Summary: No-frills, weatherproof GPS. Been using it for about a year in all kinds of rain and it still works like new. Includes a sturdy mount and wiring (which you'll have to install yourself, not a big deal) or can run off its own battery if you don't want to wire it.
Summary: The problems that I describe below have been resolved quickly with a phone call to customer service. I am also having trouble getting free lifetime maps to update. This was ordered as a Christmas present for me. I was successful at registering the device and loading software on my macbook.
Summary: Giving this four stars even though there were some times that it was not useable due to the sun (I even purchased a wrap around shade for it). Completed a 3650 mile trip and it was helpful for use in remaining time and locating fuel but actually establishing a trip other than "Point A to Point B"...
Summary: The winding roads feature is awesome. The unit is user friendly and works well with gloves on. Still learning how to use all the special features. The Tyre software I'm finding it hard to use or understand, a how too tutorial would help a lot.
Summary: Nice durable unit. The winding road button is wonderful for wasteing time on a spring day. The included software could be better, but it is free. Operating system is standard TomTom. Drawbacks are that there is no audio jack. If you want to hear instructions, you have to use a bluetooth headset.
Summary: I have used two different Garmin GPS units extensively (first a Quest II and then a Nuvi 550) on long distance motorcycle trips. The Quest was slow and the screen on the 550 was poor in sunlight but overall they were decent units.
Summary: When comparing to a Garmin, it's not. With that said, at half the cost it does the job extremely well. Having had a Garmin 550 once upon a time and having to deal with their lack of customer service, I was more than impressed with the customer service I received from TomTom.
