I did buy a cheaper brand a few days before but had no web back up and couldn't even direct me properly from my moms which is 2 miles away along with the fact that every bend in the road I was told to turn left etc. Somethings you buy you are just better going for a decent brand and having a reliable product then saving £20 and ending up spending that plus more on petrol and patience. Very happy with my first decent sat nav and will only buy Tomtom in the future!
The new built in screen sucker is a welcome addition as it is intergrated so the unit is easier to store and the new design worked well. Built in speed camera alerts worked great and detected everyone I approached but again the ability to change the notification sound is a bit of a minus, albeit the one chosen by tomtom is less intrusive than my last unit so a bit less of a problem. Tomtom maps are great and have never put me wrong and on this unit map share is standard allowing the owner to download any map changes made by other motorists onto the machine, a plus point.
IQ maps are also standard however I would happily have paid a bit more for their advanced lane guidence which highlights the correct lane at busy intersections you should be in, this is a boon on some motorways.
I'm happy with my start, shame about the sound output which is my only real gripe.Read more ›
The only minor problem I can find is there is no LED on the device to let me know that it's charging or when it has finished charging. This didn't stop me giving the product 5 stars. Excellent value for money and I highly recommend.
I tried everything (As did my local store) but the unit simply would not switch on. Eventually, I contacted TomTom Customer Services and told them how I had obtained the unit and that it was "NOT" under guarantee. Their service was exceptional. Firstly, they sent me a small package containing a cardboard box which, when assembled, fitted my TomTom unit perfectly and would clearly protect the unit whilst in the post. Secondly, the package also contained a Royal Mail "Special Delivery" envelope complete with address and tracking number. Postage and insurance were already paid by TomTom.
Within 24 hours of my posting the unit back to TomTom I received an email confirming receipt and within 7 days I got another unit back. TomTom had REPLACED my unit free of charge with a brand new and exactly the same model and ALL under guarantee!
So for those of you who are contemplating purchasing a TomTom satellite navigation system, I thought you might like to know about this company's follow-up customer services system. They are quite excellent and I hope this message is useful.
