Summary: Hi bought Tom Tom Sat Nav every year for the last three years. I work all over Britain and need a sat nav to do my maintenance job. My house is over ten years old and tom tom still cant get me the name of my street. My tom tom is over a year old and is starting to reboot itself every time i put a street address in. I also downloaded some of the free voices on the tom tom website and when i installed the voice i got a virus in system so be aware.

Summary: I have owned the GoLive 550 nearly a year ago now and have used the Live subscription services that gives me access to Traffic, safety cameras, weather and best of all - Google search! I have found using a post code to navigate to a location, particularly in the countryside is often too inaccurate. Using Google however, I have been able to navigate to absolutely anywhere and hear the magic words "you have reached your destination" and I am actually there.
Summary: We've had our 550 Live since September 2010 and I have to say that it's one of the best purchases I've ever made. The fact that we won another TomTom Satnav at Christmas was ever so slightly galling but never mind. It was initially bought as a present for my wife who was about to start a new job that involves travelling around different parts of the South East.
Summary: This started off great with being able to put in a full post code. However, the item keeps having to be reset as it looses the talking for directions regularly. This I hope will be resolved by the people at tom tom soon.
Summary: Bought the GO LIVE 550 and am generally very pleased with it, but it keeps rebooting on start-up. Once it took 8 minutes to settle down. Forums list keeping it up-to-date and reformatting. I keep mine up-to-date and still get problems but maybe less often; others on forums suggest that even reformatting and reinstalling doesn't help. The problem seems to be related to the initial download of information.
Summary: I have used this the tomtom now for a good few months. I have to say the live services are brilliant, which is the main reason why I bought it. The quality of call if you want to connect your phone to it and use it this way is not so good, my Parrot bluetooth car kit does it much better. The screen sometimes is non-responsive which is annoying and yes sometimes it suddenly restarts itself, specially when it cant find the live services.
