Have found in all ways, that, this Model provides all the necessary information for driving to any destination, and doing so safely! The added lifetime map updates are excellent value, and, the TomTom Updater at all times keeps me aware of the latest available updates. Highly recommended!

a number of roads are marked as unnamed. Is this a fault ? the roads are well established as well as being spoken and named when voice instructions are being read.

I am fairly new to sat nav use but this may need replacing... is there anywhere I can find out if this is a fault ?

I went to the website, downloaded the software and it works great. updated the device and downloaded the new maps, it's kind of annoying that you have to pay.

Easy to use, works well for me

There is no Quick Fix on this, so it can take some time to get the satellites

Slower to pick up a signal than my original Tom Tom and a few glitches that Tom Tom know about so I had to download an upgrade from the web which was relatively simple.

Overall though I like the product and very clear instructions (haven't ended up driving into any rivers yet!).

Bought this recently for a trip back to the UK. We are here now and it is absolutely invaluable! It's very accurate, the voice is clear and the directions timely and precise. This very well priced, simple GPS is exactly what we needed. The lifetime maps guarantee is the icing on the cake!

A great, easy to use satnav. I've been using it for a few months and it's fairly quick once you get past the initial setup. It's major issue so far has been trying to connect it to Tomtoms flawed pc software on their websiteam which may become more concerning when I need to update maps

Tom Tom is ok. Was difficult to update the software. Contacted TomTom customer support who tried telling me that it was my firewall, so I switched it all off, but it still didn't help. Kept trying and after 2 days the sat nav finally updated. Once done, it is really easy to use.

Basically good - Slower to boot up than my old TomTom but has lane guidance which is much needed when driving through Glasgow or Birmingham motorways. Had to play about with settings to get desired features on screen but like the auto day/night setting. Some interesting new voices.

I got one of these as a birthday present recently and have been very impressed with its performance so far. My wife has a three-year-old TomTom which is rather slow generally. This one acquires satellites in well under under a minute every time, and is very quick at generating alternative routes when needed. The advanced lane warning works perfectly and is very useful indeed.

I was a bit dubious having read people's problems with updating maps etc. but have had no such trouble. Ok, it took three hours to download the new updated map, but as the file was nearly 3Gb and given that I was using wireless broadband in the middle of rural Somerset I don't think that that is too bad! Anyway, it all went without a hitch.

The thinness of this satnav compared with the (slightly) older models is incredible. I also got a 'beanbag' dashboard mount which is also brilliant - no more round circles on the windscreen!

I realise that this is not a very technical and in-depth review, but as far as I am concerned this satnav is outstanding so don't delay, buy one!
