GpsPasSion reviews TomTom Navigator 6 North America and concludes that “I like Tom Tom. I like the cleanness of the display and directions. I like that it supports a huge number of languages. I believe that’s one of the reasons they do well in the market for navigation software and stand-alone units. I was disappointed in the problems I’ve had with Tom Tom 6 recognizing maps on my SD card (which Tom Tom 5 had no problem with) and with the lack of Bluetooth stability (also originally a problem with 5 that was fixed by 5.21). I’m also a bit disappointed in the lack of improvements in the maps and was even more concerned by some of the odd routing choices Tom Tom 6 made. There are a lot of improvements in this version, from ease of installation, to the inclusion of door-to-door nation-wide (both U.S. and Canada) routing. When you consider all this, I think you still have to conclude that Tom Tom 6 is a reasonable update to Tom Tom 5. There are enough new features and overall improvements to give the upgrade value and I would expect the minor mechanical glitches I encountered to be improved or corrected soon.”
