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.
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.
Summary: After receiving two 'dead on arrival' units from Amazon, my third unit still does not perform satisfactorily after months of calls to TomTom support. 1. The unit crashes any Windows 7 x64 PC that I connect it to (blue screen of death). 2.
Summary: Let me begin by saying excellent service from Amazon as usual. Now where to start with the product. I read all the reviews and saw the 1 star reviews and thought that perhaps they were unlucky but I soon realised I was wrong. Poor start up and setup, not helped by lack of instructions in the manual.
Summary: bought the TomTom 950Live back in August - have had problems all the way with it - such a device should not need this level of support - each evening i seem to have to spend time responding to service desk tickets that i have open with TomTom - last week the device was in such a mess i was...
Don't ignore the bad reviews - TomTom 950 is awful

Summary: I wish I hadn't ignored the bad reviews on this product. I previously owned a Tom Tom One, which although basic, did the job perfectly well. Wanting to upgrade to get features such as European mapping, Voice Control, Bluetooth Handsfree and Live Traffic, I decided to upgrade to the TomTom 950.
Summary: I recently had to change from my trusty TomTom Go 500 because of the arrival of a iPhone which can not be used for data with the traffic service. I, mistakenly, thought if I bought the top of the range model it would be the best option. Well I am on my third 950 and they've all been rubbish.
Summary: If you have hours to waste then the Tomtom 950 Go Live is the product for you. You can enjoy such problems as the live services malfunctioning; doing a factory reset and then finding that all the screens display in Swedish; your subscription to live services telling you are subscribed till September...
Woeful support, unreliable, slow, 2 months and never been 100%

Summary: I had a 940 Live for about 18 months. Had masses of trouble with that, ended up re-installing all the firmware a couple of times. Bought the 950 when they were offering 12 months included Live services. Needed new maps so it made some sense. Hugely disappointing.
