TomTom GO LIVE 1005 5″ Sat Nav, OUTSTANDING SATNAV

Sat Navs
1

I upgraded to this satnav from an older tomtom product. This was part of a promotion they were running. The new satnav is outstanding – the hd traffic facility (which checks in on traffic updates by a link to tomtom’s servers using the vodafone network) is simple, fast and very useful. Coupled with iq routes this has already diverted me twice to avoid traffic problems. The mapping is almost flawless – the odd minor issue resulting from minor map errors but nothing major. I have flagged these via mapshare and will see how soon the corrections arrive. Overall, i think this is a huge improvement on the previous system, and very much the way forward for satnavs. The ability to find local features (a hotel and a beach on separate occasions) by google search is amazing.

Got us from a to b without the need for maps :-).

I deliberated for a long time before taking the plunge. The decision was between this tomtom and the traffic version of the garmin nuvi. I decided on the tomtom, as magazine reviews said that the tomtom had a more comprehensive live traffic reporting service. Apparently the garmin’s traffic covers motorways and major roads only and as the traffic facility was the major reason for upgrading from my existing original tomtom satnav, tomtom it was. Out of the box, the bigger and clearer screen is a great improvement over my original tomtom. However, setting up the device started to show why this model has been heavily criticised elsewhere. I put in my address to define home to the device. Apparently number 3 in my street does not exist, neither does number 1 or 5. This is strange since my earlier tomtom recognised my address correctly.

Everything in the best order.

Top notch & thankyou for your quick service.

TomTom GO LIVE 1005 5″ Sat Nav with Europe Maps (45 Countries) : Brilliant in principle – flawed in quality control and support. I was happy with the tomtom when i first received it – until i discovered that i could not receive the live services which come free for the first year. The tomtom support was very poor – emails sent by one person and then by another who had not read the first. . Eventually they decided the sim card was at fault and wanted me to return the device for repairs. In my view the quality control at tomtom must be poor – the device should not have been sent out without proper testing. As the device was not fit for purpose i have returned it to amazon. However i am hoping this is not a systemic quality control issue and am (nervously) going for a replacement – because if it did work as advertised i think it could be a good product.

Perfect replacement for my dead one. My trusty, old 1005 died the other week, and despite trying to resuscitate it with a new battery and charging cable, it resolutely remained dead. Tomtom warrant ran out a long time ago. But i’d kept paying for the live services and map update service. I was going to simply buy a newer device, but the latest tomtoms are a bit useless for adding your own content, so i was going to jump ship to garmin instead. Spoke to tomtom who said that if i got an identical device, they would transfer over the remaining 15 months of my services so that i didn’t have to pay for them again on the new device,so the search started for an ‘identical’ device. I couldn’t find an identical model, but managed to get this version which is a slight upgrade due to more memory & and an sd slot. Tomtom confirmed this would be fine for the account transfer. Device was in perfect working order and cosmetic condition – made my old one look really tatty.

I used this for around 8 months and it was so easy to use and handy. I brought this some time ago. It was a shame that my car got broken into and it was stolen. I used this for around 8 months and it was so easy to use and handy. Top tip, do not leave in glove box expecting a thief not to look there :(.

Great tom tom, well worth the money. I bought this to replace a tomtom one xl. I had difficulty connecting the new via to my account, and eventually realized that i had to use internet explorer instead of chrome. That was not in the instructions. I also found out that, although advertized to come with maps of the usa, canada, and mexico, it does not have enough memory to load the full set of maps. I selected a subset and they loaded is a reasonable amount of time. The instructions from the website said to insert an sd card, but there is nowhere to put an sd card. I have the device fully charged but have not used it in travel.

I would recommend to my friends. I lost my previous sat 1005, hence getting a replacement.

Excellent device but now superceded. I have had this for about 4 years and it works well. I love the lane guidance, text to speech for reading our road names, real time traffic and fast re-routing. Apart from the uk i have used it in the usa and spain and it works well abroad. Originally all the maps fitted on the devise but this is no longer the case and i can only fit a subset. Other maps can be downloaded when required. I have a plug in memory chip as well but prefer not to use it because it sometimes pops out when handled. Occasionally it locks up but the re-boot is easy. I have recently bought a new c class mercedes which has an in built garmin system but i still prefer and use the tom tom because of faster re-routing, more frequent up to date maps and speed camera alerts.

Good kit but a few to many choices and extra costs for maps etc.
