    Everyone is entitled to his/her own opinion but I don't follow this reasoning.
    Traffic info works the same in both GO and NDS. Install the app, make sure you have internet access and you're all set. I don't really see how NDS does this better then GO.

    Personally I like the lane guidance in GO more then the "modern" iteration in NDS. Other then that both versions get me where I need to be.

    Route calculating alghoritm in nds is different. That's the difference and in my opinion nds does it better.

    But on lane guidance I agree: Go is nicer.

    But the map coverage in the NDS version is much worse. Nearby, some smaller streets are missing, and a shell gas station that was built 6 or 7 years ago is not shown either.
    The advantage of the NDS version is only the route simulation from any point, and of course that you can load smaller maps

    Myself tried sygic, navigon, go and nds. Sygic crashes, has always issues map doesn't zoom and such, navigon has died they discontinued it. Go works pretty well but no pois no traffic unless you use mobile data and create TomTom account.
    Nds is best mobile navigation, it does show poi's, route calculation isn't best as I don't know for what reason sygic was showing the best route while nds was always choosing roads around. Another minus of Tom Tom is that doesn't show you three routes you can choose from like in other navi apps, instead you have to reroute. Apart from that best navi app I have tried.
    Well once I wanted to go to a small village and nds got confused first it calculated route and I went it was like 60 miles away when I was around 5 miles from the destination nds realised threes no more road it was trying to lead me through farms and such roads you can drive only tractors on, good I didn't trust TomTom I said no and ngs recalculated had to do another 25 miles back and take another route. It seems nds has problems with tiny roads and or blocked roads. Its still best navi app.

    I mostly agree with you, although my experiences with NDS have been positive (good route calculation in general, not always).

    Re. alternative routes/ 3 routes; once you have set your route, you can go to "current route" (I assume it's something like this in english, my phone is set up in another language) and choose "alternative route". TomTom then calculates 3 different routes and shows you how much longer/ shorter/ quicker those routes are compared to the original route.

    In general Tomtom NDS is very good. I agree that sometimes smaller roads are chosen, although that wouldn't be the most logical way to go. But you have to remember a lot of maps are drawn using satelite images. So sometimes a road is "misqualified"; it is given a better or worse rating then it actually should get.
