Good price

has this lifetime map updates?

hot and ordered thanks

nope the lifetime map ones are around £50 more

For those of you reading the other posts 2 months ago, the cold voting was due to this device not fitting Europe onto it's internal memory.
To resolve this, TomTom release a slightly lower complexity Western Europe map that still fits on this device.
The Western Europe 930.5605 map is 1.72GB in size and has some textures removed so that visuals such as forests and meadows do not appear therefore saving enough space to allow for the entire map to fit on this device.
There are less house numbers and city buildings also which contribute to saving 200MB in map size.
So if you buy this excellent TomTom, you will still be able to fit all of Western Europe or all or North America on this.
If you require additional countries, then a good fit is Central Europe which adds countries from France across to Poland.
I have this TomTom with the UK and Central Europe on making it a really happy medium. I often drive to Poland so I just switch maps on Le Shuttle and then I'm ready to roll in France.

Yeah same here.

I prefer to use my smartphone as sat nav. Better screen quality, updated maps etc.

A standalone Sat Nav needs lifetime maps, there's massive competition from smartphones now. Although I don't find them that reliable yet. I use Google Maps (offline, have to save an area, it's a pain), Mapfactor Navigator and NavMan. All these offer downloadable free maps and you can choose to buy TomTom maps for Mapfactor. Sometimes they'll crash or not find any places though depending on the app, and usually when you need it the most. A standalone Sat Nav I find is more reliable. I haven't tried IOS/WP8 but I imagine Nokia Maps are pretty reliable on WP8 platform.

I'd recommend Mapfactor Navigator and CamSam Plus on Android, CamSam Plus you have to pay for but it gives decent safety camera warnings and only the Pro version is capable of floating on top of another app.

Anyway don't let this confuse you in to thinking I'm knocking standalone Sat Navs, if you're using a Sat Nav a lot then I'd go standalone everytime.

Finally you speak sense

Turn left, turn right, go forward, click hot, turn right. You have reached your destination! (the beach in Chanchi's profile pic).

Alternatively turn right, turn left, head straight on. We have lost your destination!

Sorry couldn't help myself. Voted hot anyway as its good at that price.

is this one better for an extra £10?

tesco.com/dir…908

Does it come with lifetime free map updates and speed camera alerts ??

can you upgrade to lifetime maps at all?

I have Sygic which I would certainly recommend. *Never* crashes and finds everything a TT does.
And, having said that, I still prefer a standalone device :-) They do what they do very well. Using a smartphone to do sat nav as well as calls & texts is just asking a bit much.
I have the ideal - both. That way, if one runs out of battery, or I'm missing the 'right' cable, or one has problems finding satellites or . . . whatever, I have a backup.

This says lifetime maps, has voice control, 5" screen. Admittedly exDisplay but £75.

Warning - if you live in London this unit may be too slow to compute the route on the fly - you have been warned.

Or you can buy a brand new device in three years time for a price comparable to the price of lifetime maps, sell your old one on eBay and have a brand new sat nav for less than the price of lifetime maps.

That's what I do. But I sell mine every year in mint condition & each time get more for it than I paid for!!

Is there a way to get a further discount on this being a first time customer of Tesco, or is that only on groceries?

Standalone satnavs are pretty much obsolete smartphones more convenient.

Fishmaster the code in the Op gives a £10 discount, you can't use a grocery code on top.

If you work for Tesco I believe there is a double staff discount this week. Ta

Thanks for your reply. I won't be taking up a position at Tesco anytime soon I hope so no extra discount for me

Nothing like a good old fashioned map book....No Battery Failure....No Can't Find Satellites...No Can't Find The Right Lead...No Little Oik Smashing Your Window To Nick It...And No Annoying " Jane " ....

Nice find

bought one, thanks for posting!

Where did you get your Sygic from?

Where did you get your Sygic from?



I used to get it from an 'alternative' market, but then a friend bought me a licence for Christmas. Just search for 'Sygic' in the Play store.

Genuine question, but why do people buy these and then pay out of the @rse for other maps/updates? Why not just use Google Maps/Navigation? I use it all the time, it's perfectly adequate and free!

play.google.com/sto…_GB

It's currently on 40% off sale.

Sygic starts to get expensive fast though once you add safety camera updates/traffic updates. Part of the reason I put up with using a smartphone I get the same functionality at a reduced reliability for free

Yes, great idea and really convenient too!

Ordered to replace my eight year old tomtom!

I like how they describe this as "XXL" when it's 5". I think you'll find 6" is the big one - or presumably XXXL. But I've seen the 6" one and that's just TOO big. Best option is to use the special holographic projection inside the glass to cover the entire windscreen. That way no need to worry about battery life.

Genuine question, why do some people come into a thread and ask a questsion which has already been answered by various posts already?
