TomTom GO 530 Traffic

Already tip-top TomTom gets tweaked

SANS - Survey on application security programs

Speaker quality was excellent too, though on occasions we could have done with more volume, especially when using the unit for hands-free mobile phone calls. The incoming call was always quite a bit quieter than the system voice prompts.

On screen navigation is up to TomTom's usual high quality, the screen never being overburdened with information, but still telling you all you need to know. Points of interest coverage is comprehensive and naturally includes all Gordon Brown's ATMs safety cameras. A handy feature is the Quick Menu option to put selected short cut buttons on the screen, such as one to add your current location directly to a favourites list or fire up the voice recognition function.

The windscreen cradle is compact and has an excellent ball mount

Incidentally, the voice activated destination selection works surprisingly well so long as you speak clearly.

The 530 is not without the odd niggle. The first is that you can't delete selected entries from the list of previous destinations, thereby leaving the ones you are likely to use again on the list and removing those you are not.

The second is the over-sensitivity of the day/night sensor. Drive down a road with plenty of overhanging trees and the screen swaps back and forth between the two colour settings with distracting frequency.
