Good for around town, had trouble planning long distance routes

Summary: I bought this because it seemed like a good deal and I had used other tom tom gps's and loved them. It was easy to use and has nice features when driving short distance routes to, say, a new doctor's office, but its route planning for long drives makes me think it must have a different software package than other tom toms. No matter what setting I put it on (ie. shortest time, shortest distance, etc.
Summary: I recently moved back to the United States after retiring from the military. My family moved to a new town in a new state. After getting lost a few times we thought a GPS is what we needed. We got the 140 at Target for a good price and were impressed immediately. UNTIL........... I tried to update the GPS. That is where the trouble began. The map update continually timed out and would not load onto the GPS when using TomTom's HOME program.
