2.0 out of 5 stars OK if you're German, 11 Jun. 2012

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: TomTom XXL IQ Routes Classic Central Europe Traffic Navigation System 12.7 cm (5 inch) Display 19 Country Maps Lane Assist (Electronics)
Unpack your TomTom Via XXL Classic, switch it on and get going It's that simple! Without the need for any time-consuming installation, your XXL will direct you to your destination easily and safely straight after purchase.

This wasn't strictly true. The unit was accompanied by German literature, was set to German as default and was not pre loaded with English language voices. I'm attempting to reconfigure using TomTom Home software but it will be going back if I have to spend much more time on it. The startement above is therefore tripe.

"3 of 5 people found the following review helpful" - makes you wonder sometimes! Probably those two who didn't find this helpful have got this product instead.

This particular product is destined for the German marketplace, hence why it only includes Germany and the surrounding countries. Since they like to speak German over there, it's then only natural that the product would start-up with German as the default language.

Amazon need to update the website to remove the reference to "switch it on and get going", since you need to switch it on, change the language to English, then get going.
