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.

It was listed as new but once I opened it I could tell immediately it was used. Everything was loose and nothing was in bags.

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.

Very easy to navigate the menu, when we made the wrong turns the machine recalculates extremely quickly. There were some incorrect information about road closures or one ways when we were in France.

never being a true techie, I was concerned that I couldn't use the system. Well, happily to my surprise, it was very easy to use. Even if I accidentally detoured, the system put me right back on the road. Love it and will use it whenever I visit a new address.

I have only used the Tom-Tom twice, mostly to practice with since I already knew where and how I was going to a certain location. I have had difficulty in keeping the screen firmly attached to the "on windshield" holding apparatus. My dashboard is too curved to firmly attach the "glue on" pad that holds the holding apparatus on it. I thought I could enter a destination in my PC and automatically download it all to the device. Haven't quite mastered that yet. Plan a couple of upcoming trips in March and April to out of state locations that should really test the device. At this point, I am not head over heels with it; but need to give it a couple more tries. PS:I wish I really had a built in..

I am not sure the accessory pack was worth it, but I am very pleased with the GPS. It has bluetooth capabilities, which ishelpful, although the sound quality isn't great. We had a problem with the unit holding a charge, so Overstock sent the missing wall charger which solved the problem.I use it every day to supplement my car GPS and we take it on trips to use in rental cars. All in all, buying a refurbished model gave me a better product for a lower price.

Product was received within the expected time limit, price was reasonable. I have not used it yet and so therefore cannot comment on how good a product it is.

This was a gift for my husband, "Mr. Techie". He loves it! He is in sales and I didn't like the fact that he would use his IPhone for directions while driving. He can now set his address in the Tom-Tom annd focus on the road. The turn by turn is great, large screen and other features he loves.

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.

Product worked at first but quit working on a trip and never would come back on with the car charger on or when plugged into computer.

I've only got to use to use it a few times but I'm planning a trip to Florida and I know it will come in real hand.
