For those that purchased and/or used one of these, was it any good?
Would you buy again? Or would you change to something else?
Not got this particular model, but reviews of it suggest the same problem I have with my two Garmins - appalling software.

No personal knowledge of TomTom, but they must surely be better than Garmin to be so successful. I have a Nuvi 310D (2006) and a Nuvi 2595LMT (2012). The older one still works fine but it has no free updates, and the newer one doesn't like getting hot and refuses to switch on if it's a warm day (odd that).

The older one has poorish software but in 6 years you'd expect that to have improved - but it hasn't. It's actually worse than the older model, and that seems standard with Garmin. I know of no other device with such an unintuitive operating system - the wife can't use it at all, and I have to work at it. It's completely illogical, makes no sense at all, and it's a bit like comparing Windows 3.1 with Windows 10. ;)

Free Lifetime maps and traffic = Lifetime of the device, which in my experience of Garmin is a couple of years.
​​​I've had mine for 7 years.
I've had one for 8 years, battery has been dead for at least the last 4 years, so only works plugged in though.

Is this WinCE based or Android?
Do you know if it's possible to install custom mapping software like iGo Primo on it? My F&H Ebuyer/Navigo one from a few years back won't get signal anymore.
Funny enough I have one of these as well. I had TomTom installed on it work fine then the GPS got screwed up somehow. The arrow would be in a field whilst driving!!!!

I don't know about anyone else but I'm fed up with Amazon and what they've done with their "Today's Deals" section. It seems to consist only of items which state "Please note that I have received this item at either a discount or for free in exchange for an honest review".
For some reason I don't want to buy anything someone has received either free or for a cheaper price. And despite what they say I'm sure their reviews aren't totally unbiased.
And when you see all 5 star reviews that say something similar then check there review status and find its there first review.
That's not strictly true or accurate, it also has a review from a "verified customer" of ..... 1 star - utter rubbish!

* Please note I have not been paid or given discount for this post

I get that - but my point was that most of the items on the "Today's Deals" page are items which have been given out for free or more cheaply. The reviews for those items are made up of some verified customers and some targeted reviewers.

I just don't like it - maybe it's just me :-)

"I've sold my soul to Amazon in order to get loads of free tat that I can offload on unsuspecting victims on Ebay. I'll say I like poo if it means I'll get to lick it for free. Bribing me will get you a five star review."
Got a similar item off Ebay a couple of years ago. Never had a problem, got a link in the box for map updates and it takes normal data for POI/speed cams etc. Mine has a FM transmitter which pretty good, so music from the SD card can be used. For the price it's pretty good.
let's face it, if amazon was a shop, trading standards would have a field day.

You cant see much on the screen when in the car as the resolution/backlight is rubbish, the thing keeps freezing and as for lifetime updates forget it, its a cheap Chinese copy of a big brand (G***in) but no updates are available as the sat nav software is pirated. Spend more and get a decent one you won't regret missing this one.
Load of crap, cheap tablet with a very poor GPS, also very slow to use. I tried telling my m8 not to buy one but he didn't listen but wishes he had.
Noza Tec notoriously bad at after sales service, updates very hard to acquire and install for most buyers I've spoken to.

Check out the map update service before committing to buying one
these aren't great, cheap build and poor screen resolution/viewing angles, and the sat nav is messed up

New equivalent model is the 5200:

RRP is £320 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It is indeed a discontinued model - Argos confirmed that to me. Shame the new models probably won't be in the cashback promo that now running until October 4th.
I think all the retailers are getting new stock as I was looking at this a couple of days ago and everyone but Halfords was out of stock and Amazon had Warehouse deals only (not eligible for cashback).

I phoned Tom Tom to check on the cashback deal as Amazon say it expires in October yet the Tom Tom terms say it expired on August 24th 2016. Apparently all the retailers listed have increased the time frame of the cashback until October and Halfords will restart the cashback on 4th September which led me to believe stock was low everywhere and those with stock were putting the price back up!
Seems OOS on Argos including in store ?

nearest store to me with it in stock is Inverness. I live near Newcastle :(
I was the same, However upon some searching it appears they have exactly the same model available as ex display although listed at £84?
I did mail them asking why i can get an ex display as plenty stock everywhere but why is it dearer ? The guy just disconnected the live chat and i was unable to re-connect so have mailed them asking the same question.
Appears it might be a mistake on their website but if they had any honour about the company they would offer the ex display at the listed price of £59.50.

I bought one of these in the Prime Day sale. It was a fair bit cheaper than the current price so if you are prepared to wait you might do better on Black Friday. Still a decent price though and the one I bought was excellent quality. No concerns about the build at all. Gig bag was a bit rubbish though.
​But there is no guarantee at all that this will be featured in their next Black Friday sale is there? So how much did you pay?

£335.83 and no guarantee of course, but you can guarantee that there will be some Gibsons at silly prices. There have been in all the recent sales. Some silly prices outside the sales if you are patient and check regularly.


​I have a Gibson Les Paul Standard bought when I was young(er) and stupid(er). It's bizarre to say it, but I like everything about it (the weight, the build, the feel - even the smell! ) except the sound. The tone is just too chunky and fat, to get the singing yowling heavy blues tone I like. Great shame Gibson don't do an SG with P90s as I'd like to pick one of those up in the silly sales you talk about.


​ In fact this is where I got it, looks like they're re still trying to sell it.:-D

Obviously attempting to make a phone a sat nav is crap as a concept from the off, but also I couldn't have anything less than a 5" sat nav. A 6" sat nav (sorry to close all your "ooh matron" loopholes here) is just TOO big - a 5" sat nav is the perfect size. Data use? No thanks - no need.
You can get downloadable maps on at least some phones which includes navigation. 5" phones are also very common.
Why is a phone sat nav a "crap concept"?

I'm sure you can. You also have the added fun of having to go out and buy some silly attachment cradle...thing...which will not come with your phone, so you can mount it to a dashboard somewhere. Long term you won't be enjoying constantly running out of battery power trying to use a phone for it, so you'll then also have to go and buy a car charger for it (believe most phones don't actually come with these). Both of these things oh - they're straight out the box when you buy a sat nav! How handy. Also add in the fun of having to go in, every time you need to do a long journey : turn off this notification, turn off that notification, turn off just about everything else if you want to stand a hope in hell of a straightforward uninterrupted journey guide. Add to this the fact that no phone I know of has a matt screen finish. All sorts of shiny sun glare awaits using a phone screen! But no...no it'll do cos...a phone can just be crowbarred into anything!
Righto.


​£70 to save you buying what is at worst a £15 mount and charger only to end up with an inferior product? What phone have you got that has notifications that don't pop away in an instant? And sun glare from the screen.....not in 14 years of sat-nav use glossy screen or otherwise. ;)

Come on don't leave us hanging , what's the car like ? ☺
I've just gone over 1000 miles (oops) so can give a bit of insight as to what the car's like.
This is coming from a 2.0 Focus with around the same power and soft suspension, but with a lot more creature comforts (leather/climate/cruise etc and a lot of weight). I'm quite a keen driver, so was looking for a car which would give me a decent level of feedback and most importantly is fun to drive. So far it's pretty much all positive and the car is incredibly fun to drive. Details:
The fiesta's pros:
So quiet, inside the car when driving normally you can barely hear it even with music completely off.
Sounds great, when you push the pedal to the floor it lets out a deep rasp sort of like an inline 6 and sounds much better than it really should (I know it has some symposer stuff going on, but who cares!)
Looks brilliant, I'm not all that bothered about how a car looks personally, but had quite a few people mentioning how good it looks, compared to 0 comments on my previous Focus. The alloys in particular look so much better in the rock finish than the silver that the Zetec S used to come with.
Handling: I could probably write an essay on this alone. Some people probably won't care about this at all, but to me it was one of the key reasons for picking it over some of the other cars. It obviously takes some time to adjust to a new car, and when it's new you can't really push it too much as it's still being broken in and you don't really know where the limits are. However, I've had some time to get to know it and the way it attacks corners and puts a smile on your face puts a lot of more expensive cars to shame. First thing to note is that there is certainly a lot more front end grip than rear end. Turn in is super sharp and the small wheel and relatively low ratio means you can get it turned in exactly where you want it. Second thing to note is that it's seemingly impossible to get the thing to understeer. It's super adjustable on the limit which is good fun, and has a liking for lift off oversteer when pushed, similar to the ST. It also stays so flat in the turn that it gives you good confidence and feel for what's going on. Good stuff. If you're just pootling along though, there is ample grip no matter what speed you're doing, so don't think it'll be drifting everywhere :D
MPGzzz: Took a while to learn how to use the engine properly to get good economy, but once you do (aka don't use too much boost) you can get good results, 50+ is quite easy and I've even seen a 60.2 for one long A/B road trip
Power: It is quick, but only relative to the engine size. I've found that it's usually best to keep it in third from 2.5k rpm if you want to push on as it is the first gear where you get full boost (1st and 2nd are limited to save the gearbox). It is so torquey from above 2k rpm that there really isn't any need to change down at all, and motorway overtakes are effortless.
Interior: Seats are superbly supportive, and also very comfortable once set up correctly. The new matt grey interior trim looks much nicer than the old glossy stuff and the black headliner makes it feel a lot more upmarket than it is. The new steering wheel looks very similar to the ST's (might even be the same, not sure) and is very soft and well padded, pedals are lovely too.
Hill Hold Assist: Surprised by how well it works in the fiesta, was expecting a grabby useless piece of tech, but it works brilliantly. Only use the handbrake when parking now, never when driving (even on hills!).
Cons:
Ride comfort: At low speeds it can be a bit jittery. By no means is it similar to an ST as they're very stiff, but for some it could be a problem - best bet is to test drive it. Once above 30mph though the damping and spring rate work very well and it's then very composed.
Power: It can be a bit of a laggy thing. Coming from a N/A lump I'm finding myself missing the instant throttle response that it gave, especially after gear changes where the Ecoboost is almost left standing at times. Does it feel like it has 140bhp? Yes as long as you're in 3rd, 4th or 5th and above 2k rpm, then it in fact feels like it has probably around 155bhp. Any other time and it can feel a bit lacking.
Interior: The infotainment, well... Also you can't have the vents on your face and the windscreen at the same time which seems daft to me. Sat nav works well enough, but won't win any awards.
Gearbox: It comes from a period before the Ecoboost was created and wasn't designed with it's torque in mind. Ideally Ford would've designed a new box for the Ecoboost to remove all of these problems. 1st and 2nd are torque limited and make it feel underwhelming (hence the poor 9s 0-60 relative to weight and bhp); reverse can be an absolute pig to get into and have found myself embarrassed by the loud crunching twice in a week.
I'm sure there's lots more, but it's late and I can't think of anything right now. Any other questions, feel free to ask and I'll do my best to answer. I might throw a pic up later in the week, but to be fair everyone knows what it looks like (I hope).

Great post, thanks for taking the time to share your views.

Tomtom 20/25 are worst Sat Nav's ever.....takes ages to get a satellite lock and it's 50/50 if you do the online firmware update....if it fails during update it's gets into an unrecoverable boot loop.
No problems for me in over 10 years of use and many updates spanning across different models

Same here ..use Tomtom all the time....Except with this cheap Tomtom version 20 & 25...they got it wrong.

This offer has obviously been extended - can this thread be unexpired?
Still in stock, why is this expired?
To hard reset a Tomtom stuck in a loop keep the on/off button pressed down until it switches itself off and back on again (takes a few minutes but dont let button go when it seems to be "dead").

now go5100 cheaper from Argos http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/4293466.htm minus TT cashback and 10 argos gift card = 145
major difference between the 510 and 5100 is that the 510 links to your phone and uses your data for traffic etc

the 5100 comes with its own sim with data and roaming included for the life of the device

this makes this a good deal in my opinion cheapest I've seen they also have the 6100 at £189 after cash back
again the cheapest I've seen
I ordered 5100 hope I won't regret, now to find matte screen film..

I ordered from a local dealer when this was first posted. I got an update today, car has been built and is waiting to be shipped - should be ready for pickup mid October.
Freedom have failed to actually quote me properly. They took daaays to reply and when they did it wasnt on the criteria i asked for. emailed them to raise that... no reply for a week. emailed again couple days ago...

will stick to my local dealer i think.
Anyone order from freedom and get a build date? They just tell me a different story every time i ask, my current lease is up in a month and i ordered with plenty of time for the original stated 12 weeks months ago, gonna be without a car now by the looks of it.

Got an order number from them but doesn't work on the VW order tracker, not sure if that covers seats aswell?
Build week 39 but unconfirmed
Dsg 2400 then 23x160 for 5000 p.a
180 deposit already paid.
With centralvehicleuk or something like that.

Have not received contract / paperwork so think it's possible to negotiate?

Missed the actual deal. Considering the current. Speaking to local dealership. hmm.

To be fair, whilst the 5k pa deals aren't around anymore (now 6k pa), the deal is still around. You can get a 5dr with 10k pa for around £6000 over a 2 year term - which is still a great deal for a £30k+ car.

Cheers 40% off plus £8 for live services and not even new to site happy days!!
Not for Mazda TomTom. Seems "40% off all live services" isn't really "all".
Cheers for that. I normally only use waze as a second line option and might have already left so can't really operate or concentrate on the clunky interface.

I use waze, just as good and its free.
​I've tried Waze and it's not for me as it's quite cluttered.
I prefer Google Maps, but each to their own.
Ditto!
As far as I know, Waze is owned by google and some data on traffic (accidents/roadworks) on Gmaps is pulled in from waze. Sometimes I feel google maps could give a bit more info or is a little wrong, so I try waze, but instantly remember the 73 pages of mobile social local (the world's first truly MoSoLo logistics service to change the world) services I have to navigate through and the clunky interface I just can't get on with. not sure if it's really due an update or just keeping that because it's popular and i'm missing a trick??

I find Waze info (traffic speed, hazards and accident spots) is more up to date than on Google, which sometimes not always seems to lag behind quite a bit, which is why I often check local traffic on Waze before setting out, the Google info is sometimes anything up to about half an hour out of date even though I use TomTom Go on Android for routing, which only shows the more significant delays, and it doesn't overemphasise bottlenecks.

The deal was on when I checked on Sunday night. The closest one was Blackburn for myself and there was apparently one display model left for £50.00. I reserved it for collection, only to realise that there was a glitch in the system and 6 orders were placed for this one display model. They ended up giving me a TomTom Go 51 instead, brand new and sealed for the same price!! So I was quite happy, top customer service.

How do you get the 3 months strava live free, I bought one when the deal was on but never got the free stave live as I should of?
You do it through the Garmin connect website, register on there and there is a link to activate the 3 months trial
I don't see it as inefficient to use two different devices, quite the opposite - I'd rather two devices optimised for their purpose than one device that's a compromise for both. What I want from a phone and a cycle computer are almost the complete opposites of each other, I like my phone for its huge, high resolution screen and sensitive touch screen but even if its batterylife was better and it was more durable I still wouldn't want that on my bike. I like the Garmin because it's small and simple plus it does everything I need when cycling generally better than the phone does, I think Garmin took a mis-step with the Edge 1000 (if I was doing touring or something and needed maps I'd probably mount a smartphone) but the Edge 25 and 520 seem a good balance of features and size. I'm sure smartphones have eaten into some of the Garmin market but there's very few people I go cycling with that don't have a recent Garmin or Wahoo device.

That said I can see why people use their phone for the same purpose and don't disagree with that, more just that I think there's good reason to use a cycle computer as well.

what ever fancy stuff this can do... surely they could release the functions as an app for a cheapo smartphone?
I don't get spending £150 on this device when its all software nowadays?

Its a good question, but the GPS on even good smart phones is nowhere near as good as this. Plus as others have said live segments. You can also let others track where you are. Nothing that can be sorted in future apps and phones but they are not there yet.

If you're only using the device to track a route then a phone can be suitable although even then I'd prefer not to as it drains the battery quicker and if the phone dies when you need it in the middle of nowhere, that could be a real problem.
I prefer to have the cycle computer bar mounted so I can see the data from it as I go along and wouldn't use a smartphone for this, it's too large, too fragile and it uses a capacitative touch screen which doesn't work well when wet or with gloves on. Furthermore in a crash, if the Garmin failed entirely I wouldn't be too fussed about but smashing up the phone when I really need it is a risk I wouldn't take. The 520 on the other hand is small, durable and easily usable in the wet and with gloves on plus it does all I need including some additional features like working with a rear radar system which the phone cannot.
John

That said, and I do agree with those reasons (they're largely why I got an Edge 1000), I do think that for most people who are fair weather riders and have phone insurance that they could get away quite happily with using their phone, Strava app and a Quad Lock to mount it.

Also means less weight on the bike, which starts to make using the phone instead of a dedicated unit appealing to weight weenies. We go to great lengths to drop a few grams here and there after all.

I spent around £350 at the end of May just to drop around 60 grams (new crank and derailleur). The old ones were only two months old, almost perfect condition. Just losing weight really where I can.

It's simply poor use of technology to be taking two units. Inefficient and wasteful. It's human nature to simplify and improve, which is why I don't see Garmin units lasting in the medium term. Garmin will end up being known for sensors and visual accessories (like the new Varia vision stuff) when it comes to cycling.

We're not quite there yet. Battery life, waterproofing. Two big ones, but solvable. The one that I scratch my head over is the capacitive screen. That's a step back for mobiles in terms of the daily user, so you've got a real problem there in making a phone bike friendly out of the box...

Time will tell, there are clever people in tech, they just need the mandate and it'll get done.

Tom tom won't be around at the going rate. I remember thinking about paying £600 for a car sat nav, now look at the cost. I just use a old smartphone but for those who want a dedicated sat nav you can't go wrong even if you have to pay for extras like safety camera. Margins must be tight.

I wouldn't mind using my phone if I didn't use all my data by the third trip!! ;S unlimited date on my phone would cost me quite a bit..probably more expensive than buyin a average sat nav!

Car sat nav is not the best choice. It cost £700 extra if buying new car,but worst of all- to update maps on it cost a fortune; £110 at least for one update. Thats why I don't use my cars satnav.

Garmin are extremely difficult to operate. Took me about 10 minutes of messing about just to get it to enter a post code and start navigating. Highly complex and unintuitive. Stick to Tomtom.
Rubbish. I had a Tomtom for years and had to wait for what seemed like whole minutes between entering each letter, it had such an enormous lag. And literally minutes for it to locate a satellite. Just bought a Garmin 58 (granted, newer technology), it works almost exactly like the Tomtom, just miles faster in all regards, and has a far more precise indication of where one is located.


Well I was referring to latest versions of TomTom and Garmin, not old tech. Our new VW came with the latest Garmin and it's useless.

You could have got it £60 cheaper!
Where from? :)
By not speeding.
Still trying to figure out how I managed it, it was my local fixed speed camera. :(
Er, no, it's your right foot....

Why would you buy this over 5" screen Lumia with Here Maps?
Serious question.

battery drain, and here maps is soon to be no longer getting updated.
Why would you buy this over 5" screen Lumia with Here Maps?

Serious question.
How does this compare to google maps, which has lifetime updates and I can use for free?
Never used a standalone satnav. Surprised no-one mentioned Sygic app. I have tried all free and paid sat nav apps and Sygic wins hands down all day. Google maps is getting better, especially now with off-line navigation however it still can't touch Sygic which uses Tom Tom maps. I think it's the cheapest access to Tom Tom you can get, £16.50 for Europe with free lifetime updates and free heads up display (directions on windscreen at night). Only problem I've found with Sygic is the inability to distinguish minor roads, it has taken me up a few dirt tracks, though that is probably true of all satnavs.
A satnav device without an Internet connection is useless these days. If you have a smart phone, install Tom Tom Go and buy three years subscription. It does not even consume much data for traffic updates. You get the best of both worlds.

This is the worst Tomtom ever. Don't ever update it online as it screws it up and ends up in an unrecoverable boot loop.


I completely agree, got so wound up with it last week that I took it out into the garden and put a garden fork through it. It was very satisfying!

Why are people still buying standalone satnavs? A used tablet is both faster and futureproofed. Google maps, waze, etc etc, so many options.

Sometimes its better to have a dedicated device, my wife hates using the phone and prefers the Garmin we have, I prefer my android and google maps, each to their own.

I anticipated this very question - see the 1st reply on this thread...

Because if you drive a lot like I do then you dont want to be sat there waiting for a signal on your phone which has happened in numerous areas. I also have Waze on Android and Windows phone hanging or messing about. Its also not quite as clear as a dedicated Nav. Whereas a good old fashioned Tomtom has been ultra reliable.

Don't need a TomTom anymore. Android phone with windscreen clip + Google Maps. Free if you already have a phone, clip is cheap, includes live traffic, also gives you better routes should traffic build up or clear in another area. Always more up to date as well.

yes, that one at Amazon is indeed only UK & Ireland maps, however significantly this is Full European map and updates as well as has speed camera updates :)
Looking at the reviews on Amazon, a fair number are pretty negative. I'm looking at replacing an ageing TT one which is showing signs of failure. Its more than seven years old and has been very satisfactory, however, seeing some of the reviews for more recent TT's I am now thinking of a Garmin.
Any Views.

Wow this us cold, my Tom Tom is about 5 years old and never been updated, thinking of getting a new Tomtom for the lifetime map updates.

Indeed, i have now noticed that almost all TomTom deals are cold, i guess because most cars now have in build satellite navigators.

Here maps has a full off-line mode and it's free too. It's so good that Audi, BMW and Mercedes just clubbed together and bought it from Nokia.

I found Here maps gave some strange routing choices, as in not the quickest, fastest or shortest route. Use google all the time now and it's very good and accurate times and will give option for quicker route whilst driving, BUT you do need data signal for this

buy copilot or tomtom for your android or ios smartphone, much better idea
No need....Google maps does a very good job & it's free
I use google maps as my primary navigation tool after buying copilot and realising its live traffic and arrival time prediction was awful (same goes for tomtom), however its always nice to have when you are in the back of beyond with no signal and need to find your way somewhere! for £20, copilot really can get you out of a jam when google maps falls on its face.
Google maps now allows you to download the maps for your route so when you lose mobile signal you can still use Google maps
cant always prepare though.

You could download the whole UK maps if you really wanted to ;-)
good luck with that, you can only select sections

This one is huge!! And wobbles like a jelly when driving...Dash cam is more gadget and to use it must be fitted in the middle of the screen and pointed accurately. Ant it is too big to sit in the middle of windscreen... Like Garmin and use my Nuvi 3598LMT-D daily, but nuviCam not worth attention .

Rubbish. I have used mine for months and it doesn't wobble and it doesn't have to be fitted in the middle of the windscreen and it works great
