TomTom GO Live 1000

 

"Les fonctions connect\xe9es offrent un vrai plus, syst\xe8me unique d'information trafic, guidage pr\xe9cis et interface claire"

'Absence de fonctions multim\xe9dia, alertes radar pas toujours claires'

'Le nouveau PND haut de gamme de TomTom fait le vide du c\xf4t\xe9 des fonctions annexes et des accessoires pour mieux se concentrer, avec r\xe9ussite, sur le guidage et l\x92\xe9vitement des bouchons.'

TomTom GO LIVE 1000

 

The sat nav market is becoming a very crowded place, and the quality of hardware has rocketed in the last year.

Great LIVE services ; Great touchscreen ; Decent value

Sticky menu system ; Bulky unit

A good sat nav with great extra services that really make a positive difference to your driving, but this wasn't quite the all-rounder we were hoping for. The wrong directions were disappointing, and the menu system too confusing for this to be an...

Is TomTom's new high-end sat nav good enough to lead the line?

Sticky menu system ; Bulky unit

TomTom GO 1000 GPS unit

 

TomTom GO 1000 review: The TomTom GO 1000 has a 4.3in capacitive touchscreen and a completely redesigned interface.

Capacitive touchscreen, slick design, redesigned interface, excellent performance

Voice command is hit and miss, not notably faster at recalculating routes, no traffic capabilities, no Australian text-to-speech voice, MyTomTom software currently limited

The TomTom GO 1000 is one of the best-equipped GPS navigation devices on the market, making it ideal for those who use a sat nav every day. The user experience is slick, functional and very well designed. However, less frequent users will get better...

TomTom Go 1000 Live review

 

Nicely redesigned interface, easy to navigate, some customisation options, Bluetooth, Google Local Search, HD Traffic, magnetic mount

Bluetooth phone memory function didn't import all contacts, price, some occasional lags in navigation (might get fixed prior to release)

TomTom have based the new Go 1000 on a WebKit platform and tell us that it has been optimised for third-party expansion. At this point in time, there is little evidence of this sort of expansion, and you have to question whether you want apps in the...

TomTom Go 1000 Live review

 

Whilst it is impossible to ignore convergence and the growing popularity of satnav functions on your smartmobile, for many there is still a place for a dedicated satnav device. TomTom is hoping that continued innovation will keep pushing sales of their...

Nicely redesigned interface, easy to navigate, some customisation options, Bluetooth, Google Local Search, HD Traffic, magnetic mount

Bluetooth phone memory function didn't import all contacts, price, some occasional lags in navigation (might get fixed prior to release)

A welcomed refresh to a system we already liked, but as a headline device, the TomTom Go 1000 Live is packed full of features that some might never use, at a price some might not want to pay. There is no question, however, that it is an excellent...

TomTom Go Live 1000 - First Look

 

A new direction for TomTom?

New interface, the promise of apps in the future, new slim hardware, virtually every feature you can think of that you would need

What TomTom is creating here is a new beginning, taking an already popular and successful format (they've sold over 45 million devices so far) and moving it to the next level. With the webkit platform as a base, TomTom will be able to create something...

TomTom raises the bar once more on sat-nav technology

Improved menu system, Fast route calculation, Live traffic, updates

Expensive, Live traffic incurs an ongoing cost

TomTom Go Live 1000 review

 

The TomTom Go Live 1000 is probably the best sat-nav on the market. It's fast, accurate and will do a better job than most other sat-navs of keeping your maps up-to-date.

Fast, accurate navigation ; Advanced traffic-avoidance system ; Integrated Google search

Rubbish voice-recognition system ; Live services are only free for a year

The TomTom Go Live 1000 is probably the best sat-nav we've ever used. It's fast, accurate and has a wealth of extra features, although some are more useful than others.

TomTom GO Live 1000 review

 

TomTom is well known for the simplicity of its GPS devices, and the GO 1000 continues this tradition. It features just a single power button in the top-left corner as the only physical control; this doubles as an indicator light when the unit is...
