Summary: I love this navigator. I never get lost anymore, even when there are traffic jams, road closures or wrecks to bypass. It sits solidly on my dash and the display is large and easy to read. The map updates are a little pricey, but otherwise I have no complaints. My cell phone will navigate me fine but the phone also opens me up to privacy issues. With my Tom Tom, I can keep others out of my space while getting where I want to go efficiently.
Summary: My TomTom XL340 worked like a champ for three years until a software update during the week of May 13, 2013. Since then, the device is inoperable. I called tech support, and all they said was to try reformatting it. When that didn't work despite trying different computers and cables, all Tom Tom would offer was a 20% discount on a new device that was still cheaper through Amazon. Thanks, but no thanks, TomTom.
Summary: I bought this GPS navigator because I needed a GPS for emergencies and my phone isn't compatable with using GPS. This way if I'm stuck in traffic or need to know where to go on the fly I can just look it up now and go. It takes a little getting used to the settings and how to work it, but it explains it step by step in the tutorial in the first usage. And it even hooks into your computer to update and set preferences. It does what it's supposed to do, thanks!
Refurbished TomTom could end up being expensive! Maps very old! Maps pricey

Summary: I bought this product obviously to get around strange places. It calls out street names and shows proper lane position in advanced. You can buy into extra services like: gas prices; traffic camera warnings; and updated maps. It has live traffic updates. It will let you detour your route and go to points of interest along the way. The PROBLEM with buying a refurbished unit: TomTom considers the unit to be used.
I would recommend this product to anyone, it is a wonderful device!
