TomTom GO 2505-TM: Premium GPS Features in a 5-inch Package

 

The TomTom GO 2505-TM has virtually every feature that you could want in a nonconnected navigation device. And, the company packs all of that into a striking, slim chassis.

Large screen, full-featured navigation device with pleasing design, and lifetime traffic and map updates.

TomTom GO 2505 TM

 

The TomTom Go's glass capacitive touch screen is super-responsive and does a good job of showing off the updated interface's crisp graphics. TomTom's menu structure receives a major overhaul and is now much easier to use. Bluetooth hands-free calling,...

The voice command system doesn't feature onscreen prompts or much spoken guidance, leaving users to check the manual to learn what commands are available. While much easier to use, TomTom's interface can still be a bit confusing and overwhelming as new...

The new Go 2405 TM and 2505 TM are among the best GPS devices that TomTom has ever made, packing loads of useful features into a handsome chassis for a pretty good price.

Review: TomTom Go 2505-TM GPS device

 

The TomTom Go 2505 is a winner across the board. It has all of the features you need: a 5.0-inch screen, Bluetooth that works seamlessly, highway lane guidance, and lifetime traffic/map updates.

For those looking to save a few bucks, TomTom also offers the $300 GO 2405-TM, an identically featured device with a smaller, 4.3-inch screen. "M" only, "T" only, and base models aren't being offered for the newest entries in the Go product line in...

TomTom GO 2505TM review

 

Hands on with the TomTom GO 2505TM The TomTom GO 2505TM is the top of the line model in the new GO 2×05 series, which represents the most significant refresh I've seen since the first TomTom I ever used, a GO 300. The big changes are the new...

I really like the TomTom GO 2505TM hardware, a lot. The bright capacitive touch screen and innovative magnetic mount are great improvements. TomTom has redone their interface and managed to make it fairly intuitive, keeping the best features of old and...

TomTom Go 2505 review

 

Last week, TomTom launched its newest in-car GPS navigator, the TomTom Go 2505, for $319.95. The GPS navigator boasts TomTom's now standard features with add-ons like updated graphics and faster routing. Released at the same time was the TomTom Go...

Bright screen and impressive graphics, lightning fast navigation and fast cold start GPS fix, audible, easy to follow directions, detailed options for stopping at points of interest, detailed options for driving if you want to avoid highways, get there...

At times the device is counter-intuitive, the UI makes it hard to go back to a previous screen, the touchscreen proves for difficult typing

Although the device can be frustrating when it comes to pressing the wrong button and being unable to return to a previous screen, overall the TomTom Go 2505 is perfect for the basic function of navigating to and from a location

Review: TomTom GO 2505 Portable GPS

 

Tested during a short but vicious Winter storm, the TomTom GO 2505 Portable GPS guided us through almost whiteout conditions, managed to feed us updated traffic information and give us accurate distance, speed and ETA information.

Consumer review by:

"Nothing but problems. Worst GPS I ever owned."

 

I will never buy anything from TOMTOM again. I would not recommend that anyone else does either, unless you have money to waist. Customer sevrice is super slow. They will not stand behind their products more than one year, no mater how many you...

NONE, cant say one good thing about the unit or the company.

Purchased my GPS in Jan of 2011. Had the unit replaced twice in one year. After the one year warranty ran out and my third unit quit working right, they said there was nothing they could do about it.

Consumer review by:

"I like it but would like to see more content added."

 

Big screen, good graphics, fairly accurate maps. Updates using the Internet based function works well, but only when TomTom decides to send updates, which is very infrequent. Used it in Florida and it worked well there.

Very poor ability to add any additional content. Very infrequently updated by TomTom. Doesn't work with the computer based app that is used to update most other TomTom devices. Battery doesn't last long when not plugged in. Fairly heavy.
