Excerpt: I have a TomTom Go 710 with a European card. Unfortunately, like any GPS system, it has become out of date although it's only a year old, new junctions etc etc. Can I update my card without buying a new one? Please reply in standard English as I cannot understand, "Coz i dnt 4u guyz gr8t" Pidgin English. Michael.
Summary: I've had my 710 for 6 months now and have used it most days during that time. Overall, it has performed well. The routes it has taken me on are well presented, the sound quality is good and ease of use is excellent. My only criticism is the docking station. The device seems to sit on it under its own weight and consequently does not connect very securely. Knock the desk with anything more than slight force and the connection is lost.
Excerpt: I bought this a couple of months ago and I used it to travel from Italy to England. At the beginning its great having some one tell you where yto go but it does get annoying after a while. However the great thing is you can change the voice of the speaker, tom tom has installed different male and female voices to choose from. The graphics are excellent and are eay to follow. Tom Tom helped us travel easily .
