Summary: Just thought I'd put a 2015 relevant review here. Perfectly good in 2007, but onsale currently for £140. For this money you could get a cheap smartphone which could get traffic updates (for free) on google maps and would be just as reliable as this. Battery died after about a year, and the charging cable about a year after that which made it difficult to use. Touch screen is resistive (not like what you get on a smartphone).
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.
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.
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...
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.
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;...
Summary: Pues yo lo he descambiado. SerÃ¡ un producto muy avanzado, pero lo he descambiado por 4 razones bÃ¡sicas: a) Reconocimiento de voz.- No funciona como esperaba. b) InformaciÃ³n de trÃ¡fico 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.
