Summary: This is my second GO 920 (1st one was stolen in a vehicle break-in). Once you play around with it, the GPS works pretty well - I really like the extensive POI database that you can update and share with others (and get their updates) which makes this very handy in unfamiliar area.
Summary: The unit functions well, and I have used it on three occasions. The best feature that I like is the handsfree calling. The sound is great, and the party on the other end stated that it sounded fine. The only thing I haven't been able to master is driving without a destination. I have to pick a route, then cancel it out while it is setting up the route. I didn't find a way to just go directly to the map.
Summary: As many of the other reviews say the 920T is feature rich and many of them work very well. The satellite lock on is excellent, I've used the Navigation very successfully in UK and USA cities. It has flaws though, the menus are clunky, I've never found how to set speed preferences and as with most Sat Navs it can bizarrely recommend local routes several miles longer than the ideal. What really annoys me is it's advertised as covering Europe - it doesn't.
Excerpt: We where of to the States and Canada, and wanted a sat nav for the 3 weeks fro our 100 mile trek, to hire one with our rental car was going to cost in the region of £150 so we decided to buy one instead, we bought it for just £285 on line from Halfords, and it has been brilliant. All the world maps are preinstalled, we told the machine before we left the uk the destinations we where going to friends and families address and logged them as recent destinations, we did this...
Pros: Intuative, good display, easy to use, Great design and interface
Summary: I have had my Tom Tom 920 for a couple on weeks now. I am very impressed with the functions especially the speech input for addresses. However, be warned. The voice recognition software will only work on the maps for one continenant. ie If purchased in the UK it will work on the European maps, but not North America, likewise, if purchased from the US the voice recognition will work for those maps but not Europe.
Excerpt: Fantastic product which is great for all types of journeys. The 'advanced planning' also allows one to browse a map of the route before the journey begins and the image viewer and mp3 player can keep one entertained on the jourmeys. The passenger can also operate the device using the bluetooth remote. The traffic receiver, with lifetime subscription to traffic updates, is useful. An FM transmitter is also featured, which can be used to broadcast music to the car stereo.
Pros: fm transmssion, bluetooth with remote, voice recognition, music player and image viewer
Cons: No maps for the whole world, no maps for sea navigation .
Summary: Ive owned a few tomtom devices. tomtom One, tomtom Go and this one. I've also owned a sony unit, but returned it because it was hard to use. Anyway this is a great device. Allows me to travel all the way from london to poland without a problem. Eastern european maps are included! Most units say europe, but they mean WESTERN EUROPE. Big difference! Updating the device is easy has it has a dock, and supports vista. All updates are free as well!!
Excerpt: The TOMTOM GO 920T is an essential for people who travel both short distances and long distances in the car. I paid £353 for this beauty. I'm usually very wary, on what Im purchasing if its in the hundreds range as I want a good quality product if im going to splash out. I feel very safe buying tomtom product however as it has a very good reputation efficient navigation devices. And the GO 920T is no exception.
Summary: What makes a TomTom really good: First of all updates. They're really often and it is a most important thing (maps, software, add-ons) It is powerful, user-friendly and fully customizable. Comparing to 910 (also have) is smaller, faster and more energy efficient. It hasn't got a hard disc (in my opinion good- built in memory is enough) 910 was more as a "multimedia toy" but this was a wrong way. TomTom realized that and back again to making a GPS not a mp3 player...
