a std 2012 model will serve you better than a high end outdated device.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

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.
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.
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: Directions lead me wrong many times! Sometimes many blocks off. Once it even had me go in circles almost like the thing was playing a joke on me. The other day it even said, "you have arrived at your destination" while I was on a 4 lane road and the place was still a turn away further down. Also the arrows change directions on you out of nowhere. I'm not sure if the device is confused or it has some major glitches in it.
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.
Summary: Zunächst hatte ich ein Tomtom 910, dieses Gerät hatte einen zu großen Body. Deshalb habe ich auf den 930T getauscht. Der Neue sollte von den Technischen Daten eine Akkulaufleistung von bis zu 5 Stunden hergeben. Also noch eine Stunde mehr als der Vorgänger, der die Zeiten auch nach fast zwei Jahren und kurzen Liegezeiten annähernd traf! Dies traf für den 930 jedoch in keinem Fall zu.
