Summary: This device works fine until you need to purchase a map. We are traveling to Europe and renting a car, so I decided to invest on a good set of maps for the device. Using their application, I selected the map I wanted ($75 is expensive, but I decided to go ahead with the purchase).
Summary: It works, but there has to be something better. It does, mostly, navigate from one place to another. It is VERY interstate-centric. It's algorithm apparently has a strong penalty function for roads that are not limited access highways, so it pretty strongly steers you toward interstates and away...
Summary: I have owned the Tom Tom 720 (it was a gift) for over a year. During that time, it functioned well. However, a few days ago, the Maps, other than Guam, disappeared. I am not a novice with these products. I was sure that the U.S. maps had somehow been deleted.
Summary: i got this GPS as a gift for christmas...althought i didn't need one.. I gave it a chance..I love gadgets..but this GPS is not worth the money the person spent on it.... for the amount of money it should at least come with a case!!! or a better suction cup!!!
I really tried to like the TomTom 720 - but does not hold a candle to the Garmin 660

Summary: After reading reviews on both the Garmin 660 and TomTom 720, I decided to try both. Today took them on a trip of about 200 miles round trip mounted side by side. There has been a ton of information written about both units, so I won't go into a lot of details.
Summary: Loved the features but returned it after one day. I bought a Tomtom 720 last week and traded it in for a Garmin Nuvi 750 the next day because of the poor routing performance. The features were great--easy to enter destination, display screen thoughtfully designed, good satellite locking. However: 1.
Summary: This item comes with a multitude of different attachments which fit together in rather a cheap way and are made from cheap plastic, neither of which fill me with confidence. There are also no instructions, so it takes a little fiddling around to work out what is useful for your particular SatNav.
Summary: When I decided to get a sat-nav, I thought let's go for a top of the range product. When I realised it doesn't quite get all the routes right, I thought fine, nothing is perfect. But then I realised that camera updates are just wrong.
Summary: used Tomtom for years now. Bought a 720 as an upgrade to 700. Great new look, great new features, Very poor quality. Quick menu has to be reset after using Tomtom home every time, cameras didn't work after updates, device asked if I wanted to connect to computer every tiome I plugged it in to car,...
Summary: Brilliant piece of kit when it comes out of the box! However, don't even think about updating the software or downloading ANYTHING (even MapShare corrections) as I've been through 2 TomTom 720s in 3 months. The first one was fine and I used it during the weekend that I received it.
