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: 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.
Summary: I purchased a GO550 Live in Feb 2010 and was happy with the device. Navigation worked well and the IQ routes combined with the live services provide very good traffic information. However, after a couple of weeks I noticed I wasn't getting Safety Camera warnings any more. After 3 months of working with the very helpful TomTom support, the unit was replaced with another. Same problem after a few days. The unit was then replaced with a Go 950 Live.
Summary: Very easy to get started (for a novice like myself) and overall accuracy was good, though had an error near Weymouth where I was being directed to cross through a caravan park to get to Chesil Beach! Resorted to asking someone for directions! Still have a problem downloading stuff and getting updated maps etc My 1 month complimentary LIVE service has now come to an end. This service is very good.
Summary: I bought mine from comet. Everything was fine until I updated it, the unit would reboot after freezing for about a minute. This is no good if you're entering a roundabout. In fact after going back to factory settings and then trying to update again it never seemed as bad but on my way back home from Cardiff it rebooted itself 6 times by the time I reached Weston Super Mare. I have returned it to comet who are trying to contact Tom Tom and they should refund my dosh.

Te marca con precisión cuando tienes que cambiar de dirección o coger la salida, pero debes ajustar la velocidad del vehículo porque si no te puedes pasar y volver a esperar a que se recalcule la ruta.
