Excerpt: We bought this Satnav about a year and a half ago, prior to a long journey down the M6, as it was the first "long" drive that I had ever done and was a bit terrified, quite frankly! The cost back then was £110, but back then it was probably about right to be honest for this Satnav (i expect it is a lot cheaper now!) The best thing about this Satnav is the overly large screen.
Pros: "Volume change with car speed function", "Lane directions", "Large screen"
Cons: "Suction pad often comes apart/looses grip.", "Screen can be a little unresponsive", "Map updates are expensive!"
TomTom XXL IQ Routes Europe - GPS receiver - automotive - 5" - widescreen
17 March 2014
Summary: Supplier sent the wrong model at first, After delay sent the right one. I had to contact Tom Tom several times to get the right software on, They were most helpful and supplied the correct Europe Map, gave me perpetual map updates and also the digital voice facility, which is essential for announcements of road names. I find this model slow to update (can take hours) and site changes by TomTom disconcerting.
Excerpt: I'm not sure why I ended up buying a satnav as I work not far from home and rarely travel around England. I think it was just one of those car purchases I thought I better have! The TomTom XXL is a classic in satnav technology. For anyone who doesn't know what a satnav is let me be very brief. It's a satellite navigation system, you stick the little screen on your car windscreen, easy facing you in the driving seat.
Summary: This is my favourite gadget - took it around the wilds of Andalucia a few days after purchase and it didn't put a foot (wheel?!) wrong! Clear concise instructions both on the screen and orally (wrong word I know but can't think of right one to use!!) - I take it everywhere now!
