Written on: 01/06/2009 by mitchellfamily294 (1 review written)

have had this Tom Tom Go 520 sat nav for some time now and has not caused me a problem yet, sometimes it does take me down a wrong road but i am still to see a sat nav yet that doesnt do that. All the features on it work fine with my radio and phone. I am a heavy user of a sat nav and this has been the best one i have ever had. 10/10… Read Full Review

“Do not buy a Tom Tom, I have been trying to get...”

Written on: 08/04/2009 by barrydyer (1 review written)

Do not buy a Tom Tom, I have been trying to get support for mine for nearly 5 months, they are completely useless and now trying to blame my mobile phone, when it is the same one I have always used, even when the tom tom worked ok. The device keeps switching off and the support people haven't got a clue. Its all ok when it works, but as soon as you need to contact support you don't stand a chance.
I am also paying for traffic info but this isnt working and they will not refund my yearly… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/12/2008 by fmd953 (1 review written)

This has got to be the most unreliable bit of electronics that I have ever purchased.
It is very glitchy. The speaker options work intermittently, the FM transmitter works intermittently. After updating on line the update was supposed to give a more accurate global positioning, now every time I pass a lay-by it shows that I drive in it, not the end of the world but very annoying.
The battery died after 6 months and was replaced under warranty.
The charged died shortly afterwards and was… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/12/2008 by Mattsky (1 review written)

Easy to use, regular web updates. Owners can send in their corrections, and you have the option of subscribing to live traffic updates via tomTom or just stick with the ones that the radio broadcasts.
I'd recommend it. The user-contribution updates are good. I'd like a shortcut button to automatically pick an alternative route instead of having to go through a few menu options, though… Read Full Review

After hours of research will definitely buy Garmin opposed to Tom Tom
Phoned Garmin offices for technical details for length of antenna etc. and got straight through with clear and kind help. The screen on Tom Tom has unnecessary details when you are travelling thus taking your attention… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/08/2008

When asked to update TomTom Home the maps on my TomTom 520 were wiped. It took days to get a reply by e-mail, pointless trying to phone as you are just kept on hold until office hours end. Have no choice but to send it to Tom Tom office, had enough of waiting for someone to help sort out a problem of their making… Read Full Review

Easy to use but the deeper I got into the functions the more confusing the software got. Does the basics well.
Got me lost twice. Only used it 5 times!!! Locked up a few times after entering post codes. Wouldn't recommend. TomTom overated… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/01/2008 by alanrgrees (1 review written)

First time used told us to turn right at a major junction, should have been left, does not do what it says on the box. Also expected to receive 1 year updates of traffic camera alert, told no, that it was a one off download. When asked to speak to supervisor I was told not policy to hand calls to supervisor, when asked for telephone number of Head Office, told they don't give out the information. Will not buy again and will recommend friends to go elsewhere or buy a map.In my opinion it is not… Read Full Review
