Unbelievable people still pay this sort of money for this
I wouldn’t recommend buying this unless you plan to use it very regularly. I have the Go 6000. Have had it for a number of years. For the last three or four years I only need to use it for one or two trips. Unfortunately, TomTom tend to cancel customer SIM accounts that haven’t been active for a while. I suspect to save themselves a little money. The first few times my real-time traffic update, etc. stopped working TomTom were kind enough to reactivate the account. The last time it stopped they flat out denied everything and simply offered to look at my device for a fee.

I just use it now as an old style SATNAV. Needless to say. I’ll never buy another TomTom device again.
Why on earth folks buy a SatNav these days is beyond me All the stuff they mention you get just by having your Phone in a handsfree holder ideally placed horizontally on your dashboard.
You buy this if you don't have a smartphone. Want a neater solution my mobile leans to one side as it's so large.like seperate devices for separate things. Buy the used very good models for a good price. Like a nice bright display.

Might be because if you're not careful you can get done for using mobile while driving. A dedicated satnav may have different rules apply. Maybe someone can clarify.

My sim stopped working and was repaired twice for free, first time when it was 8 months old, has stopped for 3 rd time and they want £90 to fix it, avoid at all costs

If only they would build in a decent dash cam & a Dab radio. Then they would have a product!

Which app apart from waze do you use for a sat nav on your phone. I've found them unreliable and tend to crash. Luckily not my car, just the saved journey.

it's actually legal to use your phone as a sat nav, as long as it has secure, hands-free access and it does not block your view of the road or traffic ahead. ... It is illegal to touch and hold your phone while driving, when stopped at traffic lights, when queuing in traffic.

It used to blip a lot on my phone and actually just totally crash while I was moving, and I would have to pull over and set it up again multiple times. I had better results with Waze. I hoped getting a dedicated gadget for the job would mean working perfectly each and every time. I am dismayed to read that the SIM card can need servicing or that if you don't use the device enough, Tom tom deactivates the account. Deplorable behaviour!
If you want to save some money but still get a sat nav without always have a data connection check out herewego (mobile phone app) (world offline maps for free): Review:

How about this for a compromise. TomTom app on your smart phone. £15 for a year. I find it as good as these stand alone devices. Personally Tomtom is my satnav of choice as find the traffic spot on and routes. Hear added as a good deal if you want the standalone device.

If you use the app only periodically will Tomtom cancel your phone account like it does for the device users?

I went to using my smartphone for GPS last year. Had to buy a mount and car charger. Tiny bit of faff putting smartphone in mount each time I get in the car and loading the right app. Can't use Google Maps or Waze because I drive all over the county and most of the county doesn't have data signal. So have to use Here Maps - no usable traffic info. Even when I can use Waze or Google Maps for nav on the rare occasions where I have signal for the full journey, their traffic info is still not anywhere near as good as TomToms.

So, then I got the TomTom app for the smartphone at £15/yr - happy days, I thought. This is like a proper satnav!

Except - I play my music off my phone by bluetooth. So every time I go to change the tune, I have to back out of the satnav app. Then - using the phone as a satnav all the time cooked the phone's battery. So then I had to buy a new phone.

Long story short - I bought a standalone TomTom. Sooo much better - I get in the car, no faffing with phone, no damage to phone battery, satnav app is already loaded and ready to go, single tap to load the route I want, no faffing when I want to change the music on my phone because it's a separate device, no annual fee for decent traffic info.

Maybe folks on here don’t have data plans that cover the countries this Sat nav unit covers. I wouldn’t want to use my mobile phone when driving around in Europe so I’d be in the market for one as my one is quite outdated now.
Another vote for a phone. I use Waze absolutely all of the time, with very little in the way of issues. Certainly fewer issues than with my expensive (comparatively), poor and almost immediately unsupportable TomTom one BITD.

Does WAZE provide voice directions?
Yep, although I have them turned off.

So I can drive using WAZE & it will give me voice commands as to where to go? Just like tomtom?
After getting one stolen, you can pick these up from CEX for £105-155 depending on the grade, much more worth it now they offer a 2 year guarantee

Sorry maybe I'm wrong.. Still you can download the offline map for Google and still give you the directions. I have done it with my old phone which doesn't have a sim. May be this will works for you for the areas you don't get signal.

Sure, you could do that. But then I'd have to go and find a WiFi network every time before I went to a new destination, to download the map. I can do maybe 6 new destinations in a day and I don't know ahead of time what they are going to be. You can only download the map on Google maps for the specific route, you can't download an offline map for the whole country.
I think these are great for frequent travelers (especially because it includes Europe).

Big screen, loud speaker, etc

Sure, if you only have one long trip a year use a phone, for people on the road every day/week definately recommended
