Summary: Having only owned one GPS device in my life and that was a hand held, I didn't know what to expect from a vehicle GPS, boy was I surprised, first off it works right out of the box just plug it in and your ready to go!
Summary: The Tomtom 710 is a great gps. I have to say it is really easy to use put a zip code and address all from the touch screen and plots a course either shortest or fastest. I would say the tomtom is similar to mapquest or google maps.
Summary: It had a very good price/fuctions ratio. Functions include hand-free, bluetooth, radio, etc. However, this GPS unit has some software issues. Some of them relate to the different models of Tomtom Go 510/710/910. Therefore, some functions are availible ONLY on 910 and screw the functionality of 710.
Summary: great for the traveling worker use it daily and love the fact it keeps my speed in check the only real problem i have is the fact that it dont understand truck routes or low overpasses so i have to constantly recheck the routeing so i dont get into a real sticky situation
Summary: I seen the tom tom here on E-bay.It was one of the cheaper ones so i got it for work.When i got it i could not get it to read the sd card for the map.So then they sent a new sd card and still nothing.And then i seen they charged for all upgrades.So then i seen the Garmin and got it.It has free...
Summary: They sent me a unit that did not work. When I asked for a replacement or to repair the one they sent; they stopped communicating with me. btw The serial # was partiality scraped off! I'm now the proud owner of a $85.00 GPS that doesn't work. I went and bought one at my local Wal-Mart.
Summary: I've owned a few TomToms prior to this one and have loved them all (so do others as the last 2 were stolen from my vehicles. The free map updates help me rate the TomTom at the top of my list (I've been a legal computer retailer since 1981 and recommend all types of electronics)until now.
Summary: This is a ½ inch larger than other typical mid-tier competitors. Also, this is a wide screen format. * Greatly improved GPS performance * Hundreds of features and software improvements * The new GO range comes with the free software application TomTom HOME.
Summary: Very happy with the unit and its operation. It is a bit of a chunky item, could be more svelte. It did switch off on one occasion requiring a system reboot, but this was simple with the help of a brief Google enquiry as to how to do this. One main gripe, hence 4 stars, is the windscreen mount.
