Summary: I have used it three times since I purchased it.In two out of the three, this GPS could not take me to the exact address, It took me close but I had to resort to the Google maps app in my Android phone to fine tune the address and get there.
Summary: The description says "...your TomTom EASE guides you door-to-door with turn-by-turn spoken instructions INCLUDING STREET NAMES." It does NOT speak street names. This is worded so carefully so as to cover their asses but it is deceptive.

Summary: I have tried updating the map as soon as I received the GPS. It gave an error during update and was not able to operate GPS. I had to return it immediately. But it looks sleek and easy to carry.
Summary: I have the Ease and updated the maps when I got it (you get updated maps free for 30 days). Even with the updated maps the unit is at least 2 years behind. My garmin with 2 year old maps has roads that are non-existent on the TOMTOM. In the age of Google maps on your phone, these maps are not competitive. To tell you how bad it is, My GM maps (in car since 2009) are more up to date then the latest download from TomTom.
Summary: I happen to have one of these given to me through a tire promotion, so "free" can not be "overpriced" in my case. But considering the $85 price listing today on Amazon, this unit is overpriced considering it's almost bare-bones functionality features. In it's most basic application of getting you from point A to point B, it performs well enough.
Summary: I have an older Magellan this was supposed to replace. I will keep my older unit! It doesn't tell yo uthe street or freeway name to turn on. It also doesn't allow you to look at your routing before taking off. NOT user friendly at all. You have to use a pen tip to punch in the address. Can't delete acertain street or highway since you cannot see the routing! Very disappointed in this product! It was ready to go out of the box. Not many instructions.
Summary: Although it appears to work fine, there is no user guide available for this model. I contacted TomTom directly and they confirmed that there is nothing available to advise users how the thing works. Very disappointing.
Summary: I had a Garmin Nuvi that was run over by my car :) So decided to get the cool TomTom (with features like POI correction, celebrity voices etc.). Used it for 50 days, and ended up returning it. Here is why: 1. It doesnt show step-by-step text directions, which is VITAL for my needs. Nuvi did this with one click. Before I head out, I like to know at a high level which freeway/major roads am I going to take.
