Weight Issue
TomTom need new scales.
They must all weigh roughly the same. which is odd, the 700's drive surely MUST weigh just a little more.
How queer.

TOM TOM GO Weights
Could it be that weight of 700's hard drive is same as weight of 300/500's SD card holder + SD card, (no card/holder in 700) ? Cunning folk, these Dutchmen.

TOM TOM GO Weights
No way. SD cards are wafer thin and the size of a gnat's thumb. Even a small 2.5gb drive is a heavy fat giant in comparison.
The hot weight debate continutes...

I have asked this question before, but to date got nowhere. Where can I buy preloaded s/d maps of france for my Tom Tom GO

Posted by michael crofts on 19/5/2005
Either wait for the new maps (out this summer??) or keep an eye on eBay, where there's currently a batch of german sd maps.No french but that could change.
They may turn up used on Amazon's market place.

tomtom go 700
As the 700 has a hard drive, (so moving parts), is it more likely to fail, is it better to have a sd card

I have got it to alert on route so far! any help gratefully recieved.....also is there a way of downloading info on mobile camera postions? Cheers!!

Speed Cameras - off route?
Of route speed cams...

On the Tom Tom Go menu Click Maintain POI,

Select warn when near POI. Touch the individual POI catagories, set distance (273yards default) DONE

Choose warning sound (test and select) then finally warn if on route tick the box for this option.

TomTom 500 And TomTom 700
Hi guys, serious issue, its really confusing which one to buy between TTG 500 and TTG 700. If money is no issue, advise me please as I am about to make an advance order. Thank you

re: TomTom 500 And TomTom 700
The only big difference is the storage. If money is no issue then get the 700, what have you got to lose? No fiddly SD cards to worry about maps are stored on massive harddrive. Buying the 700 also gets you a remote which costs extra for the 500.

If you don't need the extra storage and don't care about the remote stick to the 500 and save some money. Bust as you say, money is no issue... therefore must be 700 for me.

re: TomTom 500 And TomTom 700
In addition to the previous poster's comments the TTG 700 also has double the internal memory, which can only be a good thing. If money is seriously not an issue I don't know why you just don't buy the better model (700)

Posted by Dave on 20/5/2005
Now I'm worried....The guy who said with a hard drive there is more to go wrong....how reliable is the 700 going to be ??

Posted by phil on 20/5/2005
ffs why would it go wrong. who's to say the SD memory off the 500 won't go wrong?

Posted by alan on 20/5/2005
HAHAHA You're not buying a 700 because it might go wrong. that's got to be the lamest reason not to buy something I've ever heard. It's like not buying a house because the roof might blow off. Get real.
These harddrives are in everything these days, do they go wrong? Are the millions of ipods all broke?
If anything a flimsy SD card is most likely to become error prone. Give me a power full magnet or a sticky fingered child and that'll muck up your 300/500.
