Summary: Works ok but laks a lot of cities that I visit in NY and you can't get any more detailed maps from TomTom for the GO300. It did'nt even list the city my cabin was in told me I was in a town 20 miles away.
Summary: The product and accessories included in the retail box are all that you need, ready to GO. For the USA, you really don't need to view the enclosed CD to get GOing. The little manual is short and generally satisfactory to start using the TTG 300 right away.
Summary: I bought a Tom Tom Go 300 a few months ago. It works as advertised 95% of the time. It almost always gets you to the right street but will usually be off by 50 or 100 yards from the specific address.
Summary: I used it around my city and even took it to Hawaii and it was a lot of help. People forget that the idea of the GPS is to help you find where you are, where you want to go and how to get there but like everything else, it may not be 100% correct -what really is?

Summary: I decided it was finally time to get myself a GPS navigation system for my car. I went into the store and had the clerk help me choose one. I had only a few requirements... 1) It would have to be something that can be easily moved between cars and could be removed and brought inside.
Summary: I just bought this a few days ago while on vacation in Florida and have used it a lot in that time. Two weeks ago I bought a Magellan 300 GPS system and liked it except that half the time it wouldn't tell me to turn even though it showed to turn on the display.
Summary: We borrowed a TomTom from a friend to drive to Mass. one weekend. I said "We don't need that, it's all Thruway to the Mass Pike"! Oh, how little I knew! First of all, it's a fun gadget, has great graphics and a mulitple voice-feature (we picked a Aussie guy!
Summary: Jan 06 Since writing the original review, I've had more experience with this unit. Although you can't realistically expect a GPS to know all the shortcuts, the TTG 300 routing is so poor and so unpredictable that I'm going to sell it and look for another unit.
Summary: I bought the GO 300 about 7 weeks ago. During that time I've used it on two road trips and travel for work, no more Mapquest. It definately reduces your stress while driving, especially in areas with road construction where you are forced to take a detour.
Summary: I've used the TomTom GO for about 6 months now and travelled all over the west coast, USA. It is really an attractive model unlike the dull looking garmin ones. I love the touch screen and the easy to navigate menus.
