"Save your Money, Update your cell or buy a Garmin."
2 December 2011
Pros: Looks very nice.But no support unless you spend more money to update the Tom Tom you just bought.I called Tom Tom and told them how inacurate there map was, they said I had to "Buy a new Map!" for $49.99, ***! I explained it was new.no help
Cons: There is no need for these anymore since cell phone can access the internet and pin point exactly where you are.The tom tom will not stayed power on it own for more then 15 minutes then its dead Tom Tom Support will not help these will be obsolete.
Cons: My TomTom One XL worked pretty good (almost very good) until I spent $80 to get 18 months of map updates. Heaven forbid you ever have to update this thing, and you will because the map mine came with was pretty out of date. Updating this thing completely
Summary: I drive through a complex intersection and this thing recaculates and I'm lost for 20 seconds. Although I have shortest route programmed into the unit, I'm always directed to a major toll road like the NJ Turnpike or NJ Parkway. And believe it or not I was once directed down a dirt road with deep mud puddles in my white Mercedes and unitl I sold the car if you got the light a certain way in the paint you could still see the stain.
Summary: We had this product for less than a year and it completely stopped working. It would restart as if you were using it for the first time and make you go through all the settings. I would get to voice setting, choose, and then it would restart and go through the whole process again. I could never get further than that. By the time I contacted Tom Tom customer service, it had been a year and a month and they refused to do anything to help us.
Summary: I like the actual device, especially compared to the equivalent Garmin, but the map routing is quite likely to be seriously inaccurate, and has either led me in the completely wrong direction, has led me on a wild goose chase, or veered from the most direct route, and in some cases simply cannot find the correct location. I've stopped using it after only six months as I cannot depend on it, and have returned to the far more reliable mapquest or googlemaps.
Summary: I have been frustrated using this GPS due to it's cumbersome menu search. It did not come with a user manual nor a CD instructional. Upon calling the company I was told that the product was rushed and if I wanted I could visit their web site to download the materials. Downloading failed. Updates are impossible to obtain. Tom Tom fails to recognize remote areas (that's where you need this thing to work). The unit even fails to recognize the street I live on.

Summary: The TomTom company seems OK, but sometimes their satellite system doesn't work. However, its better than my phone GPS. The windshield of my car is not vertical. It sweeps back at a very odd angle. Look up Photos of the Honda Fit so You can see the problem I am having. The strange angle also makes the lower portion of the windshield at arm's length from the driver.
