Christopher, Dartford Always use sat nav
- 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
- 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
- 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.
