You will waste less time being lost than programing a custom route.

Summary: You will spend more time fighting with it to go the route you want, because it decides where you are going to go and not where you want to go. After owning one for 5 years I threw it in the garbage after fighting with it for an hour (no exaggeration) to program a route for my wife that was only 425mi. This wasn’t the first time I did battle with it, but it was the last. Don’t waste your money.

Summary: I'm sorry but this is not what we ordered. We wanted a bluetooth Gps and it was worded that way but when this came it worked fine except for there was nothing to connect with my cell phone. The law in N.J. states no cell phonesm,and unless we use "handsfree", we would be in danger of getting a ticket, if caught talking on a cell phone.We found out we would need to subscribe for the added luxury, which would cost a monthly fee, so we returned the item and look for some...
Summary: I received my Tom Tom as a gift for Christmas '07. Within a year the sound was going. First it would come in and out and then it just quit. Called the 800 number and they helped me delete and reload the application. Fast forward a few months, same problem! I called the 800 number again and did the same thing only this time it didn't work. Since the GPS is over 1 year old the best they can do is offer me a $50.00 coupon off of another one........

Summary: I bought this as a gift for my in-laws. It was later given back to me because they just couldn't figure out how to get it to work properly. First of all, it thought they were in Guam (we live in Pennsylvania). After 3 hours of fussing with it, I finally got it to load the correct map. After that, there was ZERO GPS reception, even outside with a clear sky and 10 minutes of allowing it to sit. Called TomTom's tech support.
Summary: Although I bought this at a good price, it definitely has its drawbacks. IF you choose to purchase this GPS, PLEASE, by all means, use the TomTom Home software (included with the GPS) to BACK-UP THE SOFTWARE ON YOUR GPS!! That was the 1st thing that I did. Secondly, I updated the Maps to the most current - good idea, right? Well, when I was done doing that, I suddenly ONLY had the default Guam map loaded.
Summary: The first XL i purchased died in 1month. I exchanged it and the new one seemed fine until i tried to update the maps because it sent me to a wrong location. Now i can only get maps of Guam! Since i live in NY this is a problem. They are aware of the problem (due to many complaints) but they do not have a patch for the problem.
