Terrible

  • Summary: I bought this unit today after doing days of research. I created an account and connected my new device as instructed. Selected the down load updates and 3 hours later I'm still trying to get it working. No update, NO maps, in fact it completely emptied my software and I cannot use it.

  • Summary: Item very difficult to set up, wouldn't connect to my laptop and it isn't an old laptop. Doesn't come pre loaded with worldwide maps just UK and Ireland. Very very poor from TomTom but Halfords were absolutely excellent.
  • Pros: nothing
  • Cons: everything

  • Summary: I was looking for a replacement for a long past it NAVMAN, this looked excellent because of the world maps and free lifetime updates but returned the day after purchase as faulty. The unit failed to give voice directions even though the visual directions worked fine.
  • Pros: web site, software update, world maps

Poor quality and directions

J. Halpern, Amazon
28 August 2010
  • Summary: I am greatly disapointed in the quality of the product. The device frequently takes 5+ minutes to locate my position when I turn it on. I shouldn't have to get the device out to the car and turn it on several minutes before I leave so that I can get directions to my next destination.

Piece of Junk

  • Summary: I have had nothing but trouble with this unit. It could not navigate on the olympic peninsula in Washington state. Resets itself too often. Finally, when I really needed it one night, it died. Not a power issue as it was plugged into the car with the charge light on.

  • Summary: Bought a Tomtom Go 510 several years ago. The device served me well. I recently connected it to my computer to update the maps. The winners at Tomtom updated the software and the device went completely liberal and never worked again. Engineering without competence!

Junk

H. B. Helleman, Amazon
28 August 2010
  • Summary: Bought my Go510 on November 14 as a Christmas present for the wife. It comes with only 90 days of warranty. Today is April 6 and the thing is broken. For a few days it had trouble finding the satellites, then just went dead. It was never abused, never left the car.
