“Useful item”

Written on: 09/02/2012 by walter47 (12 reviews written)

I use this sat nav about 3 times a month on average, mostly in the summer. It is very handy and I would not be without a sat nav now. Easy to use with clear screen. Never let me down. However I do think it was rather expensive for a basic model. Screen is a bit small. Also I have had problems downloading maps. Finally the battery does not seem to hold its charge very long at all. I have to run it from the power source in the car and within less than 24 hours it is dead, even after a long… Read Full Review

“This review isn't about the TomTom One device itself,...”

Written on: 01/12/2010 by M40 (12 reviews written)

This review isn't about the TomTom One device itself, which I have to say is a great piece of kit, rather it is about the map updating service offered by TomTom. I own a TomTom One, and although having purchased previous maps/updates the map within device is currently not up to date. When I connect to TomTom Home software, I am advised that new maps are avilable to purchase at a cost of £19.80 for a full year (4 updates). However, in order to obtain these updates I must first pay £19.80 to… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/04/2009 by Badger2604 (1 review written)

I bought a TT Go 300 about two years ago ~ I am a technophobe but even I found the instructions simple . I use the TT every working day to deliver cars all over the UK and in 99% of the cases I am at the doorstep , the other 1% gets me to within certainly 50 yards . The company I work for pays for updates even though the machine is mine .
I've installed a larger SD card just to be safe for any free additions that may become available
I have no experience of other makes but I would be more than… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/08/2010

Great review Badger, told me what I need to know, very useful.
<br/>
<br/>May I ask you about your job, as I am looking for something similar at the moment and wondered how you went about getting something like that and what licences/training you need.
<br/>
<br/>Thanks.

Written on: 28/02/2009 by alantheskinhead (1 review written)

Clear screen when it works, good navigation but in my experience the sound stopped working after 6 months, battery lasts about four minutes when using as standalone. unhelpful website and back-up. Not very impressed with the customer service. I won't be buying another Tom Tom and going back to something we used for over 3000 years called "a map".

Also in my opinion the design is not very good, you put the SD card in the bottom and the amount of times it's fell out (i have lost 5) so I have to… Read Full Review

I thought I was getting a quality product as it was more expensive than other sat navs. I used it 10 times in 15 months without a problem then it suddenly refused to switch on. I tried all the self help tips to no avail. I am not a happy bunny… Read Full Review

Do not buy one! Mine stopped working after just three months. The screen was constantly flashing with a cross. Attempts to resolve with my PC just resulted in more frustration, just indicating missing files, with no advice on what to do next. Terrible website, terrible backup service… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/09/2008 by daisy48 (1 review written)

After looking around bought TomTom One 3rd edition. At first thought it was great but then the problems crept in. Wouldn't recognise traffic master, lost post codes and finally crashed and wouldn't store map settings. Took two days to finally get support. Was sent three pages of self fix instructions. Half way down second and 6 hours later wouldn't go any further. Another list of instructions, same again, another list of instructions, same again at this point lost the plot. Told them I wanted a… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/09/2008 by des0dw (1 review written)

A good product idea, let down by implementation. You need to reprogramme (almost) everything if, like me, you are an irregular user becuase of the poor battery life. 'Shortest' routes are a joke on land - you can't drive across a field! It desperately needs a better way of installation in the car that comes as standard, and doesn't require permanent disfiguration to the dashboard… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/08/2008

In my experience, at unexpected moments the SatNav holder disconnects itself from the windscreen, and the TomTom suddenly falls onto your lap, or if you are unlucky, into the driver's footwell, which is very dangerous when you are driving at speed. Also, the Tom Tom keeps directing me to go over level crossings, where I get stuck in a queue of traffic, sometimes for 20 minutes, waiting for the train to pass. It would have been quicker if the Tom Tom had programmed a route for me which avoided… Read Full Review

Very helpful product - worth looking into purchasing if you struggle to find people to travel with who can read maps well! Sometimes a background of the area you are travelling in can be really beneficial - doesn't always provide the "quickest" route… Read Full Review
