I am happy with TomTom generally as I am used to the menus etc, having used them for years. It was a bit of a a struggle sorting out the updating system, partly because of Windows 8 (grrrr!), and partly because I needed to reset the firewall permissions. It still isn't wonderful, but I can usually get there with a bit of twiddling
Update April 2014
Having succeeded in linking to my PC without problems, (no doubt my fault not that of the TomTom) I am updating the stars to 5, this does everything I need it to do.
