TomTom Via LIVE 120 review


TomTom's impressive LIVE Services get squeezed into a less impressive form factor

God-like HD Traffic ; Hands-free phone calls ; Map corrections and updates

Ongoing subscription required ; Ageing, low-res display

The TomTom Via LIVE 120 slots into the TomTom sat nav range below the top-end Go LIVE 1000 devices and consequently it doesn't have as many fancy features. The screen isn't as roomy; there's no pinch-to-zoom and it lacks the neat magnetic window bracket.

TomTom Via LIVE 120


Some of the key technologies of TomTom's flagship GO LIVE 1000 are now available for a mid-range price.

The remaining LIVE Services are less unique. Google Local Search is included, as it is with virtually all mobile data-enabled sat-navs. This provides a keyword-based national Points of Interest search, which goes well beyond what’s available in the...

TomTom Via Live 120 review


Despite a couple of minor flaws, the Via Live 120 is a great satnav. We just hope MyTomTom is fully working soon.

If you already own a TomTom satnav with live services, there's little incentive to upgrade. If not, the Via 120 isn't bad value at £175. This includes full coverage of Europe, and Google Local Search works in other countries too, not just in the UK....

TomTom Via LIVE 120 GPS


The TomTom VIA 120 GPS is a small package crammed full of features, we see if it's worth the asking price

TomTom Via Live 120


TomTom brings the price of data-enabled satnavs to a new low; we road test it to find out if cheap equals good

An excellent satnav with all the features you need to get to your destination – and at a good price too

launched to market but not ready to use


Absolute nightmare. 12 months live services advertised - mine has 10 months. No updates available on line and as a result you cant update speed cameras, poi's or more importantly get any map updates. The device its self is ok but on 2 business trips...

Highly Recommended


Found this sat nav very easy to use. The LIVE has saved me lots of time as if there is any congestion it re-routes me, and the google seach is useful when working away it helps me find places to eat etc.

Good Sat Nav But Not For Cameras


I bought this device partly for the speed camera alerts. It seemed to make financial sence to get a device with both features and with the Road Angel speed camera database. The only problem is the alerts for the cameras cannot be adjusted. On older...

great sat nav

poor speed camera alerts
