TomTom GO 940 Live review


TomTom's flagship satnav has a price tag to match - is it worth it?

Live services work well ; Improved motorway junction close-ups ; easy to setup and use ; new windscreen mount is miles better

speaker quality ; route calculation could be quicker

The TomTom GO 940 Live is about as state of the art in satnav as you can get - as long as you don't mind paying the enormous asking price.

TomTom Go 940 Live


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

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 Go 940 LIVE is tagged with TomTom Go 940...

TomTom GO 940 LIVE


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...

Very clear and precise directions. Screen clear and easy to follow. Still learning "how to" so can't make further comments.

Not always clear why map size changes by itself! Sometimes goes very small.
