Winner: TomTom Go 1005 LIVE

TomTom is the daddy of SatNav devices and has built on its rich legacy with the latest of its Go LIVE devices. With a 5in screen the Go 1005 LIVE offers all the usual TomTom features including the excellent HD Traffic system to make sure you avoid any traffic jams or road works. With a magnetic mount and fast route calculation, the TomTom Go 1005 LIVE offers drivers all the features they would want and is a worthy winner of the Best St Nav Award for 2011.

I have this device and, on the whole, I am satisfied with the performance and ease of use. I do not need or require any bells and whistles (eg Twitter etc) but the Google search facility is brilliant. TomTom beats all other nav devices into cocked hats.

However -

The live traffic facility is dubious in its ability to predict delays and is only as good as the data input from various sources. This data is clearly questionable at times.

On a regular run from the SW of France to the NW this device claims that there are 2 (sometimes 3) fixed speed (sorry safety) cameras. Believe me, there a many, many more.

NB. These comments apply to use in France.
