No street names in 2D mode & Screen too dim w/ Polarized sun glasses

TI99, Amazon
6 June 2014
  • Summary: You can't see the name of the street you are on or the next one you are turning onto when in 2D mode. I have never liked the 3D (brain dead) mode as I can read and navigate with a map. I find myself stopping and referring to a paper map. Other than this very critical flaw, the unit is ok.

  • Summary: In less than 3 months the charger literally fell apart. We'll see how their warranty program works. The unit itself is great.

Depends on what you need it for

Freeline Skater, Amazon
19 October 2013
  • Summary: I usually use a smartphone GpS as they are able to navigate around traffic just as well in most cases. This GPS does a wonderful job in navigating around traffic and getting you from A to B.

It is not perfect.

DORU, Amazon
17 August 2013
  • Summary: I went to south Texas couple weeks ago and brought this device with me. It recognized most of the back roads, but one time it asked me to turn left to the empty field. There is no one there, no car, and it really scared me.

  • Summary: I used this gadget and I liked it. It has nice big screen with crisp colors and contrast. The free maps upgrade is a wonderful feature. GPS guidance is upto the mark with lane assistance and all other features that you could expect in a GPS. Recommend anyone to purchase it!

Much better than my Garmins

SDEF, Amazon
16 May 2013
  • Summary: My first GPS quite a few years ago was a 4.3 inch Navman, that I enjoyed very much and it operated like I do. I believe it was made in New Zealand. I could not get subsequent map updates for it and then could no longer find a U.S based retailer.

Not the high quality of the XXL version

Auriolette, Amazon
7 May 2013
  • Summary: I ordered this after a very disappointing experience on the Garmin 3490, which attracted me because of the size but after experiencing some interface issue and unusual heating issue. I then decided to go back to what I know and like the TOMTOM. I owe the XXL540 since 3 years and it never failed me.
