Timesaver in Europe!

L. Allen, Amazon
21 July 2013
  • 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.

Great GPS ... awesome 5" screen

Amazon Customer, Amazon
22 April 2013
  • Summary: OK ... OK So if you have a smartphone, you don't really need one of these any more. But my 87 year old Dad doesn't have a smartphone, and we got this for him. He really does like it, and the screen is awesome. It's large, bright, easy to read, and very clear.

Can 700+ one and two star reviews be wrong?

S.A. "bham", Amazon
12 April 2013
  • 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...

good gps

Pablo A. Campos, Amazon
13 November 2012
  • Summary: Hello - this is my families first GPS. I did a lot of research comparing size, features, different models etc and this is the one I felt met all my expectations. I gave this a 4/5 because there are times it takes a long time to get a satellite reception.

Junky Power Cord

p0sseman, shopping.com
8 September 2012
  • Summary: Would not buy any TomTom again because of the lousy power cord with the integrated traffic receiver. When the power part fails, the traffic receiver stops working.
  • Pros: most of the maps are right on and TomTom provides a method for submitting corrections.
  • Cons: TomTom did not recognize that a road designated FR means Forest Road or Fire Road

Absuurdly bad update procrdure, Somewhat Clunky user interface

S. M. Harris, Amazon
14 August 2012
  • Summary: The TomTom XXL 540S navigates well on most trips, although it has led me to a literal dead-end more than once. But the real problem is the clunky software and user interface. The 'tap' screen is more of a 'poke sharply-and-hold' screen, and updates tend to be horror shows: s-l-o-w downloads,...

So Far, So Good...

Pickles_175, Amazon
20 January 2012
  • Summary: First off, you can start using this right out of the box without the updates and it works really well. Be prepared, however, when you do decide to register and update the GPS, expect to spend anywhere up to 45 minutes doing it depending on your connection/network speeds, etc.

TomTom XXL540S GPS

MisterTickle, ReviewStream
15 December 2011
  • Excerpt: The TomTom XXL540S GPS is a decent car GPS. I got it mainly because it was on sale at $59.99. This is the refurbished model. It isn’t new, but it is like new. To me, paying sixty bucks for a GPS is still a good deal. I usually do …

Big & accessable

Thomas Bangash, Amazon
15 December 2011
  • Summary: A new edition to Ma Hon's Altima. Compared to the 3.5" unit that Hon was using previously, this is a great update. It is much easier to operate on the move, plus the mapping is more up to date, giving more accurate routing from point a to point b.

Buyer Beware

David Nieves, Amazon
5 December 2011
  • Summary: Have tested 3 of these units. The second and third being replacements for the first which was defective. All three units could not retain a consistent GPS signal after extensive testing. Lots of time with Tom Tom support.
