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

Road warriors shouldn't forget that an even higher-spec model – the TomTom Go 1000 Live – will be available by the end of the summer.

TomTom GO 950 GPS unit


TomTom's GO 950 is the company's current premium GPS device. It's a svelte unit that has the features appropriate to its premium price tag. Boasting m...

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


For whatever insane reason, TomTom have decided to remove live traffic updates from all their new models, which relegates them to nothing more than an overpriced Gregory's street directory and are thus almost useless.

ease of use

No traffic updates
