Summary: They only last a year! In 5 years I went through 4 TOM TOMs. When you really need them to work , they go dead. Contacted TOM TOM's main Office only to find out they can not repair them. After complaining to the company ,I shipped two dead units back to the main office,Then and only then did they make good on ONE unit! I have since used GARMIN ,nuvi and I an very satisfied after 3 years with GARMIN! AND Garmin gives you free map upgrades.
Cons: Will send you up one way streets the wrong way. It gets fixated on wrecks. It will insist on taking you off your route to take you through an accident. If you prform a soft reset of the unit, it will start working correctly again.
"Misleading information on box about lifetime maps."
3 July 2012
Pros: Large screen. Good warnings about exceeding speed limit. Reasonably good text to speech directions. Good data on nearby gas stations, shops, etc.
Cons: Unlike what it says on the box lifetime updates does not apply to Europe. EXTRA CHARGE FOR THAT! Delivers voice instructions too slowly. Poor reliability, first unit I bought had to be replaced by TomTom, took over 30 days.
"BEST GPS I'VE EVER OWNED, LANE GUIDENCE HAS SAVED ME!!!"

Pros: The lane guidence on this is amazing, there is no way u can miss a turn, and the route recalculation if you take a wrong turn is the fastest I've used. It even tells you what time you will arrive at your destination and knows how busy the traffic is!
Cons: TomTom products are garbage. DO NOT BUY! Our first one stopped working properly while my husband was in a strange city and when he looked it up he found a ton of people had the same defect and there's no way to fix it. He had to buy a new TomTom because t
Cons: - My TomTom is very bad (it is a way to update the device). As a matter of fact, I hate it. Tomtom Home was bad but TomTom was able to created an even worse system. I waist more than 6 hours trying to make it works. - This GPS is very expensive (>USD 3

Pros: The live features including Traffic, impressively accurate and quick to update. Very responsive touch screen. Lots of features and benifits for the price. On sale for 279 this week, more features than you need!
Cons: Some of the normal customizations that are standard on older Tomtom units are not YET available for this unit. But unless your dieing for a Homer Simpson voice on your unit, who cares!
