Summary: When I first used this system, I was delighted by the integration of services functionality. However, I've found map updates and services costs are very high and offer poor value for money.I am also shocked by the inaccuracy of certain aspects such as speed restrictions in even the latest map...
Summary: Firstly, it didn't work. Wouldn't download the maps, why do TomTom send them out without maps, etc? I spent several hours trying to link the SatNav with my account with TomTom and trying to download the maps. Secondly - it's big. Huge.
Summary: Went TomTom as the Garmin we had before had a really bad search facility. Indeed, the TomTom has a great search, and the Live information is very useful at busy times. BUT, battery packed in *just* out of warranty, which is extremely annoying and totally avoidable.
Summary: When it worked the Live Services facility was excellent. The problem is, with me anyway, the programme is totally unreliable. I renewed it in July for around £50 on line, since when it has never worked on a car journey.
Summary: The new range of Tom Tom's now connect as a 'device' rather than an external drive. I couldn't get this to connect so Live services and the map updates couldn't be used, as a result ive returned this product.
When working it's great. Updateing-Waste of time/money

Summary: Every now and then I need to upgrade maps. Naturally, but at the cost of my wits? I hate it, I hate it, I hate it. It takes hours to fiddle with connections and it never seems to connect to the Tomtom server. I just don't have the energy any more. Support? Customer service...What's that??
OMG - I really didn't think any company could do something this awful !!!

Summary: I am truely baffled how someone hasn't lost their job at tomtom ! trying to get a new unit to work with their update service is the most horrible user experience I have ever had. How have the developers not asked someone to come in and then watch them try to use it.
Summary: Think carefully before you buy this top of the range unit from TomTom. It does not have Itenary planning, so if you are used to use that, forget this unit as you can only create a route via 3 stops.
