I didn't get mine from any seller on amazon but thought it worthy to review it anyway.
Have been using mine now for several weeks in my job, have been driving trucks from 40ton artic's to 7.5ton wagons, even used it as a normal car satnav as well.
The biggest thing that will trip people up, and maybe the other reviewer is to make sure you fully input all the dimensions of your truck at the start of the planning stage.
Height, weight, width and maximum speed, including any hazmat stuff etc, when you do this correctly and tell it where you are going it automatically sorts out where you cannot go and warns you.
If like me you are nosey to see what happens if... i left it on 23ton truck, 8ft wide, 33ft long and put it in my car and went onto a weight restricted bridge road, it warned me instantly, even showed it as a no go road on the route.
Add to this the live traffic, and it is well good, has saved me time on a few occasions now when traffic has become crap on my journey, it warns you and offers an alternative route you can take of decline.
Not sure if it knows the London green routes, that rule of no lorries before 7am thing, as iv'e not been there with it yet.
The lifetime maps will save a few quid overall as well.
One tip i would suggest, make sure you get a screen protector and a good case to keep it safe and protected.
I would deffo buy another and totally recommend it.
When you receive the unit, make sure that the pamphlet explaining how to subscribe to LIVE is read and understood. You need to subscribe to LIVE in order to have your free lifetime maps activated. The LIVE service that you get free for a year with this unit really is integral to its operation. Without it even the speed camera notification doesn't work as it defaults back to the locations loaded in its memory at the factory, or to the last ones it picked up through LIVE before the service expired. Those cameras through those roadworks on the A1? Bleeping forever on a clear road. After the free year has expired you will need to take out a LIVE subscription to avoid this. The Live Service subscription is currently charged at £47.50 per year. I'll update this shortly with the trucker's verdict on if the LIVE service is worth that money.
Yes you still need a separate email address for each TomTom you own. As this is now a 6 TomTom extended family that becomes a little wearing. Note that you'll need at least two accounts for each unit; one to update the unit and the other to log into support. The TomTom support does not recognise that you're plugged in and logged on updating the unit and requires you to register and log in again in order to get into the support system. Activating LIVE isn't simple either.Read more ›
Very slow and unresponsive user interface (takes seconds for anything to happen after pressing anything on the screen, unlike my £100 Garmin)
Irritating safety warnings, which add to the time it takes to get going, because of the previous user interface issue
Lacks the real life signs that Garmin has, and often gives a destination that's not mentioned on the real signs, which may change several times over a 10-mile stretch of the same road
Speed limit warnings are wrong, especially where long-term temporary speed limits are in force. Worse, it will give you the right one just before the camera, even if it's an average speed camera (as they usually are in such places)
Stupid design faults, like having to put the USB connector into the dock rather than the actual unit
Has tried to direct me along a road with a 5-tonne weight limit when I was driving a 7.5-tonne truck.
All in all, poor quality. Place name pronunciation better than on Garmin but worse in every other aspect.
As with all new devices which I entrust to direct me I initially used it with some degree of care/suspicion! The menus are slightly different to my old TomTom and it took a few days to become familiar with the differences. The routing seems to be very good and so far I have had no problems with the routes with which I have been presented. Last week my boss asked me to use a different vehicle (MAN 7.5 tonne) and collect a fridge unit from the beach-side cafe at Branscombe bay near Seaton in Devon. I thought this would be the journey which would give me confidence in this unit and I was right! The journey was from the centre of Exeter and despite the last couple of miles being on very narrow roads with tight bends the unit was very satisfactory. (Unlike the driving of the private cars I met along the way - but that is a different story!) My co-driver was shocked at the route we were given when we turned into the first of these narrow roads but it turned out perfectly OK, and there WERE a couple of other routes which might not have been so wonderful! So I am now confident that the truck-routing algorithms are satisfactory.
Now for the reservations.
When I bought this new device I went to Tomtom's website and registered the purchase.Read more ›
