Summary: the window attachment on the t/t won't hold the unit up...it starts to sag after a few bumps... i have to let the t/t ride on the dashboard and use the attaching mechanism to keep it from sliding off...very poor design... i tried to do the update..
Summary: First, the good news: the TomTom Go 910 is a pretty good GPS unit. It will get you where you want to go, the point-of-interest (POI) database seems quite thorough, and having maps that cover both North America and most of western Europe is great for travelers.
Some bad design problems let this down over long term useage

Excerpt: When I originally bought this, it was the top of the range for TomTom - UK, Europe and USA mapping, nice wide screen and loads of features. I also downloaded the speed camera database from the TomTom website (which was a freebie as a result of purchasing the 910) and I also searched the web to find...
Excerpt: Love the product, love the way it works, love how it looks in the car - but reliability is dreadful. Since February 2007 the dealer has replaced the unit 3 times; the latest one failed last week.
Summary: Ok, when I first bought the TomTom GO 910 I thought it was great (even though it doesn't have maps of the Isle of Man, where I lived before going to uni). Screen is huge, directions are great, choice of different voices superb and all the extras you get with it also great.
Summary: C's 1. Maps all are totally out of date. 2. I have it for few weeks by now but Tomtom support still fails from helping me to activate the tomtom traffic using RDS-TMC receiver (it just doesn't work!). 3. Support is very slow and most of the time useless 4.
Summary: With hindsight, and having now read the reviews of this product, I would not have bought the Go 910. I've had the same issues as everyone else... when delivered and powered up it worked fine, but as soon as I connected it to the unit to my PC to update / back up, the unit ceased to work.
Summary: I have experianced no problems with the mounting bracket or the charger. On the first day the unit did freeze but I reset it a couple of times and no problems since. My biggest problem with this product is that the online support is rubbish as is the setup literature.
Summary: As a complete package the 910 falls well below expectations, in fact I struggled to give it two stars. I was surprised to see that other reviewers have rated this item so highly? As a GPS, it is really fast! It routes and re routes amazingly quickly. Probably the fastest I have ever seen!
Summary: This is actually an excellent in-car GPS. It starts up almost instantly, has very good maps and a lot of POIs. It recalculates very fast and has a good user interface. The phone connections worked OK for me.
