Cons Windscreen mount is weak.

I bought my Tom Tom 510 in August 2006. The display is excellent and the instructions very clear. The things I like best are the way you can use your mobile phone straight through the unit using Bluetooth. It gives you complete handsfree operation using it's built in microphone and speaker. You...

This is an exellent device, I would not go out without it, easy to use fully featured, and I got it for a great price and the bluetooth hands free is great, keeps me legal, and speed camera warnings a life saver.

The TomTom GO 510 gives clear concise directions accompanied by a map marked with the route you are following which comes in handy for those mini roundabouts that don't register on the map. Put in your destination by selecting a favourite (a place pre-defined by you), an address (can be done by...

ConsTraffic Receiver

I have had the 510 for about 5 months now and find it a really useful tool. It is portable so that you can move it from car to car, fixes quickly and easily to the windscreen and is secure provided that you fix it correctly. The screen is a good sixe and not too heavy for the holder as indicated...
