Great Product

Steve Fox, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought the Tom Tom as I had a temporary company car which didn't have a built in GPS. It took some time for initial setup whilst connected to my PC, but since then it has been faultless. Several drives down through France and Germany have been easy anf in the UK it picks up traffic problems early and suggests alternative routes (although I don't always accept the proposed faster route).

Reliable and accurate with a wide range of options.

  • Excerpt: I bought this one to replace my old one. Easy to set up by following all the on screen instructions once converted to your computer. Once the TomTom programme is on your computer it is easy to update, Etc. You do need to go through all the options to ensure you have it set up to your own personal tastes. It also has a pretty good help section. Mine came with a free year of map updates, HD traffic and speed cameras. After this you can either subscribe or not.
  • Pros: Reliability, "fast and responsive", "nice size screen", "Accurate routing"
  • Cons: "Costs of extra subscription"

  • Summary: Got this after having previous sat nav stolen! Good clear graphics and nice easy screen buttons to use. Like the many functions offered but have only used a selected few.

I wanted to love it - but its only OK, it does have some great features, but also some great flaws.

Annakin, Amazon

  • Summary: I have used TomTom sat navs for the last 7 years - I had one of the original huge ones with a small screen. I purchased this sat nav to replace an ageing TomTom One, hoping the live services would change my life and reduce my time spent in traffic jams. Navigation: Is still, in my opinion, one of the best out there. Certainly better than my Garmin for my motorcycle. It does, however, have a love affair with motorways at all times of the day or night.

A DISASTER OF A SAT NAV DEVICE

M. Frizelle "Mike of Sheffield", Amazon
6 March 2014
  • Summary: I'll start by saying I have been a satisfied user of TomTom sat nav devices for around 15 years, in the UK and across much of Europe. However this 820 has been a nightmare. The problem is TomTom's new updating system, which identifies the device as a 'network device' and hides all parts of the updating process whilst making it impossible to back-up any of the device's original data (except at TomTom's remote servers).

  • Summary: Would have liked a fixed divider to hold the charger in place, excepted for this detail, the rest is quite fit for purpose.
