Summary: I've owned two Tom Tom's. The map program is seriously lacking in updated information. Out of curiosity, I dug out my old Garmin from 2005. The map program with that 6 year old Garmin was more accurate than the brand new 2011 Tom Tom "latest" map downloaded from the Tom Tom website? My next GPS will be another Garmin! No more Tom Tom's for me.
Summary: the unit is to heavy for the suction mount,it bounces up and down when your in rough roads. tom tom should build a better mount. i like the big screen but mount kept me from keeping it. i brought it back it was 119$ when i bought now it its going for 132$ wow, i guest i'm the only one dissastisfied with the product.
Summary: Could not find a manual for this product on line. When I called TomTom about this I was told "we are a green company, and do not print manuals etc." What does "being green" have to do with putting a PDF file of the manual on the web site??? In fact, it would be "green" to make an electronic copy of the product manual available.
Summary: Some text to speech conversions hard to understand. The words on the screen are small and hard to read. The keyboard letters are too small requiring multiple re entries of the address. I have had another brand GPS in the past and found it to be more user friendly. The Tom Tom is a nice unit but, I would not recommend it.
Summary: I was looking for a simple way to guide through a city in a foreign country. This seemed easier than a map but the maps for this product were much too expensive. It has a nice size screen and directions were easy to follow. If you don't plan to take it with you to another country you will love this.
