Review of TomTomGO 300
Advantages: Easy to update, user friendly, full postcode search, bluetooth, hands free Disadvantages: occasional 'dead' moments, occasional strange routes
...I bought the Tomtom Go 500 the week it came out. At this point Satnavs were a luxury rather than an everyday item that most cars seem to posess these days.
I had decided on Tomtom based on the fact that they seems to have good reviews of their previous models and they were a lot cheaper than the competition, though at £469 I still wouldnt call it cheap.
