The power button is awful!

rcritt, Amazon
21 November 2013
  • Summary: This is my second Tom Tom, and it works fine. I do not use any of the phone/voice functions so couldn't comment on those but as a bog standard sat nav few problems. The memory does eem rather full after onlt a couple of routine updates. However, the power button is awful! Often not working at all, and completely unreliable as to whether it will turn the device on or off. Had I had the time to send it back and complain I would have done. Seems to be a common failure.

Basic TomTom - updates a nightmare

rij, Amazon

  • Summary: Does what it says - only 3 stars due to the map and other software update process being so clumsy and painful. Also no linux support for updater - only for windows and mac! TomTom seemingly needs to make some investment in the IT side of things.

Good product but doesn't hold it's charge

Johnno, Amazon

  • Summary: This sat nav works every bit as well as my old Go720. I bought it as the battery in the Go720 no longer held its charge and TomTom wanted way too much money to update its maps. Sadly, although I now get free map updates for life, this new TomTom still won't work on battery for more than 30minutes so I'm still left with a charging cable dangling in front of me. I will try Garmin next time.

Be careful. Not as good as its predecessor.

  • Summary: I went for a TomTom after reading good reviews and as I used to have a TomTom Go 520 which was good and served me well for nearly five years before it was stolen. Its main drawbacks were connecting to the computer which was very unpredictable, and the cost of updating maps. I thought the VIA 130 would offer me accurate navigation and free map updates but without the media add-ons the old TomTom had. The VIA 130 looks smaller and lighter.

Not an improvement

Mw Coulthard, Amazon

  • Summary: I have used tom tom ones for years and thought to upgrade after seeing the voice control. Tne 130 system is not as clean and simple to operate as the basic models and takes many more commands to do the same instruction.

  • Summary: After trying the tomtom start 20 which let me down after a couple of days of buying it and the weeks of looking at the best sat navs I thought i would give this a try... The first one I recieved was great! for 2 days then it wouldnt switch on! and yes I did charge it so thats gone back, I asked for a replacement as I thought it may be a one off how ever I have had the replacement for one week and tonight it has just decided that it wont switch on either!

  • Summary: Een reactie op R.J.W. M op 4 aug 2012 16:09: Er zit geen lichtsensor op, m,aar hij schakelt wel degelijk om op nachtkleur zodra de zon onder is gegaan. Is een GPS signaal funvctie. Moet je wel even aanzetten via Instellingen. Echter, het warmte verhaal herken ik: vandaag ging de TomTom spontaan uit, resette zich en kwam weer terug, maar is nu heel traag. Ook werkt de TMC module niet meer, en die heb ik hard nodig. Geen idee wat er is gebeurd.
