I use TomTom Navigator 6 with my mobile phone - MDA. I have also tested nearly all other software for navigation so i will try to compare.
TomTom has the best menu navigation - it has only 5 items menu so it is possible to browse in menus when you are driving even if you have got a small display on your PDA. The menus are simple and it is very easy to adjust something very fast. Maps for TomTom are made not by countries as it is normally done by the others but by packs of countries so you dont need to switch maps so often. On the other hand if you choose igo2006 for example you can have all the maps at once and then no need to switch anything - there brings TomTom some difficulties when you are passing borders between two map sectors. One more thing that is not a plus for TomTom is the space required for maps. The other software has got a maps requirinch much less space on your memory card. TomTom is also not very fast when planning a route. If i compare with other software the planning in TomTom is the slowest, but it doesnt matter in the most cases.
My final decission is to use TomTom because of its simplicity. The maps are huge but good and the system is the best one for use while driving alone.
