So many roads that are not listed its untrue.

 

Its a great piece of kit when it takes you to where your going, but 5 times now where I thought I would just type in the street name and go. Takes all the hassel out of looking at A TO Z 's but there are so many streets that have the same postcode in the

So bloody frustrating when the postcode has the same name more than once. Take Harding street in Hyde SK14 IT WON'T TAKE ME THWERE IT WANTS TO GO SOME WHERE ELSE. CAN YOU HELP ME ON THIS BECAUSE ITS A GREAT PIECE OF KIT, FRUSTRATED OR WHAT

Appalling Map Accuracy

 

Spent a fair sum of the last map upgrade and was very disappointed.

Well designed hardware with good battery life

Badly let down by inaccurate mapping which results in a virtually unuseable product. NOT

Excellent interface, mediocre performace, buy the TomTom Go 300 instead and save

 

After weeks of research, reading reviews, and comparison shopping between the Lowrance IWay 500c, the Garmin StreetPilot 2270, and the Tomtom go 700, I finally decided to plunk down $800 for the Tomtom Go 700. Following a week of use including a...

Quick start-up (10-15 seconds), excellent user interface, audio, and predictive text

Maps are a bit outdated, no WAAS, ASN is virtually useless

Consumer review by:

Just GO right out of the box!

 

I bought the TomTom 300 GPS unit to replace my older garmin palm/gps since it was giving me problems, was unreliable, and I didn't use palm OS part of it.

Simple interface, easy to use, includes all maps, built-in clear speaker, no real setup

Brighter screen/sun shield, screen is a bit on the small side

TomTom Steers Me Wrong!

 

I purchased a TomTom navigator system six months ago based on good experiences with renting cars with Magellan's Neverlost. The Magellan unit was very expensive and I found the TomTom had a superior user interface, was portable and less costly. So I...

Great user interface, graphics, speech, battery life and portability

Awful map and POI database has lead me astray on every long-distance trip

Consumer review by:

Nice application, horrible maps ruin this product

 

I have used TomTom products before and always liked the interface and application but always had problems with the maps. When I saw the "Go" come out, I was hoping that they had switched to NAVTEQ data, but apparently not.

Nice size, good application

The maps (from TeleAtlas) are wrong or not there at all

Consumer review by:

Great software makes this GPS great

 

While most GPS devices have the same underpinning hardware technology, whether a GPS navigation system works or not really depends on the navigation software -- and Tomtom's GO in-car system is perhaps the best because its software is accurate, easy to...

Very nice software, portable, voice directions

Expensive, GPS slow at times

Consumer review by:

Good standalone unit, but not perfect

 

For the price, it's a lot cheaper and more flexible than in-car systems. I have used Garmin and Navman units and whilst this unit is good, it could be better. Main gripes..

Cheap, idiot-proof navigation, good maps, nice extras

Poor screen in sunlight, inflexible mapping displays

Consumer review by:

Great Hardware Marred by Poor Map Routing

 

(updated 9/10/2004)

fast, accurate satellite lock, quick map redraws, great sound, touchscreen

price, durability(?), reflective screen, UNACCEPTABLE MAP ACCURACY
