Top Customer Reviews
I have used many GPS devices such as Garmin, TomTom, Navigon, etc.. And in the end the TomTom products always seem to be superior. Every time I buy a new GPS, I sit in my driveway and do a few simple tests. The first is how fast is it ready to navigate. I don't think anyone will ever be faster than TomTom. Second, how easy is it for me to find a local store I shop at every week... for example the local Kroger's grocery store that's close to my house. Again, TomTom can help me route to this very quickly and with minimal amounts of button pushing. To be fair, other devices may be able to find the same place, but not without having to scroll through 1000 POI's, or without having to push 50 buttons... Third, I need weather and traffic, and as much information as I can get about where I am, where I am going, and what's in between.. the more information the better as far as I am concerned. TomTom again is excellent in this area and now with a built in data connection provided by a cell signal, I can have all the information that I want, anywhere and anytime. I have tried the FM traffic version of this, and the MSN version of this, but MSN is going to stop offering this service next year (2010), so don't waste your time getting a device that you plan to use MSN on, and the FM signal range and quality of data has left me a bit underwhelmed. Once again the TomToms "Live" feature has found a great way to provide real-time information to me regardless of where I am. Yes, this feature is free for the first three months, and then runs about $10 a month. If you buy this GPS, try the Live feature out for a week or so and if you don't see the value, then go back to buying printed maps, because you are not ready for the future of GPS devices. One of the interesting features of the Live service is the ability to use Google search right from the device. At first I was not sure what use this would be, then I found myself in a situation where a location I thought should be a POI was not found on the device, or perhaps I was not looking in the right place, or had the category wrong... who knows.. But I went to the Google search feature, and told it what I was looking for, and Google pulled up some listings just like it does on your computer, and I selected what I wanted, and the device created the route from that. So for some reason if the GPS device can't understand or find what you are looking for, then Google is there to fill in the gap. Another great feature of the Live service is the location of cheap gas! Yes, that's right, the Live service can tell you all about the gas prices around you, and help you get to the cheapest. Who couldn't benefit from that? Additionally, the "TomTom At Home" software that you install on your computer does a great job of updating the device, make changes to it or even plan routes or travel from it. Lots of GPS's lets you update the device from the web, but none allow as much interaction with the device outside of basic map updates then the "At Home" software. If being able to interact with the GPS device using your computer is important to you, then I would suggest getting a TomTom for now. For me, this device has all you can ask for in a car GPS (PND for you tech geeks), and the price is right. The device is advanced, yet easy to interact with, so I feel even for a first time GPS user, or non-tech type of person, you would still be very happy. I have spent a long time on my quest for a great GPS device, and I hope this little bit of information will be helpful to you on yours.
It appears my excitement may have been slightly unwarranted. That is not to say the Tomtom 340 Live doesn't have exciting features, however those tend to get lost in dealing with the unit's pecularities. The most disappointing aspect of this offering was its speech functionality. While it does speak street names, the intervals at which it does leave me puzzled and frustrated. Many times you'll just hear "Turn right in a half mile" with no mention of what street on to which you'll be turning. It will eventually say the street name; once you're right at the intersection. At 45 miles per hour in unfamiliar territory, that can create problems for the driver. Sure, if you gaze at the Tomtom's display as you're approaching the upcoming intersection, everything should be clear. Taking that approach, however, basically negates the functionality of spoken street names.
Another disappointment is the IQ routes. I could not stand the way Insignia would route me, so Tomtom would certainly improve on this task, right? Wrong. Many times these so-called shortcuts are actually longer in distance and don't save any time. If you're driving a fuel-guzzling cargo truck (like I do) that not only fails to save you time, but increases your fuel bill.
I'll also say that the Internet connectivity is an overall disappointment. The three-month paid trial is nice, but $10 per month for what Tomtom offers is not a good value in my opinion. I've had periodic outages in acquiring an Internet connection. That means if you're relying on Google for POIs, or the built-in gas price search...you might as well head to the nearest Internet Cafe. Perhaps if Tomtom lowered the price to $5/month and made the service more reliable, they'd have a winner here. I cannot speak to the issue of traffic updates as my area is not served by this feature.
Now for the positives! First and foremost is the Tomtom's satellite acquisition time. It is blazing fast. In fact, I've never seen it take longer than five seconds after a cold start-up; and this is in heavy cloud cover as well. The next thing that impressed me was the unit's ability to point out so-called "safety cameras" and speed zones along major highways. It's always nice when a GPS can potentially save you hundreds in fines and make you a safer driver all in the same move.
The screen is very nice-looking and touch response is good. Navigating through the software interface is pretty straight-forward, with a few minor exceptions. I also like the PC connectivity for updating maps and assorted travel information. Tomtom has a great idea with the user map correction which other manufacturers should consider adopting in their product lines. Battery life isn't tremendous, but with a DC adapter included, I don't really see this as a pertinent issue for vehicular users.
The Tomtom 340s is certainly passable as a GPS. Most users will find it suitable for getting around an unfamiliar city, although you should be prepared to pay close attention to the screen. The Internet/POI features are robust (when they work) and might be worth $10 per month to those who will make frequent use of them. Where the Tomtom really excels, however, is in the hardware department. Everything runs quick and fluidly from a technical standpoint.
