    Need a new Tom Tom

    Hi Guys

    Was on here last year but lost my details.... anyway...

    Just come back from two months away in my motorhome touring France and Spain and my old trusty TomTom Go Classic which I have had for God knows how long burnt out in Spain. It had latest software and maps downloaded from here Not a sign of life on it.

    So, I'm looking to get hold of a newer version but don't want to spend £400+ I need one (its got to be a TomTom) with the wider screen, could do without bluetooth but it would be nice, need to be able to update Western Europe maps - my question is, there are loads of models out there, which is best value for money?

    Thanks in advance

    I've just got a Go 540 it has bluetooth handsfree calling on it too. I paid £149 from Total PDA but someone found this one which is really cheap
    Code:
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=350343563602&ru=http%3A%2F%2Fshop.ebay.co.uk%3A80%2F%3F_from%3DR40%26_trksid%3Dm570%26_nkw%3D350343563602%26_fvi%3D1&_rdc=1
    and its new.

    That one's not there now, have strated looking at a 730 looking at other threads on here. I now need to see what the difference is between the 540 and 730 :-(

    Strange, try this one then
    Code:
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/TOMTOM-GO540-HD-LIVE-UK-AND-REPUBLIC-IRELAND-/350343563602?cmd=ViewItem&pt=UK_AudioTVElectronics_GPSSystems_GPSSystems&hash=item51921a8952
    The new mount is good as your charger cable plugs into the mount so removing your tomtom device is just press a button and it comes off the docking station there is no fiddling about with the wire.

    I was going to buy a reconditioned x30 from TomTom but when I saw a brand new 540 I thought I might as well get the newer model, they have slightly restyled them.

    I think the main difference will be that the 540 has the Live Services on it.

    OK Guys, thanks for your input, the 540 will be the one I'm going for, especially at the price on that earlier link.

    Just seen a tom tom 730 Truck on Ebay, could this software be uploaded to the 540?

    You can use almost every software (meaning SE versions) on each Tomtom.

    No support over PM - check Tomtom Tutorials Section and ask within forums.

    As for the question what is the difference between 730 and 540..


    Unlike the 730 the Go540 has no FM transmitter.


    The only x40 with FM transmitter is the 940
