Pros: NONE, cant say one good thing about the unit or the company.
Cons: Purchased my GPS in Jan of 2011. Had the unit replaced twice in one year. After the one year warranty ran out and my third unit quit working right, they said there was nothing they could do about it.
If you can learn to jump through hoops... at least it doesn't use Windows.

Summary: The best thing about the TomTom line is that it doesn't use Microsoft Windows. The second best thing is that the screen is really sharp. That's about it. The software is not intuitive, the Voice Command is wonky, and it's not as precise as my previous GPS. Still, maybe they'll improve the software.

Pros: Big screen, good graphics, fairly accurate maps. Updates using the Internet based function works well, but only when TomTom decides to send updates, which is very infrequent. Used it in Florida and it worked well there.
Cons: Very poor ability to add any additional content. Very infrequently updated by TomTom. Doesn't work with the computer based app that is used to update most other TomTom devices. Battery doesn't last long when not plugged in. Fairly heavy.
Summary: It was a wonderful purchase. I had a TomTom previously that died after 4 years and hesitating in purchasing a new one. My husband went and purchased at Best Buy and I came over to eBay. Same model but what a saving I had. Love my TomTom because I have no since of direction and need all the help I can get. Thats TomTomDr.
Summary: Well... Here it goes... BUY A GARMIN!!! Got TWO of these and one had a bad connector and the other was DOA right out of the box. Maps would not load. Reinstalled them (via TomTom directions) and still no go! TomTom customer support STINKS! It is the WORST I have ever dealt with. Totally worthless. I waited a week for a reply and the reply I got was, "Sorry, I was on vacation"..What? Nobody could take her cases (Out of the country (USA) tech support by the way..
Summary: Red light camera warning is great. Lane guidance helps a lot. I love the new magnetic mount. Finds the satellite much quicker than my old gps. Updating the maps is still a chore. Free lifetime traffic and Map updates are sweet!

1 September 2011
Pros: Big and bright screen. Interface is nice, very easy to navigate thru the menu
Cons: Charging plug is not standard usb, you will need to buy from Tomtom if you need to replace the one that came if the unit. Most of the features are not implemented yet. Update from tomtom websites is not working.

19 June 2011
Pros: Sleek, slim, 100s of (navigation) features, accurate directions, the NEW easy mount is the best in the industry, big GLASS screen, highly configurable with POIs and other stuff, easy to use all features after learning curve, don't think Garmin offers Pinc
Cons: Bit of a steep learning curve, still haven't learned how to enter and submit Map Corrections. Sometimes wants to take you on a different route then the one you KNOW is the best, but the unit is SELF LEARNING so corrects itself the next time you want to g
