Some customer reviews of TomTom Go 540 Live

Most helpful reviews

David, Newark on Trent Occasional user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Good and accurate picture. Accessories allowed me to set up in car to my requirements. I consider my Sat-nav to be excellent value for money.
Bad points:
Difficulty in adjusting volume [too loud]. I still find it difficult to access the preferences but that is probably because I am not yet fully familiar with the device. I think most of my problems arise because I am not technically minded in modern parlance [at 76 I consider myself to be technically retarded] and above all I find it difficult to understand the modern parlance.

Andrew, Nottingham Occasional user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Generally easy to use. Large screen, very useful when travelling alone.
Bad points:
Tends to switch off for no reason. Screen can flip to night view when in full daylight - obviously you can't amend whilst driving making viewing difficult!
