TomTom Go Live 825 review


The TomTom Go Live 825 sits at the bottom of the Go Live range of GPS devices from market leaders TomTom, but don't let that fool you. It has more to offer than the Via and Start models and comes packed with plenty of treats. But do you need something...

HD Traffic, large screen, Live services, Easy to use, ETA pretty spot on

Resistive screen won't be as good as your phone, Not all directions are perfect, HD Traffic will cost after 1st year

What the Go Live 825 gives you though is a very good, very easy to use GPS that will get you to the ball on time, every time.

TomTom Go Live 825 review


Affordable connected sat nav shows rivals how it should be done

Comprehensive maps ; Live traffic updates and intelligent routing ; Simple, easy-to-use interface ; POI much improved ; Hassle-free navigation, even on complex junctions

Live services cost extra after first year ; Plenty of cheaper or free alternatives ; Touchscreen could be more responsive

Sat navs may be one of the most beneficial gadgets ever invented, but navigating your way through all the available options can be a nightmare.

TomTom GO LIVE 825


Can the TomTom GO LIVE 825 simplify the company's offerings without dumbing down their features?

5in screen ; LIVE services ; European maps

LIVE services require subscription ; Mount not detachable

There’s nothing particularly revolutionary about TomTom’s GO LIVE 825. It bundles together features that the company already offered in other devices. In fact, it’s almost like a hybrid of the recent Via and previous GO LIVE models. But in a market...

TomTom Go Live 825


There's nothing intrinsically wrong with the TomTom Go Live 825, but where it falls down is on the question of value.

Easy to use ; HD Traffic service is free for the first year

Voice recognition is useless ; AU$69.95/year is a steep price for HD Traffic

There's nothing intrinsically wrong with the TomTom Go Live 825, but where it falls down is on the question of value. We'd pick the identically priced Garmin Nuvi 2595LMT over this TomTom, as the Garmin features free lifetime map updates and a...

TomTom Go Live 825 Satnav


The TomTom Go Live 825 satnav has been introduced by TomTom as part of their ‘connected' range of GPS devices; ‘connected' signifying their wide scale of available features.

We have to say, we were massively impressed by the TomTom Go Live 825 Europe and the only possible holes we could pick are the price – but even that can be explained by the huge array of features that come with it. The new additions of road names to...

TomTom Go Live 825


TomTom's new satnav is an update to our A List favourite - the Via Live - but is it as good?

Doesn’t add much to existing products, but it's still the best satnav around

TomTom Go 4.3 GPS


This product doesn't provide traffic data in the Metropolitin area at all nor out in the sticks where I live. It keeps stating looking for a radio station. Otherwise it works better than the old one in giving directions.

Works great


It does what I need it to do. I like the fact that I can if I want to talk to the gps or not if I want. I love that it rings when a traffice camera is near. I would recommend it to any one I can read it too without my glasses. Better than using the phone
