FURIOUS 1ST TIME BUYER

Peter M. Akmans, Amazon
4 May 2009
  • Summary: This was my 1st attempt at purchasing a portable GPS unit for my car. I paid extra for next day delivery, another mistake. The unit arrived on time, but problems began when I started the set up procedure. Instruction booklet reads that the unit may be behind in map updates.

TomTom XL S

  • Summary: We purchased TomTom XLS 08/02/08 for a trip to Canada. Many time the GPS did not know where we were. Just yesterday I was going to see a family member in Indianapolis. She lived at the same address for about 3 years but street not in GPS.

A very annoying piece of equipment with many many problems

Dragon Speak "goldragn", Amazon
17 July 2008
  • Summary: I bought the TomTom One XL-S for the larger screen and text to speech capabilities. I first tested a Garmin 260 text to speech model, but the screen was too small to see at windshield level. I was very surprised at the ease of use of the Garmin and the problems with the TomTom.

Units are OK, but Customer Service is the WORST.

Lost in New York, Amazon
7 January 2008
  • Summary: The unit worked well for the 2 weeks I had it. Then, the TomTom "Home" software downloaded and installed a software "update" for my One XL-S, however, the updated software was for a different model. The unit malfunctioned from then on.

Buggy Maps and Not Really Mac Compatible

Arnim Zola, Amazon
29 December 2007
  • Summary: On a trip to one of the built-in Points of Interest (The NY Hall of Science), my Tomtom XL-S told me to go in the wrong direction through a one way loop in the front of the museum. Then it told me to connect to the highway by going through the paid parking lot at the museum.

Tom Tom, No Way

David N. Lustig, Amazon
24 December 2007
  • Summary: I went through two Tom Tom XL S units. At first, I thought that the model name on the unit and the box were mismatched - I bought an XL S, and the unit (serial # and software) said XL. So I returned the first unit because it would not pronounce street names. The second unit - same problem.
