SAFETY SPEED CAMERAS OUT OF DATE KNOW SOLUTION OFFERED BY TOMTOM
27 January 2015
Summary: Purchased this and paid for Camper and Caravan maps and thought I had done well with what I had paid out in total.....Tom Tom have had months to help sort out the problems....Let me change that to years after reading the forums....The problem is with their Safety speed cameras.Out of the box the unit states last update for speed cameras July 2013 so obviously an update is the answer I hear! Now they state CAMERAS-OUT -OF -DATE after update....
Summary: I decided to buy this product as I thought it was made by a reliable brand. Although it seemed expensive I reassured myself that I was buying a quality product. Unfortunately the touchscreen failed when it was one month out of its 12 month warranty. TomTom demanded 100 euros to repair the product. I asked them to reconsider and they said I must have damaged it myself-which I definitely DID NOT do! Now I have to buy a new SATNAV but it definitely won't be a TomTom!
Summary: Sorry but this was absolutely woeful. Used it for a trip from Heywood in Gtr Manchester to Chester. Hardly rural outposts. Within 5-minutes it told us to turn left when the only available turn was right and it was clear the system thought we were on a parallel road. It CONSTANTLY left us high & dry, displaying message that there was a loss of GPS signal. This happened several times - even on the M6 for heavens sake!
Summary: Do not buy this Tom Tom - I drive through the city ( London) For work and all I can say is this device loses signal all the time Even in none built up area's and takes forever to find a signal When you start it up and puts you on the wrong road for about 100m even with my house programmed in to it.
Summary: The first unit I ordered didn't work as soon as I took it out of the box. The second unit played up after only two months' use (Amazon will only accept returns up to 28 days) so I was stuck with a completely useless unit. Whilst driving it kept switching to another screen, so you could hear directions but not see where to go. Completely distracting, and in my view, dangerous. I had to constantly reset it, and even then, it only worked temporarily.
Summary: This item arrived on time well packaged from the vendor, but it didn't work and had to be returned. I set up an account with TomTom, plugged in the sat nav to my computer but it would not switch on. I took it to the car and plugged it in but it would not come on, it was dead!
Summary: I had one of these for my birthday last march 2013 by november the unit wouldn't turn on, after many attempts to sort the problem on line with tomtom they suggested I return it to their repair service ( Milton Keynes) this was done on their freepost labels.As at this date 16th jan 2014 I am still without my Via 135, tomtom's customer service calls originate in India I have called a number of times and have never been able to speak to the same person twice,they promise to...
Summary: I bought this one of all of europe. While the maps are not so updated, mostly worked out fine for a couple weeks. after those, started to shut down, thats when I discovered that the connection between the device and the charger is not good at all. I have to change cars a lot of times and I don't like to leave it on the dashboard, so every gps these days needs a good connection that doesn't ware with time. This took me 2 weeks only.
