Good potential, but nasty

Old geek, Amazon
30 August 2006
  • 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.

TomTom doesn't provide much customer support

James R. Pomerantz "Jim", Amazon
21 July 2006
  • 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.

Great GPS...Service and support SUCKS!

James Hatsis "AHR", Amazon
14 August 2005
  • 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...
