Engadget has tested TomTom’s LIVE services in the US. Their main conclusion: The service is okay, but not worth a monthly subscription –

“We’d like to make clear that we’re really not setting our expectations too high. In fact, we’d happily deal with the erratic / slow updates if the services were included gratis, but in today’s market place, anything forced upon a consumer on a monthly basis should be strikingly good. As much as we’d love to love the GO 740 LIVE, we just can’t recommend it so long as TomTom keeps charging you for the privilege of ownership. And — just in case the industry is watching — that goes for anyone out there trying to generate recurring revenue from lackluster PND extras.”
