TomTom GO 940 Live

 

The feature-packed GO 940 Live sat-nav adds to its predecessors' capabilities with a number of over-the-air data services aimed at increasing the efficiency of your journey. This sat-nav isn't without its flaws and is one of the most pricey we've come...

Good car mount ; useful High Definition Traffic, Google-search and fuel-price services ; intelligent IQ Routes technology

Pricey ; basic map view ; failure to switch between day and night mode ; not all safety cameras were flagged up ; not every area of UK has over-the-air coverage

The TomTom GO 940 Live is one of the most expensive sat-navs we've come across, both in terms of initial and ongoing costs. Yet, despite it being top of the range, it still suffers from some flaws. The device's wealth of features compensates for this...

HD Traffic, safety alerts, fuel prices, Google Search, advanced lane guidance, IQ Routes, Map Share, 3D Map View: these are just some of the seemingly endless features that TomTom has ploughed into the Go 940 Live.

Online Live services. Has an abundance of features

Factor in the Live subscription, and this is one expensive mutha

The TomTom Go 940 Live is a highly desirable feature-laden satnav at a highly undesirable price point.

TomTom GO 940 Live Review

 

In terms of development the TomTom Go940Live certainly packs in a hefty amount of cutting edge features, but that's not to say it's completely flawless and for the majority of ...

For professional drivers the GO940 will be ideal, as you can easily justify the extra subscription costs. For consumers the cheaper 740 or 540 may be the better option, unless you get the 940 from Handtec and even then you are paying over £300 plus...

TomTom Go 940 LIVE

 

The TomTom Go 940 LIVE is a GPRS-enabled in car satnav with 4.3-inch, 480x272-pixel touchscreen, 4GB Flash memory, Bluetooth and FM transmitter. Features include live traffic updates, Google searches, voice recognition and smart route timing.

Is this a satnav or an iPhone stuck on its side? The 940’s GPRS web connection is a long way from 3G but it’s just right for keeping you up to date with local road conditions, tracking down businesses and saving a third of a penny on a litre of...

You’ll have to spend a lot of time on the road at rush hour to justify TomTom’s £8 monthly fee for the Live services (although do you get the first three months’ free). The service has had some teething issues, too, including poor coverage in some areas

Salesmen and lorry drivers criss-crossing the country will appreciate the sheer wealth of time-shaving features on board the 940. Weekend drivers, however, might find this hitch-hiker an expensive luxury.

TomTom's new flagship sat-nav flies the flag in style

Class leading traffic data / Elegant connectivity / Simple interface

Expensive up front cost, plus monthly sub for LIVE services

One of the best aspects of the TomTom experience has always been its online services, but these always meant pairing up to a mobile phone via Bluetooth. With the new x40 LIVE series there's no need for any of that palaver, as the device now contains a...
