TomTom XXL IQ Routes Europe - GPS receiver - automotive - 5" - widescreen
17 March 2014
Summary: Supplier sent the wrong model at first, After delay sent the right one. I had to contact Tom Tom several times to get the right software on, They were most helpful and supplied the correct Europe Map, gave me perpetual map updates and also the digital voice facility, which is essential for announcements of road names. I find this model slow to update (can take hours) and site changes by TomTom disconcerting.
Summary: This is my favourite gadget - took it around the wilds of Andalucia a few days after purchase and it didn't put a foot (wheel?!) wrong! Clear concise instructions both on the screen and orally (wrong word I know but can't think of right one to use!!) - I take it everywhere now!
Summary: This is really good - it was a struggle choosing this model due to the relatively large numbers of poor feedback ratings but I have found it to be really good with no start up or software update issues. I have had it for a couple of months now and have only suffered a few minor irritations when it was struggling to find roads in London.
Summary: This is a really great machine but there is an issue with the Computer interface (Home2) which Tomtom are reluctant to admit. If you use it as a stand alone and update via computer fine. If you want to use the interface to plan journeys - you have been warned.
