an anonymous customer, Walmart
24 June 2014
  • Summary: When I first got it, I tried it around my town and it worked quite well, very accurate. Then I tried it for an address about 25 miles away. It lost GPS contact after the first 5 miles and then wouldn't give me a business address I wanted even though it was at a major intersection. It wanted to point me to a house that was about 2 miles from where I wanted to go. I finally got it to give me my location but it would not show my destination point.

searching for valid gps signal

Donna Marie, Amazon
29 January 2014
  • Summary: I really like the ability to see on a map where I am going once the tomtom has decided on a route. Big plus and why I bought it I am a visual thinker and need to see that. Even if it is not a a very well developed aspect of the gps. I would have had more chances to learn more about this gps but it has 2 serious faults. Once is that it takes forever for it to get going in the morning. hee hee. it takes a good 5 minutes to warm up or more.

  • Summary: I have had a TomTom for years and loved it, so I'm a little surprised. I have a major issue with the website and updating. There were problems at every turn. I couldn't register with my Email. When I signed in with an old account it took several attempts to recognize my device. 2 days later I have still not succeeded in getting my GPS updated. There will not be a day 3 as I will take it back.

Nice Features / Poor Directions

S. Weitkamp, Amazon
17 February 2013
  • Summary: Nice size with easy to use features. It speaks your next two turns cleary. The 3D maps work great on big expressways. The only HUGE problems is that it takes you to the wrong address and tells you that you are at you destination when you are not. If I would have listened to it driving back to my house I would have driven into the Chesapeake Bay! Navigating through three out of four destinations it took me to the wrong places.

Ok but takes 1 to 3 minutes to find the satellite

Love The Drive, Amazon
5 May 2014
  • Summary: Overall works ok but often takes 1 to 3 minutes to find satellite, so you end up sitting and waiting which is annoying.
