andrew, york

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
just driven to italy through france and germany and switzerland and the only time that the tomtom got it wrong was on the A1 in lincolnshire where the roundabouts are no longer roundabouts as there has been recent road changes not on this current tomtom map? The directions apart from that road were immaculate and especially on the way back skirting Paris where there were lots of changes to the route but the tomtom handled it in her stride, giving plenty of time and the correct instructions at each change in road.Excellent!
Bad points:
Apart from the A1 going south from york through lincs where roundabouts are no more, cannot say there were any real bad points about this model of tomtom that i purchased.

announce street names, as well as sms and traffic messages.

your maps instantly. It also lets you share and benefit from fellow users’ changes – daily, automatically and easily
via TomTom HOME. And even better, TomTom has the world’s largest satellite navigation community that can

Speech Recognition:
Speaking an address, to tell your device where to take you, is much easier than typing. TomTom GO 520 & 720 understand the pronunciation of city and street names. You can also answer questions while driving, so you can keep
your eyes on the road with the combination of text-to-speech and speech recognition technology.

For example:
Your GO 520 or 720 asks:
• “Traffic delay now 12 minutes; shall I try to optimize?”
• “A new text message was received; shall ! I read it aloud?”
and you just reply “! Yes” or “No”.

Best Navigation
At the heart of the TomTom GO 520 & 720 is its navigation performance:
• High sensitivity GPS chipset gives you the best positioning.
• Industry-leading route calculation takes you there the best possible way.
• Should you deviate from your planned route, fast route re-calculation adjusts to your new location instantly.
• And when you first turn on, TomTom QuickGPSfix™ technology is best at finding the GPS satellites, to give you even quicker start-up.

1. The TomTom RDS-TMC Traffic Receiver receives standard “TMC

air”, rather like the traffic reports you hear on your car radio. The 520T & 720T models come with this Traffic Receiver as standard.
2. TomTom’s Traffic service*. combines traffic information from several top quality providers. TomTom uses the most reliable,
accurate and real-time traffic information available. It sends this information to your TomTom device, via your Bluetooth® mobile
phone, whenever you want. TomTom GO will even give you notice of adverse weather conditions for the route ahead

  • N ot available in! all countries. A data-enabled Bluetooth® mobile phone is required. Check your network operator for any data charges.

*Hands-free calling. Safer and simpler *

keep hands on the wheel and eyes on the road. With optimized acoustic design, enhanced noise reduction, echo cancellation technology and the
new high performance speaker the GO 520 & 720 give you the best hands-free calling experience, comparable with Bluetooth® hands free car kits.
