Summary: My biggest disappointment with this unit is, it must be powered on and off manually. It doesn't turn off when you turn off your ignition, even though power is cut to the lighter plug. The menus are also confusing and don't seem to follow any logic. It will take some getting used to. Again the biggest problem is remembering to turn it off when exiting the auto.
Summary: I bought the TomTom Start 45 and when I went to test it out by putting in my work address it took to me about 15 minutes out of the way. My Garmin had no problem getting me there. The route is very simple all highway and right of an exit. I then put in an address about 1/2 mile from my work place and it had no problem getting me there. I thought this was outdated I called TomTom support and I had the latest maps update.
Summary: Power cord is too short. No instructions without going on line. Fewer features than many older, cheaper models. Harder to use than many older models. Speed limits on US map are not correct for stretches of some interstate highways. Menu is confusing.
Summary: The unit is pretty sweet, but the winshield mount is a joke. I hit a bump in the road and the TomTom gps falls out of the holder and slides across my dashboard. TomTom needs to consult with Garmin to see how to make a holder for the windshield...
