Summary: They only last a year! In 5 years I went through 4 TOM TOMs. When you really need them to work , they go dead. Contacted TOM TOM's main Office only to find out they can not repair them. After complaining to the company ,I shipped two dead units back to the main office,Then and only then did they make good on ONE unit! I have since used GARMIN ,nuvi and I an very satisfied after 3 years with GARMIN! AND Garmin gives you free map upgrades.
Cons: - My TomTom is very bad (it is a way to update the device). As a matter of fact, I hate it. Tomtom Home was bad but TomTom was able to created an even worse system. I waist more than 6 hours trying to make it works. - This GPS is very expensive (>USD 3
Pros: Routes around traffic quickly and predicts arrival time very well. The built-in speaker works well, even as a speakerphone.
Cons: Live service (including traffic updating) frequently fails Computer update software rarely works -- especially on a Mac Support doesn't even know what the product is -- they recommended installing the wrong software. Interface is not as intuitive as the G
Summary: I purchased a TomTom navigator system based on good experiences with renting cars with Magellan's Neverlost. The Magellan unit was expensive and I found the TomTom had a superior user interface, was portable and less costly. So I purchased the TomTom Go Plus. I can't give enough praise to the user interface. It is very intuitive. The graphics are large and easily read from a distance. Its speaker delivers loud and clear speech.
