Last time this went hot for £79 as well at Halfods. So probably means this is not a bad price for a tomtom with free lifetime map updats. ALSO tesco is doing £20 off when spending £100 on Technology and Home Electrical, so this means you can enjoy an free item worth £21!

I ordered the Tomtom along with a Sony RDPM7IPNB Speakerdock for iPhone 5/5s/6/6 Plus. The speaker sells £29 at tesco which I think is not a bad price already. Link: tesco.com/dir…146

So I spend £88 to get a Tomtom XL and a Sony RDPM7IPNB speaker along with TCB and clubcard points.

The clubcard boost also works for this tomtom

use eCoupon code TDX-PKJK to get Save £20 when you spend £100 or more on selected Technology and Home Electrical

nice find OP.

If the £20 off is working - you could get this one:
tesco.com/dir…440

for slightly more as you don't need to buy something else to top up to 100...? Just a thought.

Get Waze instead

Yeah. Really no need for dedicated sat nav anymore.

I bought a Nokia Lumia 625 which has a 4.7" screen for £79.95 + £10 top up from carphone warehouse, installed the map of the UK and use it for navigation with no sim card required and if i need data, i can tether it off my Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and it also serves as a spare phone, sorted!

This is a good deal considering how expensive TomTom used to be.
However, google maps and Waze to an extent have live traffic information. Waze will also reroute you if there are problems on your route.
The only problem I have found with the 2 is that when you lose network on your phone the nav stops working. Luckily for me I have nav in my car which then helps.
As soon as google maps / Waze (same company now) is included in cars as standard it will be perfect. Until then its not 100%.

Battery is shocking on my TT XL, barely an hour and a half before needs charging again. Still better than phone app though IMO.

Agree, google maps is great as you get a overview of the traffic. But there have been times when I have been stuck with no reception and not been able to start a route.

Nokia maps called ("here"now) is the way to go.
Offline maps, excellent clear instructions, live travel information if connected to internet.
Instructions appear in status bar when you leave map screen (excellent for multi-tasking)
It's free.
Available on android now too.

I've been using Google map without problems as well. HOWEVER when you need sat nav a lot especially when long driving travelling to places like Lake District or Scotland high land, mobile signal and data usage become issues. So I bough tomtom

This is a good deal op. thanks.
If it helps anyone it is also same price at Halfords click and collect service with a pricematch within 7 days, here with Halfords also offering a money off deal for higher spend

Great deal on a sat nav, especially if it comes with free map updates.

As great as Google maps is, when you don't have decent reception or signal drops you're left in the dark. I'll always use apps or devices where the signal doesn't matter too much.

Yep
After trying many phone satnavs, nothing beats tomtom , nothing !
Brothers Nokia got us lost in Cornwall several times, tried a few free maps on iphone and android and when they work they are great but when they don't then you want to smash the phone in two.
Either tomtom app or a standalone is the only way to go.
Also have a standalone garmin I bought cheap and it's no tomtom.

Google maps is good for short drives, on long journeys I always opt for the Tom Tom. Once you use the Tom Tom you'll realise how much better it is

Generally very happy I'm about switch from Google map to tomtom

What does the TomTom Go offer differently to the XL (apart from a larger screen)?

I just use mine for making phone calls and texting. I have a £7.50 per month rolling one month contract with Tesco. I don't need anything else........ I think.Do I ?oOGenuine question. Some peeps will think I'm being me, but for once, I am really interested in an answer.Update..... Being me.


If you mean the same thing as buying a TomTom at a similar price, it's Yes and No.
Yes the NoKia Lumia 625 does the same thing at a one off similar cost. BUT it will also serve as a spare phone, whereas the TomTom is only a navigation device.

tesco.com/dir…min

I have bought above during black friday, when it was £69.99. Are you you sure it is not the same quality with Tomtom? I need EU maps and I prefer standalone navigation device as I believe the phone apps are not as good as them.

does this have traffic?

Not sure but it's got a IQ routes function which I presume for looking for better route based on traffic information

Not really, it just routes you via the typically quickest route based on average traffic and driving speeds for the time of day, nothing to do with the ACTUAL traffic

Even if they do why would anyone "really" care!
The answer to your question is yes, and if you don't happen to have a tom-tom then they rely on the tracking chips they implanted in our craniums from birth.

This is the tom-tom xl old model, also Tesco are selling the tom-tom start 25. 25" for £113 ....when the average is much less see below

I care because I'm the consumer. I pay them for the device, not to profit from selling my data. I have nothing to hide. But I also think I'm entitled to something called privacy.

Does it really matter' why would you care how they profit consumer or not, surly this is more of a paranoia if people are concerning about this before buying goods. And you're only entitled to privacy to a certain degree and thats for you yours and others welfare,
