The GPS market has come a long way in the past few years. A decade ago, there were very few after-market GPS units, they were mostly expensive, and they were also mostly mediocre. The best units cost more than a thousand, and while they'd get you from here to there, didn't feature a lot of bells and whistles. Factory installed GPS units--then limited mostly to high end cars--generally cost $2-3k.

A growing number of portable GPS units have come to market in the past 5 or so years. Over time, the hardware has improved, the software has (for the best ones) gotten pretty good, and prices have (especially in the past year or so) dropped tremendously. (That last point--the tremendous drop in price--has forced many manufacturers out of the market. At this point, it is mostly dominated by names like TomTom, Magellan, and Garmin). There is also now competition from high end smart phones, most of which have a GPS unit built in.

(Amazingly--or perhaps not--the cost of factory installed car GPS systems has stubbornly remained around $2,000!)

While there has been substantial brand attrition in the GPS market, there is no shortage of choices. That's because each manufacturer now offers an almost ridiculous number of models, many of which are only modestly different.

GPS units can basically be differentiated as follows

1) Screen size (usually 3-5" diagonally)
2) Ability to acquire a GPS signal
3) The GUI (graphical user interface) presented to the user
4) Quality of the maps (how often updated, what geographical regions they cover)
5) Does the unit incorporate traffic data?
6) Quality of routing (how good are the driving instructions generated)
7) Does the unit offer text to speech?

Product Packaging: Standard Packaging Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I am a long time user of Garmin GPs systems. I had a Street Pilot C330 for several years and also have a nuvi 765T, so I will draw some comparisons between the TomTom and the Garmin below.

What's in the box?
* TomTom XXL 540TM portable GPS
* Windshield suction mount
* Adhesive mount disk
* Car power Adapter
* USB connector
* Instruction guide

Setup of this device is pretty simple. The instruction guide walks you through connecting it to a PC, downloading updates, etc.

On a high level, the TomTom gets me where I want to go and both visual and audio instructions were clear and timely. One note: when you near your destination, the TomTom tells you that you arrived and the display shows if the destination is on the left or right, but the voice does not tell you which side of the street it is on. This is not a huge deal, but its something I became used to with Garmin, which tells you "arriving at destination on left" and so on.

Two places where Garmin beats out the TomTom: Garmin seems to always give you fair warning of approaching turns, etc. The TomTom seems to occasionally offer the info a little late, like as you pass the turn. I noticed this issue during side by side testing. It doesn't happen real often with the TomTom, but it does happen. Also, if you miss a turn or intentionally alter your route, the Garmin is very quick to recalculate. The comparable 'replanning' feature on the TomTom sometimes takes a while, which means you drive around or sit there, waiting for recalculated instructions.

Product Packaging: Standard Packaging Verified Purchase
I received my TomTom XXL 540TM World Edition and immediately went to update the maps. I will be traveling to Lithuania Poland and Hungary. I noticed that only maps of the USA, Canada and Mexico were updated.
I phoned customer service to ask about the Europe map updates and was told that first I must update USA maps then I will be given options to update Europe. After completion no options for Europe map updates were available.
I called back and was told that only USA maps get updated and that I must buy the Europe map updates. I thought that this was impossible and called back to get the same answer.
With that I looked at the information on the Amazon site which clearly states "Free Lifetime Traffic and Map Updates for the US, Canada, Mexico & Europe."
I looked on the box and it says exactly the same thing.
I called back and I was told that I should refer to their web site and Europe maps are not included. I explained that it states that lifetime updates are included right on the box and I was told that I am mistaken. I then spoke to a supervisor who explained that there was a miscommunication and that everyone thought that I was trying to update after one year and Europe maps are only updated for a 1 year period (again TomTom states free updates for life).
All lies by TomTom - they do not want to update to the latest Europe maps. I did get my upgrade and I found out that it was handled as a courtesy.
This is not a courtesy - the box and all of the TomTom documentation for the XXL 540TM World Edition states "Free Lifetime Traffic and Map Updates for the US, Canada, Mexico & Europe."
AVOID TomTom
