# Username GPS model Pros Cons Rating
51 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.
52 andy.wpg TomTom Start 45 Good screen
Map is much more accurate now
Not as configurable as my old One130 7
53 jsode425 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. 8
54 mightymic TomTom VIA 1605TM Big Screen, good traffic updates No Bluetooth on this model 6
55 GDT-tc 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. 7
56 rwpegg TomTom Go2535 M Live Live Traffic,
Fast Recalculations,
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. 7
57 maxibaldi 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 6
58 bravo-GPS Tomtom Go940 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... 7
59 rljoice4 TomTom Go720 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. 8
60 laurent.coeffic Tomtom Carminat 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. 6
61 crumbaughs TomTom Via 1500 Evrything included and ready to go - nice screen size - easy to use Updating and customizing is a pain 8
62 rossmurphy88 TomTom Traffic, directions, visual layouts. Quiet, battery dies very quickly, glare from sun makes it very hard to see.  
63 edwin.vlasblom 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. 8
64 dpk Tomtom GO825 Live Excellent functionality, easy to use, clear screen layout, logical buttons, bright display. Harder to customise than earlier models eg GO730 etc. 7
65 derek_rose Tomtom One IQ Routes Very Intuitive and easy to use. Lots of support Slow to update when driving 6
66 bass00069 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. 8
67 manu.pes tomtom via 125 very good gps with high-speed route calculation. recommend. tomtom after sale service not great  
68 bverywitty TomTom XXl 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. 7
69 charast TomTom Via1535TM 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  
70 grwilson TomTom G1000 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. 6
71 eandresen 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.  
72 mariob44 TomTom Via 220 (Start 20) Beautiful interface
Great Navigation
Early voice instructions.
Clear lane guidance, but only works in Navigation mode.
Touchy Sometimes does not start up without pushing power button Bong fest out of the box. Thinks there is a school on every corner. 3
73 tom.clayton 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 8
74 sa_-GDT44 TomTom XL Old, but still usable. Slow CPU, no additional features. Sometimes have to wait 2-3 minutes to get GPS signal. 6
75 fella_mo 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. 6
76 l.zhou TomTom Good easy to use, very friendly user interface. does everything I need windscreen mount somehow couldn't be attached to window properly 8
77 RobHossack TomTom Go 750 Live This unit suits my needs almost perfectly, which is usually for navigating on my own planned routes, often on UK and French secondary roads and back roads without having to constantly refer to maps and scripted route notes. Also great for finding unknown addresses at street level. A great improvement on my original TomTom910, which was often unreliable. Live functions very useful. None really, but a few extra features would be good - e.g. ability to view a prepared itinerary from the point of departure rather than your present location (important when you are planning a route from A to B, when in fact the unit knows your at C) I think the map updating costs and speed camera alerts are overpriced. 8
78 pdb44 TomTom Go 910 Good interface. Excellent image quality. Excellent sound. Bluetooth data connectivity. Good storage with internal hard drive. Its HUGE - due to hard drive and battery. Battery life poor - needs to be connected. This unit sometimes passes out due to heat in sunny environment. Quite heavy. 5
79 DALeven87 TomTom Via 1405 The big screen is great, and its really compact which is also incredibly nice. Limited to no access of POIs and voices 6
80 knollsoft TomTom Gets you from A to B, allows you to select alternate routes, avoiding parts of the route for a more rural journey. Only thing is that the via option is not brilliant. 8
81 andrewjackie2 tomtom one xl HD Traffic robust, cheap and reliable limited support and maps from Tomtom 7
82 aemartin4 TomTom 720 Go Fully updateable. They don't make them any more.
If you can get your hands on a second hand one, go for it!
Not many. In fact, I can't think of any! 9
83 ppsucks TomTom GO LIVE 1005 Europe Large (5), clear screen.

Browser-based upload for POIs, Voices, etc.
Slow to roll out software updates for European models, US models tend to get them first. Mapping data not always up to date. Shows roads that ceased to exist several years previously, and doesn't always show new roads in good time. 7
84 michael44 TomTom Go 910 Excellent older GPS system with large 30 gig harddrive. Enables you to have North American and European maps on one device. Can also download audio books, if desired. The automatic sensor to switch between day and night driving eventually failed and now it must be done manually. The unit is a little heavy compared to newer models. 8
85 ron-GDT4 TomTom Go 910 All info on hard disk Does not show position countrywide 4
86 jean-marc TomTom and Mercedes Comand TomTom: ease of use

Mercedes Comand: Good integration
TomTom: Upgrade of map expensive  
87 l_modra TomTom GO 930 On-screen indication of upcoming turns
Time to Destination
direction (N-E-S-W)
The current road/street name can be obscured by the route display 7
88 johnst59 TOMTOM xl live Clearly shows which lane to take at junctions so you don’t miss your turning. On the most difficult highway intersections, realistic 3D representation of the junction keeps you relaxed and safe. The different alert sounds are very similar. Does not automatically pick up mobile speed cameras. 4
89 jcolecrowe TomTom XXL 540 TM World Edition Love it. 8/10. Always gets me to an address in an efficient, smart, easy manner. Routes make sense. Accurate. Good traffic info and rerouting. IQ routes are amazing--a colossal improvement over the older tomtoms without it--great concept, great effectiveness. Lackluster POI system, especially the terrible POI search. Seems like theyre 10 years behind what they could have done with the POI part. Sometimes takes more than 2 or 3 minutes to get a signal, for no good reason. Usually less than a minute though. Would give anything if it always, always said what the turn after the next one would be, would be so easy to do, and would make driving so much easier and safer. 7
90 cds Tomtom Via 2535TM So far so good. Great voice recognition. Clear maps. More memory than similar brands. No sd card slot. Mytomom is still very weak. SSSLLLOOW map updates. 7
91 kamchatsk TomTom ONE Small, compact, easy to use. Not the fastest device around, No live services 6
92 alderson.dunn TomTom ONE NEW EDITION Compact and well built Out of date so lacks the features of new TomTom models  
93 zalewr TomTom 2405 lifetime maps

voice activation
need to hold down power button to activate license agreement EVERY time you power on is annoying. touch screen not sensitive enough. 6
94 tassie_julie14 Tomtom Live 100 TomTom live 100. Easy to use. clear description of directions There is no acompaning information stating download problems can occur if not done via firefox ie not Internet Explorer. Map oddities occur ie road system about Cribbs in Bristol is approx 4 years behind 7
95 p-l-PDB TomTom Go Live 1000 Clear voice output
Good visibility
Very good magnetic window holder
Easy handling
2 years GSM live services included
3 years free map updates included
Quick position finding
TomTom hasnt fixed the PC-Softwareproblems - no additional content available with MyTomTom. No SD card slot available. 8
96 Waltbop22 TomTom VIA 1530 Lots of features for the buck TomTom customer service does not know a lot abot this unit 5
97 TomTom GO730 like the speed limits vs current speed, generally good mapping and routing not all the roads are there (like many gps) 8
98 PaulaFoster TomTom One Easy to program. Clear visible screen. No speech announcement of streets. Some map inaccuracies. Cannot easily specify desired route adjustments to route planned by the GPS. 7
99 m.s.schoonman Tomtom Go 730 Stable. Lots of options. MP3 player on board. Touchscreen is bad. Use a stylo, not your finger. GPS location is slow 6
100 daniel.brugger TomTom GO 1000 Live - HD traffic (real time traffic information - just available in Europe?) is unbeatable
- routing is almost perfect; ETA is very accurate
- slow reaction on user interaction - very limited extensibility and multimedia capabilities (compared to elder GO devices) 6
