||Very good. Good graphics. Accurate.
||Too many menus to add a POI on the fly. Poor battery life. Takes far too long to download updates.
||TomTom Go Live 825
good live info
|internet connections is slow when doing a local search
||TomTom225 & Nuvi 40
||I find that the TomTom is easier to use then the Nuvi.
||Won't show custom poi file that I have put in the Nuvi
TomTom is much easier to put poi files in
||Ease of use.
Very competitive pricing.
|No verbal street names.
||TomTom GoLive 1005 Camper andd Caravan
||Very quick boot up time.
Seems to work as advertised by routing to avoid routes not suitable when towing a caravan
|Very slow updates time.
Although it shows which lane to be in when leaving a motorway or dual carriageway, it is slow to show the next turning and so often you end up in the wrong lane.
Mapping in the main is very accurate but as with a number of GPSs (I have several), local knowledge shows much shorter routes in several instances than the SatNav plots
||TomTom 2535 TM WTE
||Accurate maps, excellent plotting of fastest routes, clear vocal instructions, prompt notifications of alternate routes in case of traffic problems.
||Some knowledge of computer operations is a minimal requirement, as well as thorough reading of manual and other documentation provided with device before getting started. Some maintenance and updates cannot be done by self, but only with help of customer service.
||rugged - use it on motorcycle
||Only 50 waypoints maximum
||TomTom / iPhone 4S
||simply the best. never misses to get me to my destination.
||not much to configure for the geeks. just comes as is.
||This 3rd Garmin GPs, Had StreetPilot 530, Nuvi680 . Very fast startup (warm/cold). Very accurate navigation, Voice Commands are great feature that is a necessity with demnrit points tickets these days. Sound is loud and automatically bumps up with noise. Easy mount, Mini-USB connector. SD card slot. If purchased from Costco, comes with dashboard base.
||Bluetooth profile is for phones only, could not pair with Car audio system.
Smartlink SW Android must turn the GPS sensor on my cellphone which drains the battery and defeat the purpose of standalone GPS. I could have stick with my Tomtom Android on the phone.
traffic cable is extra.
Does not play MPS, does not have audio jack, if speaker dies, good luck.
||TomTom go 825
||Fairly easy to navigate, good clear screen, good reaction time during manouvres. I like the voice control. Mount is solid and precise.
||Navigate via needs improving, I find it doesn't always do what I want it to do.
||Tomtom One IQ Routes
||It is quite OK and until now always took me to destination
||When the battery is completely empty, it takes too long to recharge the minimum to get started
Sometimes takes too long to find the satellite signal
||Larger screen than my original One system.
Voices announce names of roads, towns and route numbers as well as onscreen view.
More memory than One
|There are still areas where Tom Tom does not come close to navigating the local roads, not just the XL, but all Tom Toms.
||tomtom one xl
||Fast to recover the trace, fast to recalculate the travel. loads of memory, loads of information.
Easy to update maps, voices and pois.
|The battery lifetime is weak, I am on the third already, the colors are a bit abrasive, the sound is not so spectacular as announced.
||Easy to use, fast enough
||It doesn't zoom exact where you want.
||Tomtom Rider 2013
||Pretty solid device, love the calculation of winding roads with a lot of curves
||A bit bulky and the installation manual is not good. A little more guidance on how to best place would have been helpful
||Traffic live services and google search are great.
||Slow to refresh when there is a lot going on.
||Tomtom Rider 2
||Adaptability from motorcycle to car, with excellent docks supplied for both.
Maps constantly updated, and more accurate than other devices used
|Lack of memory, and inability to expand it
||TomTom Via 130
||Easy, intuitive operation. When you come upon a complex intersection, it goes into a mode where the actual lane you need to be in is shown, and stays in that mode throughout the intersection. Very useful.
||Can take some time to start up. Doesn't seem as accurate as our last TomTom. The lane visualization is great unless there are multiple route/lane changes within a complex interchange. If the Lane Mode stays on too long it can be difficult to know where to go next!
||Tomtom Go 910
||Very good old device. Configurable more than other i had. Im using it with implemented mp3 player together with preamp, amp, and subwoofer. Faster than Tomtom Go live 825. Ive sold 825 even it has live traffic and cameras because it was massivelly slow.
||No live services. cant see any real weaknesses. Might be usefull more tts voices (more clear voices). Another issue I found little annoing - no constant adjustable zoom for navigation mode.
Id like to have constant always same zoom or event better zoom related to speed with limits controlled by user - so minimum and maximum zoom.
||Very good GPS device. easy to use and update
||The worst windscreen mounting ever, takes a lot of effort to attach the device to the mounting
||TOMTOM Go 730
||This is an OLD one, but it still works! Be sure to pick a TomTom that has itineraries (for you pilots out there, its like waypoints on an INS). Also, if you want to operate it via your computer, get a model that uses TomTom Home(r) to connect.
||The battery is only good for a few minutes, but it is an old machine.
||TomTom Start 1EX00
||It is an entry level model. The menu is easy to use. It allows you to save favourites, pois. Good ratio price/quality.
||No Advanced lane guidance available. Limited number of favourites (48). Difficult to browse the route on map.
||TomTom VIA 1505TM
||Traffic feature usually works well (if warmed up)
Speaks street names (computer voice only)
Seems quite capable of navigating
Overall, I'm quite happy with it
|It seems to take a few minutes for the device to warm up with respect to knowing current traffic conditions. As a result, I have to use my own judgement at first. Also, it sometimes keeps me on a congested street, when it seems that it would be faster to deke around on some side streets.
||TomTom GO 2535TM WTE
||clear concise directions especially turn announcements that include street names
||limited voice commands that then require manual selection which just happens to be illegal when moving
||TomTom Go Live 1000
||Flexible and fully featured
||Less than 90 minutes battery life under normal usage. Occasional update issue when connected to PC
||TomTom Via 1500
||Was on a great sale
Generally easy to use for simple point to point navigation
|PC software is poor
Multiple point navigation/trips hard to set up
PC software does not let you manage GPS like a Garmin does.
||TomTom Start 45
Map is much more accurate now
|Not as configurable as my old One130
||TomTom Sony XNV
||Excellent implementation of TomTom on a 7 model. All of the features on an all-in-one car radio package.
||Can be slow, and unresponsive, at times.
||TomTom VIA 1605TM
||Big Screen, good traffic updates
||No Bluetooth on this model
||TomTom VIA 1500
||Better operation in bright sunlight than previous TomTom models. Reasonably quick satellite acquisition and route calculation times.
||Worst issue with all TomToms is the reliance on the internal battery. The battery is a planned obsolescence item. It should continue to run whenever connected to 12v regardless battery condition. Traffic receiver cannot be depended on.
||TomTom Go2535 M Live
Ability to manually correct & submit map errors,
Screen visibility good even in bright sunlight,
Glass touch screen very responsive.
Google search works well.
|Must manually clear route when reaching destination, which gets to be annoying.
mytomtom web updates are cumbersome,
Can't tell direction to POIs, just distance, which makes it hard to decide if they are on/near route.
||tomtom one 3 europe
||is very versatile and easy to handle. also lends itself to be updated both at the software level, either as an addition of points of interest and various applications. Adapting, the port also on the bike
||It has several hardware limitations that prevent them using the latest technologies such as lane change indicator. It also has the small screen compared to the more recent devices
||HD Traffic System: At least in Europe all devices are connected to a central server via built-in cellphone modem forming a cloud that reports traffic conditions to that server and which is updated every 3 minutes. Especially in urban areas this works very well. This compensates all the weaknesses (see below)
||Very instable SW: Frequent reboots, need to reset the device due to disappering functionality (no more spoken directions, stubbornly refusing to connect to the mobile network). Strange reproducible effects related to GPS reception: Crashes in 8 out 10 cases when you turn it on in a garage, MP3 playback that will be interrupted for a spoken direction will not recommence when you are driving through a tunnel...
||The TomTom Go720 is an excellent performer. Standard features include the provision of an SD card and FM transmission to the car radio.
||Image quality is not as good as current models. The mounting on to the supplied windscreen bracket is awkward and this particular model is prone to early battery failure.
||Cest un très bon appareil, très intuitif, facile dutilisation. Grâce aux services Live, il est possible de connaître précisément létat des embouteillages et ainsi gagner du temps.
||La télécommande nest pas très pratique et on perd parfois du temps à saisir les adresses. Les nouvelles cartes coûtent très cher.
||TomTom Via 1500
||Evrything included and ready to go - nice screen size - easy to use
||Updating and customizing is a pain
||Traffic, directions, visual layouts.
||Quiet, battery dies very quickly, glare from sun makes it very hard to see.
||TomTom GO940 Live
||This Tomtom has kept me on my way across Europe, Australia and the US. Good quality maps with navigational assists. Clear view on big screen.
||Audio for phone by Tomtom is not great, but workable. Sometimes shortest route is taken too literally, esp. in rural areas in Europe at small urban settlements.
||Tomtom GO825 Live
||Excellent functionality, easy to use, clear screen layout, logical buttons, bright display.
||Harder to customise than earlier models eg GO730 etc.
||Tomtom One IQ Routes
||Very Intuitive and easy to use. Lots of support
||Slow to update when driving
||TOMTOM GO 2535
||It has a large, clear display. It maps out routes very quickly. Plus it comes with lifetime maps.
||HD traffic is by subscription only.
||tomtom via 125
||very good gps with high-speed route calculation. recommend.
|| tomtom after sale service not great
||This is my first GPS. Strengths are this GPS is reliable most of the time, pretty accurate, I like the 4.3 in. screen and the maps navigate easily.
||Weaknesses are every once in awhile it is incorrect and misleads you, sound is not loud enough, slow at start up and the car charger cord has not worked since I bought the TomTom GPS and accessories.
||so far it works well. only a few times it has taken me a tad out of my way. Nice large screen and speaks street names fairly ok.
||MyTomTom device update software is weak at best. Nothing like TomTomHome which is alot better.
can get a bit confused in parking lots
||Great algorithm for navigation. I know people with other brands who have been taken via long and unnecessary routes.
||Battery Life is poor. Original battery died and was replaced under warranty. It took weeks to get back. Still not the software of the older models available eg overseas maps.
||Blue & Me TomTom 2 LIVE
||Integrates with Fiat and is the unit sold with the Fiat in the US.
||Does not have the LIVE service contrary to its name... Seems to be a stripped down version of the less expensive off the shelf version.
||TomTom Via 220 (Start 20)
Early voice instructions.
Clear lane guidance, but only works in Navigation mode.
Sometimes does not start up without pushing power button
Bong fest out of the box.
Thinks there is a school on every corner.
||TomTom Start 25
||Bought in Spain from Lidi, having all the Lidi Spanish stores
||Does not have an easy way to add additional lists from other Supermarket chains
||Old, but still usable.
||Slow CPU, no additional features. Sometimes have to wait 2-3 minutes to get GPS signal.
||tomtom 825 europe
||I have to admit the HD live feature works very well. I do like the 5' screen and the lane guidance feature works very well.
||Battery life is only 2.5hrs at it's best. so i'm constantly finding it more convenient to leave it plugged in the car charging, which isn't good for the long term battery life.
