Customer Reviews of TomTom XXL 550TM 5" Widescreen Portable GPS Navigator (Lifetime Traffic and Maps Edition)
One to Get12/4/2012
I love this Tomtom. As a repeat customer for Tomtom I was super happy with this model and the lifetime traffic and maps.
overall a very good package9/8/2012
Pros: large screen, life time map data update, lane management, real time traffic Cons: inaccurate map data (a two-way street near my house is shown as two one-way streets)
TomTom XXL 550TM9/3/2012
Controls are somewhat clunky. Website requires 2 applications: myTomTom and TomTom Home. This adds to confusion. Also, model was so out-of-date that new map upgrades took 2+ hours to download.
I got what I wanted on time
It picks up the satellites quicker and the green arrows telling you what lane to be in for turns is very nice. Construction warnings work well too.
Love the big TomTom!8/21/2012
The large screen is great and not having to buy maps again for years is a real saver!
This is the third GPS I've owned and by far the most accurate. On a recent trip in Oregon, the only missing data was speed limit data in a few sections of back roads. It was very accurate with maps of roads, most speed limits, and travel time estimates. I haven't had a chance to test it's routing computer much yet to determine if it calculates the most efficient route, but so far it has been fine.
Would highly recommend it. Takes some getting use to.
Glad that I switched to TomTom5/8/2012
After being frustrated with the other major brand, I love this unit. The mount stays put on the glass like it should! The other always fell. Also the traffic views are informative and reassuring that it is up to date. Entry is as simple as possible without un-necessary steps. This GPS is a keeper.
Love the Tom Tom5/8/2012

I have two of these. This new one is a little different
