TomTom Go 750 Live
Advantages: clear display, live traffic updates, easy to use/read, makes driving less stressful and care free
Disadvantages: none other than its a potential theft risk
For my 17th birthday like every boy i couldnt wait to get in a car and go, the sense of freedom, the sense of independence, the dread of not passing your driving test. but that dread very quickly disappeared when i got into the car for my first time and realised this is it, it is happening. a few months later i had passed my driving test with only a few minors and as a present to say well done i received the TomTom GO 750. i was exstatic to say the least as i often got myself lost and realised navigation was not my strong suit. the TomTom GO 750 is very simplistic to use, has a user attractive layout that can be customised to the users wants or needs with various different voice outputs to make that initial car journey as comfortable as possible. the maps them selves are incredibly detailed yet simplistic enough where you dont need to strain to look ahead and know where your going with very clear, consice and accurate route guidance with enough time to implement your driving needs. on the display you will see the route intended to take which can be manipulated to avoid routes of bad traffic, particular motorways and even tolls, whilst selecting the shortest journey time for you. you will recieve live updates of traffic information well in advance to allow you to adapt your route and avoid those long queues, and has an time of arrival estimation located at the bottom which in my experience is incredibly accurate. there is a notification symbol that shows you the next change to your route and the distance of which this will occur, which to be honest i use more frequently than looking at the map itself. the TomTom GO 750 also has various other features such as bluetooth for hands free calling, and also allows you to access you music library to play directly through the speakers of your car.
the unit itself is very well designed with a 4.3inch touchscreen that is sensitive and easy to use, anti-glare screen which can have the brightness adjusted or swapped to night mode as the sky lights dim, to make driving all the more easier. and an adjustable, screen/dashboard connector to allow you to truely angle and place it at a vantage point that is ideal for you.
the only negative to this product is that its to good, too useful and very attractive, which makes it immediatly a theft risk, and so i would advise storing it away and wiping any marks on your wind screen/dashboard as this will entice people to come have a closer look, which unfortunatly happened in my case. but i learnt from this experience and promptly bought another TomTom GO 750 as the product itself was remarkable and i cant say a bad word against it.
Summary: brilliant product, i would reccommend to everyone to relieve the stress of navigating whilst driving
