It Gets Me To Where I Need To Be

Caitlin Bandel, Amazon
19 May 2013
  • 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

digitalprem, Ebay

  • 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.

If you don't know any better avoid buying this product

A. Total Jump Inc. "blacky", Amazon

  • Summary: I think this is a good product, but they don't choose most of the time the best route, and if you decide to take a short cut, they should adjourn themselves to the final destination, instead of over and over and over wanting to return to the point that you left. This is a no no way to return where you already crossed over. At this moment I would not suggest this product. Magellano is a better product.

It's okay

  • Summary: I bought this for my mom (75 years old). I have loaned her my smaller Garmin, and I thought a bigger screen would be nice. Pros: The bigger screen is nice. Cons: The suction will not keep when stuck to the provided dash mount disc. Also, the keyboard is VERY sensitive and has been difficult for my mom to keep from making typos. My Garmin is much better with the screen keypad.

AD is misleading.

BayviewBob "BayviewBob", Amazon

  • Summary: Copied from the Product details for the TomTom XL 340 4.3-Inch Portable GPS Navigator "Spoken turn-by-turn instructions and 3D graphics will guide you to any address in the United States, Canada, and Mexico--including more than 7 million preloaded points of interest" This model DOESN'T include the spoken street name in the instructions.

Really Good Basic GPS Unit

Dawn M. Butler, Amazon
5 December 2009
  • Summary: This was a replacement for the company failure of Mio and their Moov Series of GPS units. The 340 is easy to use. The menus are straight forward. However, many of the things I set in the preferences never actually worked on the unit. For instance: Display street names is on. The unit decides which street names it wants to display. All the alerts are off. I hit 70 MPH and all of a sudden there are loud gongs going off. Unit set to display location.
