Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very easy to use even for people like me who hate any new technical stuff. Great at re-routing quickly when you cannot go down a road because of roadworks/accidents etc. Makes you feel safe when driving on your own in an unkown area.

Satellite Navigation Buyers Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

The new TomTom XL IQ Routes 2 arrives in a sleek black finish and features new helpful features and an impressive 4.3” touch screen to make operation and navigation even easier. This version includes maps for the UK and Republic of Ireland.

Using the TomTom XL couldn’t be easier – simply plug in, switch on and go. It features door-to-door navigational instruction – you’ll make your way with sharp colour graphics, a new clear user-interface and crystal-clear spoken instructions (in 24 languages).

New features include a simplified menu and a clever spoken street names feature which reads out the name of the street you are entering so you can keep your eyes on the road.

The IQ Routes function ensures you automatically have the most reliable travel and arrival times on the device. Depending on the time of the week or hour of the day you plan to set off, the most efficient route will be calculated for that particular moment. It takes into account any factors that can affect or delay your journeys based on facts derived from years of gathering anonymous historic speed measurements.

The advanced lane guidance feature makes navigating difficult or complex junctions, or crossing multiple lanes, easier and safer. It gives drivers timely vocal instructions and clearly indicates which lane or exit to take on the screen of the device, and provides a clear view of the road layout ahead.

It also features postcode navigation for simple and accurate selection of your destination. You can choose your route in a number of ways e.g. quickest, shortest or avoiding toll roads and congestion charges.

With TomTom MapShare you can add to, update and personalise your maps instantly, or even download ones which have been corrected by other drivers. This means you’ll always have the most up-to-date maps, and inside local knowledge at your fingertips.

The pre-installed map has Points of Interest from petrol stations to hotels, so you are sure to find what you want and it also comes with fixed safety camera alerts pre-installed, to help you to drive more safely and responsibly.
