Summary: So I never reviewed this at the time I purchased it, but thats OK because I feel that my review will be a bit more accurate after owning it long term. To start with, great functionality. We have used all the major GPS brands, but time after time the TomTom units we purchase have been our favorites.
Summary: I purchased this unit to give my Magellan 1412 a rest - and get new maps. I did note that I have found several times that streets are not in the TOMTOM GPS that were (and are) in my other unit. I also noted that the TOMTOM gives different and not always faster directions.
Summary: As far as the features, screen display, size, quality...the Tom Tom is great. My big problem is with the piece that attaches it to my windshield. It doesn't stick well, and when trying to adjust it, it pops off or the Tom Tom pops off the attachment.
Summary: I purchased this unit because my original 630GO unit failed within the one year warranty period. I couldn't find my receipt....and I already had invested a small fortune in the dash board holders, chargers, etc.
Summary: I have a respect for the Tom Tom and was not expecting the problems that I am having. We even took it into an electronics store to ask about it. The tech. stated that the battery life should last longer and the sound shoud get louder. Those are just two of the problems.
Summary: I bought both a Garmin 265W (first) and Tom Tom Go 630 2 weeks later as both were on sale and was unsure which to choose. Even though the Tom Tom had obviously more advanced features, it was dissapointly difficult to use.
Useless "features" were not worth it, horrible mount

Summary: I got this Tomtom because we moved to a new state and I was driving on unfamiliar roads all the time. When we lived in a familiar place, I could usually get away with looking directions up on Google before heading out - since we knew the streets already, you just had to make a mental note of a new...
Summary: Ok, here is the deal, I have been purchasing gps devices for many years, and have had some good ones, some bad ones, and some better than average ones. This gps is good but not great. The traffic feature that I purchased this for is not very good.
