Summary: I purchased this unit a year and a half ago and it worked great for the first 6 months or so. After an extended period of time however, I have had the following issues: "Lifetime" Maps - my initial purchase supposedly included lifetime map downloads.
Summary: Works great and delivered quickly. Free updates every few weeks. I placed it in front of my speedometer since it displays the speed on screen. That keeps it out of view from outside as long as you have tinted windows.It only obstructs the speedometer/odometer on my 2013 Toyota Sienna.
Summary: Nice Sat Nav for a recent trip to Europe. I purchased the Western European maps, and loaded the countries we planned to visit. For the most part, it worked really well. Pros: 1. Large display is really easy to see 2.
Summary: Tried this based on some of the good reviews and promptly returned it after one trip. Got another Garmin. The problem with TomTom is the inability to stay zoomed out or in. You can zoom in and out, but it only stays for a second and defaults to a set view.
Tomtom 1605TM - great GPS unit but Hopeless Software

Summary: While this is a great GPS unit (in terms of size and directions) it is absolutely hopeless in terms of map updates. This is my second unit that i had to get replaced from amazon and unfortunately it does not update itself. Emails send to tomtom support have been going in thin air without any answer.

Summary: COULBN'T BE HAPPIER. DEBATED BETWEEN THE 5" AND 6" SCREEN BEFORE MY PURCHASE AND CHOOSE THE 6". IT WAS EASY AND SIMPLE TO USE, EVEN FOR THE TECHNICALLY CHALLENGED AS MY GRANDCHILDREN REFER TOO ME. WOULD RECOMMEND THIS GPS TO ANYONE SEARCHING FOR A GREAT BUY AND QUALITY PRODUCT.
Summary: When I first got it, I tried it around my town and it worked quite well, very accurate. Then I tried it for an address about 25 miles away. It lost GPS contact after the first 5 miles and then wouldn't give me a business address I wanted even though it was at a major intersection.
