Good but not great

Carol, Amazon

  • Summary: I have owned this product for about 4 months. It works reasonably well for the US business trips I take, but I would not purchase it again. I am travelling to Australia in July, and as far as I can tell, there is no map available for Australia for the Tom Tom Go 700. The map of Australia on their web site is priced at an astonishing Euros 199, but doesn't appear to work on the 700. My screen almost immediately developed what appears to be a stain under the touch screen.

Bad Support Improving (?)

T. Goldin, Amazon

  • Summary: The product works better than the Magellan product I tried last summer. However, the mounting bracket broke and it has taken over two months to get a commitment for TomTom to replace it. Until recently they did not have a published US support phone number. Now they do (it is 866.486.6866). It is very good in open areas, but in a city with many tall buildings (like New York), it (and every other GPS I have tried) gets very confused. When restarted in a new location (i.e.

  • Summary: Opinions on GPS systems are obviously very subjective. For me, this was my first experience with GPS units. I drive about 2,000 miles a month in the midwest for work and getting rid of my atlas was a must. I found the maps on the Tom Tom to be quite outdated. New roads as well as reconstruction (interstate interchanges) that are 4-5 years old were not on the Go700. Along I-70 between Indianapolis and Dayton there are 3 rest areas in either direction....

Excellent interface, mediocre performace, buy the 300 instead

  • Summary: After weeks of research, reading reviews, and comparison shopping between the Lowrane IWay 500c, the Garmin StreetPilot 2270, and the Tomtom go 700, I finally decided to plunk down $800 for the Tomtom Go 700. Following a week of use including a roundtrip from Sacramento to LA, here are some of my findings. Pros: Start-up time is quick. It typically only took 10-15 seconds to start up and an additional 10 seconds to accurately find my position.

TomTom Go 700

Mr. Warren Gill, Amazon

  • Summary: My Tom Tom Go 700 worked straight from the box and has successfully naviagetd me around most of the UK and even Northern Italy. I have found my Parrot in car bluetooth telephone kit much better that the TomTom built in system but I have appreciated the full European mapping. TomTom Go 700 is probably only worth the extra money over the 300/500 if you regularly go abroad.

Impressive but a few niggles..

  • Summary: The 700 is a great piece of kit. The ability to see the bend in the road, unmarked crossroads and your passage through a set of roundabouts in a busy city half a mile before you hit them, is brilliant. I added the voice of John Cleese via a USB cable linked to my desktop. The addition of a bit of humour to navigation works for me and he is genuinely funny!

2-Wochen-Test in der Toskana

Fairnessmusssein, Ciao
22 August 2006
  • Summary: Hallo, nachdem hier überwiegend positives über das TomTom Go 700 geschrieben wurde, habe ich mir das Gerät gekauft und bin damit für 2 Wochen in die Toskana gefahren. War mein erstes Navi. Ich fand es hilfreich, aber nicht überzeugend. Habe es wieder zurückgegeben. Es gab es bei meinem Gerät einige Funktionsfehler und das Kartenmaterial hat mich nicht überzeugt. Zudem noch einige kleinere Unzulänglichkeiten, die mir die Rückgabeentscheidung erleichterten.
  • Pros: Preis, Bedienung, Schnelle Berechnung und Routenkorrektur
  • Cons: Kartenmaterial nicht aktuell, Halterung, Montagsproduktionen

TomTom Go 700, trillend onderweg....

  • Excerpt: Zelf ben ik niet kapot van het uiterlijk (niet makkelijk mee te nemen in de binnenzak) maar ook dit systeem maar eens geprobeerd. Instellen gaat erg gemakkelijk, met een paar drukken op het touchscreen is navigatie eenvoudig in te voeren, op voor mij bekende wegen geeft ie niet altijd de meest logische route maar dat is met ieder systeem voor (en we kopen 'm ook niet voor bekende wegen).
  • Pros: Gemakkelijk
  • Cons: Erg groot en zwaar, trilt op standaard zwakke zuignaphouder
