Summary: Bought this as a gift. The directions were a little outdated. I had to buy an upgrade and install new software for it to be accurate. Would of been better to buy a newer model in the first place. works great and is till going strong after several years.
Its a good enough value for the money. You get what you pay for.

Summary: I bought this because the power connectors on both of my Garmin's failed from over use. Dislike; the TomTom Language interpretation is poor. Doesn't pronounce street names correctly. Pronounces the number "0" as "west" as in freeway 101 is said " Freeway one west one". I rely on the vocal cues since I am trying to keep my eyes on the road. Also does not give sufficient warning before making turns.
Pros: Reliable - I have had it just over a year now and it has not failed, nor has it failed to provide a reasonable route (maybe not the best, but reasonable). Cost/Value - $119 with traffic avoidance and lifetime map updates. Traffic avoidance has saved me se
Cons: Documentation - Out of the box I followed the on-screen instructions and connected it up to a PC..And promptly hosed it...Tech support eventually had me re-format it and re-install it, and update the map DB. It just boggles that following their on-screen
Summary: I want to get a GPS for my uncle, he's just come to the U.S.A. He got lost all the time, so this is the best solution for him (and also the best price). But there is only thing that I'm really concerned about is the map update (this refurbished item offered one-time-update-only). anyway, it is good!
Summary: This gps es partially good because in Puerto Rico they are a lot of places that the gps do not have integrated in the map. Also sometimes I had trouble to locate a place bacause they do not appear with the same name. The street of my home is Rio Bairoa and according to the GPS is Rio Lopez, it has certain maps errors.
Cons: Say you need to rush to the nearest hospital. Unless I'm nuts, the TomTom I just returned did this when I clicked Help > Drive to Help > Nearest hospital produces a sloppy looking list (beginning in lower case, etc.) of every medical listing the yel

Pros: Is good at getting you from one place to another. Directions are clear. Good at redirecting if you miss a turn or decide to go a different way than it originally routed you.
Cons: Incorrectly pronounces street names, making them unrecognizable. Tells you you have reached your destination without giving you the street address, so you have no idea which of the buildings on the block are the one you're going to..
Summary: When entering in letters and numbers on touch screen, there are continual errors in wrong numbers/letters or they are doubled and even tripled. I have to reenter and reenter letters/numbers by readjusting my finger placement, it takes a few attempts. The price was right, however, I use it all day long in my career and wished I bought a Garmin.
Summary: I bought a TomTom One, years ago. It was the base model, 4" screen(?), didn't even say the street names, and I absolutely loved it. It was very fast, accurate, and dirt simple to use. It finally quit getting a signal, so I thought I'd upgrade to the XL-340. This model is sluggish in every way. Takes too long to get a signal, and since there isn't a screensaver built in like the TomTom One had, you can't leave it on. Updates and directions lag just enough to be annoying.
