Love my TOM TOM, I own two. The live traffic is great in the cities for routing around trouble.
Word of warning, when you update for the first time you have a code that comes in the box, DO NOT through it away. I lost my info and now my maps to not update unless I pay. Also if you register more than one TOM TOM, each needs its own email address. I never travel without it!
Gave this as an early Christmas present to my daughter in law. She had never used one before so I was kind of worried. When her and my grand daughter went on their trip she used it for every thing. She easily found her destination as well as gas stations and restaurants. Every thing was very easy to use.
Easy to register. Speaks much clearer than my 8 year old magellan. Gives much more detail for turns.Free maps are good but seams like I am always upgrading the syatem. Icon appears on computer when update is ready. This GPS is great for the average traveler.
I just received the GPS a day ago. I previously had a GARMIN NUVI and it recognized the touch screen half of the time, and the cable was in a horrible spot which ultimately caused it to stop working due to the cable being bent against the dashboard. This tomtom has the cable up top and aiming to the right direction.
The touch screen is very sensitive which makes it easy to type the address.
The lifetime map updates can only be used 4 times a year, which is a little disappointing but not a big deal.
I searched one of my favorite destinations and it actually found it, instead of having to drive to it and the save the spot on my garmin. Note: The first time you update the gps, it takes about 5 minutes to download the update but 40 minutes to update the actual gps. Even though that is a long time, this is my third GPS and they are all slow when it comes to updating. On the other side, the update was rather simple to get and even a non computer savvy person should be able to do it
I thought this was an excellent value, except it was sold out when I tried to make this purchase. I own this same device and recommend it to anyone that needs an easy GPS.
I have owned a tom tom for 8 yrs-but an older version. After purchasing this one-I never knew it could be so fun going places. I really like the big screen and the split screen feature come up upon exits so you never have to touch the device while driving. When you turn on your car-the device turns on (if you have it plugged in). Having to get used to removing the suction cup (nonremoveable from device) and device each exit- I really like this model.
This was an online special. We have used it twice in areas we frequent often. It consistently takes a longer or out of the way route. It is not accurate. Could not recommend it to anyone. We are considering returning it.
At first I thought this used a (separate) mounting bracket to secure this device to the windshield (I should have read the details better I guess), however I do like that the mounting system is built in to the device itself. It makes installation extremely easy.
(just press the GPS device's suction cup against the windshield, then turn the knob on the back of the suction cup until it "clicks")
This is very easy to use, and the information is easy to read. The only thing I wish this had would be to include Bluetooth (so the instructions could play over most radios).
The only thing I don't like about it is that you cannot "unclick" the GPS and leave the mount when you don't want to leave the GPS on the windshield---you have to remove suction-cup and all. That said, this thing is a really good value for the money, large screen with lots of settings to customize it the way you like it. You can leave set it for the standard single-screen display or set it to go to a split-screen when you hit major intersections on the Interstate. With split-screen, you get the standard display on the left half and on the right half, your path and the lane(s) you should take are clearly marked in orange arrows. I'm planning to drive from KY to SC in a couple of weeks and this will be a great help in navigating a 10-hour drive. Power-cord is a USB end with a cigarette-lighter device you can plug into, so I like the option to choose between the two. I'm very pleased with this product.
It was charged when I bought it. I do like the programing.Power soon ran out and could not charge it as the cord did not fit the plug in and could not charge it again.The store did not have one for exchange. I am not pleased.
two and one half hours on the phone then 9and half hours downloading updates not happy
The TOM TOM is superior to the Garmin that I have used. The voice does not say "recalculating" but waits and tells you how to correctly continue. The "integrated" window attachment is a bit cumbersome and the instructions are not new user friendly. But overall I like it and Walmart offers superior value over Amazon.
i have not used it much, but it is very easy to use and the traffic warnings are quite good
The lifetime updates apparently only allow one update. We updated our maps once and since then the website will not update the maps without asking us to buy the maps.
This is the worst GPS I have ever owned! It constantly loses signal and the arrow that represents my truck is never on the road, it always shows me as driving way off in the grass! Ive called TomTom twice and they have updated it twice with no success. DO NOT BUY THIS JUNK. Going back to walmart
Description states "Covers North America". However, this unit as received only covered the U.S. As I drive to Canada occasionally, this was an important criteria for me. Item was returned.
I would recommend this product to everyone of all ages . Even the techno declined . We love it. TomTom will not let you speed or get lost. Also lets you know when a gas station is coming up and lets you know if the station is a Shell or any other one. We are very happy with our product and the services of Wal-Mart. Thank you!
Large screen is wonderful. Options are excellent. All expectations we're meet.
Had very bad experience using TOM Tom web site. First could not find user manual. continued downloading the maps anyway. but could not figure out whether it did or not. After spending 5-6 hours the unit completely froze and just showed Tom Tom logo and will not go back to starter page no matter how my times I turned it on and off Had to return the unit and this is my last TOM tOM purchase I will ever do.
I used Garmin and Magellan for many years in our 4 vehicles. But I noticed that there were tracking errors in the Garmin. I also found that the mileage indicator did not adjust as you got near your destination in text mode with the Garmin. Out of frustration, I purchased this TomTom and am I glad I did. It offers far more features than the Garmin. It also costs less (better value) and the mileage indicator works properly. I can wholeheartedly recommend this TomTom
