re: tomtomgo POSTCODE
I was under the impression the postcodes are only usable on the new range, since these are only due next month it doesn't suprise me that it says coming soon.

new or old
Iwant to buy a tom tom but do i buy the tom tom go or is it worth waiting for the new tom tom 300 to come out at the end of the month

re : new or old
definitely wait for the new version, it has lots of new features + new software, and i think it's cheaper than the original TTG price.
I'm not sure that many places are still stocking the older model anyway.

re: new or old
You could always pick up a very cheap original TomTom GO (I'm assuming prices of the older models will plummet now the new versions are out)... and then update its software to version 5 (same version as new models)

re: new or old
I wouldn't bother buying a 2nd hand or new older model and then trying to update its software. The new tomtom go (300) has new hardware features too.
Amazon are taking orders now for the TTGO 300, its cheaper than the original + free delivery. Think they ship it out to you on release date (it'll be just like harry potter 6 - arrives at the door when everyone's queuing at bookshops)
amazon's tomtom go 300

Tomtom go 300
Shows a tick for Bluetooth - is this correct because I read elsewhere that it did not have it?

Tomtom 300 bluetooth
The 300 does have bluetooth capability, as do all models. It uses it to connect to your mobile phone to receive 'TomTom PLUS' services.
It doesn't, however, have the bluetooth handsfree feature that the 500 and 700 models have.

Hi all - I have been told that the 300 has all of the features of the classic TTG and more. So, I am surprised to see that it doesn\'t have the assisted satellite navigation (for tunnels etc) - which means that you do lose a bit of functionality with the 300? Is this true or am I being stupid?!

Posted by Lee on 17/4/2005
Its true. The 300 doesn't have assisted satellite navigation - maybe why it's a bit cheaper than the classic TTG. You'll have to go for the 500 or 700 models if you want it.

500 and 700 models
Amazon are now stocking 500 and 700 models.
TomTom go 500 is 469.99
Tomtom go 700 is 549.99

TomTom updates
OK so it works straight from the box, but presumably you need to keep updating the data as the roads change and new cameras are added...am I right in thinking I do this with TamTam on my Mac?

Also, I assume there is no live feed for traffic info, so it won't warn you before you get to the queue?

Posted by V70R on 18/4/2005
RE:TomTom updates
Live feed traffic info - TomTom have added a service called "TomTom PLUS", TomTom GO will connect to a mobile phone via bluetooth (if you have one) to grab live data (traffic, weather etc.), I presume they'll charge for this service.

As for updating via a Mac. I think TamTam will let you update the TomTom software. Speed cameras aren't an official TomTom feature they're just POI (Point Of Interest) files. Ask TamTam if they support uploading POI to the TomTom.
