Summary: TomTom was good before. I had an old TomTom model which is still working perfectly. However, this new device is utterly unusable. Certain routes and locations are missing from the new TomTom, which is still available in my old TomTom device. I had bad experience using this new model.
Summary: I travel alot and with this product is simple to use. I find that I count on it not only for awesome directions but for estimating how much time I need to get there. I love using the voice that speaks the names of the road - so easy to find your turns...
Summary: we love tom, hes a great machine, we bought him with enough time before our big road trip to form a good working relationship, since this is a slightly older model we did an update, and hes very accurate now. he always knows where we are, how fast were going, and even gives us an ETA.
Summary: TomTom XXL 550TM 5-Inch Portable GPS Navigator (Lifetime Traffic and Maps Edition) Not User Friendly and the Instructions are the worst I Have ever seen, Absolutely no details. Once in the GPS it is very cumbersome to move to other screens. I would not recommemnd this to anyone.
Summary: This GPS worked great for a time, but I can't give it a good rating since it is useless after 18 months. Is that the life span of these things? We tried changing the battery, but it will not work unless it is plugged into a computer.
Never asked directions before, now I don't have to.

Summary: Wow, don't know how I went so long without this GPS before. My wife and I purchased this GPS after much research and review investigation. Liked the 5" screen, the lifetime map and traffic updates. We bought it for a trip to Illinois from Montana (1,300 mi. one way).
Summary: Seems to get you from A to B and the traffic is pretty good in ATL... Not so good in Canada. The maps are up to date and there is minimal issues like speed limit errors and such so always follow posted speed limits. I love the big size but I don't know about TomTom's mount.
Summary: I bought this TomTom XXL 550 TM 5 inch GPS from the Amazon Warehouse for $75.00. It's BRAND NEW !!!! Open box item, everything included, not a scratch or mark of any kind and even has the protective film on the screen along with the original box.
Summary: I read a few reviews on this unit before purchasing it. The few negative comments had to do with the user friendly menu. If you're really in to GPS units and you want 50 ways to do the same thing, maybe this isn't your unit.
