Works great, but not in sunlight if you wear sunglasses.

Summary: This is the 2nd Tom Tom XL series I bought, both with the same problem. First was a #330-S and the newer one is #340-S, which is much better than the 330. It sets up instantly and works great "out-of-the box" if you are driving in a cloudy area or at night. But when it mounted on the windshield and the sun comes up, the screen goes dark. If you wear sunglasses, it is impossible to see.
Summary: I had this unit for about 2 years and I am not very happy with it when I compare it with my wife's Garmin. This is not very intuitive and it you have to click 3 times to finish a trip, it is anoing. I do not recomend it. The trafic is not great either sometimes works others it didn't but that is the issue with all the units with traffic.
Summary: It was good, until it stopped working one year and 4 months after I bought it. How disappointing! It will not get a signal, it won't update and I am not happy with the device. It was expensive, and it had good reviews, but now it's useless. There does not seem to be any way to fix it.
Summary: Whatever the other merits of TomTom, I wouldn't buy this again because of the absolutely terrible interface between the TomTom and a PC. Someone - now canned, I hope - has created the worst software I have used in a decade. It truly seems to have been designed to make it difficult to accomplish even the simplest tasks. Here's an example: Say you want to look up a destination online and then send it to the TomTom. A simple click, you might think.
uncomfortable with the un-necessary routes it took us

Summary: We just completed a 4000 mile trip using the TomTom XL340S Live navigator and the OnStar in our car. We compared the two throughout the trip and found that the OnStar was completely reliable then the TomTom. The TomTom gave us good detail on most occasions but would at times take us off on a different route to some undesirable place that would eventual recalculate to get us back to our planned route, adding extra miles.
Summary: The TomTom was a gift for my wife. She recently traveled out of state and she did not care for this product at all. It caused a lot of frustration and tardiness. She used it four times and with the assistance of this product ended up lost twice in two different cities. The TomTom would direct her to turn left or exit left when there were no opportunities to do so.

Summary: TomTom offers a free trial of its Live cellular feature. In the week I owned this unit, I got Live to work half-a-dozen times, getting server connection and other error messages during most other attempts. TomTom's support was unhelpful in resolving the issue. Disappointingly, the Live feature does not work out of the box.
