    Well, if it is your livelihood, perhaps one of the models of the 'simply the best' category in this link:
    http://www.tomtom.com/en_gb/drive/car/products/index.html

    BUT a warning, when you put a destination in such as 123 Main Street and are arriving at the specific destination, the number '123' will NOT show, just a destination flag.

    The difference between the 500/600 and 5000/6000 units are how they obtain traffic data. The 500/600 use your phone as a 'tethered' device to get the traffic data from TomTom. The 5000/6000 units have their own internal cell modems for doing this. Which you choose would depend upon whether you can get a decent deal from your cellular carrier for tethered data use of your phone. The actual data used isn't all that much for traffic, and if I understand the area you'll be servicing correctly, it shouldn't be nearly as much as in a major city. Metro NuT/Gateshead area is about the biggest city you'd be working, correct?

    I work like cab driver in London
    I need help
    Wright now I used an Garmin device nuvi 2598 lmt D with live traffic .
    Yesterday "beautiful" Garmin fail down :(
    Probably it is necessary to buy a new satnav and I need an advice. I wish the best satnav for a driver in London, with the best results for live traffic, 5inch, and cheap, cheap,.,. price

    When I say best results for live traffic means I am totally unsatisfied what offer me my actual Garmin in the last year, maybe I find something better.
    Excuse for my English, it is not my mother language......
