Just got my go 540 live from Dixons on-line for 𧶮.76 including vat and delivery. I used a promotional code (vat3) and got 3% discount first road test was very good.
What is the difference between the 540 740 and 940, I cannot find a single website that gives a comparison on features? Looking at the 740 at the moment but not sure how often I would use the Europe maps with the Euro as it is at the moment.
The only real difference between the 540 and 740 is the latter has European maps. The 940 has North American (inclucing Canadian) maps too, plus a remote control. That is pretty much it.
Can I ask where is it stated that this can also receive RDS TMC traffic - I can't find this mentioned in any of the official specs?
i have just got the 540 go live i must say not impressed with it its hard to use takes me a long way round to find addresses i had a cheap sat nav before and i must say it was better than this as for the blue tooth it wont stay connected my opinion its a load of junk so get a cheap sat nav not a tom tom unless you are a layer to try and understand how to work it i asked tom tom for support about 11 days as yet not heard a thing back from them
@phil5743 The LIVE system doesn't receive RDS-TMC traffic directly - there is no FM receiver. The information is collated with the HD Traffic mobile phone data and delivered over the mobile data link.@james easdon Each to their own. TomTom's interface is not the absolute best. IMHO Garmin is the easiest to use. But I'd hardly call it junk. Address entry has never given me any problems.
