Summary: Bought the TomTom Go 920 just a year ago and took it to Germany with me, worked beautifully. The device lived up to all the hype in all the five star reviews. Exactly one year from the date of purchase, during a drive through an unfamiliar part of Frankfurt, my TomTom started changing screens by itself and no matter how much I poked at the screen the darn thing just kept flipping screen randomly.
So-so, Voice breaks up rendering device widely unusable
19 January 2009
Summary: This is my second TomTom GO (I also own the GO 910). The unit basically works fine, but there is one BIG drawback: when using a computer voice (so the unit reads out loud names of streets and cities) the voice only works with very fundamental patterns of intersections and exits. As soon as you navigate through more complex intersections the voice breaks up completely. You can not understand what she is saying. Very annoying.
Summary: My review is based in comparison to the Garmin 370 and Magellan 3140 GPS units. Whil each unit that I've owned has different bells and whistles, the most important feauture is its routing and user friendliness. The 920, btw, had the latest software/internet updates installed (purchased June 2008). 1.) Based on this, the routing of the TomTom 920 is HORRENDOUS. As other users have mentioned on other sites, the TomTom 920 **loves** LEFT TURNS for some reason.
Summary: Hawaii addresses, perhaps the majority, are of the form 46-047 Kamehameha Hwy. That s a bank. It's in the Points Of Interest that way. There is no "-" key on the TomTom house number screen. There's no other way to enter the address. So I both called and emailed their customer service. The advice I got was to fax their USA HQ, which I did a week ago. Two faxes. No response.
Summary: Comments about TomTom GO 920 Automobile Navigator: I misread the features - "voice" does not mean text to speech, which tells you street names. Not so important when you know where you are. But when you don't - like New York City, for example, "left in 200 yards" doesn't do it.
Pros: Easy To Read, Easy To Set Up, Simple Controls
Summary: I have had one of these since January 08. It's performance has been terrible and the maps are BAD out of date. The first unit I had started freaking out and telling me to turn on non existing roads, freezing up, recalculating MANY times in a short span with no logical reason to do so. It took a LONG time and MANY calls to the company to get authorization to return the unit.
