  • A. Traffic receiver 12v cig lighter plug, free 1 yr gas subscription, road side assist 20 percent off coupon, tomtom start 50tm gps module with user manual installed on the unit dock to access. Lifetime map update card with pin for activation after dock with PC, and downloading a free version of tomtom home software for your PC. Maps of the USA, Canada, Mexico and Puerto Rico. Unlimited traffic included on the traffic receiver cord, no need to install, nor call tomtom USA for assistance good to go out of the box. Though this device does not consist of live updates. Tom-tom go live is necessary for this purpose. I:E: if you want updates on the fly get the TomTomgoLive instead of this device. Though note if you do so you will have to pay monthly for traffic updates. Much better to update via laptop on the fly with this unit.

  • A. This unit comes with a USB cable to draw power from your computer and a automobile power cord. The display is 5 inches. The battery is internal, already installed in the sealed GPS. The automobile mount is an EasyPort, which is a suction cup for your windshield that locks in position. "TM" in the model name means lifetime updates for Traffic and Maps (you receive quarterly updates by going online and downloading, takes about 2 hours). The unit speaks instructions and provides lane assistance.

I purchased this GPS on Friday and returned it on Sunday but used it for many hours during that time. The unit is easy to use though getting it in and out of the suction-cup windshield mount can be frustrating (but seemed to be easier with time). Display is bright and clear with large, easy to read touch-screen buttons and street names you won't have to squint at. It does NOT speak street names aloud. Its volume is easily adjustable and will automatically raise the volume if you are going fast to compensate for road noise, if you want that setting. I thought that was cool. It automatically routes the fastest route and you have the option to reroute to see other options, which I found very helpful. If you take a wrong turn or choose to go off course, the START quickly recalculates the route (it does not announce it is doing so, just redirects you). I liked the START just fine until I realized that the TomTom did NOT allow for itinerary planning (waypoints) which is what being TomTom was supposed to be about. I used it for a route with many stops all over the state. I had to enter all the addresses I would be going to as 'favorites' so I could get my route quickly without having to type it all in while in the car in unfamiliar territory. Annoying but worked very well otherwise. I would consider this unit for my husband or son in the future but need an itinerary for myself and am therefore going with a Garmin.

This is the best buy in town. 5 inch screen and has the traffic updates which is an excellent feature and a lot of the much more expensive ones don't have this feature. Extensive lane change feature too.

The person at the counter was the WORST! Didnt know "anything about the maps" and was not happy we had a question. Getting it home, we found that the lifetime maps feature had to be called in after following the online instructions for an hour (the instruction manual was not for the "WalMart models" even though the BOX says Free lifetime traffic/maps updates) I didnt even find out I had to call from Walmart - I had to search online to find that info. Buy your GPS from someone that can answer the most basic questions regarding them.

I will never buy a TomTom ever again!! This GPS shows roads that do not exist, street and road names were incorrect, some address would not even work on it and I entered the address to a hospital and it took me to a gas station over a mile away. I am a volunteer firefighter/first responder and I purchased it to help find fire and car accident scenes. For the price, I would not take it if it were free.

Overall good with a number of upgrades from my old Tom Tom. I expected some other functions, but I guess I didn't read correctly. I still am very happy with it.

This is the second tom tom I have purchased. I bought another one because I saw it had a lifetime map updates which is worth the price. However, I was disappointed that when I went to pick up my purchase it was $5.00 cheaper in the store. I also had to drive 25 miles to the next walmart in another town because online said it was not available in the walmart in the town I live in. However, I had to stop at that Walmart for another person before I went to the other town and that's when I saw they did have it in the store and it was cheaper. I went ahead on to to other town because I had already ordered online and I wanted it for the next day. But that was a bummer that I couldn't understand

I purchased this to replace a garmin unit that I had. I borrowed a tomtom from my daughter while I was waiting for this to get shipped to the store for pickup. If I had borrowed her tomtom first I never would have bought one for myself. I run service work and work the night shift where house addresses are hard to find. The tomtom does show you which side of the street is on but you really have to look closely at the map to see because it shows the checkered flag over the arrow pointing to the side of the road your location is on. I much prefer the garmin that not only keeps the entire address you are looking for at the top of the screen, but it also shows which side of the street it is on. (ex. 1122 Main St. on left.) I know the spoken directions will also tell you but I find that to be too annoying (even on the garmin) to constantly tell you of every turn 2 or 3 times so I mute the volume and rely on the map. I did like the tomtoms feature of showing locations of red light cameras and school zones and I wish garmin had that. In all fairness to tomtom, I had 2 garmins before and I was used to how they worked and it is different from the tomtoms. Im sure the tomtom is a good unit, I never had an operational problem with the one I borrowed and it was 3 years old. I did return the tomtom before I even opened it and purchased a garmin but the real reason I did that was that garmin offers FREE lifetime map updates where tomtom does charge for them. I do not know how much tomtom charges but it was more than free!
