Great product. Used it in a European trip and it was invaluable
24 September 2014
Summary: I wanted a GPS under 250 dollars with a wide screen and able to carry a map of the US and Canada and a map of Western Europe at the same time. By first bought was a TomTom XL 330 which not only wasn't able to carry both maps at the same time but to be fair it was a lousy product and ended up returning it for a full refund.
Summary: We bought the Tom Tom from Amazon for our trip to France. I called to ask about another GPS but this one was recommend to us. The only surprise was that the voice definitely did not have great pronunciation of the French towns and cities! But it got us to all our destinations!
Summary: I purchased this GPS as a refurbished unit from an independent seller through Amazon. I had read all the previous reviews of this as well as similar Garmin units with European roads. After 2 days of practice at home we went to Normandy, France for 10 days where we used the unit extensively, including driving to and from the airport outside Paris. I was thrilled with the performance, even on small country roads throughout Normandy and on major highways around Paris.
Summary: Does everything the ads say it will do. Had my 3 weeks now. No complaints. Does more than I had expected from it. The Remote, Bluetooth, and speech recognition are a plus. The TomTom Home software allows downloading of many additional POI's which users have provided. All in all, very pleased!
Summary: This is my 8th GPS in the past several years, and in my opinion, the best I had. I was looking for a GPS that was user friendly, that I could update the maps easily using my computer, that would advice me of traffic delays when in route, and propose alternatives that would be faster. I was also looking for mp3 and audible books player functionality. Then, I wanted to keep my options open, and use Bluetooth streaming of audio and a line out jack, just in case.
