*** I try to update this review regularly, but to see the full (and current) list of software updates, visit the TomTom website here http://bit.ly/VtrbFW. This review relates to software version 15.202 and all previous ***

This is an in depth product review (updated after around 24 months use) for TomTom's premium navigation device, the GO 6000 (but will also largely apply to any of the GO X0, GO X00/X10 and GO X000/X100 devices - for this reason, I have also placed this review within their respective pages). My aim is to provide an honest viewpoint that will help you make a decision about purchasing, whether you're a complete newcomer to sat-navs, or use them on a daily basis. In certain aspects, I will compare this device to my previous sat-nav, a TomTom GO LIVE 1005 World. In recent reviews of TomTom's latest sat-navs I have seen a worrying trend of consumers buying a product without really realising what that specific model can, and more importantly can't do. I will attempt to enlighten you all.

Let's get this out the way.
Around May/June 2015, TomTom updated most of their lines of sat-navs, which makes updating this review more than a little complicated. The reason being, just because TomTom no longer sell certain models on their website, doesn't mean that you can't still buy them, so I will try and encompass every model of the GO that you can currently purchase - here goes...

GO SERIES = THREE RANGES:
There are essentially three ranges of sat-navs within the GO series. Each starts with a number.

Style Name: GO 500 UK - 5 inch Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The TomTom Go 500 to me has been something of a confusing device to get to review. I am a huge fan of the TomTom GO LIVE 1000 4.3" Sat Nav with Europe Maps (45 Countries) - I even replaced it with a new one just a month ago after a botched battery replacement by yours truly obliterated the GPS chip - rendering the device pretty much useless.

So in my opinion the Go 500 and as an extension the TomTom GO 400 Europe and TomTom GO 600 Europe are all following in some pretty big footsteps. The Go 1000 is not perfect. Fact of the matter is that it was underpowered so it never rendered map changes very quickly which led to a framerate which would make even the most casual gamer cry. However, as a package the TomTom GO LIVE 1000 4.3" Sat Nav with Europe Maps (45 Countries)is still brilliant. Live traffic services, good quality maps and brilliant route planning made it pretty much unbeatable.

Which is why in my mind all the Go 500 needed was a new user-interface - as the one on the Go 100 had become very dated - and a better processor to enable the rendering of maps to be much quicker giving a more acceptable framerate. But that isn't really the way TomTom do things.

The Go 500 is a top to bottom redesign.

I've always used TomTom for my sat nav devices, this is by far the worst I've used.

1. Traffic through my phone connection. For months my iPhone would not connect to give me traffic updates despite my phone saying it was connected while TomTom said it could not find my device (iPhone 5s). A recent firmware update does seem to have resolved that issue.

2. The battery life is non-existent. To the point that even though my device is in it's dock pretty much all the time and plugged in to the charging port of my car, if I take it into the house of office to put in an address and plan a new route, the battery will go dead and the TomTom shuts down. I can now regularly be found on cold dark mornings sat in my car entering locations that I am heading to that day.

3. After the update that I refer to in point 1, my TomTom now has lost all the saved locations that I had. Ok, I had a back-up that I can restore from, but this must be the only product in the world that does not re-install your personal settings after an update.

4. Having realised my saved locations had been lost, I plugged my device into my PC this morning to attempt to retrieve them all. My device is connected via USB to my PC and confirms that it is connected to my PC. The TomTom software however tells me that I need to register a device to my account (already been done) and that there is no device currently connected (clearly not the case)

In summary, when it works it is everything I expect from TomTom. Unfortunately there are just too many "niggles" that should not be happening, it is a poor product and not recommended.
