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.
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.
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...
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.

The 'tap' screen is more of a 'poke sharply-and-hold' screen, and updates tend to be horror shows: s-l-o-w downloads,...
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.
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 …
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.
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.
