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: 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.
Summary: The unit is fine, maybe needs a larger memory, I had to save the U.S. map to my computer in order to get the newest European map from Tom Tom. Having said this it really is not that large a problem to save the European map to my computer and put the newest U.S. back into it. I had the unit ready to go when I got my rental car in Europe and it preformed better than the Garvin units I have rented in the past from the rental agency.
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. I will be in a city with my sun roof open and it still will take awhile to connect. It happens very infrequently though.
Summary: My TomTom GPS work wonderfully. It shows us and tells us exactly where to go. There's a map with our car on it and you can see just where the car is going and where it should go. Other markings tell us how many miles we'll be on that road and which way it turns next. If I make a mistake and take a wrong turn, she (the voice) doesn't even get mad (like my wife does), she just says, "You're going to turn around when you can...
Summary: My Tom Tom XXL 54OS is now one year old and I'am as happy today with it as I was one year ago. I highly recommend it to anyone and I was very pleased with seller and amazon.com. A returned customer and a happy one. All of reviews helped me make up my mind. Sometimes Iwas overwhelmed at the amount of reviews but I kept compairing them and finally made up my mind.
Summary: Tom Tom helped us in our first driving journey through United States. Without it we would be totally lost in NY. The lane advisory is a great help while driving through the unfamiliar neighborhood.
