Summary: a big step backwards, still slow, lots of things missing from previous versions. If you have owned a tomtom before then read the manual as it is NOTHING like any of the old models !!!!!! Awful awful. Great to see you can add more than 3 waypoints but what a nightmare.....free map updates wahoooo but the 1005 go was much better, much easier to operate, more simple and user friendly.
Ok for your granny to go to the shops. NOT for navigating Europe or road trips.

Summary: Piece or rubbish. This is NOT a true navigation device. I was doing a 700 mile route from Germany to Cherbourg France and wanted to avoid Paris. There is no option to avoid a part of a route from a list or a point on the map like you can on previous tom-tom devices. You cannot ask it to plan via certain points either. There is no travel via, or avoid part of route option! It only gives what it thinks are options, but I want to go where I want! Not where it wants!
Summary: This device is terrible, it hardly has any functions like some of there previous models.A shame really as I was a tomtom customer for many years (but no more). I'm going to try a Garmin as even there cheap ones have more features . I feel the 5000/6000 is over priced for such a basic model . No wonder they are offering cash back to sell them.Sorry Tomtom up your game otherwise you'll lose more customers .
Summary: The TomTom Go6000 is the worst bit of tech I have ever bought. I own an XXL but that does not have enough space to store W.Europe + USA together. The Go 6000 does. The unit has no battery indicator or charge light, hence if there is a problem, the first indication is when the unit advises that the battery is low - by then it is too late.
New Gereration TomTom as bigger screen but it is rubbish to use..avoid it

Summary: This is my fifth Tom Tom device, and I truly believe that the basic Tom tom "Live" traffic service is way ahead of the competition. however this new generation TomTom device is a disaster! Whereas the GUI of previous devices was simple and east to use this is both illogical, difficult and unreliable Attempt to log a new location you wish to return to (I write this from vacation in Majorca, so say the hotel you are staying in, and it gives you the option "add new...
Summary: After a few hours of working properly the machine started to reboot about every 15 seconds and it is not stopping. This is in the middle of our European road trip so this TomTom has left us in pickles. I noticed after some Google search many people had the same problem back in 2011; this did not filter through to the Amazon reviews. TomTom should be ashamed of themselves to release such faulty software. I used to have the American Garmin which always worked well.
