TomTom GO 300


When we first reviewed the TomTom GO in October of 2004, we were extremely impressed by its handling and 3D navigation view.

Antiglare touch screen; 1GB SD card; very portable, and practical even for pedestrian use.

Would like to see text-to-speech technology integrated into vocalized directions.

Though we like this feature on the GO, the current crop of Garmins goes one better and automatically defaults to the state you are in. After all, these devices know your location, and it is more likely that you'll be headed to a city in your state or...

TomTom GO 700 Car GPS Navigation Unit Review


The TomTom GO 700 is one of two models in TomTom's car GPS navigation range to have a built-in HDD (hard disk drive) with the premium GO 900 model being the other. If you've looked at the entry level GO 900 and have wanted hands-free phone calls using...

TomTomGo 700


The Go 700 is TomTom's first hard-drive-based GPS system and its natty casing is home to 2.5GB of storage, but is it up to the challenge of Britain's congested roads?

Hard-drive-based GPS with 2.5GB storage. Mapping for entire European road network. Bluetooth connectivity.

Guidance through one-way systems a bit hit and miss. Traffic alerts glitchy. Remote and touchscreen approaching overkill.

TomTom Go 700 review


The Go 700 is TomTom's first hard-drive-based GPS system and its natty casing is home to 2.5GB of storage, which pays dividends when abroad, since there's no cumbersome loading of European maps on the ferry. This comparatively large memory has the...

TomTom Works good BUT...


All in all, it's a nice little unit. I would not hesitate in recommending it to anyone.

The product has not failed to point me in the proper direction whenever I have added the detination where I was headed. If I made a change in course, it re-adjusted instantly and led me in the rigt direction

The negatives are ; 1 - some streets that are 3 years old are missing, others show them leading into the wrong entrance (for example, my street is not accessible from the major roads without hitting other streets 1st but the TomTom tells me to turn...

Highly recommended


I have owned portable GPS units made by 2 other manufacturers and did a great deal of research before purchasing this unit. Unlike some of their competitors products, this unit is up and running in no time at all. This is a huge plus because some...
