  • Pros: Was great while it lasted, loved the big screen.
  • Cons: The hard drive went bad after 2 and half years and only used occassionally, maybe once a month at most. Was told to take it to another vendor to get it repaired. Bummer!

  • Summary: Could not find a manual for this product on line. When I called TomTom about this I was told "we are a green company, and do not print manuals etc." What does "being green" have to do with putting a PDF file of the manual on the web site??? In fact, it would be "green" to make an electronic copy of the product manual available.

  • Summary: very nice product but the only thing i don't like is that it gives you instruction on where to turn without saying the street name out loud. I am not sure if it is able to say the street names or not. I haven't had it that long. Over all it is a good product.

  • Summary: Tom Tom senior tech support says this is a bug that affects all their models. They will not replaced the unit for this reason. They are working on the problem and are not able to give ANY estimate on when this will be resolved. I even had TomTom support supervisor hang up on me when I requested a refund of the product because of this.
  • Pros: The 530 picks up satellites very quickly, especially if you download gps fixes. It's satellite sensitivity is also great. The iq routes are a godsend.
  • Cons: The only bad thing is that it's sound quality of the computer voices is horrible. It also constantly mispronounces English street names. It also as a very big defect, it mispronounces the 0 (I.e. the 105 freeway) to "west". For example it will say merge left onto the one west five east freeway instead of one o five east or four hundred five east. You can see how this would be confusing. If you choose two voices, one computer voice and bart simpson for example. It will...

  • Summary: I was looking for a simple way to guide through a city in a foreign country. This seemed easier than a map but the maps for this product were much too expensive. It has a nice size screen and directions were easy to follow. If you don't plan to take it with you to another country you will love this.
