Laptop Mag Reviews TomTom 910


A couple of months ago laptopmag reviewed the TomTom 910 and gave it a very nice 4.5 out of five star rating. They really liked that the 910 had preloaded maps of North America and Europe, the large 20 GB drive, MP3 player, and Bluetooth functionality. They were not so keen on the price, and the outdated maps.

The company’s latest offering, the TomTom GO 910, is the first to provide preloaded maps of the entire United States, Canada, and Europe and has more features than a Boy Scout’s Swiss Army knife.

Having pre-installed maps for North America and Europe has been a big hit with many of our readers here. I know a few people who have purchased the 910 over something similar like the Nuvi because they don’t have to pay extra for another set of maps. While many people won’t utilize maps from both continents, it is a big seller for some people.

Our only complaint is that the POI database was outdated. We tried to go to a baseball stadium only to find that the GO 910 still referenced the old stadium torn down five years ago. … Despite the outdated POI data we encountered and the high price, the TomTom GO 910’s remarkable ease of use and plethora of useful and fun features help it blow away the competition.

If the price still looks like more than you want to spend, check out the 510 instead which doesn’t offer all the bells and whistles, however it is less expensive.

  1. I know you can download tons of extra POIs at TomTom forums, and hopefully the new map update offer will entice people more to buy either the 510 or 910– both solid products.

  2. Very good GPS. POI’s of around San Francisco are great, the UKs POIs are really bad, unless I am doing something wrong. I looked for a Dentist in London and it did not return one!
