Summary: We were so happy when we bought our first GPS unit 8 months ago. But our experience with TomTom GO510 has been a frustrating one. The unit requires frequent resets, sometimes right in the middle of unfamiliar places.
Don't be fooled by the features: the 510 is a poor purchase

Summary: I bought this to replace an old Magellan Navigator, and after using it for one month, I've found it to be inferior in almost every way. To give you a sense of the problems: 1) The TT 510 doesn't recognize a lot of rural street names around my area, referring to them instead by route number.
Excerpt: absolutely rubbish i had mine 2 months and i had to keep on getting an exchange and now i use paper book maps it is not worth buying any tomtom because they are rubbish i used mine for work and it used to lose signal.
Summary: Sorry to be so negative but have had nothing but trouble with the Tomtom go 510 since I bought it a few months ago. The power lead doesn't fit properly, it is too loose, and so it is difficult to charge up.

Summary: I agree with some of the previous statements - its a lottery. Unfortunately, I lost the lottery after buying the 510. I was 3 days into a two week holiday on the winding roads of Norfolk when the unit died. I had to head for the nearest big town to buy a new unit (NOT a TomTom I might add!
Summary: Do NOT buy this unit. I have received mine and I was dying to get it into the car. I have not even managed to remove the protective plastic sheet from the front of it yet. It has frozen on the popup splash page when it boots up.
Summary: I bought one of these as it looked a good specification. The unit would not recognise the memory card and so was returned and a replacement given. The second would recognise the card but could not find a GPS signal on a clear day out of the car with no obstructions.
Summary: Ordered mine after re-assurance from TomTom via e-mail that they do not have issues with the current TomTom 510. I'll make no further comment on that, thanks Amazon for a speedy refund when I had to return it due to...
