I can only assume all the other reviews are for the new 910. I have a refurb, Hard disk version, which cost £90...Best money I have ever spent. Bought it to go on a long holiday in USA, crossed many borders..UNIT WORKED 100%, VERY ACCURATE, NEVER FROZE, VERY EASY TO USE.. As for being sensitive to temperature, I used this in death valley at 160 degrees ground temperature..car A/C failed, Tom Tom never skipped a beat !!!!!
The cost of this unit in the UK was less than the cost of hiring one... (read more)

We bought this Tom Tom Go 910 for £500 and within 2 years the battery stopped working. We also had non stop issues with trying to find GPS signal even thoughwe live in central London. Price is ridiculous for what you get especially when you consider the poor reliability (read more)

Tom Tom Go 910 have some of the most expensive map updates in the industry. Now they charge for the map update based on the length of time it has been since your last update.
If you do not want the automatic annual, quarterly update, they will not allow you to just download a map update.
The original 910 GO was great because it had an 18 gig hard drive and ran under unix. Once they went the Microsoft route, and started using only flash memory cards, they severely limited the products... (read more)

Clear picture, nice size, clear voice, No bluetooth compatibility with most phones. Can't get all the addresses, a lot of places that not show off on this equipment. I bought this GPS for $ 645.00 and I think is not worth it, got lost several times in Miami and Tampa because the GPS never found the place. (read more)

First time the TomTom Go 910 failed (not charging so battery gradually died) the company really quickly arranged for pick up and repair. However after only a couple of weeks use same problem occurred only wouldn't start up. Company slower now especially as I'd indicated that I wasn't happy about getting another repair and wanted another unit.
Will keep you informed. (read more)

Besides the initial problem I had with the cigarette adapter charger burning out, I have not experienced any other problems with my TomTom 910. Great features include finding nearby restaurants, Post Offices, shopping centers, etc listed by closest to nearest, I am very pleased with my unit. (read more)

I was disappointed with this purchase. The particular unit we bought seemed to have difficulties simply registering to the satellite network. This happened despite us purchasing a completely new unit that was at the time the best unit offered by the manufacturer.
Despite having tested all of the variables (eg in different cars, out of cars entirely, various locations UK and abroad, sunny/cloudy days, when fully charged and when partially charged) there was no pattern to the problems.
The... (read more)

At time of purchase the TomTom 910 was the top-of-the-line tomtom sat nav model. Bought new for several hundred pounds and figured that weightiness and high price tag would equate to reliability and robustness. Big mistake.
The unit we bought was unreliable from the outset. It has difficultly connecting to the satellite network about 60% of the time - regardless of country, continent, location, car model (in fact if in car at all), software updates, level of battery power, cloudy day/sunny... (read more)

The TomTom Go 910 gives clear and quite accurate directions when it worked although sometimes lost coverage amongst tall buildings (which I understand is a common problem). However, it stopped working after about 3 months (it was stored inside a compartment of the car for convenience and safety and one theory I have is that it may have failed due to repeated slight overheating. However, given other reviews, the device may just be unreliable). (read more)

I bought my Tom Tom Go 910 just over 12 months ago - it has frozen on me several times - I have managed to reboot it in the past - but this time - it will not have any of it and refuses to work. I had an inbuilt system before - but when my company changed car models I decided to buy one. I bought the Tom Tom as they appeared to be popular - usually means they are successful - but I have to say it cost a fortune and did not deliver. There is no question that it is easy to use - but is... (read more)

I feel that this particular sat-nav is way overpriced. I am not happy with the inaccurate mapping display and mine has even locked up now! the only good point in my opinion is the battery length. (read more)

I was very excited about getting a Tom Tom Go 910, but now I have, I prefer my tomtom on my ipaq. Really is a poor quality, unreliable and badly designed load of rubbish. Certainly my last from this range.
I can't imagine for the life of me what the point is in a navigator that has picture viewer, mp3 player or whatever. Bluetooth I used. Only when I was on holiday in my hire car but it worked well. None of the remotes I've had (3 so far) have come out of the boxes because I can't think my... (read more)

It's a good device to get you from A to Z but not as good as Tom Tom would like us to believe. All the additional frills are not so good and not worth the extra money. I cannot compare it with other devices as this is my first. I owned this device and used it for over a year. (read more)

I searched for a GPS with multiple maps the TomTom 910 and a host of others including Garmin, which I also had earlier until some 2 weeks ago which was nicked out of my C5 Break!!!
I read and re-read.... and after comparing my previous experience with the Garmin (model refrained for not wishing to promote them for their bad service and yearly pricey upgrades!!!), I have to admit, the TomTom 910 I now had unpacked some days ago, is an AWESOME deal on the level of the consumer gadgets!!...

The TomTom Go 910 is a truly awful piece of kit. Over priced and over hyped. This is the 4th sat nav I have used in a professional capacity, but not the worst. That prize can go to the Garmin Quest. The Magellan 600T I recently purchased, and sent back, came with a broken car mount stem and seized up after 1 days use. Technical Help told me how to perform a full reset as if it were a common occurrence, but the 1 day it was working for me, it performed OK.
The TomTom Go 910 is a top of the... (read more)

I have to agree with all the comments that I have read on this site, I should have done a bit more homework before buying the 910. On balance I should have gone with my gut feeling and bought a Garmin which now I have compared side by side, is a far superior unit.
If you're looking for basic navigation & plenty of features then this unit could be for you, but if its raw navigation that you're after then there's far better on the market.
I purchased the unit new at less than half of the... (read more)

Total cost of product came to almost £400. It ceased to function properly shortly after third usage and TomTom customer care was wholly ineffectual. I returned the product 3 weeks ago and the latest up-date says that they have no parts in stock and repair will take at least another 2 weeks. Buy a good map or a cheaper Garmin (which I have had on loan for months) and save yourself a lot of money. (read more)

The TomTom Go 910 is fun to use and generally works quite well but the maps let it down. I bought it in October 06, and quite a few newer roads are absent, for example, the Lamberhurst Bypass (a trunk route on the A21) isn't on it and it's been open for a year and a half!
The thing that attaches it to the windscreen is difficult to use because the bit you have to turn to attach it is poorly designed and behind the unit, so difficult to get it. Even if you do manage to fix it on, it doesn't... (read more)

Bought this TomTom Go 910 on way out of UK to my road-trip honeymoon around The Canadian Rockies, even had street level mapping on some pretty obscure roads. Restaurant and Hotel look-up not so comprehensive, but who'd expect it to cover all restaurants in US and Canada anyway.
Best of all, it works at home too! Can't wait until the TMC/RDS Ariel comes out, as I'll then be able to get free traffic warnings - for now I'm making do with the free trial of TomTom Plus. (read more)

Having just returned from a US trip, in my dash for the plane I left the window dock to my TomTom Go in the rental car. I rang customer support at TomTom to obtain another and was told that it is not available, although listed as a separate item on TomTom's website. So I can't use the unit in the car and they can't let me have one as an exception, as they said to me it was my fault after all. So, a great product but awful customer service. Keep this in mind if you are looking to purchase. (read more)
