Summary: This device came looking as if it were a refurb, no plastic wrap and the tape holding the box closed appeared to be a re-tape job. It looked so suspicious that I opened the box to ensure that everything is in the box.
Summary: The display is too bright at night even when turned all the way down. I mainly bought it for trips from Ga. to Tampa, I wanted to be able to find all the back road turns at night. This IQ Routes is garbage, I have driven several routes and found the best, but Tom Tom won't even consider that route.
Summary: This unit was rooted and loaded with an unsupportable bios/firmware relative to Hardware - unsupportable in Tom Tom Home so can't be updated or corrected in any way. Don't buy unless you need a disposable unit.
Summary: bought this tomtom to replace one that died(white screen).this one would never function,no help from tomtom or business solutions(mother company).tomtom gps's are pretty much disposible units.going to buy garmin,better reviews and longevity.
Summary: Right out of the box, I run the Tomtom Home 2 installation from the setup file in the gps. Error message, but it started anyhow. After that, the American map update cannot be updated. Read thru some forums and managed to do it after removing the original American map loaded with the unit.
Summary: I selected the XXL 550TM specifically for its lifetime map and traffic updates; if there's one thing I hate, it's being nickel and dimed to death to keep a map current. Setup was quick and easy, and I was using the unit within minutes of opening the box.
