I have a couple of different GPS units - an off-road/hiking model, and a higher-end Garmin for my auto - cost more than twice what this Tom Tom sells for. My expectations for the Ease were not that high - I figured it would be a basic, no-frills unit. In part, it is. It does not have BlueTooth (My Garmin does, but I have never used it) and has a smaller screen and no SD card support. The smaller real-estate means that the informational displays need to be smaller, and less of the surrounding area displays. I expected this to be a headache, but it really was not.
I opened the box in my car, popped out the GPS, suctioned it to the windshield (using a unique twist lock, not the typical lever type), and turned it on. After entering some basic information (home, time, etc.) it was ready to go. It locked on to the satellites really fast - far quicker than my Garmin. I drove around for an hour, hitting my usual stops. The maps are incredibly accurate - the unit defaults to 3D, but switching between 3D and 2D is one touch away. I kept it in 3D.
One point I really, REALLY liked was the accurate street names. For example, I live near 95th Street. Everyone calls it 95th St. My Garmin calls it "Ulysses S. Grant Memorial Highway" - nobody I know calls it that - or even knew it was named that. The Tom Tom calls it 95th St. The Tom Tom also displays the correct street names - AND - the alternate numbers, with the appropriate symbol. So 95th Street displays all three "official" names/numbers. Imagine how much LESS confusing this is driving in an area you are not familiar with. I can't count the times I've been on a highway and wondered "is this 90/94/41/53" because the display on my Garmin shows one thing, and the signs another. Why?Read more ›
**What I like**:
1) Small and compact, and I expect I'll keep it in my purse with me
2) Just a quick glance at the map and I can tell how long until I need to turn, and what direction
3) Clear and concise directions, "turn left, followed by a right turn in one-quarter mile"
4) The look, I like the red with white color
5) The built in mounting device which easily attaches to and detaches from the windshield
6) Map share feature - users being able to submit corrections to TomTom and the option of being able to edit my own map
7) POI's - I like being able to see restaurants and other point of interest locations nearby
8) Picks up satellite signal pretty quickly if my spouse isn't already driving when I turn it on
9) Clear voice and a good volume level, even my 2 year old can hear and understand the turn right and turn left commands from the backseat. "Mommy, she said turn left."
1) I can't see the route that it has planned for me. I can see at tiny map with my start and end point, and a line between, but I can't tell if that has me going on the freeway, what exit it wants me to take, etc. Ideally I would like to see turn by turn directions in text, but since that isn't shown, I expected to be able to zoom in on the map with route information and pan the map to see where it has me going. I just don't like following directions blindly! I'm a plan ahead kind of person, and this seems like a BASIC feature.Read more ›
Beware I have only had it for a day, but here are my observations. It is too new - the TomTom web site doesn't have it in the drop-down menu to get the Users Manual. The box includes a Users Guide not a Users Manual. There are only a few references to it on the web site, well a black one with an available red faceplate.
TomTom Home gave me a lot of problems because of a previous account I had on the site. When I tried to remove the old 700 and select this new one I received an error about an old version of TomTom Home on the new device. I fought that for awhile but finally was able to update and backup.
I have owned many GPSs from handheld to laptop dongles and we currently have 2 other GPSs in the house we use for trips. But this is by far the best one - as should be expected of something this new. As it will be used as a "Personal Navigation Device" for my wife, it fits the bill perfectly.
If something changes as she uses it or something unexpected comes up, I'll repost.
Unfortunately I was more than a little frustrated when I connected it to my mac and received error after error trying to link it to the TomTom Home website for updates/etc.
After installing and reinstalling their software and getting error message after error message I called TomTom Support. Their phone menu does not even indicate the device exists. I was told to check back in two weeks and try then because they do not yet have their system in place to support this product via TomTom Home.
Today I got an automated email from TomTom that essentially said they were closing out my service report (generated while I tried to connect to their site the first day of ownership) because I had not responded to an email that they did not send to me and they considered the problem SOLVED. Wow, great support. I tried again today and I still cannot link my device to their site.
What other manufacturer rolls out a product that touts online support and updates but does not bother to flag the device on the website as not having support available yet? How many other people are going to order this device and get frustrated trying to connect to the internet only to eventually do what I did, call customer support and be told "oh, sorry, that device is new and not yet supported, try again in two weeks". They didn't even offer to call me when the problem was corrected, the onus is on the user.
Poor support, I hope this is not a harbinger of things to come.
For lack of support and lack of a message on their website that might prevent other new customers from spending 40 minutes of their time hopelessly trying to correct this companies mistakes, I give this company an "F" as in FAIL. Terrible product launch.
