Tom Tom GO starts by displaying the navigation view.
Real time traffic, weather and extra downloads such as detailed city maps, additional voices and points of interest (POIs).
New customers receive a one month free trial of Tom Tom PLUS services.
Importantly, you can bring up the main options menu by tapping your finger somewhere in the middle of the screen.
Well, I say Garmin is better than Tom Tom because it has more waypoints, and a nicer screen than Tom Tom, but Tom Tom is a great GPS too. Use this cable to connect your Tom Tom to your computer, and then follow the instructions in this link to update the firmware (the software that is inside of the Tom Tom).
A really fun feature of the GO 300 are Tom Tom voices.
All the map information is stored on a removable SD card which means that you can easily change maps for, say different countries by simply switching SD cards.
A nice feature is the GO 300's ability to select a crossing street when inputting a destination.
Some time you don't have an exact street address and this is a an easy way to find your destination.
Minuses Screen glare is an issue with the GO 300, it can be difficult to read in bright daylight, especially on sunny days if there are bright objects in your vehicle or if you're wearing a bright shirt.
The brightly lit screen can be a little distracting, switching to night mode isn't difficult, it just requires a couple of clicks into preferences to change.
