Summary: I have been using the Go Live 1005 for a year now and have been very pleased with it and it does everything expected of it. The big but comes when trying to renew my subscription to the Live Services. Despite numerous attempts the updated download never got past 3% download before freezing. After two days I am coming to the point of giving up.
Summary: The unit itself is great, very clear screen, great features, very quick to respond to changes in route, and/or supply an updated route when the road ahead has a holdup. My main concern is connecting to the web to update maps etc. If you follow the instructions it doesn't work, and customer services only solution to every problem is "use a different web browser". I did eventually get it to work, and the latest maps are very up to date.
Summary: I was very impressed with the product and in particular the after sales support from Halfords. I had a few issues with setting up my new account withTomTom as it did not recognise my Mac. The staff put me in touch with TomTom (now a local call) who resolved my issue. Lisa at TomTom walked me through it and I checked a week latter that my maps were in fact registered. I would recommend buying from Halfords as their after sales service is second to none. Very well done!
Summary: A good quality and good looking product- Pricy but has lots of functions - Takes way too long to update and needs to be updated constantly by the looks of it - Takes ages to get Signal for Live Services
Summary: I bought it to use in Europe, USA, Australia & South Africa. It does what the spec says faultlessly. The level of detail over such a huge area is amazing, and I can't fault it. Easy to use, and set up. I am not a techie,and even I can use it.
Conclusion: The TomTom GO LIVE 1005 World is a great device. It has a large screen that is easy to read. The menuing and usage modes are easy to learn and use. The hardware is well designed and manufactured to a high standard.
Summary: Tom Tom quite clearly have the marketplace with regards to Sat Nav and this is no exception at all. We bought this simply as it is World Wide mapping and we do travel an awful lot. I have to say that without this on our recent trip to the Scottish highlands we would have been lost. Instructions are clear and it does all the thinking for you. I am so pleased that I bought this.
