  • Summary: I have owned and used the Tomtom for 6 months now and still love it. I was really surprised by all the negative comments, which is why I decided to write a review. I definitely agree with some of the complaints listed but my personal experience has been great! I did not own a gps until I bought my tomtom and only used google on my phone and my boyfriend's Magellan (2 years old) quite a bit prior to purchasing.

Great, Reliable GPS navigation

  • Summary: Been using it for two months now. Like the system a lot. Easy to understand, to follow while driving. Big screen is a plus. However, couldn't activate my "Lifetime Maps" service, maybe I need to call customer service. Otherwise, everything else works right. I like how if stuck in traffic, it gives you the option to recalculate and reroute your trip. The only downside is it doesn't accept gps coordinates.

Larger screen, good gps.

  • Summary: I have a TomTom GO 910, that still works great and got XXL 550TM< hoping for similar results. They are very different. Although GO 910 is much older, it still faster, and the menu was easier to user then the new model. I guess with larger screen, lighter and new technology, it still cannot match with some old gps. There are new improvements on the new model. The suction that was a concern for some people, did not happen to me.

XXL 550 TM

  • Summary: Just bought this a few weeks ago, so far it has worked like advertised. I like the user map corrections, and the lifetime traffic and maps. Set up was easy, downloaded new maps through TomTom at home with no issues, first update did take around half an hour to complete. Also has other options that are free to download, safety alerts which alerts you of traffic cams. User interface is simple and uncluttered yet there are still various options.

Great Nav System

  • Summary: The tomtom came with lifetime map updates and traffic. The traffic works well and routes me around backups. I just wish it was a little faster on the re-routing and routing.

  • Summary: I am a retiree from a career of 30 years. I decided that I wanted to continue to be active and chose to drive a charter tour bus with a local company as a new challenge. The Tom Tom GPS has proven invaluable as a navigational aid and I particularily like the presentation of useful information on the primary screen without having to be distracted to search for said information. Great product!!
