Customers Report That it is Expensive

Two people wrote in their reviews that the TomTom Bandit Action was expensive.

  • Combined with the accessories and extras it is expensive…
  • AWFUL over priced camera, that can only give £100 max for other functions…
    Aaron_lith (Amazon) - December 2015
  • Bargain of the year for sure.
    P (Amazon) - December 2015
  • Is actually pretty cheap, as well as being bright orange, which mitigates against the other potential calamity - losing the almost all white Bandit in the snow!
    ShammyB (Amazon) - July 2015

    Techpuppy (Amazon) - January 2016
  • It is hefty, whether you think of that as good or bad is a matter of opinion.
    BRS (Amazon) - December 2015

    Mimhap (Amazon) - June 2016
  • Ease of use" is a rather subjective term…
    Biff (Amazon) - July 2015
  • On this basis it's far easier to use and saves a lot of time for casual users…
  • Very intuitive, very quick, very easy…
  • The mounts for helmet are sturdy and easy to use…
  • However, after a while when you get used to it it is so easy to use and handle…
    Michael (Amazon) - June 2016
  • And the mobile app is very easy to use and intuitive…
    Michael (Amazon) - June 2016
  • On the plus side it's well made, easy to use, came with good selection of accessories, like the remote that adds highlight markers when pressed during filming to aid ease of editing…
