Have used this both locally (in town) and for multi state travel. Unit worked well in all applications, Only complaint I would have, would be the incorrect map information that exists. I cannot seem to submit the necessary changes to TOMTOM to correct bad map data. Such as, a street where no street exists. Over all I am well pleased with the performance of the unit and would recommend it.

A great GPS system. I checked reviews of many GPS devices before purchasing this one. It is simple to use and has some excellent features that some of the builtin systems in expensive cars do not have. The only short coming I found was the lack of a 110 charger.

Bought a new car without the GPS because the one in the car sent me in wrong directions too many times to be worth spending any more money on another So I bought this and wow its great on directions and easy to use

For the money this is a great GPS device. It has helped me already find my way to where i needed. It needs to be outside to find the satellites. A lesson i learned is to carry the car adapter with you for the battery lasts about an hour or two.

This is a clean easy to hear and work unit. I purchased it for our extra car and the family car that doesn't have a built in. Although you can use the gps's that are on the phone, I like the visual feature of the Tom tom and it's bigger than a 2inch phone screen that you have to figure out where to place the phone.

This is my second TomTom Gps. Just last week we took a vacation to Wrightsville Beach NC. My new XL340, was clear, and concise. Going through Harrisburg PA, Srcanton PA, and Washington DC..It was a great experience . The 4.3" screen is a big improvement..There happened to be an accident on Interstate 95, with a large backup. I got off the nearest exit and my GPS knew where we were headed, so it took us the back way on side roads to the next entrance, and we were merrily on our way.. When I received my new TomTom< I was very happy to get a double socket for my car, and screen protective cover kit, included...

This is our first GPS purchase and have been impressed. The only two issues that we have had are that 1) it is very difficult to keep the gps connected to the suction cup after attaching it to the windshield when trying to adjust it. Then you need to use both hands to attach it again. This is a pain when you have a larger car (SUV or truck) and the windshield is deep. 2) And it doesn't show the update of I75 Freeway through Detroit. It actually doesn't show any thing at all when you are on the freeway. The major construction has been completed for at least 5 months now. We will probably get the updated map at some point but we will more than likely have to pay for it.

We have had Garmins for the last 3 years in both cars. This GPS is far superior to the Garmin product. We just moved to LA and had know idea of how to get around the city. One of the Garmins died and we purchased this on the recommendation of a friend.The directions are better and have not had any problems getting around as we did with the Garmin. Now the other Garmin is acting up so we will replace it with one of these. Love the TomTom

Lot's of good features and quite easy to operate even without reading the manual. The link to TOMTOM Home is easy to configure. I could hear the voice instructions even with the radio on. The lane guidance provides good information especially for a new driver or for areas you are not familiar with.Only drawback is I could barely see the map at certain angles in the car when the sun hits the screen or casts reflected light on the screen. I don't know if other GPS units have the similar problem.Would buy it again.

I bought the GPS as a replacement for a TomTom that was stolen. The Garmin works a little better and starts up a lot faster too. I have not used it much as I pretty much know my way around, but for the occasional trip or new destination I will use it. I am planning to go to California in Aug. and will be a great help in locating a few places on the way to my final destination. I do like the little car verses the arrow for an indicator being me.

The instructions for this GPS are very poor. Had to go on net to figure out why it didn't speak street names. Used it one time and then it wouldn't charge using the home charger. Tried to charge it in the car, but would only partially charge. Am returning it ASAP. Unfortunately, I had already ordered a second one before I found out how bad this one was. Will return it also. Don't want to take a chance on another loser. Don't waste your time or money.

I knew I wanted this tom Tom as it is replacing the one that was stolen out of my car by a stupid Mope.

Reasonably accurate. Easier to use than the one built into my car. My wife uses this and seems pleased.

Great buy! Works great. The only problem I had was it did not arrive with the dual car charger but was fixed with one quick call to overstock.com customer service

The product was shipped with a car charger that didn't work. I contacted TomTom for a replacement and was given such a run around that I gave up and purchased one separately at another retailer. Very unhappy with the lack of customer service that I received.

The car charger provided with the unit was broken and not usable. The bonus kit did not include the dual adapter as shown and only included the screen wipes.
