TomTom GO 700

 

Review: Last July, the TomTom GO got our engines revving as this supercool automotive GPS won our Editors' Choice award for its portability, its accuracy, and its awesome navigation features. Since then, we've anxiously been anticipating the company's...

We're suckers for two-for-one deals, so we were thrilled to hear that the TomTom GO 700 has integrated Bluetooth. This new and exciting feature lets you use the device not only as a navigation aid but also for hands-free control of your cell phone....

Although TomTom improved the touch screen on the GO 700 to display 4,096 colors (rather than 256), that's still not very eye-popping or bright compared with today's laptops, PDAs, or even cell phones. We'd like to see more in-car GPS manufacturers make...

If the TomTom GO 700 performs anything like its predecessor, the future of this plug-and-go automotive GPS device looks very bright. Plus, the GO 700 offers a couple of features the competition doesn't, so we're anxious to take the new Bluetooth...

TomTom GO 700 Car GPS Navigation Unit Review

 

The TomTom GO 700 is one of two models in TomTom's car GPS navigation range to have a built-in HDD (hard disk drive) with the premium GO 900 model being the other. If you've looked at the entry level GO 900 and have wanted hands-free phone calls using...

Can TomTom's Go 700 GPS Save a Marriage Part I

 

For Barry Gerber it was either buy a GPS or get divorced by his wife. He chose the GPS. But, what to buy? Join Gerber, a long time GPS owner wannabe, as he tests what he hopes will be the GPS that saves his marriage.

The TomTom Go 700 is a well thought out GPS that's easy to use. It's also loaded with a range of great features including a number of easy to use options for building and modifying routes. On the highway it's, here comes that word again, easy to use...

TomTom GO 700 GPS Receiver

 

The TomTom GO 700 GPS receiver comes ready-to-go out of the box. Theintegrated GPS antenna finds your location quickly by simultaneously tracking up to 12 satellites. The compact design makes it easy to take it from car to car.

Nice Product - Too bad about the (non)Support

 

Stay away from TomTom unless you have an inordinately high tolerance for customer dis-service. Their online support is exceedingly difficult to navigate. You never get a reply from them for your questions - you must go back online to see if they've...

Consumer review by:

Nice, clunky, and no customer service

 

The product is fine and does what the GPS receiver is designed to do. However the battery no longer holds a sufficient charge and automatically turns off when plugged into a power source, such as a car adaptor, USB cable, or wall charger. Went to:...

Good sound, easy to program, accurate mapping

Less than two years use, battery no longer holds a charge, difficult to get customer service rendering the product almost useless. Product should last longer than 22 months

Needs updating

 

All in all this is an good unit. It does tend to take you the zig zag way rather than a more direct, faster route regardless of the setting but...it will get you there. You can connect it to your computer and update it but....they don't update it much....

large touch screen, easy to read

no truck routes so use while towing is out. Takes you out of the way at times
