Simply Horrible - inaccurate directions, bad touchscreen, worthless traffic

Jake, Amazon
18 November 2010
  • Summary: The TomTom XL 340T is one of the WORST pieces of technology I have ever purchased - and as a 30 year old man, I have bought my share of tech toys. I returned the TomTom after 10 days, bought a Garmin at similar price and am now very happy with the Garmin (more on that below).

Good and Bad mostly Good

Laura, Amazon

  • Summary: The day we received our Tom Tom, we started playing with it immediately. First thing we did was hook it up to our computer to see if there were any updated maps for it (you never know how long these items have been in a box since they were assembled).

Really Good for the Price

eyes the wise, Amazon
11 November 2010
  • Summary: Does a great job for the price that I paid; the live map updates is a great feature. I don't see why you would need to get anything more advanced than this. Bought this last minute as the car rental Satnav hire would have almost been the seem amount.

One Cool Navigator!

April Blake, Amazon
9 November 2010
  • Summary: The TomTom XL 340T is pretty darn awesome and it seems impossibly futuristic to me, since the portable GPS unit I've been using until TomTom arrived is a Garmin Nuvi from 2006 or 2007, which is a fine unit, but TomTom is just so much cooler!

Never buying a TomTom again!

Nicole P, Amazon
9 November 2010
  • Summary: Never buy a TomTom GPS. Seriously. I did, and I regret it. The thing used to send me on wild goose chases. The maps, even immediately after updating them, were often wrong. Not for little out of the way places either, but for large metro cities.

Frustrating

G. Ratcheson, Amazon
6 November 2010
  • Summary: Upon first receiving the unit I ran into a number of issues as mentioned below. I'm going to update each issue below IF & when it's resolved. I will acknowledge this is my first experience with a GPS. I read the weak owner's manual twice before turning the unit on.

A great GPS for the money!

Frobisher, Amazon
3 November 2010
  • Summary: The GPS compares very well to my older Magellan. It still takes more than 30 seconds to lock on, even with a pretty clear sky, but once it does, it seems far more accurate. The graphics showing road geometry shows that the database knows the angle at which the exit peels off, which no doubt helps...

Works good but...

C. L. Willis, Amazon

  • Summary: ..... I see no difference with this one than the smaller less expensive unit I had before (sorry, I don't recall which model) but they appear to work EXACTLY the same. Street names can only be spoken if you use the computer voice. In other words, street pronunciations doesn't work for all voices.

Better than Garmin

Michael C. Mclaughlin, Amazon
31 October 2010
  • Summary: As a long time user of Garmin GPS units, I broke tradition and purchased this unit after much study. I'm pleased to report the unit lived up to my expectations. Compared to the newer Garmin units (i.e. 1350) the TomTom has a slightly slower processor. My list of cons ends there.
