HD Traffic™

It's often helpful to check the radio, TV and internet for traffic news. But most of these sources only give news on the main highways. And that information won't make any difference to route calculation on your device. Our leading HD Traffic™ service, however, gives drivers more detailed updates on more of the roads – live on their TomTom device. Users can view detailed incident reports, estimated delay times and alternative route proposals in an instant. The result? Drivers stay calm and in control, with the most accurate journey durations and arrival times.

IQ Routes™ Technology

Only TomTom uses actual speed data collected from millions of users to accurately calculate the travel time of your route. It allows for rush hour, traffic lights, even shopping crowds. So no matter what time it is, you can rely on IQ Routes to tell you when you'll get there.

Eco Routes

Driving with these more fuel-efficient routes saves you money as well as reducing your impact on the environment. Your device can show you the route which has a lower environmental impact, using the driving data of millions of TomTom users.

The menu system allows easy access to services such as map corrections, TomTom places search and weather updates.

Through our unique Map Share™ technology, drivers can make corrections to their map and benefit from thousands of corrections made by over 40 million TomTom users every day – free of charge.

Over 5 million Map Share™ corrections have been made worldwide to date.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Good but Flawed Sofware 7 Feb 2011
    Model:GO LIVE 1000 UK & RoI
    I deliberated for a long time before taking the plunge. The decision was between this TomTom and the traffic version of the Garmin Nuvi. I decided on the TomTom, as magazine reviews said that the TomTom had a more comprehensive live traffic reporting service. Apparently the Garmin's traffic covers motorways and major roads only and as the traffic facility was the major reason for upgrading from my existing original TomTom satnav, TomTom it was.

    Out of the box, the bigger and clearer screen is a great improvement over my original TomTom.

    However, setting up the device started to show why this model has been heavily criticised elsewhere. I put in my address to define Home to the device. Apparently number 3 in my street does not exist, neither does number 1 or 5. This is strange since my earlier TomTom recognised my address correctly. Never mind, I will use the facility to put my current location as my Home address. Problem solved.

    I next put in my eldest daughter's address as a favourite. Neither the post code nor the street was recognised by the device. I was not entirely surprised by this, as this post code and address has only been in existence for 18 months, because it is a new housing development. So much for TomTom's claim that the maps and data are up to date.

    My step-mother's address was also a problem. The post code was there but her road was not. This is no newly built estate, but one that has been in existence for 35 years. Not impressed TomTom.

    I have used the device for about 6 weeks and am generally happy with the basic functionality. The lane guidance on motorways is a good feature, as is the integrated Bluetooth facility for hands free mobile phones. It connected easily to my Blackberry and my wife's Nokia.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Reduced functions, but fantastic SatNav 6 Nov 2010
    By A. Kirk
    Model:GO 1005 LIVE Europe|Verified Purchase
    TomTom have been market leaders in simplicity and accuracy of navigation for many years now, and I have been a loyal follower having used several models. The new 1000 / 1005 series (1005 simply has a bigger screen), is another step forward in the device - slim, attractive and so easy to use. However, there have been a number of criticisms of these models as TomTom seem to be reducing functionality rather than increasing it - so, for example, you won't yet find the ability to add your own POIs, btu the company says that is coming.

    What you have here though is a continued refinement of the core functionality of the device - the ability to go from A to B simply, easily, with the minimal hassle and without getting lost, ending up in a dead end, or the wrong side of the country! The TomTom 1005 does that superbly. The box arrived just before I had to make a trip to Shropshire, via the M5 / M6 junction, the satnav was out of the box, in the car, fired up and ready to go within minutes - it is very intuitive. It comes with a year of 'live' services free (payment after that) and they are very good - accurately predicting each set of road works / traffic jams.

    The new mount is also very good - drop the satnav on it and magnets pull it into place - when you are ready to go, just pull it off...

    So, yes, there is some reduction in what it can do - if you want your satnav to act as a multi-functional, do everything in the car type of device, then perhaps one of the slightly older models will be more suitable, or await a later stage in the life of this model, however if you want the latest iteration and just need to get from A to B then it is very good - 4 stars only because it seems strange for devices to go backwards in functionality!

    4.0 out of 5 stars great bit of kit but you need to be aware 11 July 2012
    Model:GO LIVE 1005 World|Verified Purchase
    The 1005 world is first class but yet again TomTom shoot themselves in the foot through lack of memory capacity built into the device.

    With all the world maps loaded the device is full so if a bigger map comes along then there is nowhere to put it.

    Solution is to buy a 1005 with a micro sd slot and put a 16gb card in it. you can then load some maps on the card and it frees up valuable space on the device for bigger updates.

    live services work ok and I like the auto download of safety cameras.

    The 'My Tom Tom' application is useless and not a patch on 'Tom Tom Home'.
    Should be updated to match the flexibility of TT Home.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Dissapointed with the Go Live 1000 13 May 2011
    By Wookie
    Model:GO LIVE 1000 Europe
    I bought this Tomtom and for a week it work great. Then I did the updates on it and lost all the speed camera data.
    Spoke to Tomtom support and they were aware of the problem, but as to date have no fix for it. My advice is if you buy any of the Tomtom Live series, is not to do any updates till the software problems have been resolved. Its now been a month and I'm still waiting for a software fix. Its worth reading the Tomtom forum if you're thinking of buying one,that will help you reach a decision.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Another nail 15 Nov 2010
    Model:GO LIVE 1000 Europe
    Still requires updates to produce functionality available on 910

    However, the interface has improved a bit. And the traffic is better displayed. I would not have upgraded if my previous TomTom 910 hadn't died.

    New browser based access from PC is far worse than the old TomTom Home. In fact it is non existent.

    To my surprise there are several features that do not work yet on the Go Live 1000

    When you finally get it to work the browser proudly tells you
    ! MyTomTom is the easiest way to keep your TomTom device up to date. MyTomTom offers you:
    ! * Latest Map Guarantee: if a newer map becomes available for your device within 90 days of first use, you can download a free map here.
    ! * Free software updates: you know you have the best navigation possible
    !Coming soon:
    ! * Map Update Service, Speed camera locations, Funny voices, Personalised POI's, Map Share changes and much more.
    ! New content and capabilities are being added all the time - Visit MyTomTom often, so you can see the latest. When you register, we will keep you updated on any new upgrades and how they help you.

    Note the coming soon! I have been waiting months.

    Another location says
    !Updating fixed speed cameras is currently not possible in MyTomTom for the following navigation devices:
    ! GO LIVE 1000, GO 1000, Via 110, Via 120, Via 125
    ! We are working hard to offer this as soon as possible.

    !Downloading and installing maps
    !Buying new maps is currently not possible for the following navigation devices:
    !GO LIVE 1000, GO 1000, Via 110, Via 120, Via 125
    !We are working hard to offer this as soon as possible.

    I think this is miss-selling
