Good product for the price I paid. The Tomtom GPS is easy to use. The best thing is it shows the speed limits and the car's speed next to each other. It also shows the speed and redlight cameras and allows me to add new ones to the system. The suction cup holds the light weight GPS securely.
Do Not buy this product! Don't be fooled by the pr

Maps are out of date even after updating from TomTom's Website. It did not show the hospital in my town which has been there for almost 4 years. Touch response is slow. I have to pay return shipping price of $9. I would rather by from wal-mart or bestbuy where i can return at no cost to me.
Charged it, downloaded TomTom software, then checked for updates. Tom said 4 updates. Started downloading, said 5+ hrs. Went to bed. Next day, GPS said had no maps. Tom said 3 updates, but connected GPS then download screen said GPS was up to date. But still no maps. Tried everything Tom forums suggested, but no success. Tom website very poorly constructed---kept opening new windows and asking for log in many times in same session. Gave up after about 4 hrs of trying.
