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.
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.
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 I do not expect this when paying for a brand new Sat Nav and am surprised that Amazon are selling Sat Navs with out of date maps.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.
Summary: I recently purchased the Go Live 820 as an update to my two year old Go 520. I am happy with the performance of the unit and the new look and feel graphics and icons are excellent. I was sceptical about how the live services would work but I have been pleasantly surprised about how accurate they are. The trade off is that the unit does take longer to boot and calculate a route at start up.
Summary: I have owned the Via Live 120 EU since February of 2011, and 9-10 Months on tomtom have now stopped making the Via Live 120, and replaced it with the Go Live 820, that's right for the entire duration of its release tomtom have listed "Mapshare" as a feature when in fact it never has worked! It is still the case for this new one, it too does not have Mapshare!
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.
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...
Summary: Gerät ging zurück. Schon beim ersten Einschalten und probieren flackerte das Display ständig. Nachdem ich alle Fehlerquellen ausgeschlossen hatte (Händy+Computer aus), keine besserung. Das Display ist außerdem sehr grob, sprich krieselig. Rücknahme problemlos.
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.
