Summary: So far I am very pleased with my purchase. I have not been able to take any long journeys due to the recent bad weather but I am sure from what I have seen of the device it will give me much more confidence when I am back on the road.
Summary: I've had a TomTom 530 for about 3 years and I'm generally very pleased with it. The only 'bad' thing I've discovered are the updates - I did the first update last week after finding that the map on the sat nav didn't coincide with the road I was on! So, after paying just less than £40.00 I updated my TomTom to find that all my saved information had been deleted - it was like starting out with a new sat nav.
Summary: I have had a 530 for a while now. I have also had other TomToms. I think many people are unfair in their criticisms of sat navs which I believe are invaluable and a safety feature in a car, at least compared to someone trying to divide their attention between road signs, a dubious paper map and the traffic. First problem I had with the 530 was that it would not download the latest maps and this will also be an issue for anyone who wants new maps.
Summary: Exactly what you need from a SatNav. Best thing about TomToms is that there's so much after market add on's you can apply. You can even play your MP3's through your radio player via radio frequency!!! Only gave this item 4 out of 5 is bacause the battery life is very poor when using all it's extras, but what do you expect, if you use any product to it's full capabilities, then it'll battery life isn't going to last long.
Summary: Excellent item although make sure you get the right one. I wanted the TomTom Go 530 as it has an RTS traffic update report - giving you live traffic info updates such as jams etc. However I have since discovered that this feature is only available on the TomTom Go 530 T - which was disappointing as I spent a long time trying to make sure I bought the right model.
Summary: well this is my first sat nav and by what i have experianced so far l am well pleased,the bluetooth is great to use and the speak addresses is ace,Although this tomtom go 530 is not the most up to date version out at the moment,but you can update things on the tomtom home website, l brought it course it suited what l wanted and the price from amazon wes very reasonable.the only down side so far is dont believe any body that tells you that this tomtom or any other tomtom...
Summary: Most of the time it did good, the best thing is you can use it a mp3 player through the FM, the things which I did not like the you can not shut off the voice instruction alone while you listen to music, you can either shut them together or enable them both. Other thing you have to be careful if make a mistake in any roundabout TomTom will not help you much it's slow and you will end up stopping somewhere after you take one of the exits as looping in the roundabout will...
Summary: Just what I was looking for! Maps are fairly accurate, and you can amend anything you find wrong and then share it with the wider community, after it hasa been verified by TomTom (although this seems to take a while). Very easy to set up, change routes, save and change preferences etc.
Summary: Very pleased with the 530go,have had this product for about 6wks, no probs picking up or losing signal,longest I've had to wait on starting up is 2minutes to find signal,have got a"works" tomtom 1 which is always losing signal and can wait up to 15 minutes to retrieve the only moan I have is that the sound on the 530 could be louder,a bit quite and tinny,but would definetly buy again.
