East of use, cost of buying
Yearly fee for HD Live

I have had a Tom Tom Go 820 Live for about a month now. I do a lot of driving mainly on main or artrial roads. The unit clearly shows the speed you are driving and the speed limit in the area which is great in Sydney where the speed limits change so rapidly. It points our red light and traffic cameras very clearly with plenty of time to stop. I have not had a problem with finding a street at all. I find it a great user friendly unit. I do wish something went of when I was doing over the speed limit though, maybe it does I just cannot find it. Cheers,

Can't acquire a GPS Singal

As this is a GPS device a complete inability to pick up a GPS signal renders this unit useless. I have updated the software correctly and still it will not work. Avoid this unit at all costs as you will see from other reviews this is not an isolated issue.

Apparently TomTom are aware(according to the retailer, yet they still continue to sell and actively promote this unit!

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
