The device in a nutshell

TomTom Go 600 is a state of the art satellite based navigation system equipped with a 6 inch capacitive touch screen. The most exciting feature is the new jam detection service called TomTom Traffic (old name – TomTom HD Traffic). The navigator comes preloaded with several maps including North America, Mexico, Europe and Australia. (Maps may vary as per place of sale). Free lifetime traffic and map updates is an added luxury but the some may find the price tag to be a bit too high.

If you are buying any TomTom navigator with the title “LIVE”, the new traffic services will automatically be available but the significant point about GO 600 is that it is the first one in this service for the company.

More About Go 600

The navigator offers Live services but there are some requirements here. You got to have a smartphone and that too with data connection. What happens next is that you covert the phone in a “hotspot” and basically connect the device to it for allowing seamless internet connection. Therefore, make sure that you have a great data plan that supports your needs.

Another important point is that the network via which you are connecting the device must allow the tethering function. The good thing we found is that traffic incidents were accurately described with causes and the approximate amount of delays they are likely to bring forward.

A warning though!

Don’t approach jams with too high speeds. The gps screen provides detailed information about jams and other enclosure for drivers to take proper judgments. Things have certainly improved here because in earlier versions sometimes closures were depicted as no congestion points.

The Good thing

Estimating the overall travel time has certainly been made easier via Predictive Flow Feed. As always with TomTom, the accuracy of data is never a question the company uses data from millions of vehicles and in any case is miles ahead of competing firms. Several users were impressed with this feature and what’s more, it has been made cost effective without any kind of mandatory subscription. The estimated data expense runs in just a few MBs.
