Pleased with the TomTom

2006poppop, Ebay

  • Summary: Needed to replace a Zumo 550 that had failed. After looking at prices and options made the decision to buy the TomTom. Overall it has most of the features that I needed but with the price difference between it and a new Garmin made the decision to buy the TomTom. Screen quality is good and unit easy to operate. For the difference in cost I am pleased with the unit.

  • Summary: I have used two different Garmin GPS units extensively (first a Quest II and then a Nuvi 550) on long distance motorcycle trips. The Quest was slow and the screen on the 550 was poor in sunlight but overall they were decent units. The Killer for me was Garmin's miserable map update system and terrible interface software. So I purchased the Tomtom and have been favorably impressed.

big step up

  • Summary: Answers most of my complaint about the earlier model. the display is brighter for daytime. I haven't had a real problem seeing. The display is wider, my previous complaint was that the status bar was difficult to read with small letters, and took up too much of the road display. Much better now. However a big downside is there are no spoken street names.

amazing

  • Summary: No separate mounts to buy, no separate wiring harness to buy. It's all included. You can see the GPS even with the sun behind you. Gives precise driving directions sent to your Bluetooth headset. Choose between winding roads or quickest route.

Will Take Some Time

Golden Girl, Amazon

  • Summary: No instruction manual came with the Tom Tom so it is going to take me a while to learn how to use it the way I would like. As any other GPS system I can put in information for starting at one destination and arriving at another no problem. What will take time is saving a route, downloading a route and creating an itinerary.

Accessories needed!

Brian P. Markey "Q8 bound", Amazon
25 November 2013
  • Summary: Has anyone else tried to locate accessories for this item? I was hoping to get an additional mounting dock, complete bike mount, battery cable, and maybe an auto mount also. I have more than one bike and would like to be able to just undock and swap. Tom Tom doesn't really have anything available.

Good Performance

  • Summary: Update for Trip Planning: I used the Tyre trip planning software that comes with the TomTom for a 1 day 300 mile winding back road drive last week. This software actually worked pretty well. It was easy to quickly plan the trip by using Google maps thru Tyre and transfer it to the TomTom. However, I don't like dirt roads and I could not get Tyre/Google to identify and avoid the dirt roads as I prepared the trip on the computer.

Just what I was looking for

Zobet3, Amazon
30 August 2013
  • Summary: The Tomtom rider is just what I was looking for. I wanted to be able to create a route with Google maps and then have the device navigate it for me. The included TYRE software is easy to use. Just be sure to create enough waypoints in the route to ensure the Tomtom keeps you on course. The RAM mount made it simple to mount on my bike. Sun glare does appear to be somewhat of an issue but the spoken commands through the bluetooth headset connection work fine.
