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 have found the Go 930T excellent but for being very slow in logging into satellites. For earlier versions e.g. Go 920 you could update the satnav using TomTom's QuickGPSfix program after which you would find a satellite in well under a minute. For the latest GO 940 Live you can use QuickGPSfix if you pay £7-99 a month for a bundle of services.
Summary: The tmc is absolute rubbish. It has not given me any true traffic incidents as of yet, tom tom said they had cured this problem with the updated receiver,tomtom i can tell you it does not work correctly and is totally inaccurate. I am considering sending my unit back as ITEM NOT AS DESCRIBED under the sale of goods act. Why call it 930 traffic when it clearly does not give you accurate traffic in information??????? Also tomtom you clearly state 5 hours battery life!!!!
avoid unless you want to spend hours on your computer

Summary: Had the unit a few hours, carried out a backup and copied all files to my computer. Did an update many changes needed. All downloaded. Another backup done. Then found out 6 digit post codes did not work. Download a file from Tomtom for this to work. Another backup done. Then checked with TomTom website to see if the maps were upto date, they were not.
Summary: é sicuramente un oggetto che può servire, sopratutto ai possessori di mezzi di locomozione, quali automobile, motocicletta e anche bici volendo. l'unica pecca è che il software è un pò instabile. mi si è bloccato almeno tre volte in una sola settimana. problema memoria credo. è sicuramnete qualcosa legata alla memoria di allocazione (una sottospecie di ram del navigatore). mi segnala scitta di errore del caricamento dei file. ed è anche molto sensibile al calore.
Pros: bello a vedersi e quando funziona funziona bene
