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

With mapping apps becoming more and more popular, standalone GPS devices have to set themselves apart. The TomTom Go 600 ($279.99) has a nice 6-inch screen, optional voice control, and free traffic alerts via a mobile app. It's on the pricey side...

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

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

Disappointing Upgrade

 

Purchased due to Tom Tom website video of 3D. Very disappointed with quality of 3D, no facility for map share correction input from user. No help section, no "where am I" so no precise latitude / longitude for emergency services to locate you easily....
