TomTom Go Live 1005 review: is there still any point to the peripheral GPS?

 

Smartphones these days have increasingly large screens, sophisticated mapping systems and a wide selection of accessories for attaching them to your car wi

: The Go Live 1005 is a fine peripheral GPS device that shows how far the breed has come over the past few years. Good as it is though, it’ll have a hard time competing with smartphones. And that leaves us wondering how long devices like it will still...

TomTom Go Live 1005 World, a GPS bar none

 

Who needs a GPS when you have a smartphone, right? Wrong. The TomTom Go Live 1005 showed me a different world where you can watch the road and know where y

TomTom GO LIVE 1005 World

 

TomTom's new flagship adds Twitter updates, comprehensive mapping and online travel information services.

Extensive world map package ; Twitter update facility ; TripAdvisor and Expedia services

Automated Twitter updates can annoy followers ; LIVE services only available in some of Europe ; Premium price

On paper, this function will either fill you with horror or a sense of possibility, or maybe both. On the one hand, there are definitely situations where having a publicly accessible statement of where you are going and when you might get there could...

TomTom GO LIVE 1005

 

After raising the bar with the GO LIVE 1000, TomTom now increases the screen size.

The extra screen real estate may be the only difference between the TomTom GO LIVE 1005 and the European mapping version of the 1000, and you pay a £40 premium for this 0.7in greater display. But that means it's still the same cracking navigational...

TomTom Go Live 1005 Review

 

Not the cheapest, but we reckon the big screen, software and slickness are well worth the outlay

TomTom’s Go Live 1005 calculates its routes double-quick, taking into account the time of travel, using the most accurate traffic info and laying it all out on the clearest, newest, most smoothly anim

TomTom Go Live 1005

 

Sure, your phone might have a free satnav service these days, but it won't be as good as TomTom Live's: with bang up to date maps built in, a huge five-inch screen and even live traffic, this is the gold standard of turn by turn. At least, on paper: we...

TomTom Go Live 1005 World 5-inch GPS Review

 

In an increasingly competitive GPS market, does TomTom's latest flagship device measure up?

In a day and age where most people are happy to simply download GPS software onto their smartphones, the question many GPS manufacturers must ask themselves is, “Are we still relevant?”

TomTom Go Live 1005 World review

 

If your car doesn't have one already built-in and your smartphone doesn't quite crack it, the TomTom Go Live 1005 World is a top of the range sat-nav, which provides good routes in real-time for avoiding traffic.
