Summary: I have traveled extensively by car in Europe, and this summer I was determined to forgo trying to navigate with maps, and found the TomTom XXL 540S World Traveler GPS. It suited our needs because it was preloaded with maps of Europe, and I have never used a GPS there before now. The TomTom did not disappoint; I bought ours via Amazon Warehouse Deals and got a brand new one, albeit sans box and instructions, for nearly half-price.
Summary: Thank God that I got this as a gift. This is the worst GPS User interface I used, and I used many due to my continues traveling.
Pros: Accurate Maps, quick start (locates satellites quickly)
Cons: worst Interface, need to press hard on screen., one mistake and you will have to rewrite everything again., for some reason, every time I try to save my home location, it change to an older home location.

Summary: I have been a long time Garmin user (I have had a variety of Garmins over the years, and they have had a variety of issues, from the dreaded white screen of death, to smaller annoyances, such as being unable to locate satellites under a clear blue sky, to ridiculous interface issues, such as having to know the EXACT spelling of a destination THE WAY IT IS IN THEIR SYSTEM, such as E. Maple Road vs. East Maple Road).
Summary: Bought this for a motor trip through the northern half of GB. The ONLY complaint was that it didn't show recent construction detours when entering Glasgow; however, reasonable guesses by the driver as to the correct course and the auto-correct feature [drive PAST the local construction before consulting the new course!] saw us through. That aside, it even showed us what lane to be in as we approached exits and roundabouts.
