Customer Product Reviews

Rated 3.8 out of 5★ by 20reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Note: Have used only a week But I haven't got anything bad to say, and having given the one I bought to my son, I just ordered another one. It worked without any updating, right out of Walmart's parking lot, and the updating experience was fine. I called, though, about something or other I didn't quite get, and their customer service was really nice, insisted on walking through the rest of the installation with me, spoke excellent English (it was located in Guadalajara) and by the time we were finished, I was well prepared for the learning curve every new gadget will inflict. But it was easy. My main recommendation is just study well what the info on the screen is, and how to touch the center to Change Route or get to the whole menu. I saw some roadwork ahead the second day, touched the screen, touched the barricade icon, and those two touches told Tomtom that I wanted to keep my destination but for him to find me a new route--no, not only a new route, but the fastest new route. And lo and behold, that's just what happened. It was easy. I noticed some other folks suddenly wending their way through the one-way streets back in the neighborhoods and I guessed they have a system, too. I won't be without one now. Too nice. 10/12/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Not complicated. We had a Tomtom one that had become almost impossible to update. This replaced it. It's as easy to use as the original. We only want a gps that shows us mileage, POIs, distance to POIs, and fastest routes. We always have paper maps in addition to the gps. This is just added knowledge. 06/15/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great maps easy to read This is our second TomTom and they continue to give us what we need. Great maps! Love the large screen 11/02/2013
Rated 1 out of 5★ by Terrible Lag - Deceptive Product Rating I owned an old TomTom that I disliked, but thought perhaps they had fixed the bugs because the reviews on this one were so great. Oh, how I was wrong!!!!!!!!!!5 minutes out-of-the-box I knew I'd made a bad decision. Many times the numerical and alphabet buttons didn't register when pressed. Other times there was terrible lag, followed by multiple letters or digits popping all up at once. AWFUL!!! This thing couldn't find my street??? So, I just attempted a search for my town at the major intersection. It couldn't find that either!I truly do not understand how this product is rated so highly. I consider myself tech-savy and dislike the whole layout. I do not feel it is user friendly.Returned the next day and purchased a Garmin (with lifetime updates and was cheaper than the TomTom). LOVE it. No lag, great layout, user-friendly, and takes me right where I need to go. 02/11/2014
Rated 4 out of 5★ by It is a satisfactory instrument. I have only used it locally for a short time. It is going to take some learning time, not exactly like the Garmin I had previously. I wish it would have had a wall charger included in the purchase as I don't keep it in the auto all the time and it needs to be kept charged. Would like it better if it turned off automatically when shutting down the engine. It is easy to read, I especially like the yardage feature when nearing a turning point instead of the tenths distance on the Garmin. All in all so far it is fine, will know more after a few long trips into unknown territory/cities. 11/02/2013
Rated 1 out of 5 Don't be fooled Lifetime maps are only good for 3 to 4 years, then they want to charge $99.00 a year 02/28/2014
Rated 2 out of 5★ by not worth it I have recently bought this GPS to replace my old TOMTOM. I was so disappointed because the route calcualtion is even slower than my old TOMTOM which I bought 5 years ago. in terms of hardware, i don't think there is any upgrade as compared to my old tomtom, i think the only differences is that the software is updated, such as more POIs, updated maps, better user interface. And I don't think anyone can return this product for not liking it. 12/22/2013
Rated 1 out of 5★ by Third in a row We have had four Tom Toms in the past few years and loved them all, until this year. We tried three and each one failed in a couple of weeks. Just went black. We now ordered a Garmin. 02/17/2014
