Summary: I got the device for a good price but it hasn't been very durable. I've had it almost a year. First the power cord went out. I called and they were very helpful. The mailed me one right away. When it arrived however, it was the suction cup mounting bracket. So, I called back.
Summary: They do not tell you that you need to purchase the optional RDS-TMC Traffic Receiver to be able to use the traffic update function. Otherwise Tom-Tom's are great GPS. I had a Magellan and it was so hard to update. You had to download a file and then use a DOS program to update it.
Summary: Have had the TomTom XXL 540T since Thanksgiving. Basically, now realize I wasted $100 on a GPS which may or may not work. The first trial run from mid Long Island into Manhattan was total negative. During the entire one hour ride the GPS was looking for satellites and did not navigate one inch.
Summary: I had traffic updates for about 2 weeks - had the traffic scroll line on right side of the GPS - now all gone...went to the computer and it seems I need a special traffic reciever. Was that suppose to be in the box? And my TomTom does not announce street names.
Summary: I purchased this GPS in June. In general, I would say that it works as expected. I can program a point to navigate to and it gets me there. Cons: 1. I would not bother with the traffic option. The traffic receiver does come in the box. It works but it hasn't really helped me yet.
Summary: I've never had a GPS with traffic updates, so I don't know exactly what to expect, but three times, on interstates, we've come to a construction standstill for up to a 45 minute delay. The GPS, during and before this time, appeared to be updating, or receiving data, but unable to give us any.
Summary: Overall this is a very nice GPS. I decided to get my free map update after owning this GPS for less than 30 days. I don't know whether it was Tom Tom of my DSL provider but it took 8 hours to do the update the the latest and greatest map.
Summary: This is my first Tom Tom navigator. I like the fact that you get updated maps every time up hook up to the computer. It's also really cool how you can add road information and upload so others can benefit. Here's my problem with this navigator. Two times it has not sent me to the correct location.
Summary: There are some nice features on the TomTom that Garmin just emulated. Lane view different and more informative map views current speed versus posted limit with alarms for going 5 over And a few more. What I don't like: Erroneous routing Several times I was driving in circles.
