Why is the new Go Camping so user unfriendly
On our most recent trip it worked fine for a couple of days and then one morning refused to work even after trying to do a reset. Of course this was the morning with the caravan on the back going to a new destination. I had to use the “in car sat nav” which is not geared for a caravan being towed. Eventually I got it working again. The next trick was for the voice to disappear and the only way to get it back was to go to "Voices" select another one and then you had voice.
Although set to "Car with caravan" and all dimensions for caravan inputted, it took us down an unsuitable road on the way to a CL. On setting it back to "car" and trying the same route again without the caravan it took the correct route using a decent road and other trips back to the caravan site without the caravan. Tried it again in "Car with caravan" setting and it avoided the unsuitable road in question? Voice still disappears.
Another issue is that you cannot change or adjust destination while moving and have to come to a complete stop which is a hassle especially when it is the passenger is setting up the unit and you are on a motorway!
Lastly at the bottom there is normally a banner showing the speed restriction and your speed even when no destination has been inputted. This banner now only comes up on occasions.
We are very disappointed in this version of the TomTom Go camping which we only bought because TT told us that our old Go Camping 1005 unit could not be fixed. We have since had it fixed at a cost of under £25!
