5.0 out of 5 stars Sat Nav TomTom 6000, 11 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: TomTom GO 6000 6-inch Sat Nav with European Maps and Lifetime Map and Traffic Updates - Black (Electronics)
If you are considering buying a Tom Tom sat nav this one is OK, it does have a larger screen but first consider the TomTom 1005 which has far more facilities, the 6000 is very basic compared to the 1005.
I bought the 6000 because of the lager screen, but it doesn't automatically divert you 'round traffic jams connect to your mobile to make phone calls, it is also not so easy to plan stop off's on your journey.
To be honest I would/should have kept my 1005 and might even sell this and get another 1005.
The only plus on the 6000 is lifetime maps which you pay for on the 1005!
Tom Tom have now updated the software for the 6000 and now the 6000 is worth every penny!

Hello again M. Reed, I wanted to share latest update for our GO devices with you.
UPDATE 13.030

I am happy to announce that as of today, the latest Navcore Version 13.030 will be offered for download in MyDrive.

This update comes with the following changes:

* My Routes
We have added My Routes to the GO. You can use My Routes to save, retrieve, edit and delete routes, including itineraries with multiple stops.

* Reorder stops (itinerary planning)
When you have planned a route with multiple stops, you can now adjust the order of the stops.

* Drive to a route
When you have planned a route from a starting point that is not your current location, you can now drive to the start of that route. SelectDrive via here, to plan a route from your current location to the starting point of the route, and start following the route.

* Navigate to latitude longitude coordinates
In the search box, you can now enter a specific set of latitude longitude coordinates.

* Warning sounds when speeding
You can now both see a visual warning and hear a warning sound when speeding.

0-5 km/h too fast: the speed panel turns orange.
> 5 km/h too fast: the speed panel turns red.

Now you can also choose to hear a warning sound when speeding:

> 5 km/h too fast: you hear three beeps.

The warning sound can be turned on and off in the Main Menu.

* Time-dependent speed limits
We now offer time-dependent speed limits in the following European countries: Germany, Poland, Sweden and the Netherlands (requires map version 9.20 or higher, which will be released in the near future).

If you are driving in these countries, the speed limit in the speed panel changes depending on the time of day.

Other bug fixes and improvements

* Improved route re-calculation
We have optimised the re-calculation of routes
