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.
Excerpt: The only reason I bought this particular model was because a friend of mine had done ALOT of research when they bought one and when I borrowed it, I actually really liked it and ended up buying one myself...
Pros: good features, excellent support service from Tom Tom
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...
Excerpt: I was very dubious when buying this to begin with. I've always driven using road signs, maps and a good sence of direction. Apon buying the Tom Tom Go 530 in late 2008 and turning it on I very quickly changed my mind. The device is very simple to set-up.
Pros: Extremely easy to use, visually looks nice, has GPS updates via PC etc .
Cons: Wish it came with a hard carry case for when not plugged in
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.
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: I hate driving! I can't tell you how stressed out and panicky I get about being lost/wrong lane/ missing a junction or turn etc etc. HATE HATE HATE IT. So when my Boss told me I'd got a training course 65 miles away I sighed with despair as the train service was non existent!
