Summary: The Tomtom has great features. But I returned mine. First, the maps are very dated. This makes it iffy at best. It has terrific potential, if it worked. You can use a PDA stylus on the map sitting at home outside on batteries to plan a trip. It's amazing. But I wanted to plan a 600 mile trip myself using it's internal maps and waypoints. But I tried a local test first. I used roads as waypoints, main roads. This way I can force the Tomtom to use MY routes.
Summary: I bought the original Tom Tom Go back in November 2004. Since then, my attempts to reach their customer service have all met in failure. My last attempt, 10 days ago, was an effort to buy updated maps for my product. Yes, their website will offer to sell you maps, but there is no way to determine the date of the maps you already own, and no way to determine the date of the maps that you would be purchasing, in some cases for a large sum of money.
Summary: I bought this GPS as a gift for my wife because of it's reported ease of use and the ability to buy and download additional voices. I have problems with the TomTom website. Using any computer it is impossible to make a purchase.. after registering for the site and figuring out which "code" they are asking for...
Great interface and functionality but BAD BAD MAP DATA
22 July 2005
Summary: First, I returned my GO 300 after a week of trying to justify why I should keep it. This product is superior in almost everyway to other similar products except its Map Data is very very inaccurate and the routing is terrible. 1) I tested this unit to route from work to my home and it generated a route that requires me to go through about 20 stop lights when I know the correct route is through 2 freeways and a total of 3 stop lights.
Summary: Drie jaar geleden gekocht, het was een aanbieding â‚¬ 395. Nu begrijp ik waarom dit was. Ik had gevraagd van deur tot deur vanwege onze rondreis door Belgie, Luxemburg, Frankrijk, Spanje, Portugal, Spanje, Frankrijk, Belgie en Nederland. Mij werd verzekerd dat aan alle wensen met dit product was voldaan. Niet dus, de Benelux was alleen vdtd. Met verschrikkelijk veel fouten en heb natuurlijk contact opgenomen met de PDA shop in Rotterdam.
