Summary: I was replacing a 3 year old TomTom XXL as buying this unit on sale was about the same as getting new maps. This unit has lifetime maps. What I say here may be of most help to those who are also replacing an older unit. Pro's: * Suction cup mount is now integral with unit and folds flush for easy storage. The cup works easily and holds well * The screen, though smaller than my old unit, is higher resolution and easier to read * Satellite pick-up is faster.
Great product. Get you where you want to go Butttttttttttttttttttt.........

Summary: This is a pretty neat Tom Tom. After all, I am just an old cuntry boy, AKA "Old Fart", and do not look for many bells and whistles in a product. Just for it to get me from point A to point B, beyond and back home. This Tom Tom will take you way out in the country and other places before going to the location you want it to go but it will get you there. Guess I do need to keep the old handy dandy Map in my vehicle to map the way as well as use this thing.
Summary: A good package with everything I need. However, connecting to it was a problem at first - I needed to do a "soft reset" (holding down the off key until the drumbeat sounds 30s). There was no mention of this in the (almost non-existent) manual. You can update the maps and speed cameras (once only and on the same day) Unfortunately, I opted to download the maps update first; there was no warning that this would take 3 hours!
Summary: I bought this to replace an earlier Tomtom. Glad I did, as in the short while I have it seems to be a great improvement. It is more accurate, & the spoken street names are a help, as is the lane guidance at junctions. The set up was not as easy as I would have liked, but I got there in the end. Overall, a good tool for the money.
