Club TomTom Blog launched for US

TomTom US has launched their very own blog for the US customer, Club TomTom. The intent of the blog targeted at a couple of things according to Jocelyn Vigreux, President, TomTom Inc. U.S.A.:

1. Providing you, our users, with a place where you can easily find up-to-date and relevant information on our products and services.
2. Enabling you to share with others your suggestions, ideas and TomTom experiences so that new TomTom users can benefit from your expertise!


The launch of the blog coincides with the launch of the first integrated US advertising campaign. The ad campaign includes commercials on several cable channels, including ESPN, Spike TV, and the Discovery channel. If you want to see the new TV spots, go check out ClubTomTom where you can view them and vote on your favorite. While I like "ScottScott" for namesake only, I like the SueSue version best.... but I don't want to bias you, go check out all three.

TomTom has had a bunch of news lately, including a partnership with AOL's MapQuest to re-brand the TomTom GO 300 under the Mapquest PND name (see our article) , as well as selling the TomTom GO line through BestBuy outlets across the US (see article).

And BTW - Thanks TomTom US for citing GPS Lodge on the Club TomTom site as a Point of Interest blog alongside of Gizmodo and Engadget. We're honored.

I cleaned the screen of my Tomtom GO720 with damp cloth and soap and now the screen sensitivity is useless. i have to touch 3 or 4 times to make it work and sometimes nothing happens. Any answer to my problem please.

I recently bought a TomTom One 130S system, and two known addresses I've typed in did not work when I was testing it. I typed in an address of a restaurant, and it said that the street I typed in didn't accept numbers. When I tried to find the place under the "restaurants" icon, it wasn't listed. Very disappointed.

I have a rider for my motorcycle. It is hard wired last trip the battery low icon was on and the unit kept coming on and off. Customer service informed me that the unit was no good and out of warrenty. They donot replace the battery I am out $899.00 in two years. I also have one for my car!. They offered to take $50 or $100 off a new one. BIG of them don't you think?. PIECE OF CRAP I WILL GET A GARMEN.

I bought a tomtom (330xl) yesterday for my wife, she tried to mount on the window and cracked the screen. Best buy said too bad.Tomtom said the same thing,so sad can't help you just buy another one. $250 down the tube and no one will stand behind this product.Stay away from the 330 xl model the mounting for the window mount is poorly designed and an accident waiting to ruin your day.

I thought I might share my concerns about a recently bought Tom Tom XL-S that apears to be malfunctioning and expect to receive some friendly user´s advice.

My GPS only works fine after some time on. At the beginning it goes crazy, switching from the directions screen to the menu; it won´t allow you to enter an address properly, an M, or various M will appear on the screen, withoout allowing you to write properly . It will switch to sound and mute without touching anything, and only after some time running with your car will you be allowed to enter the proper directions ant it will work flawlessly afterwards. If the car is stopped for a couple of hours and the GPS is switched off and then restarted, it will work seamlessly without fault. On the contrary, if the GPS is switched off for the night, you will need to go through the same painful process the morning after to get your GS working properly.
Has anyone experienced the same with a TOM TOM? Any advice?.
Many thanks.

Does anyone know how to pair the verizon motorola q with the one XL?

I have had the Tom Tom 910 for about 8 months and am not at all satisfied with it. It locks up more than my trick knee and is more difficult to understand than my home-owner's insurance policy. Try and get customer support, good luck. Where's my map book and compass?

I just purchased the GO 910 and went to the web site to see which verizon mobile phones could be used for wireless mobile operation.. two LG models were listed VX8100 & VX9800 .. both of which are not current and not available. does anyone know of any current verizon mobiles will work with the GO910

thanks

TomTom wants the new business and offers "givegive" rebates of $100 BUT HAS NO intent to pay or mail them out. They provide a list of the no-buy sites and never close the loop,for they don't give a list of retialers only tell you that who ever you bought the GPS from is not recognized.
They are NOT TRUTHFUL.

Received a TomTom One for Christmas as a gift. Compared to my Garmin 276 C the TomTom is an inferior product. After two weeks I can't figure out how to "stop navigating" and how to establish a waypoint without placing it in a category.
