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.
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!
Summary: voice recognition always gets address wrong so better to type it in, only use Plan a route from Home location- as it resets to that anyways- make sure you have exact address- and town- and street- some towns are called ( surrey, south Surrey, North surrey, white rock, etc..) if you do not have it exactly right it will not accept the streets. Definitely cannot plan a trip while driving, need to pre-program it, and GPS takes a long time to reset and find a signal.
