The new user interface gives you a sharper view with richer colours, allowing you to identify maps and directions much more easily and quickly. The navigation view is more fluid, with clear and detailed lane guidance to help you navigate complicated junctions.
Help Me! Emergency Menu
You can find help with local emergency service information at your fingertips. From hospitals to roadside assistance, this information will be useful in any area.
Be Aware of Cameras Ahead
Your device receives real-time mobile speed camera locations, including reports from other users. It also warns you of other alerts, such as fixed speed cameras and average speed checks for the road ahead. It saves you money on speeding fines, helping you to drive safely and relaxed.
Use your device as an car-kit for your mobile phone. Now you can make and answer phone calls safely while driving, leaving you in control and in touch.

LIVE snapshot gives you all the relevant information in your surrounding area right from the start. You'll be able to see real-time information at a glance, including traffic conditions, safety cameras and more, making your drive more relaxed.
Advanced Lane Guidance
Drivers often feel stressed at unfamiliar junctions when there are a lot of lanes to choose from. Advanced lane guidance provides extra clarity to drivers in these circumstances, so they won't miss a turn or have to make a last-minute lane crossing. It works by giving them a still 3D image on the screen that clearly indicates the lane they need to take. So even at the most complex junctions and in the heaviest traffic, drivers can stay relaxed and in control.
You are ready to go with the richer maps, covering the whole UK and ROI with more graphical details. IQ Routes™ speed profiles give you the fastest route any time of day. And with rich POI data, such as phone numbers and opening times, you have even more information at your fingertips.

Tap into TomTom Places, search results designed for drivers. Helping you find anything from a local petrol station to a supermarket, wherever you are. Type in your search word, find matching locations and let your device take you there.
See information on nearby parking garages when you get close to your destination by default. When planning a route the VIA 120 UK & ROI will also ask if you want to find a parking spot near your destination.
Integrated Mounting with Flip Screen
A convenient foldaway mount that is integrated with your device, so it's always there when you need it. It attaches easily to your windscreen or, using the optional mounting disk, you can turn it upside down and position it on your dashboard, where the screen automatically flips the right way up.

No more waiting around - your route is calculated in a matter of seconds, so you get on your way much faster than ever before.
Save Time & Money
Drive smarter with the VIA 120 UK & ROI. Find up-to-date traffic information, the most economical routes, and plan the best routes for any time of day.
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.
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.
QuickGPSfix™ speeds up the time it takes to fix your GPS position to help you drive off more quickly.
Update your maps and plan your route - all from the comfort of your own home.
Map Share™ Technology
Our research reveals that roads change by as much as 15% every year. That's why we draw upon the largest satellite navigation community in the world – ours. 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. Through Map Share™, a driver can: block and unblock a street, reverse traffic direction, edit a street name, change turn restrictions, change road speed, add a missing Point of Interest (POI), edit a POI, and report another error.
Weather with LIVE Services
Your TomTom device receives local and five-day forecasts so you can make plans based on the latest weather.
Top customer reviews
I really like the live services, and there is one year free included with the device. You can do Google Local Search for details on local hotels and other services. There is also the HD traffic, which, living in a fairly rural part of Ireland, I have not been able to test.
The routes are OK, but sometimes the device offers an alternative route, which may be '2 minutes faster'. Well, in my experience, that is best ignored as it took me down some country roads I'd rather not travel. It also wanted to take me off the main road on foolish detours, and this was with IQ routes switched off. I've had dodgy routes with Garmin too, so it seems this is just part of the deal. Perhaps it is because I'm using in in Ireland.
Anyway, I am happy to recommend this device as an upgrade or for those looking to enter the world of satnavs.
Update: After using the device for over a month now, I can make some additional comments. I find the lack of a 'show map' button VERY annoying. Instead, you have to press the 'back' arrow maybe 3 or 4 times to get out of the sub-menus. That is a major annoyance and inconvenience. I also find that the device is now laggy and slow after updating it on the TomTom website. It used to be quite sharp and responsive; now it is lagging. You press the button and it doesn't register immediately, then you press it again but as you press it you hit a newly appeared button. ARRRGGG!!! These problems mean that I have now removed a star. It's 3 stars from me.
I tried everything (As did my local store) but the unit simply would not switch on. Eventually, I contacted TomTom Customer Services and told them how the I had obtained the unit and that it was "NOT" under guarantee. Their service was exceptional. Firstly, they sent me a small package containing a cardboard box which, when assembled, fitted my TomTom unit perfectly and would clearly protect the unit whilst in the post. Secondly, the package also contained a Royal Mail "Special Delivery" envelope complete with address and tracking number. Postage and insurance were already paid by TomTom.
Within 24 hours of my posting the unit back to TomTom I received an email confirming receipt and within 7 days I got another unit back. TomTom had REPLACED my unit free of charge with a brand new and exactly the same model and ALL under guarantee!
So for those of you who are contemplating purchasing a TomTom satellite navigation system, I thought you might like to know about this company's follow-up customer services system. They are quite excellent and I hope this message is useful.
Following the instructions, I connected it to my laptop, downloaded the software and set about updating. After a lengthy download (big file and slow broadband that day as I was working from home at the same time on another laptop) it completed updating and was ready to go. I programmed in my destination, fitted it in the car, off I went up the A1 and it perfomed faultlessly. All the LIVE services work as advertised and the text to speech for road names & other info is a vast improvement over my old XL device. I was initially worried that the built in suction cup would somehow be a disadvantage, but it's actually a convenience and folds flat against the device for storage.
All in all, I can recommend this device and and very pleased with the purchase.
The only thing I am not sure about, is that at the time of writing, I am not sure which hard case is suitable for this device as they all seem to be made for the older devices, so if anyone has bought a case that works well with the Live 120, please leave a comment and advise since I would find this really helpful.
