I want some reviews, this live services intrigues me

How much a month are these Live services going to cost after the three-month free trial?

I bought this in a previous woot last October. I was unable to load any map updates on it using the TomTom software. I tried 3 times. That being said it did work decently and can be customized to your liking. I have since sold it in favor of a Droid. Buy with caution.

You would definitely be paying for the name… I would recommend getting another brand for closer to the $60-$80 range or, better yet, wait for one to come in a random bag.

ONLY 3 MONTHS of service included.

$119 at amazon new
$99 for refurbished

Is this the same one that’s $120 on amazon?

9.95 I believe. It should show up on the Tomtom page hyperlinked from our specs

According to the Tom Tom LIVE website, renewal for the LIVE portion is $9.95 a month.

Good reviews on Alatest for this one.

Just thought I’d chip in about map upgrades!
You will probably not get any for free!

And now the long story:

I bought two refurb TomToms a bit over a year ago. First one was great, and even though after I plugged it into PC, it said the map guarantee has expired (that’s a TomTom way to guarantee that when you bought a new unit, you get the latest map version - they give you free upgrades for a month), I called TomTom, e-mailed them a receipt, and they gave me spanking new maps…

Loved the unit (it was TomTom GO 920) so bought another one for second car a few months later. Bummer! No map guarantee for refurb units anymore!!! They informed me that it’s a new policy they just implemented!

Duh…

So to make long story short: if yours turns out to be with 1.5 year old maps - there’s no free upgrade. You’d have to pony up another $80 - 100 or so for the map, if you want the new one…

All that said - love my TomTom’s. Both of them. Much better than my previous Magellan, and seems more flexible than Garmin too, although I never actually owned one, so can’t testify under oath for that comparison!

No, not the same NO LIVE.

$180

That one doesn’t come with the Live service.

Here is the corrent one:

It’s $180 new, with 3 months of Live services.

No, the one at Amazon does not have the live service.

It is this one http://www.amazon.com/TomTom-4-3-Inch-Widescreen-Connected-Navigator/dp/B002OL2NTE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1267769308&sr=1-1

I stand corrected. I have been shopping for a full featured GPS and waiting for the right price point to pull the trigger.

I don’t think this one is enough of a deal to entice me.

I’d like bluetooth, FM transmitter (so it’ll broadcast thru your stereo) and free lifetime traffic. Voice recognition would be a nifty feature.

The live service is $9.95/mo.

Does it have an internal battery? (If so how long does it last between charges?)

$180 delivered new from Amazon 6 positive ratings and one negative.

can you change the way the voice sounds on this?
