TomTom Go 720T
Advantages: Speed cameras, hand held, customisable options, optional extras
Disadvantages: not always accuratem exoensive to update
I'm an awful driver when it comes to navigation! I get lost the minute I drive out of my driveway so having a satnav in the car was a like a blessing. I have quite bad nerves so it also helps knowing that, I can always find my way back to home.
Hmm where to start...
Appearance: It looks nice and feels nice! It is small and light so will fit easily into a bag or pocket and its not big and clumpy like the Go 510s which are huge. The screen is a fantastic size.
One of the things I love about this model is the extra features, the novel features such as adding photos and music, it helps when your on long journeys and have to make a few stops, you have something to do! I love being able to add your own Points of Interest on there too and customise the symbol representing you, I have a replica of my car.
In terms of reliability, yes as with any map, sat nav there are moments when it will go wrong, I once found myself one week driving fine, the same route the following week was a one way street and I had 2 lanes iof traffic heading towards me, as long as you bear in mind that the sat nav is not infallable it should be fine. I was fairly new to the motorway when I got this so it was brilliant having it depict, state and show on the screen which lanes to take and when.
The T satands for the traffic antenna that you get with it, and once you finally manage to get a signal after faffing around with the antenna it for the majority of the time is pretty good and you can save time.
Features such as the speed camera warnings are again helpful, but again not always 100% accurate!
The weather and live services are optional and you do have to pay to use them.
The main downside to the TomTom sat navs is the fact that you have to pay to upgrade and update your maps and they work out really expensive. But apart from that, I couldnt live without mine
Summary: good sat nav
