Speed Camera Database. I subscribed to the speed camera database, which will be the same for the whole range of tomtom's but sadly this is not as up to date as my "out of date" as my old Road Angel Classic, which I was hoping to abandon but I now have to rely on both.
Display screen good and exit lane info very helpful.
Update April 2014
Having succeeded in linking to my PC without problems, (no doubt my fault not that of the TomTom) I am updating the stars to 5, this does everything I need it to do.
It replaced a 2 year old Garmin which was getting increasingly confused and I wasn't willing to shell out a lot of money on a sat nav which liked to use road names instead of numbers. The Tom Tom is much better in that respect although reading out "A four thousand three hundred and sixty one" takes more time and is less comprehensible than "A four three six one".
I've docked a star because there seems to be a battery self discharge problem - it will drain itself if left unused but turned off for a month, which is neither good for the battery or convenient for the user.
TomTom are meant to be the best in the satNav field, so why am I only giving this three stars? (and I was actually debating about giving it only two stars)
Well, the mapping is good, easy to follow and produces usable routes, which the Garmin was hopeless at. It also allows multi input of 'Way Points'. This allows you to alter a route to suit your needs by inputting points that you want to vist along the route. The Garmin failed on that as it only allowed one way point per route planned. (Believe me, on a long journey, or perhaps if you are wanting to visit a couple of places off of the SatNav route, multi way points are a must - unless of course you actually enjoy frequently reprogramming your SatNav.)
Sadly the much hyped Junction view is sporadic, on a trip along the M4 in Wales it showed junction view for only about half of the junctions. Not really a problem but it would be nice to be able to rely on this featute for every junction so that when you do go into a complicated interchange you can be sure it will lead you through it with the junction views.
Also, I am now back to the voice instructions of the Binatone, telling me to turn right or left, not for a juncyion but for SOME bends in the road. I've put 'some' in bold as that is important. If it did it all the time, you could learn to ignore it but as it's sporadic when it does tell you to turn, you automatically look for a junction.Read more ›
I have used it on about 5 occasions, so it has cost over £20 per outing,
I will never buy another TomTom product.
Right from the beginning it was slow, and refused to update the maps., the email from TomTom mentioned below never materialised.
Mar-2015: Amazon has now provided me with a total of 3 of these units, as each one in turn took over 5 minutes to acquire GPS signals. I have now contacted TomTom UK. Apparently I should have connected the unit to my computer as it requires frequent updates to refresh the satellite positions which are constantly changing - a unique interpretation of geo-stationary. I am awaiting an email from TomTom with further information.

A splendidly annoying piece of kit. A mere £125 cranks your blood pressure up 20% minimum guaranteed. You just don't get value like that these days. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Steve R
