Summary: When it works, it does what is expected. It is not dependable. It just wont boot up if it's been sitting awhile, even when plugged into a power source. I guess TomTom figures their precious device is too good to use the power source when the battery is drained. Their way of saying, 'keep it charged.
Summary: I had purchased a GO730 the unit is great, the problem is the warranty. I have bought this product new, and after 5 mos. had a problem with software. The pages start moving all by itself, this became a problem especially when your driving and not know the area and need the driving map.
POI Limited, UI Unfriendly, Poor Battery Life, No Side-of-street Notification

Summary: I really wanted to like this TomTom. When you compare most TomTom models to their competitors, at first glance it looks like the TomTom does more - but what I've found is that in many cases TomTom doesn't do these things well. I've had my TomTom for about 7 months now.
Summary: Mostly I like the unit but it has some distinct problems. Like all GPS units it will occasionally bring you to the wrong place but it does seem to do better than some others I have tried. My main problem is that the firmware has glitches that significantly affect the devices operation.
Things to know about TomTom map update service plan

Summary: I bought this unit about a year ago. This equipment is okay but their service sucks. The handsfree calling is almost useless.. I tried to use it but the party I called says they cannot hear me well.. so I stopped using it and bought a separate hands free device.
Summary: Screen rendition of the map and location is fine. Once you get a destination into the unit, the routes seem fine, and directions are easy enough to follow. That much works well. Pronunciation of streets and cities is not very good. For example highway 101 is `highway one west one.
Summary: I bought the tomtom because of the user map updates, but returned it for several reasons: 1. you can only have 48 favorites. I travel a lot - it's not enough 2. when you download the user updated maps, it erases your favorites 3.
Summary: Beware! If you buy this unit now, do not upgrade the application software to 8.300. Here's why, I ordered it on 9/12/09 and received it the next morning:) The directions said to connect to Tomtom through the Tomtom software that automatically installs when you plug it into your PC.
Summary: TomTom continues to show weak support for the US market with its software that touts fantastic features that are not available in this country, which is a constant reminder of the wasted potential of this device. The interface is mostly usable, with big buttons to click on using the touch screen.
Liked it better than Garmin Nuvi But it DID NOT last!

Summary: I have used a PPC related GPS software program as well as the Garmin Nuvi which my daughter owns. This product is by far more superior in comparison to the PPC program. Routing is very reliable and more accurate than that of Garmin, though Garmin's attachment to the windscreen works better.
