One very important aspect of any NAV system is frequent and accurate map and when necessary software, updates. Without accurate maps or user friendly downloads, a NAV system can become more of a hassle than it is worth. When I purchased the GO2535TM WTE it was advertised to include Free Lifetime Map updates. As it turns out this is a false advertising claim. The WTE edition costs more because you are purchasing installed maps of both the U.S. and Europe. When you go to update the maps however, TomTom only allows you free updates for U.S. maps if you registered your NAV unit from the U.S. or free Euro map updates if you registered your GO2535TM WTE NAV unit in Europe. This is clearly fraud and has been reported to the U.S. Federal Trade Comm. who like most U.S. government entities is impotent and apathetic so nothing was done to TomTom (who is based in Europe but has a U.S. subsidiary), to force TT to comply with their claims of FREE Lifetime Maps.
In order to get any response from the slackers at the FTC or other U.S. government agencies, they need to be bombarded with consumer complaints for cases of product or warranty fraud, etc. As such I noted on the TT forums the problems when other people inquired about the so called free map updates and suggested that all who purchased the WTE report their inability to the FTC (as requested by the FTC personnel in my phone conversation with them), so that the FTC would understand the magnitude of the fraud. As a result of my posting in the TT forum I was banned and as such cannot participate, expose product defects or even read about product defects, updates, etc. This is completely unscrupulous and illegal under whistle blower laws, but I decided to cut TomTom lose as I will not be buying any of their products again due to their unethical behavior and consumer fraud on map updates.
So while the GO2535TM WTE NAV unit itself works well or use to work well until TT decided to change all of their software management programs, I would not recommend any TomTom product to anyone based on TT's failed customer support and complete unscrupulous behavior. To elaborate a bit on the download software, TT had a good program in place when I purchased my NAV system but I only got to use it once for updates before they switched to a new program for downloads. This new program was broken from day 1 and even after I and other people spent hours showing TT the technical issues that needed to be fixed, they were unable or unwilling to actually fix the broken software which prevented downloading map updates without spending hours or days with your NAV unit logged on via the internet. It was and AFAIK still is a complete cluster at TT regarding their software.
It's also worth noting that TT has some paid and unpaid fanbois who occasionally provide help to TT users but mostly they spend time defending the software and other product defects. You won't have any difficulty figuring out who the shills are if you go to the TT forums and start reading. You will also find that any comments that sight product defects, software Bugs, or other TT issues are rapidly deleted or the thread is closed so it disappears as new posts are made. This is more of the unscrupulous activities you can expect if you chose to buy a TomTom product. IMO there is a very clear intent to defraud consumers and not allow potential consumers to know the defects that exist in the TT hardware, software and download programs. The forum censorship is simply unacceptable to me when the posts are valid consumer complaints of documented defects.
So let you conscience be your guild when looking for a NAV system. None of the NAV purveyors seem to be great based on reports from users of other NAV brands/models. I however would never consider buying a TomTom product again after experiencing their unethical behavior firsthand and observing their inability to properly support their NAV systems with fully functioning download programs and software updates - which are critical to the usefulness of the NAV device. TT also has a clause in their warranty which basically allows them to terminate product support whenever they feel like it, so your NAV unit can become obsolete in a year or two when they change directions and come up with the trick-of-the-week NAV system.
TomTom's Biz model has been designed around charging outrageous fees (~$90) for every map update when a complete new NAV system might costs ~$120 with the new hardware. With competition they have had to change their Biz model so they are using other areas to cut costs and consumers are paying dearly for these changes. This includes speed camera updates and real time traffic monitoring which all have annual fees. Only you can decide what these extra services are worth to you. I don't speed and the basic traffic info. worked just fine for me. My suggestion is buyer be very aware of all the consequences of buying any TomTom product because you are unlikely to know the details until after you have spent your money and are stuck dealing with support issues that are never resolved.
To create the POI's, I use Google Maps to find the truck entrance, zoom in real close, right click at the entrance to the driveway and choose the option "What's Here". At that point you will see up in the Google Maps search bar the GPS coordinates for that point on the map. Then I use a free program I downloaded several years ago called PoiEdit (used to be called PoiEdit 2007) to enter those Google Maps coordinates. Although this program doesn't appear to be updated anymore, it still works flawlessly and I use it almost weekly.
Although I have probably bored some to tears about adding your own custom POI's, I just wanted to help someone that already has a general knowledge about adding custom POI's to their GPS unit. I was very hesitant about buying this GPS unit when I was trying to find a new replacement because so many people were saying that you couldn't add your own custom POI's, but lucky for me I went against the grain and wanted to try it for myself. So glad I did!
I have had this GPS unit for almost a year now and have not had any problems with the unit itself, but I have had one complaint about the programing, which I contacted TomTom about. Although TomTom was pretty quick to respond and try to help me with the problem, they never were able to resolve the issue. The problem I have is that once I add an address and choose my routing via waypoints, if I shut the unit off for fifteen minutes or so the unit will erase my route and waypoints. Once I wake up in the morning and get ready to take off to make my pickup or delivery my routing is gone and I have to re-enter my routing again. Although most times it's no big deal because I just click the navigate to recent destination and it's there. But the real annoyance is when I have to follow a certain route because of low bridges, truck restricted routes, etc. and I have to enter up to the maximum allowable three waypoints. Sometimes that can get kind of time consuming and irritating.
Other than that, I don't have any problems. I don't use the traffic portion of it because my understanding is that it is only reporting info from local participating radio stations or something like that and sometimes it's available and sometimes it's not, just depends on where I am at. When it is available, I will use it just for informational purposes, but I wouldn't be heart broken if that option suddenly became unavailable. The voice is pretty loud, but I keep that muted and don't use that option either.
Another big reason I like the "GO Series" of TomTom GPS's is because once you start slowing down, the GPS automatically starts zooming in on your location, which makes upcoming turns and street names easier to see and way safer than having to manually zoom in and out.
If you are a truck driver just remember that this GPS, or any GPS (including truck specific GPS units) you choose, is just a tool and ONLY a tool to help you find your customers and such. There is no excuse whatsoever for you relying on this device entirely to the point that you end up driving into a low bridge, get caught on a truck restricted route, or a weight restricted bridge. I always plan my route according to my company's directions first, then my road atlas, Google Maps, customer directions, and my GPS.
Hope this helps somebody!
