Summary: Easy to navigate. The longer I have it though the more it seems to lose my location (while driving - even on the interstate) and/or take time to locate where I am when I first start on my trips.
Summary: Just purchased the GPS a couple of months ago. It was a great find for a great price. However after using it for a couple of months, the car charger cable wouldn't charge the device. I had to find strange was of holding the plug in place. Don't know if it is the GPS that is faulty or the plug.
Summary: I bought it as a gift for my grandma, and it seemed pretty easy to use. There are a few inconveniences: - No button to control the volume. Need to look for it on the touch screen, and the location is not intuitive. - A bit slow in searching for satellite signal at startup.
Summary: My Tom Tom Ease was a gift for Father's Day and it was simple to set up and use, on the surface. The computer voice calling out street names was very helpful, although annoying to my wife/passenger. The unit quickly recalculated a new route when I decided to not take its directions.
Summary: This does work right out of the box but it doesn't have some features that I feel are basic. You can't choose whether to take expressway or local roads. It doesn't have the abiliity to view your route as text so you can see your route.

Summary: Read updates at the end! I have a couple of different GPS units - an off-road/hiking model, and a higher-end Garmin for my auto - cost more than twice what this Tom Tom sells for. My expectations for the Ease were not that high - I figured it would be a basic, no-frills unit. In part, it is.
