Faulty headset(s)

nfarrey, Amazon
20 October 2012
  • Summary: With a 5,000 mile trip across Europe to Turkey coming up, I decided to buy the new TomTom rider with extended European coverage, as my old TomTom Rider was playing up. When it arrived, I quickly realized the Scala headset unit wasn't working, wouldn't take a charge and wouldn't switch on, so I returned it to Amazon and,running out of time, ordered another one.

**DONT BUY** DONT BUY** DONT BUY**

Brian, Amazon
25 August 2012
  • Summary: Total garbage. Went against my better judgement of getting a Garmin which never lets me down to trying a Tom Tom Urban Rider. It took only took 2 days to get here which was great. After that it all went down hill from there. 1) Open up the pack and the ram mount is really only good for a side mirror mount or a thin handlebar. Had to order a Telferizer stem mount at 28 pounds 2) The supplied mount is a non-charging mount.

23 May 2012
  • Summary: Any one thinking about by a Tom-Tom don't there after sales service is a joke! They lost the Tom-Tom rider i sent back found it at last but told me it will take an additional 10 days to repair the bottom door latch they throw up every obstacle for you NOT claim on warranty with a local rate 0845 number which cost a fortune because of length of time it takes to answer.

Piece of ****

Jay Roberts, Amazon
17 April 2012
  • Summary: Don't buy its a piece of junk. The over complicated blue tooth head set does not work, will not charge or connect (researched and it is apparently a common fault). All the product needs is to be supplied with a bike charging mount and a head set that is plugged in with a headphone lead. But it isn't. A sat nav with no audio is more or less useless. I am disgusted with tom tom. dont buy! dont buy! dont buy! dont buy!

Overpriced.

litmus, Amazon
19 July 2011
  • Summary: Disappointed with this. Needed to contact customer support to get unit to work properly. ( customer support were good) I don't use the bluetooth headset supplied as it is too cumbersome. Rider sometimes chooses bizarre routes and so I have little faith in it. I prefer my £50 RAC unit as it is more reliable but unfortunately not waterproof. I will not buy another Tom Tom.

  • Summary: Köpte denna GPS med Europakartor. När jag fick den lÃ¥g hela Europa i GPS:en och allt sÃ¥g bra ut. Efter uppdateringen av kartan som ingÃ¥r i köpet sÃ¥g det hela inte sÃ¥ muntert ut längre. Nu var kartan uppdelad i 4 sektioner och du kunde bara ha en del Ã¥t gÃ¥ngen i GPS:en, övriga delar fick du ha i datorn.

Undvik som MC GPS

ralsbo, Pricerunner
18 October 2011
  • Summary: När man uppdaterar kartan (senaste kartan uppdateringen som ingår i köpet) så delar sig kartan i fyra delar varav du bara kan ha en av delarna i GPS:en. Då jag åker mycket MC i Europa, köpte jag en GPS med Europa installerat, så nu var jag tvungen att kontakta Tomtoms support för hjälp att lägga över resten av kartorna i GPS:en. Men se, det gick inte längre. Man kan bara ha en del av kartan i GPS:en. Lägger du in en annan del raderas den som ligger i.

Nur für Point to point navigation zu gebrazuchen

Belcea Bogdan, Amazon
31 August 2010
  • Summary: Ich habe den TomTom gekauft um mir bei komplexen Routenplanungen auf einer 10 Tage langen Motorrad Tour in Norwegen zu helfen, da a ich keine feste Strecke festgelegt hatte, wollte aber dennoch ab und zu wissen ob mir die Zeit reicht um rechzeitig zurückzukommen. Anfangs dachte ich das ich mit diesem highend Modell voll bedient sein werde... bin aber zu triefst Enttäuscht. Da meine Routen ein Par tausende KM hatten brauchte der TomTom für die berechnen 15-20 Minuten ...

Gutes Gerät ... miserabler Support

Gert "Gert", Amazon
23 January 2010
  • Summary: Aufgrund der durchwegs positiven Berichte habe ich mir dieses Set gekauft und dann leider einige negativen Erfahrungen gemacht. Diese betreffen die Firma Tomtom. Den Service und Support von Garmin gewohnt muss man sich bei TomTom gehörig umstellen. Die Firma scheint mit allen Mitteln teure Kartenupdates verkaufen zu wollen. Wird das Gerät nach dem Kauf über TomTom-Home upgedatet heißt das noch nicht , daß man die neuesten Karten installiert hat.
