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

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...
