Review: TomTom 3rd Edition GPS

Last Friday, I went to Islands Restaurant on Foothill Blvd in Pasadena. I entered the address into my TomTom 3rd Edition GPS and left from work.

For some odd reason, it told me to take I-710 once I got into Pasadena, which is clearly in the opposite direction for a bit.

This isn’t an isolated incident. Another time, I was going to a friend’s house in Pasadena and it told me to do the same thing. Fortunately, I had my friend’s directions and followed those instead. This doesn’t bode well for this unit, especially for people traveling from the west into the Pasadena area.

Also, these past few weeks, it takes about a minute to acquire the GPS signal.

Fortunately, I haven’t had the “white screen” problem – yet. 😦

I’ll contact TomTom to see if they can fix these issues somehow.
