that comes with the satnav, and fit the air vent mount instead. Note that the ball bearing type joint has a section removed from it, so adjust the position of this to make removal of the fitted stand easy, and likewise the fitting of the air vent socket joint. You will also need to reverse the direction of the detachable back plate.

    The Basic model does take a microSD card, but the slot is tucked away under the detachable back plate and not immediately obvious until you look carefully. If necessary you can also check out the TomTom youTube video which shows where to find the memory card slot.. The TomTom site gives information on compatible memory cards .

    All in all I am very happy with this purchase, and it has proved its value on a recent trip which provided an opportunity to get familiar with the satnav and see how how it performed on an unfamiliar journey and destination.

    All I can say, is I’m glad it came with an app! Trying to enter an address on this thing is a nightmare, especially when in the middle of driving…need to add a stop? Well good luck, because it misreads where you tap, is either under sensitive or over sensitive and scrolling down is more difficult than it needs to be, if it even lets you scroll down.

    I’ve had Tom Tom my whole driving life, with my last one being £40 less than this and lasting seven years. I only needed a new one after it got stolen from my car. – So safe to say I was really disappointed in this.

    Never the less, when you’re actually on the road towards a destination, it’s one of the best sat navs out there. It tells you well within good time about turnings and exits off of roundabouts, which lane to be in etc with a great little zoom in too. You can’t underestimate how good a sat nav is, when it lets you know where you’re going, a few steps ahead. Nothing worse then coming off a slip road in the left and then finding out you’re meant to be taking the third exit off of a roundabout when you’re now stuck in the left lane going left only, because the sat nav only told you to come off the motorway and not the next step.

    So if you’ve got the patience to tap billions of times before you are able to select your destination, then this is worth every penny. It also isn’t as good as my old sat nav in terms of data entry…put in a postcode and it doesn’t offer up a chance to choose which number or street!

    I bought this as a replacement for my TomTom Start which is now 7 years old. From Ipswich to Cornwall and surrounding areas with low mobile phone coverage

    + pro, – con

    + screen updates very often when moving round roundabouts and such. No confusion on which exit to take.
    + screen is large and very clear but reflects the light a little. Better than a phone screen, but not as good as a Kindle, for example. It wasnt particularly detrimental.
    + adding navigation points and rest break is super easy.
    + services and roadworks/congestion shows up on your “timeline” (the vertical bar on the right that describes your journey). Theres even a timer to how long it is till your next “event” (queue, service station etc)
    + instantly finds GPS where my old one had difficulty
    + maintains signal to GPS when mobile phone navigation would have long failed.

    – Operates on “TomTom Minutes”, in which your journey time increases with no reason, even if you’re consistently ‘making good time’ *cough*. Example – 1hr 30 slowly worked up to 1hr40 even though there was no traffic
    – Takes a while to boot up – about 20 seconds or more, when turned off (theres a sleep modem however i didnt try it)
    – screen is not as sensitive to use as a phone screen. need a bit of pressure to work
    – notifications for…something… seem to beep randomly without a corresponding event on screen
    – advertises as free live traffic updates but you actually need to download an app and pair your mobile to it. The data used is really small though (less than 5MB for the whole week) so dont worry about that too much.
    – seems expensive really for what actual useful functions it has.

    Bought for grand-daughter, because her first car did not have built in sat-nav. She is very happy with it.

    It is more than I expected. It costs £150 to dealer up date my Mercedes sat nav. This TomTom has Europe maps and has unlimited updates and speed cameras included. I spend 3 months in Spain every year so perfect with excellent detail and at £100 a no brainer. 6″ screen is more than adequate. Charges from 12 v cig lighter with cable included. 😊
