Summary: the sat nav on this unit is fine, the unit alows you to add voices screen savers ect, but the live services are crap, paid extra never worked for more than two weeks had the unit replaced still never worked, major software problem save your money
Summary: I have just been sent a replacement tmotom 540 and it has the same problem as th first ERROR 107 . It took TOMTOM support 1 week to tell me that this was not fixable and I should return it to the store. It's clear from earlier comments in this section that TOMTOM MUST know this is a common problem so why teh hell did it tale 1 week to give me an answer adfter making me go through all the suual factory resets and soft resets.
Summary: TomTom GO 540 Satellite Navigation System - LIVE UK & ROI This was a replacement for another GO 540 Live BOTH returned for exchange - unable to access Live Services!!! Sim fault. Now purchased different model with the refund.
Summary: Bought this unit 6 months ago and it has been problematic ever since. First of all Live Traffic stopped working and despite hours on the phone to tech support and numerous "fixes" it still doesn't (a quick search online reveals I'm by no means the only 540 owner having this problem though). More recently the touchscreen has become increasingly unresponsive, the unit reboots itself repeatedly on even short journeys and frequently loses the satellite signal.
Summary: Why did I read the reviews after I bought this TomTom? The live services are not working you are unable to connect to the internet with a error 107. Does anybody know if this is definitely a fault or a enable at server issue?
Summary: Ordered the tomtom 540 live about a week ago from Amazon and guess what, yeah, had the same fault as everyone else here with "error code 107" Im not sure if this is an issue with amazon or certain retailers at all, tomtom customer services told me that error code 107 means 'invalid or missing sim card' i doubt very much that Amazon source these cheaply from abroad and the units must be for the UK market as they come pre-installed with UK and ROI maps.
Summary: Well, I bought this TomTom Go 540 Live yesterday. I kept getting the dreaded Error 107 code. Having read all of these reviews and many others, I came to the conclusion that it was a faulty unit. I bought mine from Halfords and they exchanged the unit today without quibble. However, I asked them to test the unit whilst I was still at the shop and it was found to be faulty too. What the Halfords guy did tell me iS what this fault actually is.
Summary: Quite annoyed with this product. I bought my first unit from DixonsDirect, and the LIVE services did not work. TomTom support are totally useless so I returned the unit for a refund. I then decided to buy it from Amazon....guess what?...same problem!! I am not convinced that this is just an Amazon problem, TomTom are distributing faulty TomToms to retailers and not doing anything about it (just see the previous reviews on Amazon).
