Tomtom one & customer services. Thought i would share my experience of owning a tomtom one sat nav. Great product, never let me down – until i tried to load a usa map (had to remove europe map and store on my computer, then load new map as this version does not have a memory card slot) needless to say it didn’t work. Customer services were fantastic – tried to talk me though the process on phone, then they realised a file on my device was corrupted, so it had to go back. I’d had it nearly 2 years, so well out of guarantee. They sent me a pre-paid mail envelope and box to pack device in. I took it to post office and received an email from tomtom 2 days later to say they had received it. Another 2 days and another email to say they were returning my device. I got it the next day and it was a brand new tomtom one – with no charge to me whatsoever. Well done tomtom – you’re the best.

I bought this sat nav recently and have been extremely pleased with it. It is quick, no glitches and re-routes without problem. I like the way the cradle is built in and feels very secure stuck to the windscreen. I also like how it knows the speed limit of every road i’m on. I find this very handy on the country and village roads without speed signs. The only minor problem i can find is there is no led on the device to let me know that it’s charging or when it has finished charging. This didn’t stop me giving the product 5 stars. Excellent value for money and i highly recommend.

Tomtom start uk & roi satellite navigation system. I purchased the tomtom start uk & roi satellite navigation system to help navigate going out in the car on jobs to places i wasn’t familiar with and it has been a great boon. The operation is fairly simple to setup with minimal fuss once you have installed their home software and downloaded all the relevant items required onto the tomtom via usb on a pc laptop or macbook pro. I have used an earlier tomtom but the sucker which holds the tomtom on the windshield was always falling off whereas with the newer tomtom start uk & roi satellite navigation system, the sucker comes complete with a pressure twist locking control which forces the tomtom to stick perfectly without any fuss and it remains firmly stuck on the windsheild. All the basic operations from the older verisons of the tomtom are included in the tomtom start uk & roi satellite navigation system so it is easy to navigate around the menu options. Being touch-screen means the operation is a breeze, just press on the small lcd screen, press on a relevant icon for a particular task and the tomtom responds in an instant. I installed some custom points of interest (poi) for speed cameras as the speed camera option which comes with the tomtom isn’t that particularly acurate or that good. Adding cameras via poi and the tomtom sounds an audio beep when you drive within a certain distance to speed cameras on any roads including motorways, is a good system to help prevent speeding or being caught speeding. Great little device, will get you to where you are going and well worth the money. Here are the specifications for the TomTom Start 3:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Maps of UK & ROI
  • Compact design with optional StartSkins available in various colours
  • New, simplified menu
  • Faster routes with IQ Routes
  • Latest map guarantee. No advanced lane guidance

They are such a great product and a life saver. I bought this so i had a tom tom in each of the cars in the household. Wouldn’t buy any other sat nav.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Excellent Sat Nav!
  • Very reliable first satnav
  • Basic reliable satnav

This is a review of tomtom customer services. I already have a tomtom satellite navigation system and use it regularly. I rate this as a 5 star product. I shall soon be travelling extensively throughout europe by road and recently saw an opportunity to purchase a spare unit quite cheaply at a sale. Although an older model, the unit was still boxed, absolutely complete and appeared to be unused. It would not, however, switch on but, thinking it needed nothing more than charging, i took a chance and bought it. I tried everything (as did my local store) but the unit simply would not switch on. Eventually, i contacted tomtom customer services and told them how i had obtained the unit and that it was ‘not’ under guarantee. Their service was exceptional. Firstly, they sent me a small package containing a cardboard box which, when assembled, fitted my tomtom unit perfectly and would clearly protect the unit whilst in the post.

Used this satnav to get me from minster in kent to the eurotunnel – supposed iq route but it was long, used every back road it could find and at times seemed to defy logic – however in fairness it did get us there and on the return journey we switched it off and chose a route back from a road atlas which was both quick and comfortable – its on sufferance and may yet end up on ebay.

Basic entry level satnav, and it works pretty well. Sometimes it takes a while to switch on, and sometimes it takes a long time to find a satellite, but once it’s up and running, works well. You can pay to update your maps, it has plug into your computer facility as well. I daresay it’s been overtaken by newer models, but it does what it says on the tin.
