Don't Buy if near US/Canada Border

K. Kelly, Amazon
22 September 2006
  • Summary: This GPS comes with US map on the SD card and Canada map on the included CD but never the twain shall meet. By car I'm a few hours from Canada and several days from the eastern US but I can't swap out the faraway eastern US part of the map on the TomTom Go 300 for a nearby Canadian map. It's either all Canada or all contiguous US. This is a major functional flaw if you live near the US/Canada border or live further away and like to take cross-border trips.

Poor support for defective mapping engine

A. Shah "ashah2", Amazon
13 September 2006
  • Summary: If TomTom's maps fail and you submit a bug report, the nice support site sends you to TeleAtlas's site which promptly CLOSES the support request. It took two requests before I realized I was being redirected away from TomTom's site. The real problem is not with the maps (which is a good thing), but with the mapping engine (determine how to find a point on a map).

Disposal Item - No repair available from Tom Tom

P. Rengo "Aeroboy", Amazon
30 April 2006
  • Summary: Overall I liked my Tom Tom Go, until it was 15 months old and went blank refusing to turn on. It was dead. I called Tom Tom support and they said send it in. I did, they called and said it was out of warranty, which is 1 year. I agreed, how much to fix it? Sorry we don't fix them, we through them out, no repairs. But, we'll sell you another one for only $300. And, it will be the same model you have, no upgrade to current model. I think this is a real rip off.

TomTom Steers Me Wrong

Ken, Amazon
19 February 2006
  • Summary: I purchased a TomTom navigator system based on good experiences with renting cars with Magellan's Neverlost. The Magellan unit was expensive and I found the TomTom had a superior user interface, was portable and less costly. So I purchased the TomTom Go. I can't give enough praise to the user interface. It is very intuitive. The graphics are large and easily read from a distance. Its speaker delivers loud and clear speech.

TomTom GO 300 gebraucht gekauft

schreib2008, eBay.de
8 September 2009
  • Summary: Beim Kauf eines gebrauchten TomTom muss man sehr darauf achten, wie alt die Karte darauf ist, denn wenn die Karte, wie in meinem Fall, etwa 3-4 Jahre alt ist, kann man mit dem TomTom praktisch nichts anfangen. Eine neue Karte kostet dann so viel, dass man gleich einen neuen TomTom erwogen hätte!!
