Summary: The display is very large and easy to see, even in broad daylight. The software is intuitive and fairly straightforward. Though the touchscreen seems less responsive to those that own a smartphone or tablet, it does the job. My only complaint is that we periodically have to buy updates. This is not unique to this make and model but when taken into context with cellphone software that is also good and usually offers updates for life, this is a major drawback.
Summary: This reminds me of my cell phone. I fought for the longest time against it as I did not need it. When I finally did get it I found I couldn't live without it.This item is not only a convenience and a essential road aid it is a downright safety device. You could still navigate the old way like I used to do, but why would you?
I love my Tom Tom, Have had one for years now, the Cust service is Great

Summary: I have had a Tom Tom for about 5 years now, this is my second one, my first one lasted 4 years until I dropped it out the RV door,( Oop's) I'm nearly full time in my RV and trying to find some RV parks is a Pain, I have also met many other RV'ers who have other brands, I have found that the Tom Tom brand is the best, very simple, very good...The cust.
Summary: This is my second TomTom and enjoy to map interface. This TomTom has a new feature for me of traffic alert. I has saved time already by re-routing my travel and keeping me from waiting in traffic for long. Once a person learns all the programs this device becomes very useful.
All the best features you can ask for on a TomTom gps..

Summary: This is my second tom tom gps, and it (TOMTOMxxl 540t) is even better than my first (TOMTOMxlone). Everything about it is positive. Larger screen, louder speaker, fun to use, it has IQrouts, Traffic, and my favorite on point lane guidance, which lets you know ahead of time what lane to be in. Overall I give it 5 out of 5..I recommend this gps all the way.
Summary: Exactly as expected. Gave 4 stars on Ease of use because we also own a 550, and it has better menus (but was more expensive.) Very good product. We pull a 40' horse trailer, and the lane guidance is extremely helpful. Highly recommend.
