Tom Tom Start 25

willowdown, Halfords

  • Excerpt: I never got this product to work. Unlike some, I am not prepared to spend hours and hours trying. The download got stuck, there was absolutely no access to help from Tom Tom, so I simply sent it back for a refund. It's not fit for purpose in my opinion. I will not buy Tom Tom again.

  • Excerpt: Unless you are a technology magician avoid this like the plague. No instructions other than 7 comic strip pictures. Registration and installation processes full of ambiguities and repeats because it does not seem to know whether they were successful or not, one time telling me the device was not...

Nightmare to link for map updates

Martin, Argos
14 July 2015
  • Excerpt: Device itself is working absolutely fine. Unfortunately I have found it almost impossible to download map updates. Linking device my account was a real nightmare. "Something went wrong. Please try again later" kept appearing on the screen.

Unable to get Live Traffic Updates is a Huge Floor

LJEBOYO, Argos
5 July 2015
  • Excerpt: I find the Sat Nav good as a product but the big floor is that you cannot get live traffic updates. I purchased the Sat Nav believing that I would be able to use it for work as I am expected to travel across the UK.

Shame about the software

twish1999, Argos
2 June 2015
  • Excerpt: The TomTom itself is great, good size, clear display and works great..... however the software that goes with it that you would use to update your maps is terrible! Couldn't get it to work at all and after googling the problem i could see thousands of people saying the same thing.

Had to go back

  • Summary: I had to return this item as it would take up to 15 minutes to find satellites and I do not have a reflective screen on my car which I know is an issue for some.

Disappointing

Expat Ann, Argos
13 May 2015
  • Excerpt: I purchased this to replace my ancient Tom Tom, as, with lifetime maps, it worked out cheaper than paying to update the maps. What a mistake. My old Tom Tom was easy to use, with a sensitive tap screen. The new one requires an almighty thwack to engage the screen.
