My One XL is, well, old, and with 32Mb RAM, 1000's of POI, TTS, and other bits it can't quite keep up lol!
I fancy "Live HD Traffic" too. (How does this work? Radio? 3G?)
Which device is most suitable, and most suitable for continued hacking and updating. Do they still have SD card slots?
Once 12mths old, and "hacked", does the "Live HD traffic" function still work, or does it still need to be paid?
Happy to stick with TomTom devices over others.
This topic has already been discussed many times before in the sticky thread in the General Discussions section:
Buying a new device? Which to choose
Live HD Traffic requires a subscription, so it's not free.
The best TomToms which can be hacked are any GO models with an SD card slot.
Probably the best TomToms ever made (before the new uncrackable range) were the GO x20/x30/x40/x50 models. In other words, the models below:
GO 520 - released in August 2007
GO 720 - released in August 2007
GO 920 - released in October 2007
GO 530 - released in April 2008
GO 630 - released in October 2008
GO 730 - released in April 2008
GO 930 - released in April 2008
GO 540 LIVE - released in October 2008
GO 740 LIVE - released in October 2008
GO 940 LIVE - released in October 2008
GO 550 LIVE - released in September 2009
GO 750 LIVE - released in September 2009
GO 950 LIVE - released in September 2009
All of these have 64Mb RAM and come with an SD card slot, except for the x40 and x50 LIVE models which have a microSD card slot.
