Summary: i prefer the tomtom over many other gps units, because it has 3 separate 'speed alerts', once tells you if you're going over the speed limit (that you need to set the first time your on a road), the second tells u if you're going over a 'set speed', and the third 'dims the display' when over another set speed...

It does'nt have all the bells and whistles that your more expensive models have but for know more than I use it for like finding jobsites finding out of town places points of interest and the sporting events for the kids its perfect for our family if anything ever happens to it I would get another one just like it.
Summary: I got this GPS for a friend. I always have used garmin and now even more so my smartphone with google maps. I am very happy with the quality of this tom tom and to get the same features on a garmin I know I would be spending twice as much. After purchasing this tom tom I am thinking for the time I do not have my smartphone with me or just need an easy to use and cheap gps to get me from point a to be b that it might be time to to sell my expensive garmin (which hardly...
