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

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.
Summary: Don't like the way you programme your journey..very complicated and it doesn't always find where you want. Much preferred the simpler GARMIN to the Tom Tom and would probably go back to that make next time round.
Great product but still waiting for Amazon to deal with short change on Live services subscription

Summary: The SatNav is great, traffic alert is the best I have ever used. Perfect user interface and the integral windscreen mount is great. My only gripes are: -It included 12 month's free live services, in reality I only have 6 months and when I challenged Amazon they fobbed me off to TomTom.
Summary: A very good product to use, slower than my old Garmin, Live traffic very useful, although I had to cahse TomTom to get it added to the device, also missing the multi stop feature on the Garmin.
Summary: Just took it out in the car for the first time, I like the map display and voice directions with road names. It looks good, the inbuilt suction cup keeps things neat. I use the disc on my dashboard to stand it on from my old Garmin. It's easier to follow the directions on this, but it wouldn't recognise my house number and suggested I go to number 13 instead! So I'm disappointed the maps don't seem very accurate on this more expensive sat nav.
Summary: Just to add to some of previous luke-warm reviews, really. This is OK - just. Pretty cheap-looking product and poor finish quality - threads hanging out all over the place, lining not attached at bottom and the zip's stitching is pretty flimsy - can't see it lasting over-long. Will be a cheap tide-me-over until I find a better option I suspect. (That said, at least it does fit in the Tom-Tom Go-Live and its cable, and is much cheaper than Tom-Tom's own alternatives...
Summary: Fantastisch apparaat voor in het handschoenkastje en laat het daar vooral liggen.Als je van de route afwijkt wordt de tomtom 820 helemaal radeloos hij blijft je terug sturen zelfs als het 20 km korter is als je doorrijd.Stuurt je vaker van de snelweg af om je een stuk verder er weer op te sturen,de dag erna moet je wel de snelweg blijven volgen,dit met uitgeschakelde live en uitgeschakelde IQ routes.Live is een hopeloos systeen hij geeft je een alternatieve route voor...
