They don't make them like they used to.

Well Tomtom have certainly gone downhill. I should have paid more attention to the 1 star reviews!
I bought this to replace an old Tomtom One which has given many years' sterling service but only has a 3.5" screen and map updates have to be purchased.
I decided to go for the larger screen and included "Lifetime" map updates. After registering the device and setting up an account the latest map was installed along with Quickgpsfix. They seem to have installed a reasonable internal memory capacity to accomodate future map updates.
I realise it's their base model but it should still be fit for purpose.
Firstly the attached mount is an example of how not to do it, why not have it separate? It does stick to the window though. After around 20 minutes in the car it finally decided to locate satellites which it then lost and found on a regular basis. There is insufficient volume for the voice navigation which is barely audible without turning the car radio off.
The micro usb connector is very loose and difficult to connect using the supplied cable. I can't see this lasting too long before breaking or being damaged. It's also more suitable for lhd and should be centrally located.
So unfortunately not impressed and returning for a refund.
Edit to add - Replaced with a Garmin 55LM which is proving to be a far superior device and actually works.
