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.

  • 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.
