Item Works Ok but the cost of the map updates are outragious

Summary: I have had the unit for 6 months and I went to update maps and they are $20.00 per quarter or $89.00 a year. Desided to order a new Garmin with FREE lifetime maps. Purchased the 5 inch screen Garmin for $119.00 with FREE LIFETIME MAPS.
At least should have the advertising it wasn't upgrade after fabrication

Summary: The GPS wasn't upgrade, I'm always lost. My motive to buy it was cause relocation in a new and unknown place and it wasn't help me a lot because nobody explained that I had to upgrade later for almost $60 plus.
Summary: I bought this as a second unit to accompany the one I already had but without lifetime map updates and traffic because that is really useful in the rural area I live. The main problem is it also lacks other basic features including the ability to get a different route, I often know that the route chosen isn't the best because I have a basic knowledge of the area but unlike the Maps and Traffic unit, I can't ask for another route. I'd return if it I had that option.
Summary: A lot of there products including the tom tom XXL 550 will not do more then 3 stops at a time so if you are looking for a GPS for work do your home work contact Tom Tom they don't put it on there web sight.
Summary: Works as advertised; however, it could be better. I had has some problems getting it to do what I wanted. You can't conventionally plot your own course and when you take of an alternate course it keeps pestering you until you get far enough for it to figure out where you are going. When it is recommitting, I would love it if there was a mute button that would pop up for one to push!
Big screen, Easy to use. Simple...maybe too simple.

Summary: I have used various TomToms before as well as many other GPS units. This unit has a great screen. Big and easy to see. UNLESS you are getting sun on it. Screen gets washed out in sunlight. The menu is fairly easy to use and maneuver, perhaps a bit too easy for me. IQ routes are great. Nice to have that in calculating routes. Satellite lock is quick and solid. Big complaint I have is the mount.
