disappointed

Untrustworthy Directions

Ray Fisher, Amazon
21 October 2013
  • Summary: I am still in the middle of using this Tom Tom, it is so inaccurate I am just not able to rely upon. I have down loaded all available up dates. It was purchased for my journey down to the Algarve and back and it does nothing but frustrate. It is not a case of "Picnic" person in chair not in control.

Disappointed, problematic device & poor support

ddraig "merthyritarchitect", Amazon
24 July 2012
  • Summary: I bought this TomTom 820 based on reviews and positive experience with 2 earlier models. Unfortunately the experience hasn't been good compared to earlier models. Despite having a supported phone and the devices pairing it wasn't possible to make or receive calls (fine with other handsfree) and multiple attempts to use TomTom support went around in circles with the same scripted response on updating firmware, resetting device etc.

out of date

Amazon Customer, Amazon
2 April 2012
  • Summary: The Sat Nav itself is excellent but I was disappointed that the second day I turned it on it informed me that the maps were 10 months old and I should consider renewing them. I do not expect this when paying for a brand new Sat Nav and am surprised that Amazon are selling Sat Navs with out of date maps. Most disappointing. Followin gon from this, I heard back from Tom Tom but I was unable to renew the maps since it would not accept the new sat nav.

Go Live 820

Mrs. P. Lukins, Amazon
13 October 2011
  • Summary: All seemed to go well until it stared taking me down farm roads, endless country lanes and worst still the wrong way on the motorway after coming off at M6 toll rd service station. Instead of taking me 'Home' it tried to take me back to where I had come from. 'TomTom Home' used to update everytime I plugged it in. Since I have had this new 'My TomTom' system there has been no updates whatsoever. I had the XL for yrs without any problems and gave it to my son...

Jekyll and Hyde

R. Bentley "Angler", Amazon
13 October 2011
  • Summary: I bought this satnav as an upgrade from my original TomTom 1 version 2. It really is a Jekyll and Hyde device. When it works it is great, really great. The smart routing automatically guided me around a slow horse-box one time, and the traffic alerts are way more accurate than overhead gantry signs or anything you hear on the radio - very impressive.

TomTom GO LIVE 820 - mehrfach Totalausfall

Gabilong, Amazon
23 March 2014
  • Summary: Ich habe das Gerät nicht bei Amazon gekauft, aber es geht ja um die Bewertung des Artikels. Nun, ich benötigte ein neues Navi und entschied mich vor wenigen Monaten für die GO LIVE 820. Die Navigation ist gut und reaktionsschnell. Bluetooth ist eine gute Sache. Das Navi verband sich sehr schnell mit meinem Handy und Dank Sprachsteuerung klappte das Anrufen auch jedesmal.

nie wieder tomtom

Jakob Hölzl, Amazon
31 January 2014
  • Summary: Geräte wurde mit Google Suchdienst beworben, dieser wurde nach kurzer Zeit auf den TomTom-Suchdienst umgestellt welcher jedoch nicht zu gebrauchen war. Genaugenommen ist das Vertragsbruch. Weiters muss das Gerät dauernd upgedated werden, damit es in überhaupt einen Satelliten findet, hat man das erledigt ist es eine Woche sptäer wieder notwendig. Der HD-Traffic Dienst ist nicht schlecht, jedoch zu teuer.

Zickt rum

Dong66, Amazon
18 March 2012
  • Summary: Zuerst war ich von dem Gerät angetan. Leider fehlt jedoch eine Schutzfolie und eine Tasche. Machte also wenig Spaß, da Lieferumfang beschränkt auf das Allernötigste (Doku im Internet). Doof ist die Halterung, die nur an der Scheibe funktioniert und die nicht entfernt werden kann. Transport in der Hemdentasche o.ä. nicht möglich. Immerhin hat es (im Auto) gleich funktioniert, wenngleich ein Ladestatus vorab nicht erkennbar war. Nach ca.
