Good TomTom Customer Service by 'Nel'[_2_]
I've heard a lot over the last few years about appalling service from TomTom, so I thought I'd pass this on to balance things up. Bought a TomTom Go 730 at the begining of this month for what I felt was a very reasonable price of 150. It was the last one in the store, and as is often the case with the last one, it had been opened previously. Everything was there and it didn't appear to...

Anyone seen this fault?? (TomTom Go 730) by 'Nel'[_2_]
On my down to Northampton the other day, I'd only got as far as the A19 flyover at Teesside when my TomTom started going loopy. It kept going to the 'Get Help' menu, despite me frantically hitting the 'back' button to get back to the map. At first I thought it might have been overheating as the sun was low and shining directly onto the unit. So I took it off the mount and lay it on the...

TomTom 5 & Orange m5000 by .
Hi I currently use tomtom 5 on an MDA compact with a fortuna clip on bluetooth GPS. all runs fine & dandy and has done all along. My brother in law has got himself an Orange m5000 and wants me to sort out the GPS side of the device. I intend to use a fortuna slim (due to the replaceable battery, mainly) and tomtom 5 does anyone have any adverse information regarding this combo

tomtom5 medion problems by [email protected]
The Same issue I was facing and used the winfast navigator as a workaround. Now the Issue once you disconnect the GPS it reverts back to orignal setting so every time I want to use TomTom I have to run the winfast first and make the required changes kill the winfast and then use the TomTom. its a bit of pain if you are stoping at number of places and turning off your car. Any permanent fix to...

I do have a signal as it directs me fine but the signal bars at the bottom right of the tomtom5 screen show no signal! Any ideas why this may be and is there a fix? Reason being is ai have a chance to borrow a small externall aerial for it and want to...
