Most helpful reviews

Witchy, Lewisham Occasional user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
It does what it is supposed to, sometimes hard to work out what input you need. I found it really!! handy when low on petrol and it took me to the nearest petrol station available in an area that i didn't know. I bought it because it was half price and for that i really don't have that much to complain about.
Bad points:
The size is a little big and the suction pad is really stiff to fold back down and usually snaps off {supposed to, but annoying when it does it every time} I use a nav pad to secure it on the dash which i would recommend

Stephen, Portsmouth Occasional user

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
reasonably straightforward to use. In some situations it was good - in navigating cities (looking for a hotel or route out for example).
Good at telling you where you were (road number etc., direction of travel).
Bad points:
We bought this for a Bulgarian holiday. On occasions it sent us on minor badly maintained roads where staying on main roads would have been far quicker. On one occasion the minor road we were directed to had been blocked with gates for years. We lost 20 minutes.
In the end we had to check that the TomTom route was sensible before using it.
When it was most needed it let us down. We were travelling to the airport at four in the morning through a city and its directions became close to random. We had to turn it off.

Good points:
As I got it half price I have good VFM and the size and display is suitable for my needs. Each time I have used it it has coped well with any wrong turns and recovers quickly to direct you. I find it excellent and it relieves my worry in city situations.
Bad points:
Had trouble working out how to attach it

Manufacturer's Description

EasyPort Mount
The TomTom EasyPort mount has a unique, flexible design, allowing the user to fix their TomTom device securely to their desired position on the windscreen, using the strong, mechanical locking system. Once at their destination, the user can then remove it quickly and easily, with one twist, when leaving their vehicle. The clever design allows the driver to fold away the mount neatly onto the TomTom device – and remove the entire unit, without having to worry about stowing the mount separately. Given the small size of the device and mount together, finding an easy and secure storage space in a bag, is no longer a problem.

Loud and clear voice instructions for safer driving
Independent safety research has shown the importance of audible navigation instructions to road safety. While the TomTom XL range has been redesigned, no compromise has been made on audio performance. The TomTom XL Classic includes a much larger, enhanced speaker system, ensuring the spoken instructions are loud and clear at all times against any background noise within a typical in-car environment.

TomTom Map Share
Users of the TomTom XL Classic will benefit from TomTom’s unique Map Share technology, with millions of corrections and improvements uploaded every month by the TomTom online user community. These can include changes in street names, road speed limits, turn restrictions, traffic directions and road blocks, as well as corrections to Points of Interest, such as phone numbers changes. Map Share enables drivers to improve their own maps instantly on their device, as well as receive the corrections from other users via TomTom HOME – free desktop software. TomTom has the world’s largest satellite navigation community with approximately 20 million users, and Map Share means TomTom drivers can always have the most up-to-date maps and inside local knowledge at their fingertips.

Latest map guarantee
TomTom portable navigation devices are installed with the latest maps during production, however, customers can be reassured that if a new map is released during the first 30 days of using their new device, they are entitled to a free download of the latest map, via TomTom HOME.

Safety as a priority
Safety is a key priority in the development of all TomTom products. The TomTom XL Classic comes with comprehensive safety features, so drivers always have direct access to safety and roadside assistance information wherever they go. The extensive ‘Help Me!’ menu includes information such as emergency and breakdown service numbers, directions to the nearest hospital, car maintenance advice and first aid instructions. Advanced safety preferences also allow the user to set their own requirements regarding speed warnings, timed driving breaks and menu accessibility options.

TomTom HOME
As with all TomTom products, the TomTom XL Classic comes with TomTom HOME, TomTom’s free desktop software for PC/Mac – essential for keeping the TomTom device up to date at all times. Through TomTom HOME, customers can easily download new software versions, as well as the latest maps and safety camera database.
