I like TomTom products but didn't realize the screen was so small
23 September 2011
Summary: Screen is too small for my use and I am afraid I would have a difficult time viewing the screen and information on the screen. I have other TomToms so I do like the product just the size is not a good fit for me.
Summary: I own a Garmin (comparative in price)and I have tried this TomTom. The TomTom is very easy to use and set up is great. It's very compact. I like how you can download other owner's street corrections. It also has a lot of customizing features. What I don't like. The TomTom seems to always pick out of the way directions both in distance and in time. Garmin picks the same routes I would have taken 9 out of 10 times. You have to manually change the display from night to day.
Summary: Easy to use, can find anywhere I need to go. It takes a few minutes to acquire the satellite, but if I turn it on just before I go it's fine. People say it can be a little slow, but I'm in a big city and if I drive at a reasonable speed it has no problems keeping up. Very quick to adjust when I make a wrong turn. Overall, VERY pleased.
Summary: This model Tom Tom loses connection with the sattelites often. Sometimes it is right when I need turn information. If I elect not to follow the path suggested by the GPS it is very, very slow calculating another route. I could have done better; I should have done better.
