More Bells/Whistles but not as nice as Garmin Nuvi

Summary: Had the Tomtom 920 for one week for a trip from Los Angeles to Mammoth Lakes. Found 2 of my friends homes which Nuvi 650 had located on the wrong sections of streets. It did not find 2 business addresses correct though which really bothered me more as it drove me a mile away. Also had funny routes going back to LA that were not ideal. I bought it mainly for the voice recognition feature which does work well but as others found does not really save time, just hands on.
Lots of Potential, Does Not Live Up to Expectations

Summary: After waiting two months for my TomTom 920, it finally showed up. While there are lots of good features about the unit, there are enough disadvantages to make you think twice about purchasing this unit. As with another reviewer, I live in Hawaii. As he described, the unit does not work for Hawaii-based address formats.
Summary: Just got this. I was debating between this and the Garmin nuvi 660. A friend has the 660 so I figured I try the TomTom. In terms of navigation accuracy, it's pretty good. Locked in on a gps signal in seconds after turning it on for the first time; I was still in a covered parking structure. Location accuracy is good as well but it always depends on your location and environment (eg, tall buildings). The 920 always reminds you of what turns to make.
Summary: I've spent the past few weeks picking out the "best" portable GPS unit. Features in particular that I was looking for are Text to Speech, MP3 player, FM Modulator (transmitter) and Blue Tooth phone capabilities. I purchased the Garmin Nuvi 660 (about 4 Bills), Garmin Nuvi 680 (about 5 Bills), and the TomTom Go 920 (about 4 Bills) to sample with the intention of returning the other two. My ultimate decision was the Garmin Nuvi 680.
Summary: I have had one of these since January 08. It's performance has been terrible and the maps are BAD out of date. The first unit I had started freaking out and telling me to turn on non existing roads, freezing up, recalculating MANY times in a short span with no logical reason to do so. It took a LONG time and MANY calls to the company to get authorization to return the unit.
Summary: Pretty much everything has been said before. Mount needs to be better. Also, voice entry didn't work. Cust support tries, but still doesn't work. Had updates and downgrades and still no solution. Would have liked all features to work as advertised right out of the box. Quality assurance or system verification leaves some to be desired. If I shipped SW basic functionality that didn't work I would loose my job.
Summary: TomTom GO 920 Portable GPS Vehicle Navigator I am now using the device for quite some time. Here is the fast summary of my experience: + best GPS receiver I have seen so far: fast, extremely accurate, even between high rise buildings like in New York it is accurate. Even inside some houses you still get a signal + Maps are good + Mapsharing is a cool thing and very elpful.
