We purchased a TomTom because our older GPS required a fairly hefty payment for updating online. Since I can't find my way to the end of the driveway and my husband won't stop and ask for directions EVER, we don't get very far from home without the little voice telling us how to get to our destination. He even argues with the little voice. There is something very typical about gender involved here. This device was priced very well, is easy to operate and updating online is free. The screen is big enough for people 68 years old and small enough to leave dash space for people who care. I can highly recommend this product and would buy it again in a heartbeat.
very good product, easy to use. understandable voice commands, clear display in 3d vision. also tells you restaurants and othe r poi while on the go. very good product. will ecommend to family and friends.
Our last GPS was a TomTom and it needed to be replaced since we felt it was not worth paying the additional charge to update maps. When it eventually died we did not replace it right away as we were looking for a deal. We knew the next GPS would also be a TomTom since we were very satisfied with this brand. Our first GPS was a Magellan that never operated as well nor lasted as long as the TomTom. We found a great deal for our recent purchase on eBay. We feel this one to be reliable and very easy to use, plus we love the larger screen.
The display is too bright at night even when turned all the way down. I mainly bought it for trips from Ga. to Tampa, I wanted to be able to find all the back road turns at night. This IQ Routes is garbage, I have driven several routes and found the best, but Tom Tom won't even consider that route. It wants to take me 25 miles out of the way to the west because it is one minute shorter, you tell it to reconsider and it takes you 30 miles out of the way to the east. The most direct route straight through it won't consider. And when I find a road on my route to tell it to go via it will take that road then still take me off on a side trip either before or after. I have to spend a half an hour laying out the trip road by road. Then it has no save feature so when I turn around to come back or take the trip again, I have to go through it all again.
I purchased this product because I needed a new one and becuase the screen is big. I drive a big vehicle and at times is hard to focus on a small screen. I like that it is very user friendly and I do not need to be computer sabby to be able to figure it out. I would reccomend it to my friends. The price was right and I had already looke at other systems with the size of screen like this one and the were over priced compared to this one.
