I am glad that TomTom discontinued this model

S. Nasseri "Sherry", Amazon
2 November 2014
  • Summary: I am glad that TomTom discontinued this model. Because of its low memory, one has to store away its current map North America, for example, for the maps of Europe, and that takesmany hours-- I mean it takes over 12 hours! Once you have the map loaded it works fine.

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,...

Complex, difficult to use and lacks a user interface that is intuitive.

blueghost27, Ebay

  • Summary: This device is way more complicated that it needs to be. The user interface is much to complex for use during any type of driving (not that you should be). It requires several clicks deep to make simple inquires of location and desired destinations.

Updated maps don't fit. Stay away!!

Joe NYC, Amazon
1 February 2011
  • Summary: If you plan on using the device as is, then you're probably going to be OK. Once you attempt to update the included maps, then your problems begin. The memory on the device is 3.8GB, but the updates would take up 2.6GB for the Europe maps and 1.7GB for USA.

ONLY speaks one turn, not the next one. BIG weakness

Steven I. Ramm "Steve Ramm "Anything Phon..., Amazon
13 December 2010
  • Summary: I did a lot of research on affordable GPS units before the Black Friday sales. This was my first GPS. The Tom Tom seemed to be the one with best reviews and I found this model on a BF sale for about $79.00 on Amazon so I ordered it.

Very disappointed

techie geek "Larry Elliott", Amazon
27 October 2010
  • Summary: After doing much research on GPS devices, I settled on this model of TomTom for my wife. She was going to Germany on business and had to rent a car to get to her various places. There was no problem with delivery from Amazon and we tried it out in Colorado with good results.

TOMTOM shows no love

G. Dunn "GAD", Amazon
8 September 2010
  • Summary: I have a Garmin nüvi 255W, works fantastic, but it has a 4.3" screen and I have ended up in the wrong lane several times on big interchanges so the TOMTOM with the 5.0" screen and advanced lane guidance sounded really good and as the deal of the day for $89 how could you go wrong.

TomTom XXL 540S WTE is barely decent GPS - but map update policy a ripoff

Ziontrain, Amazon
11 August 2010
  • Summary: The TomTom XXL 540S World Traveller Edition is a decent but far from stellar GPS unit. THE GOOD The screen is a good big size, the details on the display are nice, the sound is clear. I also like the lane guidance feature and the customizable POIs on the screen. Those are the good things....

Good GPS, but bad map

OneBox, Amazon
20 July 2010
  • Summary: This is my first Tomtom. I own a Garmin GPS which I bought a few years ago. What I like about this device: 1. Good GPS reception. The device shows 4 or 5 satellites even inside my home. My old Garmin would lose satellite reception when driving on side roads with a lot of trees. 2. Large screen.
