Thanks OP for posting and seems a good deal. I'm looking for cheapish Sat Nav and wanting to know if anyone has one of these/uses one (same model) and if so what's your opinion? Any help appreciated!

says £129.99

flatlander

says £129.99



Use the code PROMOGO550

Is there any way of getting USA maps on this? Am going to Florida so could come in very useful! Any help appreciated.

I bought a brand new one a few weeks ago at £99.99 from expansys from details on here
great piece of kit though well worth even £29

buy the 750 it should have USA on it otherwise it is a new map for the 550 at around £60

Good price,heat added!
As for TomTom- not my favourite anymore. Had a chance to compare tomtom and copilot(side by side in the UK,France,Germany,Poland and Lithuania) and copilot was miles ahed of tomtom. IQ routes on tomtom-rubbish;takes you more time and really not the best option to chose. Shame on TomTom,I have used it for past 4 years...

update 750 only has europe not USA sorry for bum info

It's the 950 with usa maps, or the older 940,930 etc

I have this and its superb. The Live traffic info (free for year - wonder whether it is on these refurbs) has been very accurate so far, reporting accidents and delays. Also great is the bluetooth connection to my HTC Desire, allowing handsfree operation of the phone (TomTom used to dial via imported phonebook).

Says that "Live" is free for a year.


One year FREE LIVE Services Europe

Drive LIVE across more than 30+ European countries*. In addition to the best, real-time traffic updates, you know where the mobile Speed Cameras are, you can find any locations via Local Search with Google™ and more. And it’s all free for a year. *services may vary.



It says 30+ European countries - Howzat when its UK/Ireland only ??

Anyone know how much "Live" service is after the free year?

Ouch.

Thanks...ordered....

Ouch.



Ouch to you, but it easily pays itself in petrol and hours if you do the mileage I do. Particularly in weather like today's.

Qidco track got £5.33

Good price! Pity, I just bought a Via Live 125 for £199.99 and the spec is not that much different than the GO 550 Live!

Just ordered one...Thanks...missed quidco though...

great deal-heat added

just say no to "LIVE" satnavs. in your second year, you'll pay more for these live services than you will had for the entire device in the first place.. hence the price.

i'm thrilled with my garming 1490 which has free 'lifetime traffic.' sure, it updates less frequently than 'live', but it's good enough for me.

Same here, looking for the best sat-nav under £100. Isn't this one better for additional 10 quid? -> amazon.co.uk/Gar…9AV Thx for any info.

damn UK maps only, shame, good price though !

Good deal, doesn't beat my deal tho - TomTom 950 with US maps for £90 brand new .... eBay of course

Great price! Thanks ordered, will need to sell my Western Europe XL now! Have some heat.

Hot - great device, that live traffic is superb. Ordered one for the wife (I already have one).

How up to date will the maps be?

Thanks OP, ordered for the misses birthday!

Ordered and heat added. Thx

Ive always find it better to stick on the main route and wait than take a detour onto A-roads and queue for half a hour to get through a set of lights. Wouldnt dream of paying £8 a month for it.

Ive ditched my old hacked up 710 for the iphone app. Much better and less nickable.

How does it mount? Does it come with the built in mount?

Tomtom normally give 30 days to update to the newest map but I don't think that applies to refurbished units..

Just ordered... Nice find... cheers OP

Can someone confirm this?

bought one, thanks - my tomtom go710 has become a little flakey after a lot of faithful service.

tee_tee

Can someone confirm this?


I've been searching Google for the answer to this and there does seem to be lots of threads mentioning TT refurbs with LMG. However they all seem to be from a few years ago. I'm sure I remember this being part of the refurb attraction but I reckon it's now long gone

I see they mention "Brand New" in relation to LMG

I bought one anyway.....See if it's as good as my Go 910..... Bet it's not

I'm after a XXL IQ Routes™ Europe Refurbished

found this on the TOMTOM forum posted 24-05-2011regarding the latest maps on refurbs

The refurbished devices do not come with the latest map and you can't use … The refurbished devices do not come with the latest map and you can't use Latest Map Guarantee (you cannot download the latest map for free) which is offered for the new devices. I guess that's one of the reasons they're cheaper. Anyway, the maps are not so out-of-date I believe.

link here also try Welcome123b in the voucher section for a further £8.00 off.
