Not sure if Tom Toms are as good as they are supposed to be
24 February 2014
Summary: Tom Toms are a bit of an enigma nowadays. I use my Tom Tom a lot and it does what it's supposed to do - hence it's OK. But nowadays GPS devices are so common that you wonder why Tom Tom takes so long to lock on to satellites.
Summary: It's well build. HDTraffic is excellent - which is the main reason I've bought this little device ..but Amazon description is misleading. It does not have 3 years of Live services. It does have 3 years of HD Traffic and only 6months Speed Cameras which costs a 25£ a year so think twice.
Summary: Tomtom is good unfortunately it was not stated that the years free tomtom live updates had expired and if I wanted to continue using this service it would cost me a further £70. So in short your best of buying brand new and getting free lifetime maps and live updatesh
Summary: Using the equipment is fine but the time it is connected to the website for updates, etc. is most irritating. Nothing is simple. It requires a lot of patience and messing around to get things to download properly.
Excellent unit until it goes wrong and needs to be replaced under warranty

Summary: This is a very good Sat Nav, however it has 2 problems. 1. Battey Life and charging. 2. TomTom Warranty replacement. Be very carefull. I am currently experiencing an on-going problem with customer services with regards to my Go Live 1005 World unit.
Brilliant in principle - flawed in quality control and support

Summary: I was happy with the TomTom when I first received it - until I discovered that I could not receive the Live Services which come free for the first year. The TomTom support was very poor - emails sent by one person and then by another who had not read the first....
Summary: This was on Amazon for the bargain price of £143 rather than the usual £248. I would buy it at the cheaper price but not at the higher price. Unless money was not a consideration. Routing wise it is very good but no noticeable difference to my old GO 520.
Summary: As a top of the range model, it appears that Tomtom has gone backwards in that they have dropped certain useful features and at present does not have any computer voices so cannot read out the street names correctly.
Summary: I have had this device for just over 16 months, and except the software update and process which needs to be vastly improved. The device is briliantly when its working!. 8 months in and the battery failed or did not charge, all fine phone support got a RMA sant my device back and got a replacment a...
