Tom Tom

L. D. Joyce, Amazon
4 February 2009
  • Summary: This product is not particularly easy to use and could not programme without the help of my son. It does not always give you the quickest route. We were following our son on one occasion and Tom Tom wanted us to go miles out of our way.

Beware of additional charges!!!!!

Leo Dempsey, Amazon
4 November 2008
  • Summary: I bought my TomTom 520 in August following some research on the internet. I liked the concept of the MapShare idea. TomTom are now trying to charge me 60.00 to update my maps, only three months later. Perspective customers need to be aware of this!!!!! Battery life is poor to put it mildly. Apart from this the device performs well although I find the operation of the device somewhat illogical. Some items are burried deep in menu's and are difficult to find.

Poor Bluetooth & Battery life

F. Doherty "FDoherty", Amazon

  • Summary: Upgraded to this model from my old original tomtom one, found a few issues: 1.Internal speaker is not as crisp or clear as the tomtom one 2.Battery life is 90 minutes at most 3.Bluetooth handsfree is a joke, even at full volume you can hardly hear the caller above road noise 4.On battery power, after about 40 minutes the speaker starts to crackle for no apparent reason, this is rectified by changing to external power 5.The new style suction mount is a joke, its tiny, has...

not good enough

Robin Hood, Amazon
12 December 2007
  • Summary: Likes: * FM transmitter for the mp3 player and route comments * Spoken street names * Looks nice Dislikes: * The unit will not stay on the window * Map corrections don't appear on the unit after updates * After the first online update the unit stopped working until I put the backup back on. * Customer services don't answer emails. * Some strange routes chosen taking me off a main road and then back on for no reason.

TomTom Go520 - Difetti

candypag, Ciao
11 September 2008
  • Summary: Ho scelto questo navigatore pensando che fosse tra i migliori, in effetti il software è ottimo, già usato sul cellulare, ma mi sono reso subito conto che così non era: - la batteria, garantita per circa 5 ore, non dura più di due ore; - contattata l'assistenza non mi hanno dato spiegazioni plausibili; - la batteria non può essere sostituita se non dall'assistenza (cosa inammissibile, anche negli apparati più sofisticati è possibile sostituirla o prenderne una di riserva;...
  • Pros: Software
  • Cons: batteria non affidabile

User Review

nombre_chiao, Ciao

  • Summary: Pues yo lo he descambiado. Será un producto muy avanzado, pero lo he descambiado por 4 razones básicas: a) Reconocimiento de voz.- No funciona como esperaba. b) Información de tráfico en tiempo real.- Hay que comprar ademas otro aparato o subscribirte al servicio de TOMTOM c) Mapas.- En mi zona hay calles que no aparecen y no soy capaz de incluirlas. No me apetece que este proceso se tenga que hacer conectado a Internet.
