Summary: Firstly the service and delivery time was great, well within estimated date. Maybe I was unlucky but the charger stopped working within a month, red light says it is delivering charge but not the case. Will be spending a tenner on the genuine article.
Summary: I am(or was!)a committed and converted Tom Tom user. I loved their products, emanating from the basic Tom Tom with UK mapping that I have used for 6 years, using the Tom Tom HOME software on my computer at home.
Summary: We have raved about TomTom products for 8 years or so. This 825 with Euro maps is fine, if all you want is an atlas. Despite wasting nearly 4 hours (and we are extremely competent with all things IT etc) we have worked out that there is a HUGE problem with software relating to the GPS unit.

Summary: I have now had two Tom Tom 825 Go Live sat navs from Amazon. I am fairly IT literate but I can't get them to link to the PC. They also will not pick up satellites - a fairly fundamental problem with such an item.
Summary: I bought the GO LIVE 825 to replace a 1000 series that was stolen, wish I had stayed with the 1000. Lots of problems with the 825, #1 very fiddely to put on the wind shield, #2 The battery does not last long in storage, can't leave the thing in the car, that's how the last TOM TOM was stolen, so I...
