Summary: does what you need it to do. we had trouble trying to program it to avoid a certain route that we knew was crowded, even though it has a "travel via" feature. one time it went into 2D mode and we couldn't get it back into 3D. But the next time we turned it on, the problem had resolved itself.
Not better than old one except lifetime map updating
3 August 2015
Summary: I had an old TomTom gps which needs to purchase for map updating. This product attracted me because of the lifetime map updating. Since I had old TomTom, the usage of the device was pretty similar which was good for me but there was a few inconvenience compare to the old one. 1.
Summary: I bought this and i only use it for when i'm traveling so i passed the window for returning it but it takes atleast 5 minutes to find a satellite and then it keeps losing signal. It also stutters and it tells me more roads not to take than it does to take.
Summary: I wouldn't buy it again, and may yet return it. I've experienced new GPS' from the three majors (Garmin, Magellan, TomTom) in the last month, and I'm universally disappointed in all of them. They all have fatal flaws, some of them universal to all 3.
and thought one that would allow me to update maps would be great, but

Summary: I've had tomtoms in the past, and thought one that would allow me to update maps would be great, but.... You have no way to contact the company to ask a question, only pages and pages of FAQ and forums.

Summary: Average in my opinion its cheaper that some other TomTom models but I had a few problems when I took a detour there was a really long delay while it calculated another route and as far as I can remember when I turned on the GPS and would write down a destination it would load really slow also.
so it is hard to recommend any device that falls to the floor repeatedly

Summary: The most significant problem is the suction attachment does not stay attached, so it is hard to recommend any device that falls to the floor repeatedly. Secondly, the "lifetime maps" are there for your PURCHASE, not free.
Summary: I bought the 50M to replace my Tomtom 1605 tm. To say I miss my 1605 is an understatement: I loved the six inch screen and the colors that just jump out at you and that you can see in any light.
