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.
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.
Summary: After a number of years using a Navman, which had maps that were well out of date I decided it was time to get a new Sat Nav.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.
Summary: I originally bought the TomTom GO 540. This had to go back due to the dreaded error 107 though. That is the error you get with a high number of units when you try to access the Live services. I have to say though, I also wanted the voice input, which the IQ XL does not have.
Summary: Just a quick review related to the software (TomTom Home). I've got my TT XL IQ Routes Europe since Thursday and my main concern when I've bought this item was the bad reviews about the software and related hardware problems.
Summary: This is an upgrade from my older TomTom One. Much better display and I like the route indicators at major intersections. Readily locks on to Satellites and displays location. Clear and concise instructions. Good value for money.
Summary: I initially bought the Go Live 540, being a lover of gadgets I love the more technical units! Unfortunately when trying to access the Live services, I kept getting the "107" error. I exchanged the unit but the new unit had exactly the same fault.
Summary: This is the first Sat Nav which I have purchased so am unable to compare with previous purchases. It is definitely worthwhile paying the extra for the XL than the standard as the screen size on the XL is just right.
Summary: I bought this as a replacement for my old TomTom 510 which had broken. The good things are the excellent lane information at junctions and the clear concise instructions. Not so good is the long time it takes to warm up (find satallites), up to 5 mins in a city.
Summary: I bought this because I needed a satnav for a holiday in France. Halfords did sell this cheaper two weeks after i bought it. Setting up was easy, i did not update the map before going after reading other reviews on download time.
