Is a TomTom Go Professional 6250 Worth Buying?

Is a TomTom Go Professional 6250 worth buying?
As I returned Trucker 6000 as it was worse than my existing Truck 5150 Pro.
Trucker 6000 had a boring green screen, no poi's, wasn't accurate with destination times, no "where am I", etc.
Is Go Pro 6250 any better? As I heard there's no poi categories and can't add edit or delete if import them, plus doesn't accept bmp format? Plus has issues with lane guidance not working.

    Also is the traffic text still tiny like the trucker 6000, need to wear glasses to see it?

    Hi
    On all of the latest NAV4/(5 Wifi) 6" devices try.....
    Tap (.... Menu) -> Setting -> Appearance -> Display -> Size of text and buttons... Choose Small, Medium or Large

    Trucker 6000 had a boring green screen
    Maps colours are fixed... Various Route themes are available
    No poi's
    Over 7 Million pre installed POIs... Yes you can Load 3rd party POI Catagories
    Wasn't accurate with destination times
    Were you setting your vehicle statistics correctly
    No "where am I"
    The GPS Coordinates displayed on the Coordinates Screen are live for your location

    Over 7 Million pre installed POIs... Yes, you can Load 3rd party POI Catagories
    Can't add edit or delete POIs
    Editing POIs directly on the device... Not available
    Doesn't accept .bmp format?
    Correct... But you can display POIs on the driving view using the Tomtom Generic POI Icons
    Issues with lane guidance not working.
    Some users are having problems with the Full-screen ALG failing to show but the MIni ALG usually does display

    I wear Varifocal Glasses all the time, I can easily read the traffic text on the 5" GO 520 (Wifi) using the default text size
    Ah well, I suppose the glasses thing comes to all of us in the end :)

    Trucker 6000 has smaller text to older models for the traffic. Is 6250 any better?

    Personally after getting the trucker 6000, which I returned as it'sa load of rubbish.

    Trying to place order, no-one from tomtom gets back to me. I'm going to see if snooper or garmin have any deals

    Hi
    In this thread, you appear to have already been in contact ???
    I got 25% discount with trucker 6000 plus a free protective case but trying to purchase the go pro 6250, with a 5yrs guarantee, they're only offering 10% when the total is £415.98 which is rubbish!

    Tap (.... Menu) -> Settings -> Appearance -> Display -> Theme Colour... Choose 1 of 7 Theme colours
    Plus altering txt size doesn't alter traffic text size
    The text size increases by 33% when the Size of Text and Buttons... Are changed from Small to Large

    Size of Text and Buttons... Set to small.....

    It is the onscreen text of the traffic that can't be increased on the right of the trucker 6000. Hence refunded and hope the go pro 6250 is better

    Hi
    As far as I'm aware the Traffic/Route Bar is independent of the driving screen
    The text size of the Traffic/Route Bar will only change with the screen size of the device

    5150 Pro with 5" screen is larger text than the trucker 6000 pro

    Hi
    The Trucker 5150 Pro is a NAV3 Device... The Trucker 6000 pro and the Go Professional 6250 are NAV4/5 devices, the NAV3 devices can't be used as a yardstick to make comparisons between the Trucker 6000 pro and the Go Professional 6250

    Hi
    The NAV4 devices were launched 3+ years ago, the latest incarnation of this range is NAV(5 Wifi) the latest devices have a uprated Processor are updated using Wifi (If required they can still be updated over USB)
