Tomtom 1605TM - great GPS unit but Hopeless Software

Swifter, Amazon
9 July 2014
  • Summary: While this is a great GPS unit (in terms of size and directions) it is absolutely hopeless in terms of map updates. This is my second unit that i had to get replaced from amazon and unfortunately it does not update itself. Emails send to tomtom support have been going in thin air without any answer.

  • Summary: COULBN'T BE HAPPIER. DEBATED BETWEEN THE 5" AND 6" SCREEN BEFORE MY PURCHASE AND CHOOSE THE 6". IT WAS EASY AND SIMPLE TO USE, EVEN FOR THE TECHNICALLY CHALLENGED AS MY GRANDCHILDREN REFER TOO ME. WOULD RECOMMEND THIS GPS TO ANYONE SEARCHING FOR A GREAT BUY AND QUALITY PRODUCT.

Useless and a downgrade from older TomTom models

Jesse James, Amazon
1 July 2014
  • Summary: Complete garbage! I've had several older TomTom products that worked well. The older ones used the TomTom Home software. Newer ones use the useless web update instead. I will be returning this unit as it can't seem to find a signal after 1 hour of being outside and not covered by anything.

This is a TomTom Product for the now?

Adrian A. Arnold, Amazon
14 June 2014
  • Summary: Sorry, but I have had a TomTom Go 530 for years and it worked pretty well. My wife bought this 1605 for me yesterday, and it still won't update after being on the computer for hours. I transferred my account to the 1605, so that is not the issue.

The GPS stopped charging

Martin L. Cumberbatch "Martin", Amazon
13 June 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this device for a trip to Friday. The functionality was not as intuitive as I would have liked compared to Google's GPS on my phone. Now. after 3 months of use the battery has stopped charging. So of course i am now not able to return it so I will have to eat the $118 I paid for it.

No street names in 2D mode & Screen too dim w/ Polarized sun glasses

TI99, Amazon
6 June 2014
  • Summary: You can't see the name of the street you are on or the next one you are turning onto when in 2D mode. I have never liked the 3D (brain dead) mode as I can read and navigate with a map. I find myself stopping and referring to a paper map. Other than this very critical flaw, the unit is ok.

map update now requires memory card

S. Lehman, Amazon
5 June 2014
  • Summary: TomTom just updated their maps, now if you would like to have all of the United States & Canada on your gps, you have to purchase a micro SD memory card. I travel to over 30 states, Mexico & Canada for work, either spend more money, or change the maps before each trip.

Not recommended

Ruben Khalafyan "Ararat", Amazon
29 May 2014
  • Summary: First of all in order to enter the address you need to enter the city then street name and then house number, which is opposite of all other GPSs and maps, where you type house number, street name and then city.
