5.0 out of 5 stars Yeah, like it a lot.., 21 Jun 2011
I've been somewhat cynical in the past about owning one preferring to stick with a paper map. I thought I should get with the times and having seen a more expensive unit when a friend came around for the weekend, I decided to opt for an entry level device. The price for this Tom-Tom did not seem overly expensive.

a USB cable [which joins the unit itself to the charger]

Who would miss a free gig?

The pace of the songs is varied but never slows completely and kept me interested… Read more
