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

 

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.

No traffic updates
