  iqs 16:15 07 Aug 2009


I'm after a Tom Tom Sat Nav.It must have safety camera warnings and updates,and also with traffic master.Will be mainly used in the UK
I have seen various modals available,but none include the traffic master.

Can you recommend a model please?.

Thank you

The money is made by selling you the extras.

Map updates, Camera Updates, Heavy Traffic Warning Service. It seems that £20pa to £25pa seems about par for the course.

Does it have to be a Tom Tom? I'm sure there are other makes that will do the thing wee eddie mentioned for free, don't quote me on that though.

Tom Tom and PocketGPSworld both have a speed camera database it cost's about £20 for a year.
Not sure which one is the most accurate though

By Traffic Master, do you mean one that will report live traffic conditions?.

If so, there is a subscription service from Tom called, HD Traffic.

As I recall, Traffic Master is a also paid for service, and not cheap. I am sure that no SatNav exists fitted with the original Traffic Master.

As Newuser2 said, a speed camera data base is available from both TomTom & PocketGPSworld. I use the TomTom version, but many say the PocketGPSworld is better.

Hi and thank you for the comments.

I would sooner buy a Tom Tom sat nav,just because I have used them so many times,and the find the software so easy to use.

Having access to the safety camera updates is more of a priority then traffic master or HD Traffic.

So its just a case of which model of Tom Tom.

Thank you all for your help.

Do you want just UK and Ireland maps, or UK plus European mapping?. If you consider driving on the continent sometime, you will need the latter.

Just bought the Go 540 Live model.

Am very pleased with it. It comes with 3 months trial of Live Services, which work very well. I won't subscribe personally as I don't need it, but have enjoyed using it.

I have this model with the Live Services, as it was on offer and only a couple of quid more then the other the cheaper range without live Services.

The TomTom website has an excellent feature to help you choose the model for you.
