Tyson Currie says:

Tom Tom is by far better, looks like they can upgrade on some things but is the better choice, I have an actual Tom Tom GPS with lifetime map updates, that thing is awesome, I am now looking to get it on an old smartphone so it can be used as a GPS since I have two vehicles and my wife always taking the Tom Tom GPS for her. Get the Tom Tom

Mahdi Attar says:

I don’t think the”smart phone” will replace the stand alone gps. My gps BLOWS my smart phone away when it comes to driving directions… and I can tell by the video it would blow them away too. It’s a Garmin by the way. And just to add, I know 5 or 6 people who have and/or had a Tom Tom and everyone is of the same opinion. GET A GARMIN! TOM TOM IS CRAP.

Mscellobass says:

Great review!

Richard Conte says:

Do you have to get the car kit with the Garmin or Tom Tom apps for it to work on your phone? What if you are walking. Can you also hear the navigation on the built in phone speaker?

Navigator GPS-YouTube says:

Super Navi…

Dziuginta Stasiuliene says:

I’m used TomTom start 60- brilliant GPS! 6inch.

Stefano Marino says:

It appears some of the comments are based on opinion and not the facts demo here. I notice some comments repeated over and over. I guess they are bored and have only one opinion.
Driving and using the iPhone for directions is a good way to run into a tree when you get a call and answer even with bluetooth.  Merry New Year.

Mr Stone_age_man says:

Well it’s seem tom-tom show more clear direction, look at 5:43 Garmin bring you a long way. Tom-tom GPS always alert turn left, right or round about before 300 meters to one hundred meter.

The Flying Postman says:

I disliked the Garmin colour purple road. Can you change different colour like the TomTom do?

Princess Ginwood says:

I like the TomTom better! Thank you for this great comparison video!

Some GPS on smartphones like the lgg2 have lousy GPS navs.
I was going to trade in my phone for another because of this (other issues of the lgg2) but quickly found out that many smartphones do not have very good GPS.

TomTom Win

Barry Chapman says:

For my money I prefer the tomtom, I have always had a tomtom and now have a start 20 with the free for life map update’s  after some kind crook took my tomtom from the delivery van XL live, thanks for the demo’s.

kiyonexus says:

standalone GPS units are soon to be obsolete… we all have smartphones now.

Matt Dathew says:

US Roads are awful!!

Anthony Bsn says:

That. Was

Khiem Doan says:

Tomtom is not my fav because when it’s night it turn green I like Garmin

Denis Munger says:

I own both. The tom tom has superior text to speech ( very much better in french and spanish). But garmin provides better road trip planning. Tomtom allowed me to tour place i’ve never been that would have avoided if i could. The lifetime map subcription is a must. Le francais de garmin est si mauvais qu’il est quasiment inutilisable autrement qu’en anglais. Mais en anglais Garmin surpasse TomTom haut la main.

Walter Adobe Flash Player says:

El hardware de ambos son geniales incluso sus sistema operativo pero ….
¿Gps con conenxión 3g? jaja UN DESASTRE en puerta

Jiggs2005 says:

I wonder which ones better in short review and keywords or bullet points and what Garmin sounds are like

Cody Slab says:

*both utter crap, both have update frequency 1Hz, horrible and dangerous for driving, you need 10Hz receiving GPS frequency for smooth propagation of the map* Google: “GPS 1Hz vs 10Hz”

chris zziplex says:

Garmin more like garbage

Mike Studmuffin says:

ARe apps better than their Standalone Devices?

Jatt Lalkar says:

Tibor Borbély says:

The best is the Hungarian iGo

Rolando Candia says:


Gary Cameron says:

TomTom is too dumbed down for my liking.  Waze ( is the way to go.  It’s on my phone and updated automatically  No need for yet another device.

borys Admin says:

kidder lar says:

Tom tom app downloads maps so don’t need constant data , plus it’s excellent and well worth paying for
