Summary: Pros: +Pleasant interface. Very well polished product. +Only touchscreen, no buttons (except power and eject) +Catches satellites pretty quickly. It was catching satellites from within my bedroom which was particularly impressive +You can set route a certain way: ie avoid toll charges, use highways,...
Summary: This review is being written nearly two years after I purchased the TomTom 700. I drive an average of 25,000 miles a year. The map updates of North Amercia/US. released in Jan 2007 are great. THe POI's (points of interest) are improved and accurate.
Summary: I am an expreienced user of GPS Navigation systems. This is my fourth unit. This product has a lot of nice features but many annoyances. If everything worked easily, I would give it a 5 star rating.
Summary: My wife and I were in the first week of what turned out to be an eight-month trip to Europe. We had gotten lost so many times already it was painful. Medieval European towns wouldn't know the meaning of "grid" if you hit them with it. They streets go every which way.
Read all the reviews and decide yourself, I guess.

Summary: I have had a 700 TomTom for about five months. I actually won it from an electronics magazine I subscribe to...Anyway, I love it. I also have Magellan 760's on work vehicles, but much prefer the TomTom. Here's why; TomTom has no buttons. All touch screen. Beautiful.
Summary: I purchased a TomTom Go and have had problems with the touch screen ever since. It malfunctioned within 6 months of purchase and I had to send it in to be repaired, they said they were unable to repair it and sent me a brand new one.
Summary: I bought this unit because it had all the features that I was looking for. However...it took five to ten minutes to find the GPS signal to start working, it gave confusing directions on the highway when I came to divided highways.
Summary: I received this as a gift in January. It comes in handy because I get lost ALL the time. THe first one crashed and they sent me a new one. This one is now acting up. I'm not sure if this is the most reliable on the maket
