The great GO 520 but with a rather useless RDS reciever.,
This review is from: TomTom Go 520 Satellite Navigation System - Traffic Edition (Electronics)
This is just the GO 520 with an RDS receiver, the RDS signal is generally not strong enough to be of much use, as far as free traffic updates for life this is not technically true as RDS is free once you have the receiver/ariel it is not a subscription based system. The unit is self is just the same GO 520.
This new design has all of the great feature you expect from TomTom but coupled with a more usable mounting system and a great widescreen display. Both myself and my wife spent a large amount of time investigating the various models on the market and found the features and ease of use of the TomTom Go 520/720 were clearly the best available. Coupled with the iPod cable I can now use both my TomTom and iPod through my car radio and not have difficulty hearing instructions over the music. On the downside my Mobile phone, an orange SPV3100, does not want to work with the hands free option provided; this is a bit of a disappointment to an otherwise perfect solution.
