Easy to use, clear graphics, ready to go from the box. it is what i was hoping for in a GPS. It is important to study the setup as there are many features that are not in the default operating mode such as compass features. The bluetooth connection with my cell phone has worked flawlessly as a hands free speaker phone. The Li ion battery has great longevity if you need to use it in that mode (such as carrying it in a pedestrian mode while navigating large cities between meetings---it is somewhat larger than other models for this feature but i have only used it this way very infrequently. Overall it is a very strong performer and i have not encountered any problems whatsoever in six months.

It took me awhile to finally get a GPS. This one was to be for a gift for a friend. I bought the Garmin for my friend instead. On first inspection the unit is a good size. The screen is easy to read and the color selections are fine. The mounting of the unit is very easy. Two charges come with the unit, AC (house) and DC (car). The touch screen works well. No complaints here. The units locked on to a signal in no time. The instructions that come with the unit are not very good for the uninitiated. The CD with the full manual is better but could be written better. The first thing you should do is get the latest software update. This is easy. Just connect to you computer via the supplied USB cable and go to the website. Now here is where things went south. After obtaining the new software (easy) I saw that I did not have the latest maps. It is nice that you get the all of USA and Canada preloaded but to have a brand new unit not have the latest maps was disappointing. Even more disappointing was that I have to pay for the new maps ($50!!). No coupon for you to obtain the latest maps on this new unit. No you must pay! I did not purchase the maps. I took the unit on the test drive. No problems until I got to a highway interchange. The unit had the old interchange. Now this interchange has been here for almost 10 years!!! So the maps they have preload are that old! And I must now pay $50 for a more recent one. Wondering how recent it will be. Fortunately a friend just bought the 910 and they give him a free update DVD. Well I will be using his DVD to update mine. Disappointment turned to anger. The unit is good but they get you for the maps by not giving you the latest ones or giving you the latest update for free on a new unit. Oh and the Garmin, the unit works well and you get the latest maps. Wish I had read the one review that mentioned the maps issue before buying TOMTOM 700.
