TomTom GO 630 Review

 

The TomTom GO 630 is one of the more popular devices from the TomTom stable. It has a 4.3-inch display and is a fairly inexpensive device with some high end features. The TomTom Go 630 is rated highly by both users and reviewers elsewhere. Read on to...

TomTom GO 630

 

The TomTom GO 630 is essentially the GO 730 minus a few audio features; the 630 drops the FM transmitter, the MP3 player and iPod connectivity.

The TomTom GO 630 sports a 4.3" touch screen, maps of the U.S. and Canada, along with text-to-speech. The latter feature means that you’ll hear "turn left on Oak Street" rather than just "turn left in 1/4 mile." It also includes TomTom’s Map Share...

Review and Tutorial of TomTom GO 630 GPS

 

for those of us who do not have one of those cars and still require the convenience and practicality of GPS, there are numerous affordable units on the market, like the TomTom GO 630.

Consumer review by:

Extremely informative and practical GPS receiver.

 

Absolutely love this unit. Can really be used as your transportation "command (information) centre". Provides lots of very useful information. very user friendly after you spend a bit of time getting to know it (After exploring the Tom Tom website and...

Lots : Audible and visual directions, navigation via verbal input and text, bluetooth ready for interaction with cell. phone, ETA info.,distance to destination (Miles/Kilometers), exceeding posted speed limit warning, downloadable voices and vehicles

Only 1 and it's not performance related. I wish the USB port would be recessed in back of screen so the bottom of the screen could rest on a flat surface. Pretty much a non factor unless it's super important to you. There are alternatives

Consumer review by:

works for me better than garmin 265

 

i like mostly the anti glare screen its not something which will make ur eyes tired. other thing tells you exact distance which is left for your destination

there is nothing to dislike on this particular unit

TomTom Go 630 Review

 

Overall, this is a very nice, windshield mounted GPS navigation system. The ability to make your own corrections, share with others, and receive corrections is awesome. The feature to plot a course based on when you?re driving is very nice, especially...

Lots of features, many of which aren't available on most other GPS navigation systems. My full review is here ; http://csharpner.blogspot.com/2009/08/tomtom-go-630-review_15.html

Attaching to mount is difficult ; So many features, hard to find the one you're looking for ; A little bulky

Not As Good As Advertised

 

I was very excited to get this GPS unit, however, the excitement did not last long.

Consumer review by:

One of the best

 

This is my second TomTom GPS. Re-certified units come with updated maps and a free map upgrade. Don't use your map upgrade right away. Save it. If you're new to GPS Units, turn you unit's direction talk back thingy down to a very low volume. It's...

This can't be much of a review. All I can say is that it works and it works better than my Garmin ever did

I can't think of any. Oh yeah. One con - No GPS thingy is perfect. A friend of mine says that her TomTom has an attitude

The Great and the Bad

 

If I had to buy again I would buy a similar model without the bluetooth and perhaps save a few bucks. I got this (new, not refurb) at such a great price at another online retailer (about $130) that the bluetooth issue doesn't bother me.

Basic GPS functions are outstanding. Very accurate voice guidance and route calculation. Easy to use menu system. Very intuitive. Auto zoom at turning points. Millions of POI's. Bright screen. If you want great navigation you won't be disappointed with...

Bluetooth compatibility is spotty. I easily got it to connect to my ATT Samsung Impression first try and was able to make/receive calls. I could not get the data connection to work at all - the impression is not compatible. On subsequent attempts to...
