Worth every penny

  • Excerpt: Before getting my Tomtom, I'd have described myself as a nervous driver. Not nervous in that I didn't know what to do, or was scared, when on the roads, but I'd find myself getting nervous if I didn't know exactly where I was going. I'd planned to buy a satnav for some time, but had found myself put off by the cost. They aren't cheap, and for someone on quite a tight budget, I wandered if I'd use it enough to justify the cost.

Glad I have one in my life now

  • Excerpt: I've just brought this Tomtom sat nav, I could not decide between tomtom or Garmin but everyone advised me tomtom was better so went and brought one! I'd never used a satnav before but find it very useful especially on my recent trip to devon! It is easy to set up, just plug it into your computer so it can upload any updates. To plan a route simply enter the postcode or search for the place on the map and click go!

Worth every penny!

  • Excerpt: I first bought this Tom Tom refurbished from Tesco Outlet. It was £129.99 which I thought was a very good price. Also it came with a years free Live subscription worth about £50. So it seems well worth the money. I'd had a Tom Tom before and thought it was great but not very modern looking. Also I had never tried the Live services before and thought it would be interesting.

A solid average, maybe not worth the money.

  • Excerpt: I bought this Sat Nav just before driving into Europe last year. I was heading into the middle of Germany with a rowing boat trailer on the back of my car so decided having a reliable route guidance system would reduce some of the stress. It worked as well. At no stage were we lost or did we get close to being lost. The screen is big and the directions are clear so you always know where you're going. It hasn't all been plain sailing though, I've had a couple of issues.

This takes the stress out of driving and will save you both time and money

  • Excerpt: I'll start by saying I was a late adopter of sat nav technology and if we were going on a day out somewhere unfamiliar I would simple use one of the Free online route finders to plan my journey. Most of the time this was ok, but if you take a wrong turn, are diverted or the instructions are wrong as they sometimes are, they you are well and truly goosed and left driving round in circles trying to get your bearings.

Not bad

  • Summary: Used to have a TomTom One v2. Recently purchased this one on offer. First thing to note is that this product heavily relies on you updating the software so that the QuickGPS location update exists. This is the update where TomTom will try and scan for the GPS satellites from your last known location.

XL IQ routes

jackwabbit, Amazon
15 October 2010
  • Summary: After a number of years using a Navman, which had maps that were well out of date I decided it was time to get a new Sat Nav. I chose the TomTom XL IQ routes over the others because of the larger screen & price. On using it I found the menu options fairly easy to use, & the instructions on the road very clear. The lane assist is superb & where the old Navman had me taking a wrong turning on the junction of the M62 & M66, there was no problem with the TomTom.

Needs careful positioning on dashboard

Roy Clare, Amazon
16 May 2010
  • Summary: I nearly sent this back because the GPS took so long to lock-in (sometimes 20 or 30 minutes!), then I discovered that satellite fixes could be obtained faster (within 30 seconds!) when the unit is placed much nearer the windscreen in the centre of the dashboard, with the top edge angled towards the glass, so that the receiver has the best possible 'view' of the sky. Since I tumbled to this, the unit has performed perfectly.
