Summary: When it's working properly, this is a lovely GPS to have. But this is my second Tom Tom with lifetime traffic, and the second one to have lifetime traffic disappear. Really disappointing, since I got this unit particularly because of the traffic feature.
Great GPS for the $$$---customer service not so great.

Summary: Good GPS. Simply to use, nice display, and for a computer generated voice I don't mind the "directions". Not impressed with the customer service,,, all they want to do is to refer you to most frequent asked questions. When you can in the "customer service" person wants to sell u an upgrade.
Summary: This is the 2nd one we've had. The first worked fine for many years until the touch screen shifted too far to be able to select anything on the bottom of the screen (like "Done"). We bought a fancier model, a GO 2535TM, that worked intermittently and then totally crashed when we were on a trip.
there might be other better gps available but tomtoms are good enough for me. have 6 of them for 4 family members

Summary: Pros: i bought 6 tomtom gps (6 family members) because they are the best based on my opinion. i am in charged of activation and updating maps all of the gps. The first one was quite confusing to activate and to update maps but completed the process by talking to a wonderful tech lady.
Summary: I got this for my wife and she loves it. Especially the real time traffic updates. She uses it more for the traffic updates than she does for navigation. I would rate the useability of the Tom Tom nav system higher than the built in Nav system in my car. A satisfying purchase overall.
Summary: TomTom sells many other GPS unts without lifetime maps. I have one of those too. Don't do that. The maps are way more than the unit if you do. Buy an old unit like this one cheap and download the maps when they change. 4 stars becaous the download takes hours!!
Summary: I was very excited about receiving my new TomTom XL350TM and as I was going through the menu I found out they have left out so many things that my XL340S had. I liked when you turned on the TomTom it went right to your location. The XL350TM goes to a menu screen that you have to close.
