a std 2012 model will serve you better than a high end outdated device.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

Too many flaws

Hyperboloid, Amazon
8 December 2009
  • Summary: This is my third TomTom GO, and my last one. Cons: - Maximum display brightness is much darker than on my GO 920 - Bluetooth remote takes 10 sec to connect - Bluetooth remote works for the first three times after turning the device on, then no longer. You have to reset the unit (!) for it to work again, very annoying! - One button on the Bluetooth remote requires you to push it hard in order for it to detect you pressed the button.

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.

Pretty good, not disappointed, but still room for some improvement.

M. Brennan, Amazon
26 February 2009
  • Summary: Like it overall, but it takes some getting used to to really understand it and a few features aren't as good as one hopes. It's a decent value for the money; I thought comparable units from Garmin were far pricier. It dost most things well, but has a few oddities and things to be aware of. The voice recognition for spoken addresses is generally very good. The only time it let us down was one time where I was looking for "W. California" street.

Many high-end features but disappointing quality

W. Robertson, Amazon
5 February 2009
  • Summary: My 930t came with the wrong traffic antenna - the one I got was designed to work in Europe but not the US (and I live in the US). 3 calls to tech support, then I must pay to send the bad antenna and they will send me the correct one. Many 930s (including mine) have developed a voice 'stuttering' problem (the device stutters as it announces directions and road names). Also the refresh rate of the map screen can get very slow.

Defective out of the box - they make you pay shipping

M. Carlston, Amazon
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.
