Summary: I purchased this Tom Tom for my fiance as a Christmas gift. After using it for a month, it unexplicably died. It would not turn on even with a full charge. I received a replacement from Overstocked, but as with the first one, the replacement also died with the same problem.
Summary: 1st off when I got the unit home, I went to synch it with my computer. It said to enter the 'code' so I could upgrade to the updated maps... yeah the 'code' was old and it wouldn't allow me to upgade. They wanted me to purchase the upgrade maps for almost $100 bucks. The until already cost me alot of $$. Now I've had this for almost 6 months and I find it very difficult to see in the sunlight. I've tried it in different locations on my windshield.
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...it was so confusing that i must have selected the wrong update...anyway...the update caused the t/t to drop dead...hmmmm...what kind of update is that... anyway...for $450, i just want to plug the thing in and "go"...
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. However, the basic GPS features are marred by an incredible number of design flaws that make the unit basically unusable, especially if you sprang for some of the other features like playing MP3s or making...
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 loads of other freebies to tell me where my nearest Tesco, Sainsburys, John Lewis, Halfords, Petrol Station et al were wherever I was.
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. My recommendation would be to wait for their new 920 -- the web is full of people having similar experiences with the 910, I'm guessing the reason why they announced the 920 in advance of having it in the stores.
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. Incidently, I bought mine from Dabs.com for £250, cheapest I could find. Don't be too bowled over by the fact it has an MP3 player in it though.
Summary: I purchased this item very early when in came out. It stayed in the box for quite a while until my first journey to Liverpool from London. It took me there safely but stopped playing music on the way for no apparent reason. On return my computer geek son connected it to computer and fixed whatever the problem was.
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. I have used TomTom's traffic info and weather and both were good (one month on the roads of Europe). Now for the bad parts: You can't use it in the car! The car mount is a joke.
Summary: Habe das Gerät gekauft weil auch Karte von USA mit darauf ist. Leider funktioniert durch das erhebliche Gewicht die Halterung (Stromversorgung ) nicht gut. Mit Gummibändern habe ich es ausgeglichen. Soliegt es jetzt bei mir im Schrank, denn ich habe jetzt Go 930. Aber beide Geräte sind zu teuer, ich würde jetzt ein Tom Tom XL kaufen. Für eine gute Navigation reicht das.
