I don't think Tomtom have maps of China. I have found a link to available maps though.

Thanks very much for the posting. Your first post and my first purchase through Hot Deals. Brilliant
Cheers

Almost worth having a TomTom just for the 'add roadblock' feature.

Couldn't stand the sloppy 'directions' on the TomTom I tried out so took it back but hot for the price.

Do you have any affiliation with Tesço or TomTom? If not then you are doing nothing wrong! I think your not aloud to post a deal if you work for the company you post it for!.

Yeah I had an 8 year old TomTom that I updated the maps on recently and now find the routes it picks to be ridiculous.

However always up for a bargain, anyone know if this comes with lifetime traffic?

Ignore my traffic question, just seen it does on Trescothick website.

Speed Camera's what?

Can you elaborate? Serious question. I just updated my Go 730 which has been excellent over the years. Bought into map updates about a year ago and it's been good, but just updated the map again a week or so back.

I use a Garmin at work and have done for a few years. It's only a sub 100 device, and it's UK only using it to get me to peoples homes so lots of side streets, and I am often disappointed as it doesn't know some one ways and dead ends.

good deal especially with the cashback, had some left over tesco vouchers which also qualify for clubcard boost so even better deal. thanks

I have to agree, I have the 1005 and the 510, and some of the routes my 510 take are shocking. I even had to stop and buy a road altas once. The 510 is ok , just have a idea where you're heading. The live traffic is great, but you need to link it to your phone and use your phone's data connection,oh and the OS is a bit werid, but not as good as the 1005 which has its own data connection for the live traffic.

To get the £30 cashback you have to give your bank account information (sort code and account no) directly to TomTom..

​I can't really provide any hard facts unfortunately. It was an old TomTom 520 unit and even though the maps were old, I was always happy and confident with the route choices. Since upgrading the maps with a one off offer about 6 months ago, I find that I have to double check the route and sometimes have to make it travel via a place to make it choose the more logical route. I guess something has changed either in the mapping algorithm or speeds associated with different road types but I don't really like the choices it offers any more. I had the same problem with a Garmin I had for a short time and then returned die to poor route choices and just put it down to the mapping data provider being used by Garmin but now see the same problems with modern TomTom maps.

would the TomTom GO 5000 5inch Sat Nav with Lifetime European Maps & Lifetime Traffic updates for 149 be a better bet ?

with 30 cash back too I think .. although anyone have opinions on having to give bank details ?

if your having trouble with the old eyes this might be a better option lol

Quidco, Clubcard boost and £30 back hopefully - cheers for the post, finally have a sat nav!

Great find. Despite the fact I've only just bought the Go600 I've purchased this for the other car. Anyone know where you can go for gadg addiction counselling :-)

Good find but don't actually NEED. For next USA hol got 'Here' free offline satnav app on phone, basic but will do.
If I plan any really epic trips I'll look out for this very model though. Heated.
- Is the 'lifetime' stuff transferable I wonder, so if you buy one on Ebay...
- Dumbed down features I've heard - but is the speed dependant volume control and auto night dimming still on the 51x range?

Ordered the TomTom GO 5000, but cheers to OP for the 20 quid off and cashback.

I don't work for TomTom or Tesco, I have been looking for a satnav for a while and this seemed like a good deal. I have viewed this site for months but I've only joined now as I found a deal worth posting.

It would, because you also get 30 quid cashback, and the 5000 series has a built in SIM card so it has an always-on connection to the internet in all countries of the world(TomTom has signed some deal with carriers,so wherever you go it automatically connects to the internet without you paying any extra). I have the TomTom 5000 sat nav and swear by it, I've driven through Europe several times using it and it's just amazing at warning you about traffic jams and accidents, re-routing you automatically. Or even for driving around Newcastle, in the rush hour it allows you to avoid traffic as well. Of course, the 510 does this as well,but it connects to your phone via bluetooth for the internet, so it uses your internet plan. And it won't work abroad unless you pay for roaming. Other than that, it's the same device.

sound like my experience with my TGedition 825, bought map update (it was supposed to come with free updates for life, hahaha) but it didn't work however the software update that came with it, did install, and now i get silly routes sometimes/moretimes. Could it be a cockup by tomtom or deliberate policy to make you buy another update or replacement ? me wonders!

Don't think that model includes speed camera updates..

It does, for the first 3 months. Then it's 20 quid/year. Still worth it if you consider that you are getting lifetime free access to the internet for traffic updates.

Not if you only you have a simple PAYG phone like me it doesn't ! (No monthly usage allowance.)

Thanks OP. Put off 510 but interested in the 5000 model - unfortunately the 5000 is only supplied with Europe maps and I need to get nav specifically for USA visit. Tomtom want £34.95 for USA map download. Does anyone know of a 5000 deal with whole world maps or alternatively recommend a nav for US visit, any brand upto £200 max? thanks for any help
