Reviews and Problems with TomTom XL LIVE IQ Routes
Showing 1-10 of 23
Disapointed - is really mediocre
20 July 2012
Summary: I owned a Tom Tom go which died and decided to go for this thinking it was about time and the technology would have really moved on. I would consider myself a fan of Tom Tom after trying some Garmin products in hire cars a few years ago and finding Tom Tom just much simpler.
Summary: This TomTom is an improvement on my TomTom XL IQ. It features an improved mount, built in to the device, and it works pretty well. The device is easy to use, but one criticism is the menus - they seem to be all over the place, and there are endless options.
Summary: I have owned a Tom Tom Go 510 for about 6 years and have really loved it. In all that time it only let me down once and it was my fault as I hadn't checked the light was on whilst traveling and it lost charge. It finally gave up a few months ago and I decided it was time for a newer model.
Summary: I really want to love this unit but it just has too many little annoyances. First, the good points... The display is fantastic and is more than big enough to see everything going on and is extremely clear.
Summary: I bought this from another retailer and wish I'd done more extensive research. This and other models have an SD slot, but this is not yet available for use (although TomTom promise an update at some point which will make it useable).
Summary: Purchased VIA Live. Although the Sat Nav is working for directions, Lane assist etc. I would rate this part very good. But i cannot get access to Live services. Going through Live chat with TOM TOM customer services has been very frustrating.
Summary: I have taken the satnav on some experimental runs in the car and so far I have a few problems. A large town in a neighbouring county (New Ross, County Wexford, Ireland) does not appear on the list of town names. And it is a LARGE town.
Summary: I have bought the TomTom VIA LIVE 120 EU because it seemed to be the perfect package for me, live traffic services, vocal instructions, google search and speaker phone. The Live traffic services and google instructions work as expected, I am very please with these services.
Summary: This Tomtom was great and did everything I wanted it to, until I tried to update it. The unit corrupted and hours of frustrating toing and froing via the Tomtom web help service and then on the phone did nothing to help. It wouldn't even turn on.
Summary: Great device when it's working, it keeps pausing and is difficult to reset, not a good idea when you are in traffic. The live traffic is also good but although it manages to avoid traffic it still takes as long to divert down back roads and the wrong way down one way streets???
