Summary: This is certainly the best navigation device that you can buy, when it is working. However, I am unable to recommend it, due to poor reliability. Another family member owned the previous model, which was brilliant for just over a year, and then it stopped working completely.
If TomTom device fails due to manufacturer's fault, TomTom will make you pay at least 105 Euros for manufacturer's fault!

Summary: I bought my device in October 2012. My TomTom started to have connection problems with PC when I needed to update maps. In January 2014 for no reason my Go Live 820 4.3" stopped being recognized completely by my PC or Mac, although was navigating good.
Summary: Excellent sat nav as usual from Tom Tom. I use it both for pleasure and work and it's never let me down. My only criticism is that it's difficult to use the suction disc anywhere other than the windscreen without buying another accessory, but that's a minor point and otherwise I'm delighted with it
Decent, perhaps a bit expensive though considering the alternatives

Summary: Excellent, but it does sometimes lose connection to the live traffic updates. Having heard that when the 12 months is up and these fail to do an update after a hefty cost, I'd be inclined to either just buy another brand new, or a cheaper model.
Warns you about hold ups and offers alternative routes!

Summary: TomTom's have been around for a while and everyone knows what the basic ones can do. This one is worth the extra money for 'Go Live'. Anyone who regularly uses our motorway system will find this piece of equipment invaluable.
Summary: Wish I had learnt more about Sat-Navs before I purchased it, but I've no complaint, except for the fact that its not easy to set-up, and has the potential to keep you regularly forking out additional chunks of cash. Does what it says on the tin - that's that!
Summary: I bought this one thinking it would be good, as an upgrade over the others, however have had so many issues with it. It worked very well until the 1 year free subscription ran out. Then, on the day it finished, it wouldn't connect to GPS.
