NOT 'FULL' EUROPE,
This review is from: TomTom GO 740 Satellite Navigation System - LIVE Full Europe (discontinued by manufacturer) (Electronics)
** Please read bottom of this review as have had contact with TomTom since writing **
I received this item for my birthday and was initially pleased with the product. I moved to central Europe recently and was particularly interested in travel through Greece & Turkey.
First problem, Greece is not considered one of the maps given in this 'full Europe' edition. Secondly both Turkey and Greece maps are not available to download for this unit. You can't tell this if you simply browse their website, they appear available at a price. You have to purchase the unit and use 'Tomtom HOME' to request more maps to be told that these maps are not available for your device.
Pretty disgusted really. Great product, works a treat where it has maps, but I feel very very cheated by Tomtom and will be seeking to return the product asap.
** After much correspondence with TomTom they are now claiming that the maps ARE compatible with the 740live, but that there is an issue with their software which claims otherwise, stopping the purchase. This is apparently a priority fix, but there will be no notification of when it is sorted. I will amend my review as and when this is shown to be true. **
** Sure enough the problem with Greece and Turkey has now been sorted. Though the Greek map was full of errors regarding unpaved roads. The unit has served reasonably well for over a year now, my main complaint being a remarkable lack of memory to store favourite destinations **
