TomTom Go 600

 

With a 6-inch screen and generous features, the TomTom Go 600 goes above and beyond the average standalone GPS device, but it may be overkill for some.

Large touch screen. Voice control. Free traffic alerts.

Traffic alerts require linking to smartphone. Confusing voice prompts.

Navigation, MyDrive App, and Conclusions When navigating, I found some of the voice prompts confusing. Sometimes it told me to keep right when I was simply driving straight down a highway. That led the Miles to Next Turn indicator to be inaccurate,...

TomTom GO 600

 

An outstanding sat-nav with a six-inch screen and lifetime traffic

Speed warnings as you approach jams ; Lifetime European map updates and Traffic service ; Redesigned menu interface with unified search

Speed camera updates still require subscription ; Weather and local search not part of online services ; Premium over smaller-screened GO models

You also get lifetime updates to the maps that came with the device - either UK or EU, depending on model. There are some downsides, however, particularly with the European mapping version of the GO 600 we tested. If you want to use the GO 600's Live...

TomTom GO 600

 

TomTom's premium GPS has an all-new and very clear interface that makes searching for locations a charm.

Simple searchable interface ; Good spoken street names ; Excellent rerouting

6 inches is almost too large for a GPS ; Power button is hard to press

The GO 600 is a great GPS that works simply. TomTom's improvements to its UI at first appear to be mere window dressing, but with extended use, it quickly becomes apparent how clever they are. They're good for quick searching and choosing locations...

Consumer review by: ADI 1 (very.co.uk)

Not perfect, but nearly.

 

I updated to the Go620 from an older and smaller Tomtom. The display is very clear and easy to read and having now got a 6in screen, it would be very difficult to go back to a smaller screen. Route planning, instructions all very good. The unit can be...

Useless

 

Voice control very rarely works, the routes it produces are not the fastest routes and not eco friendly

Has everything you need in a sat nav and more

Very Good

 

Very nice Sat Nav. The big wide screen makes viewing easy and the WiFi makes updating much easier than having to plug into a computer. Would be better if it came with a case, but still excellent.
