|I need help with decision|
Hi! I have recently decided to abandon the paper maps and want to buy an efficient one at the same time not too expensive navigation system. I was looking at TOM TOM 300. Could someone advice on its funtionality i.e how accurate it is etc. Does it detect speed cameras?

|TOMTOM GO - ADVICE NEEDED|
My TomTom Go recently stopped working. It was 6 months old. I took it back to Staples, which is where i bought it from who sent it back to Tomtom. Tomtom then told them to offer me another Tomtom GO as it was not worth repairing that one. However, the one Staples offered me and claimed they only had left was an ex display model as they said this version had been discontinued. What do you think I should do, accept it or ask for a full refund? WHat are my options?

|Maps of Europe|
Can anyone tell me how detailed the Western Europe Maps are please. I'm thinkingof getting TTG 500 and wonder if I need the Western Europe set or the major roads mapping will be good enough to get me to most holiday destinations

|RE : TOMTOM GO - ADVICE NEEDED|
Staples are ripping you off - ask for the new model. If they refuse, get a full refund then buy the latest model yourself - the TTG 300 is cheaper than the original model so you might have some money left over :) My TomTom Go recently stopped working.

|Charging a TomTom Go 300|
Since a TomTom GO doesn't come with an A/C power adapter, is it possible to charge the unit through a USB connection to a PC?

|Speed (safety) cameras|
To activate TTG300 speed safety camera locations do you have to sign up to Tom Tom Plus?? or can you use it without Plus?

|Speed (safety) cameras|
You can use speed cameras on TomTom without signing up for TomTom Plus. We upload them as POIs, been using them on the original TTG for ages and that doesn't support PLUS at all!

Hi all, If you want to get a speed camera data base on your Tom Tom go to pocket gps world on the web. There you can download a free data base for all kinds of sat nav products. I put it on my new go 300 the other day and it works a treat:-)).As for anyone thinking of getting one of the new Tom Tom's. DO IT you will never know how you did without one. Door 2 Door it's that accurate...Mark

I have just pre-ordered a new tom tom 700 from Amazon £ 549.95,( I thought it was worth it to save the missus and me from arguing about directions ! ) Do you guys think it will be sufficient to use on my trip around Italy ? it looks like it has all the Western European street maps but I am a little scheptical as this is my first 'Sat Nav '. I would welcome your comments on functionality, charging, ease of use etc

can anyone tell me how to get and install POI's of the Caravan Club on to a Tomtom to go 500.

Adding POIs is easy. I'm assuming you've got the POI Caravan Club files (if not download it here)
Unzip the POI file, you should get a BMP file (bitmap) and a OV2 file.
Plug your TomTom into a USB port on your PC, find it on MyComputer, it should show up just like an extra drive. double click it and find the Great Britain Map folder.
Drag the files from the zip ( bmp and ov2 files) into the TomTom folder.
Restart the tomtom, it sohuld find them and work.

Barry, You forgot something. You need to go into 'Maintain POI' on the tomtom and enable the new POI category.
