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: Firstly, it's poor that a product like a satnav, at its price, isn't sold with a protective case as standard, but consumerism now dictates that all items should be capable of making additional profit via add-ons.
Summary: I was very excited when the Tom Tom arrived because it looked very nice and seemed very sophisticated. Perhaps that is it's problem, it is such a complex device in what it (should) do that it crashes like a Microsoft computer!
Summary: This item is quite simply not fit for purpose. I bought it in order to attach to the dashboard of my Focus - not the flattest dashboard in the world, granted, but I figured that with a good suction cup and a lock it might work.
