Extremely happy with this product. I last had a Garmin about 10 years ago and it was awful but decided to try this after the mixed reviews of the Tom Toms. Box includes 12v to USB lead for the car and, unlike the replacement nuvi 52, a USB cable for connection to your computer.
Decided to plug it in, download the software and let it update. No problems whatsoever, nice and fast and the software was self-explanatory.
Installation of the windscreen sucker was very easy and stayed put unlike my really old Tom Tom. On bootup it was quick to identify the satellites and took a minute to lock on to where I was. This was within seconds on subsequent occasions. The widescreen is really nice particularly on motorways where it shows images for which lane to be in to the right while keeping the map to the left, something I find very useful. You have a number of options to how detailed you want the maps and the screen and, if you like customising, you can download extra voice packs.
Never had a problem with it's route guidance, sometimes it decides to take a different route from my old one but it gets there quicker which is great. The added use of the speed limit on most roads is also quite handy.
All-in-all, very impressed.
