TomTom Go 950 Live review


A premium sat nav at a premium price

Simple and easy to use ; Good range of tweakable options ; Lots of genuinely useful features

High price tag ; Some voice instructions can be ambiguous ; Annual subscription charge

If TomTom sets the benchmark by which other sat navs are judged, then life for the competition has been even tougher since the Dutch company introduced its Go 950 Live flagship last September.

TomTom GO 950 GPS unit


TomTom's current premium GPS device is the GO 950, a svelte, professional-looking unit

Ease of use, simple and effective UI, responsive touch screen, world maps included, voice control, EPT technology

No traffic capabilities, voice control is hit and miss, rerouting is a little sluggish

TomTom's GO 950 is ideal for frequent travellers, as it includes many international maps. If you don't require the extra maps, the GO 750 will do the same job (though it doesn't include EPT). That being said, this remains an excellent GPS unit that...

TomTom Go 950


In-car GPS

I've checked out plenty of in-car GPS solutions but up until now, I'd never found one enticing enough to want to mount it in my own vehicle. TomTom's top of the range GO 950 GPS finally broke that pattern, and has been stuck to my windshield for a few...

TomTom GO 950 LIVE


In order to keep receiving the LIVE services you will need to pay a monthly subscription, but you can consider the free first month as a trial period to determine whether you require LIVE or not. The GO 950 will continue to function as an excellent sat...

TomTom GO 950 LIVE Satellite Navigation System


TomTom products are generally fantastic I've owned Tomtom satnavs from day one and the quality of the maps and ease of use have for me always been clearly ahead of the competition. The 950 Live is top of the class (on paper) with everything you could...

I've had numerous issues since my purchase of the 950 Model. The device on paper looks good but in practice there are significant problems. The unit constanly freezes and reboots. It is slow to calculate routes and again freeezes when r=writing the...
