"Read this before you buy a TomTom GPS!"

tomtomsucks, CNET
11 November 2009
  • Pros: Sure it has a sleek design, automatic map updates and is easy to use. But those selling this product will leave out a major character flaw.
  • Cons: My TomTom 720 Go worked beautifully for one year and six months. Then it decided to retire. There is NO WAY to replace the battery in this system, you CAN NOT purchase the battery at any store and the company DOES NOT stand behind it's product.

"TomTom Company is a slow learner"

Semiretired48, CNET
8 January 2009
  • Pros: Screen size is good, millions of poi's and map colors available, rubberized case.
  • Cons: Inaccurate maps(even on the newest models), customer corrections ignored by TomTom, lousy mount, much shorter than advertised battery life, needlessly complex menu, high dollar map updates w/no guarantees of accuracy, hard to see screen in sunlight.

"Not worth the money nor the service it renders"

number1chaplain, CNET
28 December 2008
  • Pros: 4.3" screen. Device feels and looks very sturdy and professional. Easy to maneuver through software. Amazing user-ability of POIs.
  • Cons: TOMTOM GPS navigation is not as accurate as Garmin GPS. Maps do not look sharp as Garmin/ Sony. Map colors do not display government (Military bases, national parks or zoo's). Check out San Diego Balboa District. No names colors displayed on map.

not worth it...

Overstock
27 December 2008
  • Summary: i got this GPS as a gift for christmas...althought i didn't need one.. I gave it a chance..I love gadgets..but this GPS is not worth the money the person spent on it.... for the amount of money it should at least come with a case!!! or a better suction cup!!! it was easily to figure out but once i started driving to my sister (4 miles) the suction cup fell over 3 time!!!

"Gross error in calculation the route and the time"

gepycoy, CNET
19 December 2008
  • Pros: Nice screen, large icons, large screenboard. I've found a fair price during Black Friday (250.oo).
  • Cons: I travel along with Neverlost from Hertz, enroute from Des Moines, IA to Kimberly,WI the Magellan told me the exact route of 400 miles, the TomTom showed an extra 65 miles!!! selecting Shortest Time. With Shortest distance it was even worst.

"Decent device but maintenance charges are unacceptable."

dan_mccarthy, CNET
20 September 2008
  • Pros: Easy to use, easy to view in car (with third party mount), works well as portable.
  • Cons: 5 weeks after I bought the unit TomTom wanted another $80 to $130 to upgrade the maps - I refused. As time passes it is less able to find destinations, sending me in circles. Next time I will do a better job researching the map maintenance policies.
