Summary: After owning and using various GPS devices for many years, this seemed like a nice step forward. I will never know as the device never worked. It crashed again and again as I attempted to start it for the first time. After spending many hours working at it with TomTom customer support, they reached the conclusion I came to in the first 10 minutes - the device was defective.
Summary: Got a 930 a few days ago. My GPS experience is limited to what I have used in rental cars. I have used both Garmin and Magellan(Hertz-NeverLost)in rental cars.
First-doesnt work right out of the box. The maps that it comes with are worthless. Unit doesnt have enough onboard memory to even accept the updated operating system. You must by an SD card to load the updates and maps. You must buy the maps online and they are $79 of the US-Canada.
Summary: I've used the GO 930 for about a month and am satisfied overall. I love the feature that allows me to back into the departure time, based on anticipated length of travel (Of course one has to anticipate rush hours, etc. and add time on for that). The maps are up to date, and the graphics are good. I would have liked to be able to change the font size for street names.
Summary: we used this device in europe. instructions easy to understand. user-friendly. totally amazed by its accuracy of roadways, tolls, hotels, location of gas stations and restaurants. however it failed us in Milan to note that the Car Museum was closed for renovation prior to our arrival to the museum. we lost some valuable time that afternoon touring Milan, Italy.
Summary: I love, love, love my TomTom 930T. My husband and I bought the 920 in May '08 and later exchanged it for the upgraded 930 for the extra features! We've used our TomTom all over the country and there is no question we would be lost without it.
I've only noticed I had a problem seeing the screen when I had polarized sunglasses on. When I take those off for a sec, I can see the screen perfectly, even when it's sunny! By the way, the screen is huge.
Summary: This item was listed as "refurbished". Fair enough. It blew up about the 10th time I plugged it in to use it. I realised that there was no warranty, and I was prepared to pay for the repair to be done by TomTom. However, I needed a receipt from the seller to show that it was legally mine. I emailed the seller twice asking for one. Never even got an acknowledgement, let alone a receipt. A useless piece of kit from a useless trader.
Summary: I bought this product because it was on special offer in argos. At the same time Iwas thinking about a garmin upgrade and I wish I done that. I live in Northern Ireland and the maps are ropey to say the least eg directions to roads that dont exist or roads still under construction. The points of intrest are not very good either. It seems that tom tom intended to use this mapshare for the punters to do their work for them.
