TomTom GO LIVE Camper & Caravan review

This is a product review that will be in more than one part.

The first covers setup and finding your way around the device and any following reviews will cover the device in long term use.

Features: Maps for 45 European countries, Lifetime Maps, 5in widescreen, LIVE services including HD Traffic, camping and motorhome Points of Interest (POIs), routing includes restrictions for oversized vehicles

All of which mean that you should no longer negotiate too narrow and unsuitable roads, low bridges, weight limits and the like - we’ve all been there at some time!

Current price: (July 2015) Around £330

Be sure to read Page 2 of this review that covers the unit in actual day-to-day use.

 

Installation

Well, this is almost quicker than saying the word 'installation'.

Just unpack, attach to windscreen/dash holder and plug in! If the unit doesn't come to life automatically there is a discreet on/off switch on its top left corner.

Finding your way around it

Setting the device for your vehicle is easy, you just need to know your vehicle dimensions and weights etc and enter them where required.

Having used TomTom satnavs for about 10 years this unit felt very familiar from the start. The 5” touch screen is very easy and logical to use and gives a very comprehensive display of driving information. There are the usual options to choose types of routes (exclude/include toll roads etc) and destinations by address, postcode, GPS in any format as well as incorporating waypoints along the way.

Where this model is different from the other TomTom devices (and where the extra cost comes in) is that ability to select specific vehicle requirements for size and weight.

As tested this satnav is loaded with the latest mapping and a couple of sets of POIs for stopovers.

First impressions

Feels like a quality built product and user friendly so, I like it!
