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: The sat-nav itself is great; the lower rating is down to the missing in car charger, a quite essential part of the product. Very disappointed I had to order one separately. There was a USB charger for computer but the windscreen mount had a different connection.
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.
Summary: It seems to work OK. Currently it is selecting some local routes that do not appear to make a lot of sense but that could just be down to the software selecting what it thinks will be the quickest route - so still evaluating that aspect.
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.
