Awesome value for the cost. Purchased a refurbished prodect.
5 July 2011
Summary: Have a Garmin but needed one for work vehicle. The 630 is an excellent GPS with easy attach and remove holder. The only problem is with the bluetooth capability. It does not have enough major brand phones compatability.
Summary: Many reviews mention the same thing... problems with the battery. I'll join them. If you use the GPS plugged into power constantly, you'll love this. It works great, it's fast (significantly faster than the ONE/XL/XXL series), it looks good. The two problems are the mount and the battery. The windshield mount on this is possibly the worst I've seen on any TomTom.
Summary: I purchased the tomtom go 630 refurbished as I dont mind a few scratches etc as I will most likely add to the "character" of the unit shortly anyway, as I will be taking on my motorcycle and throwing it in the truck, depending on the day's vehicle choice. That being said I recommend spending the extra 50 or 60 dollars up front and getting a brand new unit with guaranteed "latest map" rather than getting a refurbished unit.
Summary: hi I liked this Tom Tom GO 630 model after doing lot of research. It has blue-tooth functionality which can be used for hands-free calling when you are driving. I tried it and it works perfectly fine. Indeed its a nice feature. Since it is tom tom, no need to mention how good it is for navigation. The only problem I faced is while mounting it on adhesive disk on Dashboard.
Summary: Bought this for my wife primarily because you can use your voice to enter locations. It does that just fine. My only complaint is that I needed to go and get updated maps since it apparently was using older maps ( I noticed that roads which had been changed over 5 years ago were still showing the old routes). For the money it is a very good buy and delivers what it promises.
Summary: I am satisfied with my Tom Tom GPS. I especially like the info shown on the screen including the time, time and miles to destination, speed, miles to next intersection and the directions given. If you go off stated course the new course is plotted quickly. The improvements I would want are: Longer battery life then 3 hours. A better 3D image of freeway signs and lanes as I have seen on another GPS although it lacked the Tom Tom screen info.
Summary: Excellent model, for the most part, appreciably better than the Garmin 765T which I purchased from Amazon at a higher cost and tried for about two weeks, but which never was able to receive traffic reports as advertised. Garmin's technical support was weak at best and not able to solve the problem. Garmin ultimately determined that its traffic receiver was defective and told me that I had to return it for a replacement.
