functional but leaves some to be desired
Posted by: lonewaya from: on
I have always trusted tom tom for my gps needs. They have alway been acurate on mavigating me to locations, and simple and straight forward to use. So when it came time that I needed another gps naturally I went looking for a tom tom. This time I decided to get a bigger screen so I could make out information quicker when glancing at the unit. In terns of screen size if you want big this unit has it covered. However this unit went away from the hallmarks of what I loved about tom tom. The accuracy is noticably off, my gps will report me at my destination a mile before I reach my actuall destination. Now no gps is ever spot on but a mile is a very big devation. Also this unit is not as sleek and simple to use. It takes a few minutes of exploring through all the menus and sub menus to find the basic functions you want. I also dont like how it needs to connect to your phone via bluetooth in order to get traffic updates, and it will also download any updates ot needs through your phones connection so this can and will burn up your data fast. The second problem to this is unless you have a advance phone being connected to your gps means your phone cant connect to your cars built in bluetooth or bluetooth headset. All of these to me where frustrating and seemed like an attempt to build a over fancy system while hurting basic function.

Will Never Buy a Tom Tom Again
Posted by: Baron from: Lusby, MD on
I bought the Tom Tom 60S today. I needed a GPS to get to an important meeting. The other GPS unit I own was with my wife out of town. I was on a very tight schedule and bought the 60S. It took me over 45 minutes to get it to accept an address. It could not find the address I needed to go to and I had to use Google Maps to find a nearby address that it would accept.. The GPS (Magellan) my wife has with her finds this address in less than 30 seconds. The menus are so user UN-friendly that I missed my meeting. Since I was already late and so mad I wanted to throw the unit against a wall I returned the unit to the store, got a refund, went back to the GPS section and looked at a Garmin. The Garmin, even with bad satellite links found the address in less than 15 seconds and was $20 less expensive. The Tom Tom came with no written instructions and the on screen help was nearly useless.
If I can't figure out how to input an address and have the unit find that address within minutes the unit is useless to me.

No no no,

After using tomtom for almost 5 years, I can really say that this one is the worse Tomtom ever.
So buyers, get ready to not listen to music from phone, you either listen to music from your car stereo connected to your phone Bluetooth or you know the traffic.
Meanwhile if you forget your phone at home, you are stuck in Los Angeles traffic for hours.
I don't think that's is a good idea to call it free traffic update and in fact it is not. So you will use your phone data to get traffic.
Very very bad device, I already returned it back from day ONE.
Unfortunately, my wife is used to Tomtom, I got to teach her garmin now and go on.
Now I know why most of the this GO 60s are open box.
I really wanted a tomtom like the one I had but with a larger screen. Free traffic and free map updates.

Step into 80s
Posted by: Trust from: on
With go60 looks like tomtom stepped back into past! Worst navigator ever! Looks like they loaded mobile soft into navigator and want to pile up some quick money! I own few older tomtoms, via models, so this is not near as good! I only had this go 60 for two days and back to store it went! The bad stuff: 1 very small buttons! 2 very small dot to bring menu , touching anywhere on screen not bringing menu. 3 no option to avoid particular streets or highways from planned route, no way to modify route chosen by go60. 4 you need to use ur phone to load traffic, ridiculous, my phone has gps in it and if I need to use my phone i dont need navigator from tomtom! 5 has no all the streets, some smaller streets are not in there while via older models do have all atreets. 6 most annoing is address search, where u need to type and spell entire address ans street and city and state in order for this to find it, try typing each address on those small buttons while driving u will see how announg! Older tomtom models give u options, u type first few letters of city or street and it pops up suggestions while this new go60 asks u to type full address ,, so 18 th century,! So now im shopping to buy used via 1605 tm since tomtom not making them anymore! I rather buy used 1605 than be with this go60! Stay away!

No Saving Graces
Posted by: Austinite from: on
if you want good display in daylight, easy programming, Internet-free, shows POI's enroute, fast map updates, reliability, good customer phone service - this is not the GPS for you. I have always used Tom Tom GPS products and cannot believe they would produce such a lemon.
The screen is unreadable in daylight at 100% brightness. To send directions to the GPS unit you need a smart phone with data roaming enabled. Then why do I need a GPS? I can use Google maps for free. Most of the times the Bluetooth connection fails and destination doesn't transfer to the GPS unit. Even though it says connection is good. The call center makes sympathetic sounding noises and says that here is a software problem. Most times I give up and drive off without it. My old Tom Tom GPS is much more reliable than this and has more software functions, for half the price. I never usually write reviews but this has really been the worst purchase a have ever made. TOmTom, what were you thinking of?

TomTom 60S GPS
Posted by: SFC76 from: on
I needed a dedicated GPS because of my job being in public service, so I purchased a TomTom.
The Pro's - I loved the interface, map software was excellent; extremely easy to use and navigate. I read reviews of the screen not being responsive, It worked great for me.
The Con's - everything was great until I tried to update and register the GPS. First I downloaded TomTom myDrive Connect, easy to navigate, and user friendly. I established an account, it took nearly 4 hours to link my device to the account after a couple of hours trouble shooting to get MyDrive Connect to recognize the GPS device. Halfway through the update, you get a message that says "update interrupted." Then the device has no maps because the loaded maps have been removed during the update. After referencing support and other reviews I gave up 6 hours later.
I returned the first unit, and had an identical experience with the second. I believe the problem is the software, not the device.
What good is lifetime map updates if you can't download any maps. So if you don't plan on registering or updating your GPS, you will like this product. But with today's computer technology, this should not be an issue. Also, you can only link one device to an account, so if you have 2 devices, you have to have 2 different accounts.
The achilles heal of TomTom is their software and ability to update their devices over the internet for end users.
Now I own a Garmin NUVI 2689 and I couldn't be happier. Not one problem, although I prefer TomTom's maps better.
TomTom expresses concern on Best Buy reviews, but its a different experience when you communicate with customer support when you are troubleshooting.
I gave it 2 stars because I really liked the device short of the software.

Excellent hardware but poor software
Posted by: Clifftravels from: Riverside, CA on
TomTom is excellent, and has provided outstanding service for me in multiple countries over many years. The large 6" screen allows me to see the turns without taking my eyes off the road. But the newly revised software load is appalling. Please, please withdraw it and replace it with the older version. The rework from the VIA 1620 to the Go 60 has provided some odd characteristics akin to the kind we would only expect from Windows 8. The new pastel colors show up badly in daylight. Give me back the older menus - these are not well reworked. I also prefer to track distance to destination - please revert to the menus around the bottom and edges. Give me back "Previous destinations" that I can read easily. Give me back access to "voices" like Jane - she is deleted now because the US uses "feet", not "yards". This new junk version can be readily replaced with software. Please do! The hardware is great. This is no place for a dyslectic, color-blind, ex-microsoft programmer who refuses to get his new design reviewed before a major release. Very sad!

Don't buy this item.
Posted by: CruisinDave from: on
TomTom has been my go to GPS but not anymore. If I could give it a negative, I would. After the latest software update, it left the volume at a whisper and we were unable to hear any instruction. The only thing the customer service suggested was to check back in a couple weeks for an update. Not good. We were driving to Florida and needed a gps. Get a Garmin. They are better.
