Pros Loved my TomTom GO 930, even though it wouldn't work with my verizon cell phone. Verizon's fault.
Cons I called to have my battery replaced after a little more than a year and was told they don't support it. No service. No batteries. No advice. This is the strangest company support I have ever heard of. Obviously I will never buy from them again.
Summary Paid top dollar for a product I thought would last more than a couple of years. But once a battery dies your on chained to the adaptor for what ever the life of it will be. Poorest customer service I have ever experienced. They make India tech support look good!
Pros seems to work great for a while
Cons The suction cup was defective and unit fell and cracked screen Company said even though mount was defective they wouldn't repair the screen or offer paid repair option.
Summary While Tomtom said suction cup was defective and resulted in a cracked screen, they wouldn't repair the unit or offer replacement. Long hold time on ohone. Run around when you get them. They have no repair service and just want to sell products. Customers are of no interest to them.
Pros Accurate directions, good routing
Cons Advanced features are poorly implemented
Summary The 930 is not a bad GPS overall, but since the more advanced features don't work well I could have had the same functionality for less money.
The voice recognition requires you to repeat yourself several times (if it works at all.) It also can't be accessed unless you enter a sub-menu. If I'm going to access a sub-menu I might as well just type in my destination. I could have purchased the 730 for $100 less and I would still have the same usable features.
It would be nice if tomtom would update the device and address these issues. If they do I will update my review.
Pros Basic use is great.......
Cons Trying to find things can be confusing, internal speakers at max volume can freak it out.....
Summary OK...... So I went and bought this at Best Buy. Total cost: 541.00. Get it home open box and was wow. I thought it was impressive. Its my first GPS system, and 540 dollars was a little steep. I connect it through my Blackberry Curve, connects to bluetooth no problem. FM transmitters works not great but it will get you by. Now connecting to a to a wireless data connection, is where I was i got mad. My curve is through TMobile, and TomTom is not set up for it. So all the traffic reports, the weather, tomtom buddies, updating maps, and a bunch of other coolness features i cant use because tomtom isnt set up with any phone. this is also the case with the Apple iPhone. So if you are looking at this product dont do it its not worth it.
Pros Not MUCH. Waste of good money.
Cons Maps are out of date. Has a road on map that hasn't been around for over 50 YEARS. Doen't have a road on it that is over 10 YEARS and these are within 8 miles of my house.
Summary When I called tech support, to find out why a road that hasn't been around for 50 years is on the device, the tech said that I had tounderstand that TomTom hasn't been around that long. I drive a school bus, and I would get that dumb of an answer from my PreK students. I wouldn't waste my money on any TomTom, after my experience with the 950. I had it 3 weeks before I went with the Garmin Nuvi 880. I just wish I had done that befor I bought the TomTom 930. As far as I am concerned the 930 wouldn't make a good door stop or paper weight.
