Some customer reviews of TomTom GO 5000

Most helpful reviews

Christopher, Dartford Always use sat nav

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
The Screen is very clear, ans the traffic alerts are very useful in the south east.
Bad points:
A lot less functionality than the other TomTom devices I have owned. The ability to set specific sound alarm is missing or I have been unable to find it. Like wise I would like to be able to change the car indicator. Adding a favourite is now a real pain The loss of the bar at the bottom to one that hides means that you have a bigger screen but at the cost of other information.

Brian, Gt. Yarmouth Occasional user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Had a TomTom 700 for years, needed updating so decided a new one with lifetime updates was better value. Had minimum use so far but more than pleased with it so far.
Bad points:
You don't always have a full address but liked to be able to put a post code in and find it, sorry a step backwards

Paul, London Use it for work

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Maps are accurate. Graphics are very good and additional on screen data is very useful (it even displays current average speed when going through average speed controlled stretches of road).
Bad points:
Tomtom traffic only connects intermittently. Used the device 14 times (7 days travel to/from work) and it has failed to connect to live traffic on 5 occasions each time on the way home in the rush hour when it would be at its most useful.

Features which are not available on this model/software version are 'avoid part of route' (would be extremely useful particularly when live traffic not connecting), automatic volume adjustment depending on speed and spoken road names.

Lifetime TomTom Traffic brings you world-class traffic information for your sat nav’s whole lifespan, allowing you to arrive faster with accurate real-time guidance. It will specify exactly where delays begin and end, so you can plot the most effective route in advance.

Advanced Lane Guidance provides clear direction as to the right lane to take at junctions to stop you missing your turning. This keeps you more relaxed and safe while you traverse difficult highway intersections, especially in tandem with the realistic 3D junction views.
