Inaccurate

HailtotheVictors, Amazon

  • Summary: Does not give accurate directions. It is small and I thought it would be nice to have but it is very slow to load directions and it has gotten me lost.

Slow and not accurate

Luiz Salomao, Amazon
17 December 2012
  • Summary: I bought this as a gift for my father in law, not a good choice specially to whom was addressed.. :) The system is slow and the voices are confusing, even the maps are weird and navigation through menus are not very intuitive (I still cannot figure how to cancel a route...

Unusably slow

Kai C. Pradel, Amazon
24 January 2012
  • Summary: While Tom Tom still makes the best user interfaces in my opinion, this devices is equipped with cheap components that make address entry near impossible. The touch screen is laggy and inconsistent and I constantly find myself re-typing. The mounting system used is sheer useless as well.

TomTom

YoungBlonde19, Amazon

  • Summary: When my TomTom first arrived it would not acquire satellites and asked me to plug it into my computer for updates. I installed the updates and my TomTom crashed. It kept saying "NO MAPS FOUND" and wouldnt say anything else.

Okay but ultimately disappointing

Edgar M. Twamley, Amazon
28 May 2010
  • Summary: I ordered this because of the low price and what I'd heard about Tom Tom's reputation as a major player in the GPS area. It worked seemingly fine for about 10 days, but then, when I turned it on one day, it could not find the satellites to make the GPS work.

Still waiting on customer support

RJR "RJR", Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this as a gift for my parents. We looked at the paper manual which is pictures and very little text. I connected it to their MAC computer and the 1st thing that happened after TomTom Home installed is it indicated CRITICAL updates were required to download to proceed.

TomTom XL 340S

Neverlost, Amazon
26 December 2009
  • Summary: Overall a good unit for the price, BUT WITH A MAJOR FAULT, software updates are a major problem!!! I will compare it to three other GPS's I own (Garmin 755T, Navigon 2100, Magellan 2200) Best maps: #1 Garmin, #2 Tomtom, #3 Magellan, #4 Navigon (as of 12/26/2009) Garmin maps are the most complete and...

Map Guarentee is useless

Anonymous, Newegg
23 August 2009
  • Summary: Unit needs to be expandable via flash card so that future updates are installable. Needs to add a speed limit indicator on the mapscreen. These two things would make this the GPS to own. But since it is out of date when you buy it and it can't be updated with the free update - had to return it.
  • Pros: Like the TomTom maps better than the ohter GPSs I have used. Liked the broad selection of voices that are available. Like the ability to mark map corrections/updates and share them on TomTom mapshare so that things were more up to date. Best mount and slimmest I have seen. Really liked the interf...
  • Cons: The unit comes with a guarentee for 30 days after registration to update to the newest map. The newest map is too large (1.98 gb) to fit on the unit (1.91 gb) even if you delete all the voices. If it was only US and Canada it would fit - but the unit is US-Canada-Mexico which does not fit. Suppor...

Painful Setup Process

Amazon Customer, Amazon
25 July 2009
  • Summary: This is the third TomTom I have owned, and unfortunately the setup process seems to be getting worse with each iteration. I hate to give it such a low rating, but the installation process is just horrendous. I started up this unit and the default language was Czech, seems like a strange choice...
