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 review


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


A dedicated GPS deice? Yes they still make those. And this one from TomTom is actually pretty decent.

Quick continuous routing (and rerouting) keeps you one step ahead of the traffic snarls. Helpful magnetic click-and-lock mount system should’ve been invented a long time ago. Voice recognition gives you control over basic functions while keeping your...

Traffic receiver in charging cable means you have to stay plugged in to steer clear. Hard to type in locations on touchscreen if you have fat fingers. No music options

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...

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.

"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.
