5.0 out of 5 stars All the frustration ended, 26 Jan. 2006
This review is from: TomTom GO 500 - GPS Navigation System with Bluetooth Handsfree (Electronics)
Got a TTG500 after much looking around, and trying out 10+ systems.
Sure TTG has some issues (quirks is a better description), but so have all the others. I drive artics and there is nothing worse than carrying 50+ map books for towns and city centres - and nobody appreciates 65 foot of artic parked up on a busy street with a perplexed driver at the wheel. Dead easy to use. Maps are as good as anyone elses. Put me in the delivery yard of a cider press in herefordshire just on the postcode - 1st time out of the box, boy was I impressed!
Great that you can create your own POI's and share them with others. When I going going somewhere new, I can normally find someone else who's been there, and get the POI coordinates of the drop off of them - then, hey presto, straight on the loading bay.
Audio instructions take a little getting used to (3 or 4 trips before you get the 'feel' of the way they are structured and how TomTom want you to understand them.)
Itineries are fantastic!
Would be good if you could alter maps yourself for permanently closed streets, new one-way systems etc.
If you drive trucks always make sure you select the 'Limited Speed' option always seems to select a valid route for trucks that way, but hey if it tries to send you up a country lane, drive on and it works out the new route.....if all else fails, browse the map and treat it like a map book!
All in all I would recommend TTG to anyone.
