Summary: I can only assume that most people writing the reviews here have not had a satnav before. This is my third satnav, previously I have used a Garmin and a Navman, admittedly sometimes in other countries. This model is supposedly near top of the range but I have found that it lets me down on usability. By the way I did not buy from Amazon, if I had, I might not have found it so hard to get my money back.
Summary: I bought this item in April 2011. It was childs play to set up and get working. Very clear screen and directions. It was supposed to have "latest map guarantee" which means you can download the latest version of the map for 30 days after purchase. When I tried it said my guarantee had expired. I contacted TomTom customer care and they just messed me about.. they wanted purchase proof which I sent .. that was not good enought..
Summary: I'll keep it short. I bought this knowing full well of the lack of storage space (thanks to other reviewers). I bit the bullet because I want a big screen and a big name company in case something goes wrong. How wrong I was... I opened the packaging, plugged the device into my PC, and that's where things started to go wrong. The device updated but did not reset, instead it hung on the welcome screen indefinitely.
Summary: Since buying my XXL it has been no better than useless. The touch screen is unresponsive and the device freezes on the menu screen resulting in me being unable to programme any route. The device was sent for 'repair' but was sent back the same day the repair company received it stating there was nohing wrong with the product. I, foolishly, relied on the device to get me to a work appointment yesterday for it to freeze and become uterly useless again. Do not buy.
Summary: The cheapest is not always the best. I have had two of these as both the original and the replacement refused to start. Contacted Tomtom support who advised replacement which Amazon did superbly. It was a BIG as Halfords sell the same product for £143 but include a free charger and case!
Summary: I have order "TomTom XXL IQR Edition Satellite Navigation System - Europe" as replacement for my old via Michelin GPS . It arrived quite quickly. After unpacking and connecting to PC I have updated software and was almost ready to go except that device got stack on startup screen and simply didn't work -DOA. Also when I was downloading "latest Mat Guaranty" (which took ages) I found out that Europe is divided again.
Summary: I bought this from an Amazon partner. When it arrived all the literature was in German and the device was set up with German voices so I returned it. The replacement was also a German version. I downloaded the manual from TomTom's site and converted the voices to English. The device worked fine for 8 months and I paid TomTom for a year's map upgrades (£39.99) and the Premium safety camera service(£34.99).
Zusammenfassung vorweg: Schrott, Müll, nie wieder TomTom

Summary: Das TomTom XXL IQ habe ich am 28. April 2014 über Amazon gekauft, am 5. Mai 2014 traf es ein. Es sollte ein Navi von Medion ersetzen, das nicht mehr so richtig wollte, drei Jahre alt ist und für eine Kartenaktuallisierung bekomme ich auch ein neues Gerät - das war mein Gedankenansatz... Ausgepackt, an den PC angeschlossen und TomTom Home hat alles auf den "neusten" Stand gebracht. Gut, dachte ich - kein großes Installieren, keine CD's, kein gar nichts - soweit, so gut...
Summary: Das Gerät an sich ist recht gut. Es hat eine gute Verkehrsführung, zeigt teilweise aber erst ein wenig zu spät die richtige Ausfahrt an. Das liegt wahrscheinlich daran, dass das Navi zu langsam aktualisiert. Grottenschlecht ist, dass ich teilweise eine halbe Stunde fahre, bevor ich erst einmal ein Signal erhalte und die Navigation beginnen kann. Das ist absolut indiskutabel! Damit kann man das Navi in vielen Fällen nicht gebrauchen.
Summary: Molto lento, non indica le vie che si stanno percorrendo e mi fa fare strade assurde. Rispetto al navigatore precedente il tom tom mi ha deluso, non sono per niente contento del prodotto acquistato.
