isn't this pointless when you have Google Maps and Waze?


Google and Waze don't do truck/coach. It does make a big difference when trying to navigate a truck through restrictions.
Lifetime map.... Yeah right, until next year in which they will say "oh no, we cant provide maps for your device, here is 3% off our top model"

Looks good. Mine hopefully has a couple of years left but I like the idea of updating without plugging into a laptop and voice control.
Good price. Paid well over 250 for mine but it has been worth it for coach driving in Europe too

Do waze and Google maps alert you to height restrictions, give you appropriate eta times based on your vehicle's max speed etc?

I'm looking for an android app with the above features to set up for my mother's motorhome, these look fantastic, but for how much she would use it, it would be overkill.

I used to buy a New TomTom every 18 months. But the lifetime maps was worthless, because the device quickly became obsolete. I use Waze now - simple, accurate, free

Need these devices are dying out I can see some uses for trucks but when you say life times maps it's just that lifetime wouldn't buy off the company again for the average user maps and Waze are free and work great

Try driving a truck in the UK these days without one of these, they're very good for height and width restriction warnings and other truck specific stuff.

I use google maps. Waze annoys me.

Waze has Android Auto integration, pops straight up on my dash. If you have an iPhone, it’s probably the best option these days, beats my Sat Nav hands down

I have an android. I agree both beat a satnav for up to date maps and traffic updates / rerouting
I was gonna ask about the relevance of these devices now we have Google Maps etc but the truck thing explains it. Still it's a small market for TomTom now. The 'Lifetime' map updates that are only lifetime of the device doesn't help their cause much either.

Amazing how many people here can’t read the title or take 30 seconds to figure out that Waze and Google Maps cant cut it against this particular product.
I'm surprised these things still exist. I would have thought by now Tomtom would have moved over completely to phones and tablets or even that google maps would have a mode that killed the paid ones off, but I suppose there's still a need for this a motorcycle ones.

They can't help themselves - they see "sat nav" and have to jump in to tell people they're pointless.

Dedicated sat navs are slighlty better than GM & Waze but TomTom and Garmin massively overprice them in this shrinking market. Only a matter of time before they integrate the truck and coach stuff into phone apps too, I'd imagine.

I can't see people going with the Tomtom app if it's a monthly subscription - I went on their website and if I got things right, they now charge a monthly fee to get the full set of features.

Yeah I think we would have paid for it back in the day when good options were limited but now not so much. I always get the feeling that company's don't want to create the product that kills off another one of their products but better they do it than a competitor. Anyway that being said I think people would pay a subscription for the truck, coach or motorcycle one.
Is this an older slower version of the 6200 ?
