Bought this the last time it was up. Used the free update to the current map and the GPS wouldn't recognize it had a map. Tried multiple times without luck, eventually installed the original map from backup and that worked, but now it lets me know occasionally that I have a free map update available. *Very* frustrating.
I bought this to replace a stolen Garmin and while this finds its position much faster than my 2 year old Garmin, everything about the User Interface is worse.
For instance, if I am in GPS mode and I want to see the local map I have to click on the 3D map, then scroll to the second page of icons, then select view map, then then click on overhead map, then zoom way in because it defaults to showing me most of the state. On the Garmin I click on the 3D map and it shows the top-down map of the local streets.
Everything seems to take more clicks than it should, a very poor design for a device used in a car. If i want to save a recent destination I can't do it from the list of recent destinations. I have to nav to the second screen of icons, then to address book, then to recent destinations, *then* I can save a destination.
But the *BIGGEST* problem is the TomTom does *not* turn on/off with the car, unlike the Garmin. So when I get where I am going I have to remember to shut it off or it stays on and lit up in my car until the battery runs out.
I'm going to keep using it, because I can't afford to buy *another* GPS, but as soon as I can afford even the most basic Garmin I'm getting that, and I'm ditching this thing.
Shame too, because the design of the windshield mount is great, but the UI & such is so bad it completely overshadows the mount & fast satellite locating.
