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: I bought the 550 as my previous TomTom (730) was stolen from my car. I wasn't sure whether I would gain much from either buying the older version through eBay or upgrading to the new Live series. The connection (mini USB is the same but the connection is different so I can't now use the power cable that has been hidden behind the dashboard which is a pain but I assume TomTom did it for a reason and not just to wind me up).
Summary: We finally caved in and bought a satnav while planning a trip to Ireland and realising that the roads weren't always "as map". I knew nothing about satnav devices but I need not have worried - the TomTom is excellent. Very easy to use, very easy to set up, easy to download map updates and speed camera updates, and easy to add additional voices too.
Summary: Not had a Sat Nav before and there are so many to select from. Went for the TomTom and so far its been great, no issues so far, you have consider some of the directions a little as they are not always sensible but other than this i'm very happy Would recommed this product
Summary: Had an older TomTom 910 for over 5 years and generally was very happy with it. Finally bit the bullet and upgraded to a shiny new one and am very impressed with the smaller form factor and additional features - for a fraction of the cost I paid for my first one all those years ago. So much better than all the mobile-phone based systems I've seen.
Summary: Just the MOST brilliant piece of kit EVER. This is my 3rd TomTom and I just could not live without it and a mobile phone. For this reason the Bluetooth facility is excellent and I have it switched on all the time to use as a hands free device, even when not using it as a navigation tool. I love the way it warns you if you are going over the speed limit. Everything about it is brilliant but I do wish it would switch to night colours automatically as my previous one did.
Summary: Bought this for my sons birthday ,we went to ikea in warrington it told us about delay and gave another route and the extra time it would take i only bought this model for the bluetooth answering phone for when he was driving to bristol so he could tell me where he was and was ok parent do worry about their children even if they are 25 but this is 1 big leap forward if you need a sat nav your want this one its mind blowing oh and great service from amazon 2 day delivery
