Summary: I've had the GO700 for about 2 years. I feel it compares favorably with Garmin Units and is better than most factory installed units I've used. Since the maps were updated last year exit names as well as numbers are displayed and maps are more comprehensive (less missing roads near new...
Summary: Pros: +Pleasant interface. Very well polished product. +Only touchscreen, no buttons (except power and eject) +Catches satellites pretty quickly. It was catching satellites from within my bedroom which was particularly impressive +You can set route a certain way: ie avoid toll charges, use highways,...

Summary: Despite other reviews, this gps nav isn't that bad at all. The menu system isnt as intuitive as a garmin, but overall it's pretty comprehensive and easy to learn. So far I've used a toyota nav, a garmin 2720, and the tomtom go 700.
Read all the reviews and decide yourself, I guess.

Summary: I have had a 700 TomTom for about five months. I actually won it from an electronics magazine I subscribe to...Anyway, I love it. I also have Magellan 760's on work vehicles, but much prefer the TomTom. Here's why; TomTom has no buttons. All touch screen. Beautiful.
Summary: This product was purchase for a trip that we are making the last of August of 2006. But I have found that in setting the TomTom Go 700 up that it was every easy to get started.

Summary: This is really helpful if you are not familiar with the area you will be traveling through. You have to be careful with picking the fastest route feature because sometimes it will plan routes with really back roads rather than taking the expressways and sometimes this gets unnerving.
Summary: Very easy to use. Menus are very user-friendly. Works very well - I've used for about a month and it has not led me astray. Occasionally, it will give you a less efficient route (based on test runs to known destinations), but it gets you to your destination.
Summary: I've been using the Tom Tom 700 for 8 months now and have been very pleased with most of the functionality. Pro's 1. Routing clear and generally accurate, both in Northern Virginia and recently on a business trip to St Louis 2. Instructions clear and screen well laid out 3.
Summary: Having used built-in GPS systems for several years, we were pleasantly surprised at the performance of this product. It has most of the features of the best systems and clearly stands ahead of some. Our latest built-in is in a BMW 5 series, and the TomTom beats it hands-down!
Summary: Tom Tom is one of the newer GPS makers to do business in the US, and I was very pleased to get a chance to try out the GO 700. First, a discussion of basic usability: it's very good! The box promises that you can just turn it on and go, and it's true.
