Summary: Very nice device, "does what it says on the tin". The only issue I have is with the supplier who charged VAT when were outside of the VAT jurisdiction, and they refuse to return the VAT to individuals! So, if you would like one of these units, they are great, but if you are an export customer,, then don't deal with LCD & Plasma Service GmbH as they seem unable to undersatnd the export rules!!

Summary: This unit arrived in quick time so full marks for dispatch and delivery. Ease of use could be better, I've used a Garmin for four years(almost impossible to update plus lately the screen begins to blank out at times) and other Tom Tom units at work but there is still a steep learning curve here. Favourites (and where am I now) take far too long to bring up, several menues needing to be accessed first.
Summary: Bought this to replace a Garmen that kept shutting down - loved Garmen for over 6 years but 2nd and 3rd ones were unreliable. Everyone said how easy Tom Tom is to use - I am still battling - obviously because of 6 years with Garmen. Will get used to but the main problem for me is that the sound, via blue tooth (iPhone), when receiving calls is horrendous - I cannot hear anyone so have to pull off the road - they can hear me perfectly - just not the other way round.
Summary: Tom Tom fails to impress with its ease of use and clear screen and directions. Wouldn't have anything else. Wide screen so easy to see and newer screen holder is much better. Mine came with a free unlimited map update which is why I bought it, wouldn't have swapped otherwise but upgrading each year is so expensive but essential if you want it to go what its designed for.
