Summary: Well this is actually my first product review out of tons of stuffs I bought from various websites. Basically it caused a huge problem on my vacation at Mexico. I purchased this GPS one week before my 10 days vacation because it claimed preloaded Mexico, US and Canada Maps. And it is important to mention that I bought a used one from kingdeals (AMZ seller) at $ 37.99. So I don't know which one should take responsible for this crap item I got, AMZ, TomTom or Kingdeals.
Summary: After owning a Garmin Nuvi for awhile and having it stolen, I bought the Tom Tom thinking it was going to be similar. It is IMPOSSIBLE TO USE THIS GPS DEVICE!! It is very complicated and not user-friendly at all. I hate this product and currently saving up to buy another Garmin! DO NOT BUY THIS COMPLICATED USELESS PRODUCT!
Summary: I loved this GPS until the charging piece snapped off in my charger in my car. A piece about 3-4 inches snapped off the end of the device and is currently stuck in my car. I contact TomTom and they said I am out of luck and there is nothing they could do. I am now stuck with 100+ in car service repair charges to get the piece out of the electrical charging port. I would not recommend this product or company to anyone.
Summary: I would give this 1.5 stars if I could. I received this as a gift after my garmin died (it was in my backpack and a large book fell on it:( ). I travel a lot. I am in a new city every 4 weeks and most often, it is a new state as well. I depend on my GPS for all my direction as my smart phone isnt that great with maps. The TomTom was supposed to have lifetime up dates and thats why the person bought it for me. I opened the box and tried to use the device right away.
Summary: TomTom XL 350 4.3-Inch Portable GPS Navigator This is advertised as an upgrade to the XL340. It is not a newer model,it has different,less powerful GPS software. If you want an upgrade to the XL340, BUY THIS AT YOUR RISK. When is a GPS upgrade a downgrade? What happens when your GPS is discontinued, are maps updates available? We need only look at Tom Tom to find an answer. Fifteen years ago I used my first TomTom GPS, an application that ran on a Palm Pilot.
Summary: It seemed to change screens at will. There is NO documentation either in the box or online. With the small screen the functionality of the traffic alerts is diminished. My old Magellan which, itself, just stopped functioning one fine day, had better messaging and more easily accessed options for route planning. What I did like about this item was its quick adaptability. Not a lot of telling you to make the next legal u-turn when you changed the route ad hoc.
Summary: This GPS has worked horribly from the moment I bought it. There is a known problem that the voice cannot be heard if the volume is turned above 80%. It has been known for over 3 months now and hasn't been fixed. The computer voice that is supposed to speak street names stutters and does not announce upcoming turns. I have had to downgrade to a turn-only voice in order to get it to work at all.
Summary: Two problems with this unit 1. The activation code for the lifetime map updates did not work (it had already been used). I called TomTom customer service and they were unable to help. 2. Every time I linked it to my pc I had to reinstall TomTom home. I had the unit for one night and was forced to reinstall TomTom home ~5 times. I returned the product.
Summary: My TomTom x350m crashed after updating on TomTom webb site.After many calls to TomTom problem just got worst.I bought my wife a garmin a year ago no problems I bought and spent more on the tomtom 2 months ago and got crap.
Summary: I had a TOM TOM one, a few years old, and was tired of not having accurate maps, although I was happy with the unit otherwise, so I bought into this unit with free lifetime maps, thinking that newer more expensive units would also be better in all regards, what electronic device these days isn't better and cheaper every year? This unit is not better, it is much dumber than my TOM TOM ONE. This is cheap trick by TOMTOM and they don't deserve a lot of people buying this.
