Summary: Unit was sent with the wrong size male plug that goes into the GPS from the charger. Contacted tom tom customer service, I could not understand him and he could not understand me, lovely. I,m returning to amazon and purchasing from the local walmart. At least I can open the device on their counter to see if the power/traffic receiver cord fits the unit. I think I will go with a garmin, any company that packs the wrong charger for a unit must have a quality control issue.
Why have you streamlined this GPS to the point of being somewhat useless?

Summary: Dear Tom-Tom, Product: Tom-Tom START 55TM 5-Inch GPS Navigator with Lifetime Traffic & Maps and Roadside Assistance Problem: Why have you streamlined this GPS to the point of being somewhat useless? Actually pretty-much USELESS! Where is the "Itinerary Planning Option?" Why have you removed it? Not a very smart move! You had a good system to begin with (Tom-Tom XL 330.S) and proceeded to ruin it! Your tech-support in India was just an insult to injury!!!
Summary: Despite saying on the packaging that this fits the Tom Tom Go, it does not fit all Go models. Only after purchasing it, spending ages trying to work out how it could possibly fit, and then reading some of the reviews did I work this out. It would be helpful if there was a full list of what Tom Tom models this fits. Buy with care!
Summary: If it says "Lifetime Traffic and Maps" why am I receiving emails asking me to pay for updates? This makes no sense and I feel that if it not a Lifetime offer it should not be stated as such. I have no plans to spend money to update something that was otherwise advertised.
Summary: I bought the TomTom Start 45 and when I went to test it out by putting in my work address it took to me about 15 minutes out of the way. My Garmin had no problem getting me there. The route is very simple all highway and right of an exit. I then put in an address about 1/2 mile from my work place and it had no problem getting me there. I thought this was outdated I called TomTom support and I had the latest maps update.
Summary: This is a really good sat mount. It is easy to fit to car vent and the sat nav. It doesn't leave any marks or blemishes on the car dash like the sticky pads do. It is well made and seems strong and is easy to fit the sat nav onto and off.
Summary: Power cord is too short. No instructions without going on line. Fewer features than many older, cheaper models. Harder to use than many older models. Speed limits on US map are not correct for stretches of some interstate highways. Menu is confusing.
Summary: I can never tell in which direction I'm travelling. This makes life so much easier for the usually lost. Was easy to install and program. I also bought the dashboard mount and it works out very well. The mount is heavy enough to stay put when making a turn, but easy to store in the glove box. A good combo. Shipping and packing were great.
Summary: Bought my first TomTom about 6 years ago while on a trip where I got seriously lost. Have really enjoyed the ease of use and ability to get updates online. Reason I bought a new one is that the display on my other one started to fade. Guess that happens with old age? No matter, the new one I bought has a much brighter screen, is a little wider than the older one and seems to have better graphics.
