Summary: I got a tom tom 510 with a 4 inch screen with bluetooth head set features for my b-day this gps is excellent.It works great I am very pleased with this product it is very accurate gets me to my destination with no problem.Plus it is a refurbished tom tom from the factory with full year warranty.I have had several people at my work asking me where did I get my gps.I simply say amazon.com.
Summary: This unit is an older unit so the software loaded with it is dated 2006. I just bought in in July 2008. For anyone looking for the most up to date maps out of the box this is not the unit for you. I bought this to replace a Magellan Roadmate. It has some nice features but could use some the Magellan had such as multiple users and an easier to access volume control.
Summary: The item came quickly. It was well packed. And the setup instructions were cear and easy to understand. The functionality and installation are good. There is a learning curve to use all of the units capabilities. Good product.
Pros: This is a full-featured unit that is well worth the discount price that refurbs are going for (Less than $180) Bright easy to read map and audible instructions. Fast recalculations & online updates
Summary: I got this model for my husband for Christmas. So far, we love it. We had one instance where we had to restart the machine, but other than that, nothing. I couldn't beat the price (which was closer to $130). However, we are not explorers. Ours is used mainly to pick up a used toy on Craigslist or occasionally to navigate DC traffic on a business trip. So for light travel, occasional fun and random business, this is a good buy.
Summary: I do a lot of traveling and purchased my first 510 last year. My wife, who is directionally challenged, marveled at how easy it was for me to find any destination without even looking at a map. As a result, I purchased her the same model for Christmas. She says this is the best present I ever gave her! It was easy to use right out of the box, and generally right on the money. My only complaint is that it sometimes takes a few minutes to catch the satellite signal.
Summary: The Tom Tom 510 is a good GPS unit. I do wish I had bought the portable unit that has the text to speech feature. I am a Realtor, so I use it a bunch and so far it has found every property correctly. My only issue was Amazon said it had so many used and new units. I bought the new unit, but when I received the product it was refurbished. A very misleading advertisement!!! The 510 has a good windshield mount, but the thin portable unit would have been better for me.
