TomTom GO Live 1000 review

 

Is TomTom's new high-end sat nav good enough to lead the line?

Great LIVE services ; Great touchscreen ; Decent value

Sticky menu system ; Bulky unit

The sat nav market is becoming a very crowded place, and the quality of hardware has rocketed in the last year.

TomTom GO Live 1000 review

 

TomTom is well known for the simplicity of its GPS devices, and the GO 1000 continues this tradition. It features just a single power button in the top-left corner as the only physical control; this doubles as an indicator light when the unit is...

The TomTom GO Live 1000 is one of the best-equipped GPS navigation devices on the market, making it ideal for those who use a sat nav every day. Less frequent users will get better value out of cheaper units, but the GO 1000 is slick, functional and...

TomTom Go 1000 Live review

 

It's been a while since we saw a fresh design from TomTom, with the Go x30, x40 and x50 series all sharing essentially the same case. The new Go 1000 Live may not look hugely different, but there are quite a few changes and improvements.

It isn't cheap, but this is a superb navigator that will get you to your destination as fast as possible.

TomTom GO 1000 LIVE

 

TomTom raises the bar once more on sat-nav technology

Improved menu system ; Fast route calculation ; Live traffic ; updates

Expensive ; Live traffic incurs an ongoing cost

As with its TomTom LIVE predecessors, the GO 1000 is not a cheap sat-nav and despite its abilities, if you're only an occasional traveller it will be overkill. For those in this category, a more modest option would make better economic sense. But for...

TomTom Go Live 1000

 

Pared down and powered up, TomTom's latest Go Live 1000 shuns the often frivolous features of other sat-navs and concentrates on navigation essentials.

Brian Blessed is the latest to add his immortal tones to the TomTom catalogue, so don't be too surprised if you find yourself ordered to dive while flying blind on a rocket cycle next time you're en route to Basingstoke.

TomTom Go Live 1000 review

 

TomTom's new flagship is super-responsive and brings the potential for third-party apps. Is it the world's best sat-nav?

Impressively fast and the Webkit for third-party apps could see things get really interesting

Review: TomTom GO LIVE 1000 £199

 

Turn10 studios really laid down the gauntlet with Forza Motorsport 3, a deep, accomplished racer that was as realistic as it was fun. Can this year's sequel, Forza Motorsport 4 go one better and overtake Gran Turismo 5 to take pole position? Read on to...

While not every addition in Forza Motorpsort 4 is a must have one, none of them are awful, nor detract from the absolutely stunning race action on offer here. You could argue that more brand new content could have been thrown in to appeal to returning...
