Top Customer Reviews
I have built in navigation systems in my wife's Honda Pilot and my BMW M3. This easily blows both of those systems out of the water. I see myself taking this with me when traveling to avoid using the rental car systems.
There were some unexpected pros to this:
- I loved the windshield mount and the way the cord attaches to the mount while the unit attaches through magnets - very clean and easy to take in and out of the car.
- the telephone bluetooth integration is perfect. It easily works with my blackberry 9700, downloaded my phonebook and easily routed my calls. It also will read emails and text messages for me.
- the speaker is very loud and the voices are easy to understand
- the battery lasts (nearly) forever - I would easily consider taking a weekend trip only running on batteries.
- the traffic integration is terrible. It only works when connected through the DC cord (not on battery - it seems the transceiver is part of the cord), and it takes forever to locate a Clear Channel traffic signal (I live outside NYC, with tons of high power Clear Channel signals nearby). The unit also seems to include downloaded traffic, but that appears limited to ongoing construction and known congestion (the kind that is always there) - not an accident on the highway.
- the screen is beautiful under ideal conditions, but is highly reflective and not good at an angle. It found myself constantly adjusting it when driving down the highway in bright sunlight.
- I couldn't figure out how to keep it zoomed out. On long trips (a few hours), I like to keep my navigation zoomed out so you can really see your progress. This keeps automatically zooming in each time there is one of those "stay in the left lane to stay on the highway" directions.
A note for bikers - the unit includes the ability to navigate for walking or biking too. However, there is absolutely no way I could figure to mount this to a bike. There is nothing on the unit itself to attach a zip tie or anything, and I could not locate a bike mount that would work with the magnet attachment this requires.
Overall, this is a great unit and TomTom has done a great job with the interface and (most) routing. I deducted one star (would be one and a half if possible) for the traffic integration and the screen reflections.
Well designed: excellent suction cup mount, magnetic device mount and magnetic power cable connector. All very easy to use. Nice glass screen.
Nice easy to use interface: The user interface and software have been redesigned to look and function a little more like the Garmin, and yet TomTom's are way better and more intuitive. I always found the previous versions of TomTom software easy to use as well.
Traffic options seem better: There are ways to preview the traffic on your entire selected route, as well as other choices - Garmin only shows color-coded traffic on the map (similar to Google Maps) - my thinking is, why would i need that? When I see the traffic when I am close to it, it's sort of too late to do anything about it. Garmin displays ads when you stop to offset cost of this service. I haven't experienced it, but i heard it was annoying as check. You are paying to be spammed -so no thanks. TomTom has the traffic receiver built into the power cable - Garmin has a separate FM antenna that needs to be plugged in.
TomTom 2405 did a better job of recalculating the route if I went off the original plan. Garmin took longer, and kept repeating "recalculating","recalculating","recalculating","recalculating"... Also, I found the TomTom default voice to sound much more natural, where Garmin's was more like a computer-generated voice you hear on the PC when you have the Accessibility support turned on.
Tomtom map screen shows more useful information that Garmins - time to destination, time of arrival, distance to go, current speed and speed limit. Garmmin shows speed and speed limit, and there is another box that only shows one of the things that you need to select: distance to go, time to go, arrival time or direction of travel. It's inconvenient to switch between the choices.
TomTom's proximity point notification functions worked well. In addition to Red-Light and speed cameras, you can turn on notifications for school zones. All of those worked fine. My Garmin had the safety camera notifications turn on, but never actually did anything when I drove by a speed camera.
I found TomTom to be better to be giving turn-by-turn instructions when the turns are closer together. Garmin could be giving you instructions a little to far in advance, which sometimes makes it confusing. TomTom's voice commands were definitely better timed and very accurate.
Here are a couple of things I would improve on TomTom:
Map Quality: It has been said before, and I confirmed it that Garmin's Navteq maps are a little more up-to-date. My test was to punch in an address that my old TomTom One could not locate. The result: The new TomTom still cant find it, but Garmin found it with no issues.
Another thing that has been mentioned before by others is the fact that Garmin allows to select a state and do a street search in "All Cities", while in TomTom you must select a city or Zipcode. If you are not sure, you can be spending a lot of time finding the match, especially if you are in an unfamiliar area (where we really need to be able to rely on the GPS device the most) Granted, in most times you have a complete mailing address of the destination and with my old TomTom it was rarely an issue, but it seems like such an easy thing to implement, I hope TomTom considers it.
TomTom 2405 allows you to enter address by speaking names of the city and street. The issue I found was that it does the search only in the currently selected state, and you cannot switch it with a voice command. I live the Maryland suburb of DC and can routinely drive to two other states. This makes using voice commands to select the destination limited to the same state and not very useful. I imagine people in New York and Philadelphia may experience the same frustration.
Overall, I found it very difficult to select between the two brands - there seem to be pros and cons for both. I am waiting to see the new Garmin nüvi 2360LMT 4.3-Inch Widescreen Bluetooth to Portable GPS Navigator with US Canada Mexico Lifetime Traffic & Map Updates to ship so I could make a fair side by side comparison between the newest devices. I got the TomTom at a great price with a free carry case included, so I am conflicted whether to keep it or to wait to check out the new Garmin. Any advice?
