I brought this to replace my damaged tom tom lead, and looking at the picture shown for this product I thought I was buying a genuine tomtom charger as it looks identical to my original.

Received today only to find that the product is a substandard compatible charger.

Only buy this if you are after a cheap COMPATIBLE charger for the tomtom range.

Like some of the other reviewers on this page, I bought this lead as mine was also damaged and I wanted a like for like replacement. What they send you is totally different to the picture used - it's one of those chargers with the curly lead wire - and not what I was led to believe I was buying.

I think it's disgusting and I will not order anything from them again. After thinking I would be getting a good deal, it turns out that I've been mis-sold a product. I'm not going to waste any more of my time returning this as it's not worth the additional postage (that they won't refund can I add - wonder why...)

This is a substandard generic piece of rubbish which, despite all the complaints I have NOW read, is still being allowed to be sold by Amazon (but hey, what do THEY care!) - the picture is of the GENUINE charger; but that's not what you get, is it?

The charger is not only substandard, in terms of build construction and general quality, it isn't even RATED correctly (which in my opinion, makes it dangerous). The Tomtom charger is rated at 5v 2amp - this piece of rubbish would struggle to supply 500ma.

There is no angled USB plug as on the original which means there is undue strain on the connector of the Tomtom, which I believe could damage it.

All told - a disaster.

I intend to make a formal complaint to Amazon with a view to getting a FULL refund (including postage costs) as the item is substantially not as advertised; they ought to know better than to continue to sell the item after so much adverse comment. Sadly, I trusted the (amazon) brand instead of checking the feedback; it has served me well in the past, but I will be MUCH more careful in future. A bond of trust has been broken between vendor and purchaser; that cannot be reforged, Amazon.

Think on!

This is very cheap and arrived very quickly. The product I received is fine but it is not like a Tomtom charger or like the picture. It is a coiled cable not a straight one as in the picture so it is far shorter than a true Tomtom charger cable and will not allow you to position your Tomtom in the same way. Other than that, it does the job and doesn't feel cheap and nasty. I just can't charge my Tomtom and have it in the position I normally have it (on the windscreen near the side window) because it's not long enough and cannot be positioned around the steering column.

despite the picture suggesting you were getting the original tom tom charger with longer lead this is not what was received, although it is compatible with tom tom.

I read a number of negative reviews, but still went ahead with the purchase thinking that Amazon would have corrected any misleading information. I saw the image on the page and thought that the product will have a straight wire, but it does not. There is a coiled wire in the charger I received and it is cumbersome to use in some cars. In my Ford Mondeo, the charger point is behind the gearbox and the coiled wire interferes with the gear. Not recommended at all, unless you are looking for a cheap imitation and don't care if you get a straight wired charger or a coiled one.

The photo of the item shows a straight lead which is the reason I ordered it, however the item I received has a coiled lead.

The product delivered (and as shown in the review photo) is not what was advertised. I ordered the charger with a straight cable but received a curly cable which will not fit behind my cars facia. When I called the company to complain, I was told that what you got was the luck of the draw! This is not good enough. Beware all !!

Product advertised was a TomTom car charger with a long lead. Product sent was a copy TomTom lead with a curly lead. Company is using an official TomTom photo to sell this copied item. Looking at reviews, many other people have expressed the same views. Do not buy from this company!
