Good value for money,
This review is from: TomTom Start 25 5" Sat Nav with Europe Maps & Lifetime Map Updates(45 countries) (Electronics)
Countering the negative reviews, I have a Mac running OS.X Lion - which having just been released I expected not to be supported, but I went to the website, downloaded the software and it works great. Not too keen on the webpage interface rather than a separate piece of software like the old TomTomHOME, but updated the device and downloaded the new maps, all installed without a hitch and with minimum of fuss.
Easy to use, seems to work well on route, pretty much like every other TomTom!
Downsides to this device
The USB lead is quite short for in car use depending on the placement of your vehicles cigarette lighter socket and where you want to put it in the screen - though I imagine this isn't limited to the Start 25.
There is no Quick Fix on this system, so it can take several minutes to lock onto the satellites - it does ask you when planning a route if you want to start from the last known point, but that isn't much use if you want to set off immediately. You just have to remember to boot it up as soon as you get in the car before you do anything, otherwise you can be in for quite a wait before you can set off.

You shouldn't be fixing it to the screen because it will obstruct your view. Listen to the voice guidance if you must but if you need to look at it then stop. Or better still use the wife to operate the sat nav - that's one of her jobs.
