Another good TomTom11/12/2011
Got this to replace an old XL one where the power recepticle broke off inside. They have fixed this by centering the plug and protecting it. Very easy to set up. When connected to internet map updated. It did take about 3 hours to download new map. I have a DSL connection and I guess it would be faster with Cable modem. I just hooked it up and walked away. Was done later. Improvements are the text to speech with street names. Also automatically switches to night colors after dark. Well worth the price. Would buy another if needed.
Zero, zilch, zip, nada9/22/2010
The only reason I gave this product all 1 star ratings is that I couldn't assign a zero. "Free" map updates take 3-5 hours to download and install if server doesn't time out. Online support is lower than weak. Phone support worse. The whole gamut - corrupt files; won't install; undocumented errors; won't turn on; won't turn off. You name it. I wonder how TomTom can even stay in business. Buy this if you want to spend 4 hours of screwing with it for every hour you use it. Mine is currently non-usable after 90 days of little use, and will probably meet its maker at the hand of a .357 magnum.
