I now don't get lost

J.J., Amazon

  • Summary: Excellent and easy to use, although I have to make sure it's firmly clicked into the holder, as it has often fallen out when I've needed it most.

Only lasted two years!

  • Summary: My TomTom died today: the touch screen is completely unresponsive and a reset has not effect. The touch screen was always quite poor quality: at best it's like using an iPhone with gloves on. Very disappointed with this product's life. Not sure if these models are still sold but be warned.

Good but why did they take out so many of the old good features?

Philip HOWARD-KNIGHT "Phil H-K", Amazon
23 October 2011
  • Summary: My 6 year old GO910 started having some power problems so I decided to upgrade. Looked at the 1005 but was worried by some of the reviews that it wasn't quite ready yet, so opted for the 950. By chance my 910 stopped playing up so I have been running the two side by side for 3 weeks. Overall I like the 950, but not as much as I would have hoped. My 910 has a number of features that do not appear on the 950 and I regret their passing.

Go 950

Hugh Phipps "H X P", Amazon
7 September 2011
  • Summary: This a superb unit well built good large display. The display is touchscreen but a resistive rather than capacitive screen - well up to the job but does need a solid ' poke ' sometimes. Maps are good voice clear and picks up satellites quickly manily due to the fact you can update satellite locations using the online interface so it has updated satellite positions in advance helping it to lock on. A good window mount for it and all in all very pleased.

CAUTION- Safety issue

stevelavelle, Amazon
28 August 2011
  • Summary: This is an excellent product BUT there is a problem with the charger included. The metal ring at the end of the charger fell off after a few months while in use, causing a short in my car's cigarette lighter and a garage bill to have the fuse replaced. I thought this was a one-off on my TomTom GO 950 but exactly the same thing happened within two days use on the TomTom GO 550 I bought for my wife in her car. Avoid until TomTom upgrades the charger.

Friendly but flawed

Alan Jones, Amazon
13 August 2011
  • Summary: Bought the brute to guide me around Holland and Germany, and, later this year, along the West Coast of the US from Seattle South to LA. It replaces an ancient PDA running 'Destinator'. After extensive research and consideration of options like tablet computers (too big and cumbersome) smart phones (expensive to use on Pay as You Go data download terms and with suspect GPS reception qualities) I chose a Tom Tom device because of their reputation.

TOMTOM AT ITS BEST- 950 GO LIVE

bcocarroll@aol.com, Amazon
11 July 2011
  • Summary: Within 10 minutes of opening the Box I had my 950 Go Live working as intended. The purchase was in addition to an existing Go 910 so I was pleased to use the same TOM TOM Home software, albeit I had to use another Email address as the Units are not interchangeable. The Live information on my first journey was spot on and I liked the option of being able to use another route if appropriate. The Lane Guidance is smart if you are not familiar with the road you are on.

A great GPS

Dairyfarm, Amazon
26 January 2011
  • Summary: The Tomtom 950 is a great GPS. The built in GPS in my Merc has broken down; it has trouble receiving satellite signals. My choice was to get it fixed by MB and the cost would be astronomical or to get a portable GPS. But some MB cars, of which mine is one, have athermic windscreens which reflect radio signals. I had tried to use my tomtom go 700 and it could not receive enough radio signals.
