The map with this unit was totally out of date. I live in a development that was constructed 2 years ago and it did not show up on the map!. There was no option to update the map unless I wanted to pay another $36 when I connected the device to my computer and accessed the website.
I was given a Garmin Nuvi as a gift a few weeks after I bought the Tom Tom and its map was completely up to date.
My advice - don't go with Tom Tom, buy the ***.
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
It gets me where I want to go. Doesn't always use the same words as I would in descriptions. Tells you to turn when it is a merge but knew it was a roundabout ahead. Go figure. Wish it had more than 3 "American" voices.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. I thought the battery life is a bit short but then again I am not sure how long the battery should last.
Easy to set up. Upgrades quick and easy. Excellent directions and advanced warnings. Voices clear and to the point. I felt that the product paid for itself on the first use, eliminating the need for a "co-pilot".

I have only gotten lost once since I got my Tom Tom. My only concern is I would like to know the name of the street I am turning on. It only gives upcoming directions in yards, and I would feel more comfortable with more information. Otherwise, I am very happy with this little device. I like changing the voices.
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.
