Why would they use a resistive touch screen?
#3
Why would anybody bother with this when they already have a smartphone and can just download Google Maps and get (pretty dam' good - better than my £30 SatNav app) directions spoken from that?
#4
would recommend it. Heat added
#5
Seems like a reasonable deal, 10 years ago I'd say this would be smoking hot (with the free Map updates). What puts me off is if TomTom go out of business, because they are a bit behind the game with how easy it is to just download maps on Google Maps or Here Maps, and just use an unlocked phone with a local sim. Not voting either way.

PS, I do appreciate that in some countries (such as India, to name one from personal knowledge) you can't just walk into the nearest mobile shop and get a local payg sim.

The main reason is so you can have a matt screen so you can see it in the sunlight.

Also as its has point and hit interface captive screens are not really needed.

I bought the 5100 model (smaller screen) for the same price at Christmas. The live traffic is very good, very happy with my purchase.

Hope that works for you when there is no mobile network coverage.
If you actually travel a bit outside of major cities, you'll understand.

Google maps works with no network coverage. You can download offline maps over WiFi.

My only concern is what they might mean by 'lifetime'. I wonder if it is any more vulnerable to be discontinued because of the SIM card and whether one that updates via smartphone connection might be a better bet? Also, free map updates for life sounds good but I don't expect they will still be available in 10 years time like they are for my Go 920 because I have to pay for them so they still get income. I expect they will become disinterested in providing map updates for a device much earlier if they are giving them away.

Tom tom are cheeky. I have one that is about. 8 years old and they sent me an email to say they could no longer update my sat nav as it's too old and just won't have the capacity to update with the latest versions of maps. They've given me a silly voucher to deduct 20 % off a new tom tom which I would have to buy directly from them and is much more expensive than if I went to a competitor retailer. Surely I should be entitled to a free upgrade if they say 'lifetime' ?

I had similar with Garmin. The live traffic alerts/diversions stopped after a few years, but they didn't announce it.

I think lifetime is four years. Pants really considering the cost.

The 6100 has capacitive touch screen and is described super responsive in reviews I just looked at. Looks like a good price if you want a separate Sat Nav instead of using a smartphone.

They don't

I have this and its fantastic, the live traffic saves me hours not waiting in traffic jams and it is rarely wrong. This one also has free lifetime speed cameras.
#21
I'd rather not use my mobile as a sat nav.
used to think it was a good idea, not so much now.
prefer a separate unit again.

Google maps lol? Don't be silly.

What ARE you talking about?
GM got me all the way through France and Spain in the summer, No drops, up-to-date info. Clear verbal instructions. Easy menus, good UI.

I started using it after the expensive SatNav app I had bought turned out to be utterly useless (even though it was one of the top 5 recommended ones). And apart from driving through tunnels. there is practically nowhere that doesn't have good coverage: 3G at the very least. This isn't 1999 any more!

Slowly becoming true that, having been stuck living in south eastern Australia for 10 years and rather liking driving around less populated areas, I needed an offline GPS. Also hiking / walking around the uk needed an offline, very easy to loose. Yourself in more remote areas.admittedly that's walking and beyond the scope of a tomtom, however , it is a 'be aware' that 3G coverage is not ubiquitous
