She is happy

Thunderbird, Amazon
22 January 2012
  • Summary: I bought this for the wife and she is happy, How ever I did buy it used and the seller never told me the screen jumps around to different screens, So after a little research on the web I found out dirt gets behind the gray plastic bezel and if I take a credit card or license and scrap under the gray...

Um...well...maybe...

  • Summary: I'm actually writing this as I'm scouring reviews of other GPS units to replace my 720, which I've had just under a year. I'd actually really prefer to just be keeping the one I've got, but a slew of problems are forcing me to remedy its deficiencies.

Glad I bought it

Christopher S., Newegg
8 October 2009
  • Summary: In a Head to Head I pick this one easily over the similar priced Garmin. Quality is a tie, usability is a tie, Functions and fun extras Tom Tom ruled the day. -Not that I'm bad mouthing the Garmin... it was good, just this one was excellent.
  • Pros: Very impressed with the features and functions, the Bluetooth and FM TX is pretty nifty for a budget price and so far is working really well with no confusion in setting it up. The S/W upgrade went very smoothly (unlike a certain Garmin I recently bought for my In-Laws...) Excellent freebies and ...
  • Cons: Suction cup for windshield not as nice as the similar priced Garmin with the "lever" suction but did hold well once I cleaned my disgusting windshield off!

Good dea

Anonymous, Newegg
4 October 2009
  • Summary: Good value... takes place of multiple devices in car, but the MP3 player and bluetooth speakerphone have a few shortcomings minor. For the MP3 player you need an SD card as the 720 has limited internal memory - which is also a plus as you just take the SD card with you when you want to add/delete...
  • Pros: Came in "as new" condition. All-in-one unit takes place of MP3 player and bluetooth handsfree - less gadgets to fuss around with in car, less wires. Always gets me where I need to go. Ability to download phone contacts into unit's bluetooth handsfree makes for a nice "heads up" display to see who...
  • Cons: Short battery life (not an issue - I keep mine plugged in), outdated maps, sometimes prefers to go down side streets rather than nearby highways. Bluetooth speakerphone is mediocre at best - hard to hear both sides of conversation at highway speeds - unless you're stopped. MP3 player has limited ...

Great Functionality

Anonymous, Newegg
1 September 2009
  • Summary: Just remember with this being a refurb that the maps will be old and the Tomtom map update guarantee will have expired.
  • Pros: Hands free phone connection is pretty good. Voice recognition is quite accurate and even if it doesn't understand you completely, it still gives other choices that do match what you said. Mapshare is the sole reason for going with Tomtom. Being able to change map errors is important for me since ...
  • Cons: Tomtom maps.....I heard they were bad and I believe they truly are the weakest link. I had a Delphi before this one and it would put you at someones front door, Tomtom is lucky to get you within a 1/4 mile at times. Unfortunately since I bought a refurb, the map was 2 years old and Tomtom will no...

Bad is Really Bad...

Milos V., Newegg
28 August 2009
  • Summary: Some better priced Garmin device.
  • Pros: - Overall it has a lot of Features, like Bluetooth, different routes picking, speaking street names, etc. - Got it with 3 years warranty. - Price was very affordable for the good branded unit with that many features - It will get you where you need if you have exact address and device knows about...
  • Cons: Unfortunately lot of bad reviews are well deserved. I'll just list some bad things from my limited (!) experience with the device - Battery doesn't hold at all - Street names are not always pronounced!!! - It knows to say "keep right" on the "motorway" when it really means keep straight, or it wa...

My mistake...

Ryan M., Newegg
10 August 2009
  • Summary: I'd shop around before buying a TomTom product. Not the worst product ever, but I would consider others.
  • Pros: I wrote a review below for the 720, but I actually have the 920T and not the 720.
  • Cons: I'm sure the problems are the same.

When it works....

Ryan M., Newegg
9 August 2009
  • Summary: I have had to deal with tech support A LOT in the time I have owned it and they are very nice and helpful...I'm just sick of talking to them. Once they had me format the and wipe the unit clean because I was having so many problems. Long story short that was not a good idea.
  • Pros: Bought the unit new about a year and half ago. I purchased the TomTom 720T with Traffic. Since then it has been a love hate relationship. The unit has all the latest bells and whistles and for the most part works as advertised...when it works. The traffic was supposed to be a free trial, but it e...
  • Cons: Great idea, bad implementation. The software, both on the unit and on your computer is touchy at best. Out of the box the unit worked great, but TomTom has a very comprehensive update system via your computer. Well, some updates came along about 5 months into ownership and the software has gotten...

Refurb cautions

Law o., Newegg
28 July 2009
  • Summary: I guess most people will subscribe map updates. I will, too eventually.
  • Pros: I has a lot of cool features. This is an update of a 2-egg review I wrote on 12/30/08
  • Cons: It took 7 months to learn that my maps would have been a year old on the "new" refurb and that TomTom does not make maps current for refurbs sold after 2008/12/01. (I bought on 12/01, but Newegg did not ship for about a week, and my re-issued invoice is dated 12/05, so TomTom thought I don't qual...
