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: I've tried Garmin and Navman but the Tom Tom is the best display of them all. The only gripe I have, is connecting it to the PC causes problems getting it recognised for updates etc. My pc is new and I haven't had any problems with other USB connections. The other mark against it is getting a fix for traffic updates and weather etc when starting a journey which seems hit and miss. Apart from the "Live" part of the Tom Tom, it is very good.
Summary: It is AMAZING< dont know what i would do without it. Its google application is great as often i dont know the postcode but a quick search on google it brings it all up on the tomtom. No hassle! Time saver and safer on the road!
Summary: The sat nav itself works well, although there is nothing in the "manuals" provided that adequately explains the use of the various menu options. When traffic ahead is slow, alternative routes are sensibly calculated by the LIVE HD system. However the system does not seem to recognise when a road is temporarily closed to traffic, believing that no traffic means a road clear to use.
Summary: I purchased the TomTom Go550 with a years subscription to live services included in the purchase price. Now it's working correctly it's great. The live services proving to be very useful. However I spent a very frustrating week of communication with TomTom support team to get the live services to work at all. It is very frustrating to email the support team and then wait 2 or 3 days for a reply, especially when that reply is just to acknowledge reciept of your query.
Summary: Now on my second unit, the first appeared to have a problem with the GPS receiver and frequently lost signal - sent it back and got a replacement. Then needed help from TomTom support to sort out TomTom home. The second unit has been great - except that Live HD Traffic stopped working - couldn't log on to HD Traffic server! After getting back onto TomTom support and just over a week elapsed it is working again, with an extra couple of weeks on the live services contract.
Summary: I found the product relatively easy to set up, but I hit a problem when I downloaded the updated maps for the 550 live. I had set up my favourites but when I upated the maps, the download effectivly deleted them. I looked on TomTom help desk and found that this is a known thing and was directed to a round-a-bout way to stop this happening.
Summary: Very good piece of kit still waiting for code for 1 year subscription to HD services as advertised. I am a courier so still find problems with mapping even though its upto date. Sometimes freezes when using bluetooth mobile phone.
Summary: I was looking to update my existing TomTom One, and wanted a wider screen. I considered other brands but have always found the Tom Tom products easy to use and their displays are very clear and easy to follow, this product exceeds my expectations in that regard. There have been mixed reviews of the management software, but I have not so far experienced the issues that some have had when updating using TomTom Home, I dont find this software very intuitive and it can be...
