The only problem I had was updating it when I registered the device, which was because the file size for the whole European maps was too big for the device without adding an extra SD card. The help-line was brilliant and they soon helped me to get over this problem. We have just come back from France and the Tom Tom worked first time every time. You just place the town you want in the Search area and then any other info and it soon finds the location.
Sometimes it's difficult to trust the directions as they seem to defy the hard copy maps, but ultimately the Tom Tom won and got us to where we wanted and normally in the time it states.
A great device and I would recommend it to anyone especially if they are not too tech savvy like me!!!
I find it easier to always have a hard copy handy, especially for those of us who didn't have a smartphone with our feeding bottle!
I usually have a quick bash, then look at the manual, then find a video - there's one on utue which is very helpful - there are two, but the 2nd available is for an early-ish version - the screen features are different to my GO so I didn't find that very helpful.....
Coming from a Via125 to the GO 5000 was a bit of a leap into the dark side for me ... but I think I'm slowly getting there.
One query (for now !) is that I haven't yet worked out if you can in some way program the route to go through/to places en route to the final destination ?
On the Via, there was in fact a "via" option (you saw it here!) where you could plan a route via various places on the way, which was very useful - saved having to "plan a route" anew at each
I think it's a retrograde step if it can't be done somehow.....
Overall, at this early stage, I like it very much, the screen is very clear, uncluttered, and the voice selections acceptable - but forget the "witty" phrases by the Oz & Kiwi ones - they'd have me chucking it out the window fairly speedily !
(You may be able to buy others, like Basil Fawlty or Homer Simpson, like in the past - if you must ...............)
Haven't yet had call for the Traffic feature, but any day now..... I toyed with a "caravan" satnav, but having used TomToms for nearly 20 years now, I stick with what I trust.
By now I'm pretty happy putting faith in TT mapping & guidance. In all those years, home and abroad, I've only had a few duff directions, most no fault of TomTom routes - very recent new roads/emergency road works with detours etc... many of which would be helped by Traffic, I should think. (Found the Netherlands the keenest on doing this, for some reason ....)
I no longer place much reliance on reports of coaches in cornfields, or artics in front gardens !
The "head" unit is nice to handle, with a reassuring"heft" to it, and the attachment bracket is excellent, very secure and easy to re-position if need be - a great improvement over previous ones. The "docking" system a joy, after past contraptions, as well as the charging/power socket integral to the bracket itself - so no need to faff about taking the lead about,that can be permanently "installed " out of harm's way.
I bought an extra cable, purchased on Amazon for a pretty small outlay - make sure to get one with the right-angle fitting - for charging and PC/laptop updates etc... as well as a "just in case" should the original fail, or indeed if you want to use the GO in another vehicle.
I haven't yet bothered with a memory card, but it apparently it's a good idea for the big updates when they start - compatible ones are quite reasonable, in the recommended 8G size ; people have had trouble using lower, and higher, capacity ones, so 8's the best to go for.
I was tempted by the Garmin, liking the simple square shape, but some of the reviews, and people I know who've had them, raised quite a few concerns . I really do think TT is hard to beat, and the "Lifetime" maps and traffic are a great additional resource, and a considerable saving.
I'd recommend this unit to anyone - and the extra cost for not needing to mess about with a phone is well worth it.
What is driving me round the bend (sorry for the pun) is the awful TomTom MyDrive Connect software that is a constant problem and very slow. Go on the TomTom forums that they host and see how many people are having problems with this software. The device comes with Map updates, very good, but after a map update today I was left with no UK map! Luckily a second attempt managed to resuscitate the device but I was really nervous as the previous four updates have failed.
This is after about three weeks of not being able to update after my Window 10 update. TomTom did their best to resolve this and put in lots of time but failed. Another story but I am worried the very poor software put the device at risk of continuing to function and it is certainly very hard work for me even though I have 40 years IT experience.
