Graham, Northamptonshire Occasional user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
As a sat nav, it works fine.
Bad points:
In places, the maps are persistently wrong, suggesting that you stay on the same road when actually you're coming to a junction where you need to stop and give way.

Voice activation is appalling. Several attempts to 'Drive to an address' failed before finally it asked if I wanted to navigate to a mountain pass. When it does finally recognize that you want to navigate to an address, it won't accept a postcode. If you try to 'navigate to a postcode' it offers to take you to the nearest post office. If you want to use voice activation, or use the sat nav as a hands-free for your phone, I can't recommend this device.

Satellite Navigation Buyers Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

A 5-inch extra-wide touchscreen display will help you see your route clearly ahead of you and its intuitive touch screen operation makes changing settings safe and simple.
Advanced lane guidance will clearly show you which lane to take at junctions so you don’t miss your turning. On difficult motorway intersections, a realistic 3D representation of the junction will keep you relaxed and safe.
Speak & Go allows you to control your device with just the sound of your voice. Talk naturally, and it will recognise over 1000 commands. In a single step, say the name of an address, a point of interest or just “take me home” and TomTom plans your route straight away. Now you can navigate stress free and focus on your driving.
Use the Via 135 as a car-kit for your mobile phone. Now you can make and answer phone calls safely while driving via Bluetooth, keeping you in control and in touch.
Spoken street names means you can keep your eyes on the road, making turnings easier and safer
The QuickGPSfix feature speeds up the time it takes for your device to fix a GPS signal, allowing you to drive off sooner
Your device can show you the route which has a lower environmental impact as well most fuel efficient. Driving with more fuel-efficient routes will save you money as well as reducing your impact on the environment.
Avoid getting caught by speed cameras too thanks to an alert telling you when you approach speed cameras, fixed speed cameras and average speed checks.
An integrated mounting feature means you don’t need to carry around a chunky mount for your device.
