Summary: I'm used to the frustrations of TomTom's interface, as this is my second. I think it will also be my last. I found a great deal on this model and treated myself to it. But after a few weeks of good performance the problems started and have gotten progressively worse.
Summary: The device worked fantastically for the first 4 months,then on transfer update from computer to device it kept putting my desktop into reboot,very annoying.After several discussions with tech support and failure to cure the problem it was decided to return the unit to the workshop,it came back with...
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: Went through the set up easy, first journey entered my destination every thing was great. Directions, clarity of screen, voice, instructions etc. Good buy I thought. Second journey switched on and enterered destination. TomTom said searching for a valid GPS signal.
Summary: In a previous life I spent 10 years as an IT support engineer, so you'd think getting the TomTom 825 to connect to my laptop would be pretty straight forward for me wouldn't you? well think again.
