Reliable unit just be carefull during updates

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this unit for my wife a year ago and can say that it is a very reliable unit. It has made my wife much more confidant in her travels around Phoenix. However, I have had to return this unit twice at my own cost, attempting to upgrade the maps and POI using the latest version of the TOMTOM Home application, each time I attempted to update the maps, the software scrambled the units memory so bad it had to be sent back.

There has been an error

  • Summary: First, and this is important: If you have this device, do not permit TomTom Home (a computer program) to 'update' your maps until after it has 'activated' your GPS. TomTom Home may run into problems processing your activation code until after you update the "TomTom Application for TomTom XL and TomTom XXL." That's OK... let it update that, but decline to allow it to update your maps until *after* it has successfully activated your GPS.

TomTom XXL It's Ok.

2 December 2010
  • Summary: Having a Garmin Nuvi660 for years I was excited about upgrading to the TomTom after hearing great things about them. Well, it has been a love hate experience with me and my new XXL 550. Pros: Big screen Ability to change screen layout, colors and how things are displayed Lifetime traffic and map upgrades IQ navigation works well Asks if I want to use toll roads before planning route Cons: Window mounting bracket and lack of ability to micro-adjust placement User...
