Excellent routing!5 This unit is worth buying just for the IQ routes! The most important feature of any GPS is its competence in routing. I have owned several brands of GPS, including Garmin and Mio. This one has the best routing yet! It always seems to choose a route that a local driver would choose. Some local drivers could even learn some better routes with this thing. The text to speech voice works well. Like other TomToms, it is very easy to customize in terms of the information you wish to display on the screen. The screen could be brighter. The windshield mount does not hold as securely as one would wish. I use an Arkon vent mount. Do not update map1 Don't run the free map update on this device. The map it will give you is larger than the internal hard drive and it will erase the map the came with the before you know what's happening. I have to return my unit for exchange, I still haven't used it yet. I called TT support and they said that it's a known glitch with this model. Nice GPS Unit, BUT BEWARE2 This is a good GPS unit, but be extremely careful about it's flaw of having no ability to accept a memory card. I would recommend this product, but use it out of the box and do not do/accept any updates, especially map updates; there is a 50/50 chance that you will either accidentally unplug your unit from computer too quickly and render it useless, or one of Tom Tom's updates (especially the map that is too large for the unit) will do the job for you. Out of the box this unit is great, although it does need the satellite coordinate application from Tom Tom to quickly find satellites, otherwise you will be waiting several minutes each time you carry the unit inside or power it off and on again. Pros: larger than normal screen, easy to use "tap" keyboard, large, loud speaker, boots fast, has maps that are mostly up to date out of box, map corrections Cons: a little bulky (for unit that does not accept external memory card), USB input is on bottom and 1/3 inch inside unit, lack of post-purchase support since they created device with literally no room for future expansion and still haven't created map update small enough to fit on unit, brightness sucks in direct sunlight I would recommend that anyone take a careful look at this unit. It works great out of the box, boots very fast, has a loud speaker and a large screen, but I am a bit leary of the fact that no one at Tom Tom recognized that that the map update they are recommending you use is 1.9GB, while the unit only has about that much storage capability. With the applications such as voices, IQ Routes (which is a very questionable application) and some other minors apps, there is absolutely no room for the updated map. I performed the map update immediately upon receiving the unit and while it took nearly two hours to download and update (and I have a very, very fast internet connection), my unit worked fine until last night; I attempted to check for and upload map corrections, but for some reason I must have unplugged the unit a few seconds too early and rendered it useless or something else happened. Tom Tom support can do very little to help restore this model as I did everything from manually backing up the unit to my computer, too flashing it with their application. I know own a nice looking GPS that does not work, but Tom Tom says they will send me a new device after I send them the receipt. We will see, but I think sending it back from where I purchased it is probably the best option because who knows if they will every make a proper update.
