Summary: It will help around large cities, which is what I bought it for. These devices aren't the best thing out in the country as they go by Google maps and will route you over roads that on paper look to be the closest way but which in reality are sometimes impassable. Not this particular device only, but all of these devices that have to be manually updated.
The TomTom XL 340T is super nice! We love it, Great value for the Money!

Summary: We love this Tom Tom! We went on a weekend trip and used it right away. It was easy to put in were we was going and it worked perfect. Thank you, thank you! We plan to use it in January when we go to Florida. Again thank you!
Summary: The GPS will definately get you there and back, however a couple of things, the charge light is directly on the bottom of the unit, no way can you see it looking straight into the screen, there is a light in the 12 volt cable plug. I thought the mount was flimsey, but havent had any problems with it so far. It has good volume and seems easy to use, I would recomend this product.
Summary: This is our 3rd unit. We loned one to friends and then the one we kept, quit working. So we needed to replace it. The TomTom is just so easy to work with and even though I have Garmin mobile on my computer, its just easier to use the TomTom while traveling. I would highly recommend this product. The price point is very reasonable too.
Summary: Does a great job for the price that I paid; the live map updates is a great feature. I don't see why you would need to get anything more advanced than this. Bought this last minute as the car rental Satnav hire would have almost been the seem amount.
Simply Horrible - inaccurate directions, bad touchscreen, worthless traffic

Summary: The TomTom XL 340T is one of the WORST pieces of technology I have ever purchased - and as a 30 year old man, I have bought my share of tech toys. I returned the TomTom after 10 days, bought a Garmin at similar price and am now very happy with the Garmin (more on that below). Problems with the TomTom XL 340T: 1) Most significantly, the touch screen sensitivity was inaccurate. It either was too sensitive (which resulted in double-taps) or not sensitive enough (i.e.
Summary: Upon first receiving the unit I ran into a number of issues as mentioned below. I'm going to update each issue below IF & when it's resolved. I will acknowledge this is my first experience with a GPS. I read the weak owner's manual twice before turning the unit on. I consider my self very pc literate, I own & operate an internet business & have for many years. Before writing this, I also called a friend who's owned a different Tom Tom model for quite awhile.
