a std 2012 model will serve you better than a high end outdated device.

  • Summary: i never liked tomtom, but this model being top of the line in 08 i decided to give it a shot, obviously for a 4yr old device the price was sufficient but the features are basic, and it took a while to set up, i like the way it looks but theres just no bang for your buck!

poor customer support

  • Summary: good GPS by itself, but its nothing without maps and here we are: be prepared to pay for everything. I paid for this receiver about $500 few years ago and now I have to pay them $40 every year for map updates, then you have to pay one more time for europe map updates... Blood suckers... I selling tomtom now, newer again.

Could have been a lot better

Arthur Ferguson "Hank", Amazon

  • Summary: I was enormously disapointed with this unit. Viewing the screen during the day is a real chalenge. There is no contrast at all and the screen washes out. Nite viewing is OK.

Died within 6 months

Bay Bridge Sue "junior executive troublemaker", Amazon
13 September 2009
  • Summary: This is an update to the review below - the display died in less than 6 months. I was thrilled, but now I'm flat pissed with a $300+ GPS that is worthless. Flat dead. It renders the unit unusable, and I am so highly disappointed - the only worse part is where do I go for warranty info? I said below it works, but as of now, that's gone - it sux. Sorry, but for all the international utility, it really bites bad. I used one of these overseas and decided I realy liked it.

"Plenty of bugs, stutters"

jwhou, CNET
12 January 2009
  • Pros: IQroutes information are collected from TomTom users and hence cover streets other than the ones with traffic sensors. The remote is far easier than trying to hit a spot on the screen while the car is moving about.
  • Cons: Buggy, reboots often, user interface is inconsistent. There's no way to select the quick menu from the remote control. No breadcrumb feature. Doesn't announce reaching waypoints other than end destination.

TomTom GO 930

M.Carlston, Rate it all!
11 December 2008
  • 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.

What are they thinking

L. Balk, Amazon
16 August 2008
  • Summary: I purchased this product for the following reasons. Both North American and European maps included for a reasonable price. The ability to route by shortest distance, lease use and most use of freeways, pedestrian routes and the sleek design. I unpacked the unit and was happy with the overall interface of the unit and the ability to customize the details that would display on the screen. After that is when it all fell apart.

Bluetooth problem

Mrs. Lynne D. Roberts, Amazon
24 January 2009
  • Summary: This is my first Sat Nav and I thought I was buying the best on the market. The set up was a little fiddly but went well until I tried to pair it with my Blackberry Pearl 8801. The guide says they are compatible and although my phone could see the TomTom it wouldn't pair with it. I've spent ages e mailing the support line and resetting the TomTom to no avail.
