Summary: I WOULD NEVER BUY A TOMTOM DEVICE AGAIN. I PURCHASED THIS SAT NAV WITH WORLDWIDE MAPS, IN MARCH 2014. IT NOW DOES NOT WORK IN THE USA (HAVING WOKRED PREVIOUSLY IN THE USA, AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND) I CONTACTED THEIR HELPLINE AND REPORTED THE ERROR MESSAGE. AFTER 3 DAYS I GOT A DISMISSIVE REPLY.
Summary: Good device, but what a cheek that it costs around £60 PER YEAR to keep the maps up to date!!! I paid a big premium for this when I bought it a few years ago, but I never expected it to cost me extra every year. (I can sort of understand there being an annual charge for the Live Traffic).
Summary: Easily the worst Sat Nav I have ever owned, it can not update as it is not recognised by any computer,, Tom Tom know of this problem, but are not able to offer a solution that works, 40% of the time it will not recognise the option to enter Post Codes, it is greyed out and can not be selected.
... journey this was not a cheap unit very very poor i have now bought a £100 Navman and it ...

Summary: i have to date had 2 TomTom go the firs warned of speed cameras as i was level or past them it was eventualy after lots of problems replaced with one that warned of cameras but i was still to close for it to use as warning also it would not take me home even though my street name was clearly visible...
Summary: I would never buy another tom tom go 1005 its just over 18 month old never had an update 1st September tried to do an update not good phoned tom tom they sent a new lead, this also did not work, they now want £80 pounds for a repair ? it work fine but you cannot down load updates for it, stay clear.
Summary: Sorry to say the tomtom go live 1005 has major issues. Just done a trip from Cheshire to Eastbourne it took me all over the place. It usually is 288 miles from my house to Eastbourne at 380 miles we arrive. I went straight round to halfords and got the go 60.
Summary: I paid good hard earned money for this tom tom it worked for a while then didn't , it would not turn on and when eventually it would come on it would flicker and the screen would not react to put address's in and it would freeze etc etc..
Summary: What a complete waste of money. I had a Go750 which worked all the time every time. I thought I would up grade to a better device. Enter the 1005!! What a joke. Constantly fails to up date, the little round circle traffic indicator just spins round and round and round.
