Summary: On the whole an excellent piece of kit. Last week the M5 was closed for two junctions and I was extremely impressed that I was notified several junctions in advance. Unfortunately whilst I followed the diversions firstly I was greeted with silence followed by 'turn around when possible'! Although she knew the road was closed :) Ah well bit of fine tuning needed still I think. But would recommend this sat nav.
Summary: likes: - excellent clear screen presentation - suggestions on alternative routes in order to minimize delays by traffic jams - audible indication of stationary radar controls dislikes: - despite regular updates not all speed indicatiions reliable (e.g. July 13, '13 on autobahn 63: long-standing roadworks at Niederolm - Saulheim: speed limit 60 km/h - TomTom 100 km/h) - difficulties saving names onto Favorites (steps not clear) Altogether clever and helpful device!
Summary: Having just lost my Garmin Nulink 1695, I wanted a Sat Nav unit with traffic information & Bluetooth so I could have 2 phones on Bluetooth. Had a look at the newer Garmins but was put off by the need for another Ariel trailing over the dash. So after looking at all the reviews some I must say some very worrying and some good I decided to bite the bullet and order the GO Live 825. Still having reservations while waiting for delivery.
Summary: I needed a new sat nav as my old TomTom worked on my ipaq, and the batteries on both are just about dead. It lasted me many years and was a good product. I've had the pleasure of using a built in Nissan sat nav which was rubbish, it didn't take postcodes, and you couldn't easily get it to give you a sensible route.
Summary: Easy to use with accurate sensible routes. Only problem is the new Tomtom website link software which is poor and does not work properly yet. It took 6 hours to update the map but did so faultlessly despite screen messages asking me to kill the pages??? Clearly Tomtom has seious software issues that should have been resolved well before its release.
Summary: The case is just the job, nice and easy to carry and it stores all the items that come with the 825 such as cables and adaptors etc. With the integrated mount though, it doesn't seem to fit into the case that well. The case could be fitted with a resess to allow for the mount so that the case closes properly without forcing it.
Summary: Cari amici di ciao oggi in vista della gita a Roma che ci aspetta questo fine settimana dovendo usare il navigatore Tom Tom ho deciso di parlarvi un po di lui. Tom Tom Go Live 825 E' dotato di: 1. HD Traffic 2. Radars, Tutor e Autovelox 3. Ricerca Locale con Google 4. Chiamate in viva voce 5.
Summary: Dies ist mein zweites TomTom Navi, nachdem ich mein "one" jetzt wegen Akkuschwäche in Rente schicke. Viele Einstellmöglichkei- ten, die erst mal durchgearbeitet werden wollen. Bedienungsanleitung leider nur als Download. Ich empfehle dazu die "TomTom Lüf- tungsschlitzhalterung..." (ASIN: B0073T7X92). Die Aussage:"FREE Lifetime Maps" bezieht sich NUR auf die Europakarte! Da in dieser aber die Deutschlandkarte enthalten ist, noch als OK bewertet.
Summary: Welcher Weg zur Arbeit ist der kürzeste? Über die Elbbrücken oder doch die B5? Ich mache das Gerät morgens auf der Fahrt zur Arbeit an und stehe seitdem nicht mehr läger im Stau. Auch die Ansage "Sie fahren immer noch auf der kürzesten Strecke" hat etwas Beruhigendes. Wenn man sich öfter mal ins dichteste Verkehrsgewühl stürzen muss, dann sind die Dienste von TomTom Spitze! Und die Lifetime Maps sowieso.
