Summary: People moan about satnavs but mine has got me to my destination many a time, the online updates keep you informed of any alterations to the roads. On the downside I have been told to turn right in Hastings "into the sea" so watch out. I would not be without mine though.
Summary: I brought this sat nav for my parents as they have had the newest version of tom tom before and found it to be toataly unreliable. This is the same model that I have had for years and have never had a problem. The sat nav came very well packaged and in only a couple days after ordering. Have only used it once so far but have found that it works impecabily.
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... I've owned this model for over a year after having the first one replaced by Tom Tom due to a malfunction and it cost me £229.00 from Halfords online... It comes with a holder to attach it to your windscreen along with a charger for the car ...
Pros: good features, excellent support service from Tom Tom
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. It only takes approx 5 minutes to set a home position, your own details and various other customisable options (such as backgrounds, colour screens, voices etc etc) The first proper use I had was ...
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: Very pleased with the item. Definitely an improvement on my Tom Tom Go 300. Initially I could hardly hear the instructions and then discovered that the volume was set to 5% by default!! Once this was changed everything fine. Would definitely recommend the product and as usual, Amazon's service was excellent.
Summary: TomTom GO 530 Satellite Navigation System]]great buy dad very pleased, it would of been better if it had a written manual with it,with dad being a bit older found it harder to take in he likes to read instructions over and over again ,tryed to get him a manual but could not find one, but other than that 10/10.
Summary: i purchased the TomTom540live in dec 2008 and i didnt think much of it but my partner liked it alot so now he as the 540live and i purchased the GO530. which i am very happy with.. mainly because i was able to find avoid motorways on the GO530 which i couldnt find on the 540live... the only thing is the car window mount is not as good as the 540live. and can easy fall off... apart from this small disappointment im very happy with the item....
Summary: I did a lot of research before finally plumping for the 530 GO. i wanted something a bit more than the basic but not exorbitantly expensive - this fitted the bill perfectly. i used to have a Navman but this is superior in every way. The main criteria i wanted was a sat nav that you could keep up to date without shelling out any money - that's where the Tom TOM Map Share is so good. I've had it for 6 weeks and used it all over Britain.
Summary: I purchased TomTom 530 last December and am not disappointed at all. At a time I thought that it was broken when the sound was gone. Later I understood that it was just because of battery power was low. As soon as I connected my TomTom to the car charger, the sound was back.
