TomTom has a reputation for offering easy-to-use products, and the Go 910 is no exception. The 4-inch screen is large enough that intuitive symbols are easy to find with your index finger and it’s easy to further maneuver under each menu item. You have the device in your fingers after a relatively short holding time.

Touchscreen sensitivity is good, and we found no reason to object to route selections. The device can also be controlled via an easy-to-use remote control. The voice commands are precise and you also have the ability to influence the amount of information the voice should provide you. Maps of the United States and Canada are included in addition to the map of Western Europe. With 12 GB of free disk space, it has a large capacity for photo and music storage.

The rear of the GO 910 protrudes and the device is heavy. This makes it less suitable for city walking. It does, however, have a phone function that works well via Bluetooth. You download the directory from your mobile phone to easily find the person to call and incoming SMS messages appear on the screen. The only downside is that you have to use the extra microphone attached so the caller can hear you well, and so you get another loose wire on the dashboard.

You can easily upgrade device software and new maps, as well as download updated speed camera alerts and other POIs (points of interest). A number of additional services can be purchased, such as weather forecasts and quick fixes (the device recognizes where you are as soon as you turn it on). The TMC is optional equipment for just under a thousand Swedish crowns.
