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.
"TomTom XXL 550 M doesn't support 2d direct. of travel."

Pros: Good reliable product at a good price, but this model is limited. I found the new software support to be exceptionally good.
Cons: I have a TomTom XXL 550 M. This is my second TomTom. In my older model I got used to using the 2d view in the direction of travel mode because that is most intuitive for me. This model does not have that mode and I don't like 3d mode. Stosh
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: I guess i am the first reviewer. Make sure to back up your GPS before updating, cos you will loose your TTS after updating it.Also this model does not give you Written Instruction after entered the destinations(Something likes turn left in 20ft, and then turn right in 40ft) and the POI sucks, it will only provide the phone number and location on the map. The reason i give this GPS 3 stars because it has big screen and quick response .
