Disposal Item - No repair available from Tom Tom

P. Rengo "Aeroboy", Amazon
17 March 2007
  • 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
17 March 2007
  • 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.

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
12 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).

User Review

compadre, Ciao

  • Excerpt: Go 300 is easy to use but does make mistakes on some of the routes. If I had not used my common sense, on occasions I would be in the "back of beyond" as the 300 has misdirected me. I have had the product for 18 months now and it has started to play up - don't know if this is a software or hardware problem because it is virtually impossible to get through to Customer Support - the website takes me all around the place but is unable to give me customer support contact.

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!!

TOM TOM 300.... meglio una versione successiva

bittech87, Ciao
24 February 2008
  • Summary: E' semplice nell'utilizzo ma, purtroppo devo dire che come segnale, il GPS lascia a desiderare. E poi necessita di un continuo aggiornamento di mappe perchè molte strade sono a lui sconosciute. Inoltre ogni qualvolta si perde il segnale è necessario un po di tempo prima che ricalcoli il percorso e dica dove si trovi nel nuovo istante. E' sicuramente un gioiellino utilissimo a volte indispensabile, non lo metto in dubbio.
  • Pros: Navigatore satellitare ormai quasi come un cellulare :  fondamentale nei viaggi
  • Cons: Segnale facilmente perdibile, mappe da aggiornare in continuazione, prezzo eccessivo
