Summary: I bought this one to replace my TomTom XL 335TM (Lifetime Traffic and Maps) that was stolen from my car a couple months ago. It was first hard to get my hands on it, because of a shipping problem and Amazon's weird policy on reimbursing unreceived items but I finally got it! The unit works just fine: it tells me where to go, how long it takes, it updates the route if there's traffic.
There is some VERY IMPORTANT info missing when you are shopping this product that would have changed my mind.

Summary: The unit functions perfectly and is very reliable. However, on the Amazon page it clearly tells you the unit will come with lifetime updates. Unfortunately these updates are ONLY available to owners of Windows-based PC units and not to owners of Apple/Mac computers. No where on the Amazon page did it tell me that I would not be able to update the maps or information on the unit through out it's lifetime. I would have not purchased it if I had known this.
Summary: I bought this for myself for Christmas last year. The screen is a decent size without obsuring the view of the windscreen. The picture is bright, except when the sun is directly on the screen. The instructions are clear (better than my wife's, anyway) so I'm happy. I'll probably be getting a similar one formy wife's car since her Garmin doesn't work as well.
As a new person in this area, this is just SUPERB!

Summary: I know sometimes GPS can be annoying, and it does bring you through longest route! However, I enjoy using this model, big clear screen, many choices and even have fun setting it. The best thing: It does NOT annoy you with that irritating "Recalculating' voice...it quietly change its route and lead you back to your destination!
Summary: i bought this tomtom on 8/4/2010. on 8/17/2011 i took off for a 5 day road trip. about an hour into the trip the tomtom would no longer accept a charge. though the power cord was plugged in i kept getting a dead battery screen and it would die. i tried to wiggle things and get it going again to no avail. not a good thing when you're depending on it for your vacation. when i got home, i looked up the warranty and, of course, it is only for 12 months.
Summary: I love this GPS! When I bought it I was looking to upgrade my Magellan. I would recommend TomTom any day! I really like the way that I have the option to change the maps and the voices. I really love the fact that I can change the maps for FREE on TomTom home! Right now, my maps are pink :). I also love the feature it has where changes to night time view when it is dark (and keeps the pink maps).
