Summary: Received this item fast, was inexpensive and works like a charm. Helped me out of a pinch several times finding destinations and saving me valuable time. Easy to use and the touchscreen make it much simpler to use.
Excerpt: We've tried several brands but always go back to Tom Tom for both my wife and I. We don't even use the one built into the car. Road repairs, traffic problems are all there and free updates for life. We bought this one because it cost too much to update an older model. We tried a Garmin because it was in stock but took it back and ordered this one.
Pros: Acquires Satellites Quickly, Compact, Easy Menus, Easy To Read, Easy To Set Up, Large Screen, Reliable Performance, Simple Controls
Summary: The TomTom Go Live is very easy to use and gives very clear and concise directions. We especially like that when traveling on a highway and there is a split in the highway or a large exit ramp, the TomTom Go Live shows how many lanes go each way so you know you can stay in the left two or three lanes or the right two or three lanes.
Summary: Purchased for my uncle after he dropped a few hints for his birthday. I did some research, checked on CNET for reviews and compared them with what Amazon was offering. Found one from the "Top 5" list and it had an incredible price on Amazon. Purchased it and it was at his house in 2 days. The man has not let it go. He immediately registered it, so he will be getting 'lifetime' updated maps. I helped him pair his Blackberry and my aunt's cell phone to the TomTom.
Summary: My first one of these died exactly at the year mark. so I bought an expensive garmin. I hated it and bought this one again for the traffic. The garmins traffic is awful. The traffic on the Tom Tom is awesome! The tomtom also seems to take a better route most of the time, the garmin seems to take you right into the traffic and take you the long way to get to it. after one week I had to have my old tomtom back. hopefully it last longer than the warrantee this time.
