TomTom Navigator 6Tom Tom on your mobile (988 words)

Having used Tom Tom Navigator 5 for a year or so I heard good reports of Navigator 6 and spent around £100 to purchase it back in 2007. There was not a huge difference between the 2 versions but Tom Tom 6 had a nicer display, showed more information e.g. current speed and location of speed cameras The Tom Tom Navigator software is designed to be used with Symbian mobile phones and you will need a separate GPS receiver to get it to connect to any satellites. These cost around £30 at the time and are connected to the phone via bluetooth. The receivers work well but once I upgraded to my Nokia N95 I wanted to use the internal GPS receiver that came with the phone rather ...
TomTom Navigator 6TomTom - slow, large but still simple BEST (239 words)

I use T Tomtom Navigator 6 with my mobile phone - MDA. I have also tested nearly all other software for navigation so i will try to compare. TomTom has the best menu navigation - it has only 5 items menu so it is possible to browse in menus when you are driving even if you have got a small display on your PDA. The menus are simple and it is very easy to adjust something very fast. Maps for TomTom are made not by countries as it is normally done by the others but by packs of countries so you dont need to switch maps so often. On the other hand if you choose igo2006 for example you can have all the maps at once and then no need to switch anything - there brings TomTom some ...
TomTom Navigator 5 Great BritainMy first Tom Tom :-) (742 words)

the routes it chose - it would sometimes want to take me on very narrow roads and on one occasion the wrong way up one way streets. After upgrading to Navigator 6 I found this less of an issue so I suppose you could knock points off Navigator 5 for that but overall it did such a good job I find it hard to give it any less than full marks. It was possible to connect the phone to your computer to download updates to the maps but I found this slow going and surprisingly expensive. I did it the once though (mainly because I was being the route I was given through Lincoln kept asking me to somehow drive through some bollards) and had no problems afterwards. I ended up using ...
