Lifetime Maps activation won't work, be ready to jump through hoops

Amiga, Amazon
21 May 2012
  • Summary: TomTom continues to offer the same ol' crappy customer service. I buy their devices because I like their interface more than the competitions. I don't buy them because of their product support. Lifetime Maps activation doesn't work through TomTom HOME for the 335LM / 335M / 4ET03. You get the error of, "An error has occurred. Please try again." TomTom's support wants you to go through hoops and fax them the activation / promotion card and also the device's receipt.

DO NOT BUY

Eric, Amazon
21 May 2012
  • Summary: I want to start by saying that I have never written a review of a product in my life. I felt like I had to on this item to make sure nobody else fell into the same trap and purchased this gps. I cannot imagine a worse product. When the device first comes in you have to use an activation code on the software. To do this you have to have the latest set of maps, which apparently is not preloaded. This is where my problems began.

Worst TomTom Ever

John Doe, Amazon
21 May 2012
  • Summary: Let me start with the fact that I will be the last one to badmouth TomTom GPS. I have gone through five TomTom GPS in 8 years, some lower end, a couple of higher end, and this one is an outlier worst one. For example, I had searched my home with probably close to a hundred different electronic maps, including dozens of GPS and cell phone maps, this is the first and only one that put it a few blocks away. The community was built in the 90s, so it's not a new address.

Tomtom does zero QC testing

Ryan, Amazon
21 May 2012
  • Summary: The PC software (TomTom HOME) doesn't work correctly with this GPS out of the box. Plug in, click update, and it doesn't have space (on the GPS to install the updates. That's 100% stock. Activation Code (for lifetime maps, etc) also didn't work. Phone support said mine was the first phone call he had ever received for the 335 product.

XL335TM - not so good

Joe B, Amazon
21 May 2012
  • Summary: Received an XL335TM as a gift yesterday and spent over 7 hours today trying to get it to work properly. Out of the box and into the car and it turned up nicely. I entered my home data sitting in the driveway and decided to give it a test drive. I picked the post office from the POI list and let it select a route. The first thing I noticed was the voice just told me to "turn left in 100 yards", no announcing of street names.

Map updates too expensive and cumbersome

dp in Kentucky, Amazon
19 May 2011
  • Summary: Unless you drive in different areas of the country on a weekly basis, you will only need to update the maps every few years. But, apparently TomTom wants you to subscribe anyway because if you wait a few years then updating will cost about what the unit costs new. Also, their is no way to add data storage space such as an SD card and TomTom does not take care to keep the Map Data to a size that even not so old units can handle.
