Hi guys, anyone here has Tom Tom GO? 500 or 600?

I love TomTom unit but this GO series is C.R.A.P.! Occasionally the map took ages to load and sometimes I have to keep turning it on/off before it works.

Is this a known issue with GO series? I have updated the software etc.

I have the 600 and generally happy with it, I've found it tons more reliable than the old "GO LIVE" series. Only thing I wish it had was bluetooth handsfree for my mobile but other than that its earned its keep.

Yea, have to agree. We've got a GO and, while it's not the best SatNav in the world, it's reliable.

I have an old go 720.

Works reliably, and has great bluetooth handsfree(while on power, not enough juice on battery).

Can require a reset when using additional software such as tomplayer, but is stable with the factory software.

The new GO series is completely different (software wise) from the older generation.

I have to say that it functions well at first until the last 2-3 weeks. Starting up can be extremely slow.
