About This Brand

Founded in Amsterdam in 1991, TomTom now has offices Europe, North America, and Asia. The company Web site claims that TomTom is the world's largest provider of navigation devices, with sales in 30 countries and online. We've found TomTom devices to be among the easiest to use in our testing, but the company also offers tech-savvy users options to customize their units. Celebrity voices are available, and TomTom invites customers to update maps and POI information, and share it with other users.

Comment:
I agree with the previous person 200%. I bought this to replace another brand, which I had 5 years & loved. I went on the recommendation of friends & I'm sorry I did. I have used it 3 times & got VERY lost each time. It only talks sometimes. It will tell me to turn after I've passed the turn or its too late to make it. I have to pick it up to look at where I'm supposed to go but that involves 3 steps to get to the directions. When I last used it, I knew I had to go north, and it kept telling me south. I contacted Tom Tom and they really don't care. I'd like to return it but can't find my receipt. I'll try anyway because this is useless!
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
This unit came with a lifetime update package, but the updates have been unavailable since I purchased the unit shortly after Christmas.<br /><br />I have encountered some very severe map errors including streets that extend out into lakes, switched, outdated (by decades) or completely erroneous street names. The route planner, on one occasion, took me to the wrong town, thirty kilometres away.<br /><br />I've also had problems with the unit not displaying side-streets as I pass them (neither the physical street or its name). In all cases these were streets that had existed for decades. <br /><br />The GPS has (rarely, but on a few occasions) displayed that I was on a parallel street several hundred yards/metres away. Had I not already been familiar with the area I could easily have believed I was on the wrong street and have tried to correct an nonexistent error.<br /><br />TomTom encourages users to participate in map corrections, but my email to them about the above problems (with Google and Bing maps to support) resulted only in a rather snarky and condescending response. They might update the information, but with online updates unavailable for over a month, I'm not optimistic I'll ever find out before I return this GPS to the store.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
