Summary: this is the 4th tom tom i have had and is the worst. first 2 stolen, next a 700 series battery connection kept breaking, but the 1000 is a backwards step, and does not compare with previous models both in display and guidance. Trafic info is good whilst I have it FOC, locks in quicker to sat. If you want to buy it from me u r welcome, Switching to Garmin.
Pros: trafic info
Cons: display,up to date maps out of date, wrong instructions.
Summary: My partner broke her existing TomTom cable so we needed a replacement. That was last year some time and this is still doing the trick. Seems a little expensive for a power cable but it works so can't really complain.
Summary: When I started using this I was quite impressed about how to good it was. But my joy was short lived as the device turned out to be unreliable. The biggest problem is that the display freezes in the middle of the journey. Often in the middle of a round about or on spaghetti junction. This defeats the purpose of a satnav as one gets lost more often. The other problem is slow update of the position on the map.
Summary: I bought this item in May 2012. After a year I discovered that what I thought were free lifetime maps and live updates would cost me £75 a year to upgrade.. after another three months the gps no longer held a charge whilst unplugged and now continuously switches itself off after only a minute whilst plugged in. For £180 I am extremely disappointed in what I have got for my money - and will not go back to TomTom.
Summary: Main reason for the purchase was a reliable signal and lots of features with clear instructions. On the whole its a good sat nav but the start up time is quite slow on occasions due to failure to pick up a signal which is a little disappointing. Shame that a charger is not provided as its not always convenient to charge via a PC or lap top.
Summary: These are the genuine TomTom cables. Since the screen mount allows for a cable to stay in the car, I bought this one to keep with the computer for synchronisation purposes. It works. Enough said.
