Great interface with a compact, portable design, well-rounded hardware, and superior voice quality

Touch screen technology is not very bright in sunlight ; need to download maps to MMC/SD card

TomTom GO review


TomTom GO

Strong receiver; bright color touch-screen display; extremely accurate; clear verbal turn-by-turn directions; lightweight; 256MB SD (Secure Digital) card and U.S. maps included.

Vehicle mounting base is difficult to remove without causing damage to your car.

The TomTom GO in-car navigator is one of the coolest portable vehicle GPS systems we've seen to date.
