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... I would highly recommend this product to anyone...
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.
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). It worked flawlessly except for one city where it took us one block out of our way, but it self corrected the mistake.
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. Otherwise Tomtom support is awesome and they helped me with setup and such. I think I got a pretty got thing goign here with this unit.
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. Has the verification code to enable the life time maps which I've already enabled and registered. Works great.
Summary: I got mine over the holidays for $130 and free overnight shipping. It's my first GPS but everyone keeps telling me what a great deal I got. It also came with $10 credit at the TomTom store that I used for the Darth Vader voice. The store also has a ton of free voices that are hilarious and add some much needed humor to long road trips. 19 out of 20 times, the GPS has gotten me places just fine.
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. If you want to type in some info like an address or point of interest then this thing really does the job. It's fairly accurate, when it says you are at a cross street, you are pretty much there and not 50 feet away.
Summary: This is my second TomTom, this unit is so far advanced there is nothing to do except plug it in. after a simple setup it runs on auto this is a great tool to assist you while driving. I would like to express my thanks to Amazon for their wonderful customer service. When I first purchased the TomTom what I received was not what I expected.
Summary: Reviews of GPS units tend to be all over the place. After much searching I purchased the TomTom XXL550TM. This gives lifetime map and traffic updates for no added fees or annual contracts. I am very pleased with the unit after having it for 2 weeks. The screen is nice and bright and changes from day to night views automatically. You are provided a ton of information on the screen.
