Consider to buy another one, this one is waste of money
23 June 2013
Summary: I have purchased this nit back in 2011 and after couple month the battery kept dying. After researching this problem, it appears there is a known bug that the gps wakes up by itself and drains all battery. No firmware update ever resolved it. Avoid, not recommending, seems like a widely known issue.
Summary: I got this because it was a deal. I should've known TomTom has a funny way of making you forced to update maps, and in LA a lot of stuff changes so you may as well not even bother with this thing. I use this now as a back-up gps. I just hope this thing does find if and when my phone dies.
Summary: I received this model for Xmas and I am so glad I did not pay for it. My only previous experience using a GPS was with the much better Garmin models from rental cars. This Tom Tom constantly got lost or froze on some of the winding hillside neighborhood roads in my area.
Summary: I can't load new maps or process updates via Mac. Tom Tom is aware of this and yet they advertise their product as Mac compatible. Many hours on the phone with Tom Tom, many OS X updates and the unit gets "ejected". Amazon is great. Tom Tom is lousy.
Summary: TomTom = Experience from HELL!!! Under any circumstances, DO NOT get talked into purchasing a Map Update Service. I had my TomTom device for two years and right before my big trip I decided to update my maps. I purchased the upgrade for $77 and could not upload it onto my device.
DO NOT BUY ! STOPPED WORKING 2 WEEKS AFTER I LEFT FB

Summary: I WILL NEVER BUY FROM Lexley5 AGAIN! PRETTY MUCH SAID TOO BAD FOR ME. WTF WHY YOU GOING TO SELL PIECES OF GARBAGE ON EBAY? GPS SEEMED NICE BUT TOOK LONGER AND LONGER TO CUT ON EVERY TIME I PRESSED TO POWER BUTTON, AUDIO GOT QUIETER. . . THEN NOTHING! THIS STOPPED WORKING.
Summary: This item was a gold box special, and I thought the price was good to get my first GPS. A multitude of problems right out of the box and I would give Tom Tom tech support 5 stars for telling the truth, it's not a very good GPS, and not worth the time trying to get it to work.
