Customer Reviews - LIVE Services

"I'm impressed by the ability to get up to the minute traffic information, which proved to be accurate (e.g. indicating just where a hold-up starts, and what is happening on other potential routes which avoid the problem). Also impressed by the accuracy of the forecast of arrival time."

"LIVE services go far beyond my expectations and offer excellent value. It probably saves its cost in fuel saving and definitely cuts down on stress whilst driving".

"The service allows you to concentrate on driving rather than attempting to spot the turning before passing it. You get a complete guide to travel time distance and speed traps. I cannot do without it."

"There are no longer any mysteries about what lays ahead or if you are on the fastest route. Tomtom keeps you updated with very accurate information on delays ahead and the alternatives available to you. The secret is 'Trust your Tomtom' and I certainly would not be without it."

What is the difference between TomTom LIVE Services and TomTom Services?

TomTom LIVE services is a bundle of services with a real-time connection.

With LIVE Services you pay a fixed amount per year, so you don’t have to worry about any additional phone costs. You will save time and money making use of this great combination of services.

To use TomTom LIVE Services, you need to have a LIVE connected device. If you do not have a LIVE connected device, you can subscribe to a lot of useful and fun services via TomTom HOME. This is desktop software you can install on your computer with which you can download these services directly and separately (not in a bundle) to your TomTom device.

However, to be able to use the services that require instant updates (such as Traffic or Buddies), you will need a wireless connection set up via your mobile phone (for example via GPRS).
