Hi, the article is so wonderful, I am interested in it. I will pay attention to your articles.Enjoy to read your write

I really like the TomTom, but I srtgnoly recommend buying new the refurbished version has (in my case) 18 month old maps on it and they will not allow you to update them for free will cost me an additional 90.00 Other than that, the computer interface, ability to update non-map information and ease of use is excellent. But the maps were a big disappointment (from Ohio to Myrtle Beach there were several times it thought I was driving through fields because of new road areas).

Ugur

that it would take about 10 minutes to get a latcoion/signal when turning it on after travelling great distances and found this to be true. I did find the same problem as other people- some of the newer roads were not on the map. But I still never got lost and that was great. You can save your hotel as a favorite address and never lose your way home. It was also great for finding gas stations, amusement parks, restaurants, etc. My 9 year old son loves to watch it and tell me what streets we have to turn on. I always know where I am, how far I have to go to the next turn, how far I have to go in my trip and what time I am expected to be there. Barring any traffic problems, I have found it to be very accurate. I shopped around at various stores testing out similar Garmin and Magellen models and kept coming back to this one. My husband is a skeptic and does not read directions. I showed him how to use this in 10 minutes. Now he uses it for his own trips (when I am not using it of course.) The portability makes it easy to take from one car to another. I bought a medium sized camera bag to store the unit in. I just detach the entire unit from the windshield and put it in the camera bag (still attached to the windshield mount.) This makes it easy to carry in and out of my house (I was told to avoid extreme temperatures to prevent damage to the LCD screen.) It also gives me the ability to put the bag in my trunk when leaving my car while in the city. I have been using this unit daily since I got it for Christmas (4 months ago). I have found the windshield mount to be quite easy, convenient and stable. On only 2 occassions, the unit could not locate an address, one of which was a 10 year old house, and had to use MapQuest as back up. Overall, I think this unit is great and have recommended it to many people. I can't imagine how I did this job without this unit! This is mandatory equipment for anyone who spends a lot of time on the road.

Wow, where do I start? After waiting 6 mohnts for this product to come out I discovered that our local Best Buy had received 6 units. I scrambled down to snag one thinking that they would all be gone during the 10 minutes it took me to drive there. After purchasing, I took the time to open and inspect the unit before I left the parking lot. Good thing I did because the $800 device was packaged in a brittle egg carton type material that completely disintegrated and the GPS was free to rattle around in the box during shipping. I tried to power up and nothing .dead in the box. I took the unit back in to the store and showed them what happened and they said they would get me another one. Fortunately I asked them to open the box of the new one and to our surprise, the same thing had happened. They opened all 6 boxes and 5 out of 6 devices were damaged to some degree. You would think that they would spend more than 10 cents to package a $800 GPS. Reluctantly I accepted the one unit that did not appear damaged and DID power up. Upon power up the first thing you notice is that the default language is NOT English. You spend the next half hour trying to find the language change screen while blind because it is several layers into the menu and instructions on how to change is not in the manual. I powered up and decided to give it a try and map my way home. One of the features of the 910 that attracted me to it was the text to speech that allows the unit to say street names and not gut turn right , etc. Guess what .not supported in English and feature is grayed out in the menu. The second feature that really attracted me to the TOM TOM GO 910 was Bluetooth and being able to use my Bluetooth phone hands free . Disappointment #2 .Blackberry devices are not supported. Actually there are not that many phones that are supported after looking at the TOM TOM web site. Being that the Blackberry is one of the most popular Bluetooth devices out there, and there are more Blackberries on this planet than any other cell phone, you would think that it would be supported. I just don't get that since I can buy a cheap $30 Bluetooth headset and it connects to ALL Bluetooth devices. My next observation was the strange mounting system for the 910. The only option you have is the windshield mount that comes with the 910. The suction cup mounting is well designed and works great but the other end that mates to the 910 is just insane. It has a weird connector which requires the user to couple the two ends at just the right angle to engage the electrical connector and lock the two ends together. Now disconnecting is a different story. Be prepared to get out a crow bar to separate the two. Ok, I'm exaggerating but not by much. There is a release button on the front of the 910 that you press and is supposed to disengage the 910 from the mount. Not so easy! You must press the button and pull REALLY hard to separate. I mean so hard that you think that it is going to break. This requires you to remove the entire system from your windshield since it would be almost impossible to disengage the 910 from the mount while it's still on your windshield. Want another mounting option other than your windshield? Forget it, it's not an option. Actually, there are no options or accessories currently available for the 910. I'm sure that they will have them eventually on their web site but not yet. Ok back to my first nav trip home. The 910 worked flawlessly and took me right to my front door. When I arrived I went to clear the current route from the 910 and could not figure it out. I spent the next 20 minutes going from menu to menu to find an option to clear the route and NOTHING. Finally I found a option button to add more menu items. I selected that and it added several more layers of menu items. I paged through all the menu items and found on the very last page a button to Clear Route . YOU HAVE TO BE KIDDING ME! I could go on but will leave it here. One last thing .be real careful to check the availability of the Tom Tom Plus features because not all of them are available in the USA either. In summary, I traded a prefectly good Garmin 2620 StreetPilot for the 910 and really regret it. I should have waited for the new Garmins with Bluetooth to come out this fall.

Review: I decided it was flianly time to get myself a GPS navigation system for my car. I went into the store and had the clerk help me choose one. I had only a few requirements 1) It would have to be something that can be easily moved between cars and could be removed and brought inside.2) It had to be easy to use.3) It had to offer voice prompts.4) The maps had to be upgradable.5) It had to be reasonably priced.The clerk recommended the TomTom Go 300 as the one that would fit my needs. I compared its features with others and decided that it was indeed the one that fit my requirements.When it came to ease of use, I couldn't believe how far along these devices have come. I left the store and got into my car, tore open the box, entered my home address, stuck it on the windshield, and was happily being directed home. Here are what I consider the strong advantages to this unit.1) It's small and extremely portable. The rechargeable battery means that for short trips (an hour or two), you don't even have to plug it into a cigarette lighter in your car.2) The screen is very visible and easy to see. Even when I had it mounted in my convertible (with the top down on a bright sunny day), it was quite easy to see the screen and get directions.3) While I don't expect the directions to always be the fastest or shortest routes (roads do change frequently, new ones are built, map info is inherently out of date), it surprised me by picking out good routes that avoided toll roads.4) It did a wonderful job of recalculating my routes when I left the chosen route and took my own. If there's a turnoff or on-ramp that isn't displayed, or if you know that a certain road will work better for you than what is recommended, by all means, take it. Once you deviate from the path, it immediately calculates a new route based on where you are.5) It's VERY portable. Since it has rechargeable batteries, is small, and light, it's even possible to bring it with you while walking through a city and have it guide you.6) It uses SD cards to store its data. While a hard drive lets you store more data, a hard drive is also very mechanical and can fail more easily than an electronic SD card. Also, SD cards are getting so large now, you can easily (and inexpensively) have one with 2GB of storage (approaching the storage capabilities of hard drives).7) The 3-D navigation view is surprisingly easy to follow. It's wonderfully easy to glance at its screen and see your exits and turns coming up in the distance.I sat back and tried to think of disadvantages to this unit, and here's the ones I came up with 1) I can't comment on durability or tech support. I haven't needed to call tech support yet, and haven't dropped it or abused it in any way to make a determination on durability.2) It has a suction-cup mounting arm that affixes to your windshield very securely. It can be a tad tricky getting it onto the arm. You have to apply it at an angle, make sure it's perfectly straight, and apply more than just a little pressure to get it to snap into place. The arm can be tricky to remove from the windshield should you want to move it to a different car (the arm really grabs onto your windshield and doesn't want to let go).Those are the only faults I can find as I've only used the unit for a week now. But all in all, I found the device to be great. It does exactly what I want it to do (get me to places without having to resort to printed maps from online sites) at a very reasonable price.

Review: In general it works great hoewver major issue is that in many of the illinois communities (unincorporated communities) it is not possible to find the these business and residential locations. Mainly be cause you cannot enter a letter in the house number addresses are 4N312 Illinois Aveor 32W432 dumbdumb st.,So not very useful. so far the Garmins, Magellans and Nuvis all work for these addresses. TOMTOM needs to get on the ball.

Review: This product worekd fine for the 11 minutes it worekd. I bought it, used it to get home as a test, and it worekd well. Went to update it, which you must do via your computer at home. ANY INTERRUPTION IN AN UPDATE WILL CORRUPT THE UNITS INTERNAL FILES IRREPERABLY! In my case my anti-virus software happened to download an update. This rendered it into a 100 dollar paperweight. This was confirmed with tech support. Luckily it was returnable, and I bought a Garmin.

Review: Having owned a TomTom One-125 of which I enjoyed using exepct for its lack of text to speech', I ordered the One-S thinking it was essentially the same unit exepct with text to speech' added. WRONG I was !The One-S is actually chunkier and thicker than the 125 and utilizing a larger windshield mount, and is basically only the much older TomTom One 3rd edition with text to speech added. My biggest disapointment with the One-S (at least the one I received) is its poor routing navigation. When programing it to take me from point A to point B (fastest route), instead of taking me on main streets with timed traffic lights, it kept directing me off onto small streets with stop signs' at nearly every block, even though a major street was only 2 blocks away. Navigating me down many blocks of small streets with only stop signs required me to wait a long time (at stop signs) while attempting to cross busy major streets which have the right of way'.Sorry to say, I've subsequently returned the One-S.
