Good unit, seller advertised used as new

  • Summary: The dealer described this as new, but it was obviously used - came with small scratches, dings in case, etc. A disappointing present for my wife. The unit works well however.

Refurb sold as new!

William A. Martin "Bak", Amazon
8 December 2013
  • Summary: This device came looking as if it were a refurb, no plastic wrap and the tape holding the box closed appeared to be a re-tape job. It looked so suspicious that I opened the box to ensure that everything is in the box. The GPS itself did not have the protective plastic attached to the screen and the rest of the contents looked disheveled in the box which reconfirms my belief that this is a previously purchased (and maybe even used) product that I paid full (new) price...

Too much trouble for the little help that it is.

  • Summary: The display is too bright at night even when turned all the way down. I mainly bought it for trips from Ga. to Tampa, I wanted to be able to find all the back road turns at night. This IQ Routes is garbage, I have driven several routes and found the best, but Tom Tom won't even consider that route. It wants to take me 25 miles out of the way to the west because it is one minute shorter, you tell it to reconsider and it takes you 30 miles out of the way to the east.

Rooted with unsupported bios

Chris Bramlage, Amazon
15 May 2012
  • Summary: This unit was rooted and loaded with an unsupportable bios/firmware relative to Hardware - unsupportable in Tom Tom Home so can't be updated or corrected in any way. Don't buy unless you need a disposable unit.

Flawed...

  • Summary: Right out of the box, I run the Tomtom Home 2 installation from the setup file in the gps. Error message, but it started anyhow. After that, the American map update cannot be updated. Read thru some forums and managed to do it after removing the original American map loaded with the unit. I bought 3 units of XXL550, 1 for myself and 2 for my friends. Same model yet all 3 units have different navcore (OS in computer term) and different things to be updated...

  • Summary: O produto que adquiri não é igual ao que tenho, que foi comprado na loja Magazine Luiza. Este GPS veio com várias funções bloqueadas pela loja. Quando o aparelho é ligado aparece na tela do mesmo um aviso dizendo que ele foi programado pela loja e que não deve ser reprogramado sob o risco dele ser bloqueado. Também vem na tela nomes e telefones de técnicos que me parece não ser da Tomtom.
  • Pros: Da forma que a loja programou o produto não tem características positivas.
  • Cons: O produto veio com várias funções bloqueadas.
