Although I just got this unit, I am very impressed! It's very quick starting up, very quick in determining my location and seems to be very accurate in terms of exits, roads, etc. My only disappointment is that the "lifetime" map feature is based on the "useful lifetime" of the device and TomTom reserves the right to determine what the useful life is and can withdraw support for it whenever they choose to. That significantly reduces the value of the "lifetime" map offer, but for an extra $30, it's probably still worth it, assuming they don't stop supporting it within a year!

I really loved this GPS until it was time to update the maps. When I did, the GPS stated it was "unable to use" the new map and since I didn't backup my maps, there was no way to go back to the old one. Looking through the GPS forums, I discovered this is a problem with Tom Tom GPS devices ranging over the last couple of years. If you decide to purchase the xxl 540, be sure to backup your maps right out of the box. There is a rather convoluted fix for this I found on the web that involves deleting the maps from both your GPS device and computer and then reinstalling from scratch.It did work for me, but before you try it, I would backup your maps to a second computer.

Easy to use GPS, clear and concise directions provided, easy to see screen. This is my first GPS and I have found it very easy to get set up and learn. However, TomTom Home is extremely slow to update, both when downloading a map update from the web and updating the GPS memory. Total process took over 3 hours! Downgrading to the prior version (2.6) of TomTom Home did not help, so I went back to the latest version (2.7x). So far this is my only disappointment.

It is very accurate and timely showing streets and announcing upcoming turns, even is rural areas. Screen is easy to see, even in bright sun on the dash. Window suction cup works well for mounting unit. So far, I love it.

I'll say this right out of the gate. I'm a loyal Garmin guy. I have a Garmin Nuvi 255W and my wife has a Nuvi 200. We have had them for a very long time and they work flawlessly. So why did I buy a TomTom? Well I was going to upgrade the maps on my 255W when I noticed a lightning deal on the TomTom 540m. For 20 dollars more I could take a chance on a brand new unit with a 5 inch screen. Hmmmm, what should I do? I read further and found out the TomTom had free map updates for life! Wow! I was planning a trip to Canada with my wife and needed the best possible maps. I finally decided to take a leap of faith and ordered the TomTom. I downloaded the TomTom software onto my Mac and it worked great! I setup my account and downloaded the current maps. That takes a while because the maps are almost 2GB. You can also download a lot of additional free stuff like speed traps and safety cameras. Once I had everything up to date I took it on a trial run from home to work. Here's what I found.

Once I got to work I tried to save my current location and it took me a while to figure it out. There is no documentation to really go over this unless you download it and read it. After a lot of trial and error I figured it out. On my Garmin all you have to do is touch the symbol that represents your vehicle and save location. Advantage = Garmin

Everything else was pretty much the same but different. To reach the menu of options you just touch anywhere on the screen. The icons are pretty easy to identify but took some getting used to. On my garmin there is a little speed limit sign in the lower left corner. On the TomTom it took me a while to figure out it even had that feature. Lets say I'm doing 50 in a 55. It shows up on the screen as 50/55. Once I realized how it worked I liked it.

I just wanted to provide this small tip to new users of the TomTom. It's about the suction cup for the windshield - I've read review that it doesn't hold well, and one person said that if he wet the cup before sticking, that worked for a while. The windshield mount that comes with the TomTom actually is designed to hold - but the instructions aren't clear. So here's how you get it to hold really tight - you couldn't even pull it off.

You will need to figure out the position of the mount first, then separate it from your TomTom, since you can't do the rest of this with it attached. With the suction cup facing the windshield (away from you), turn the disk that is in the center all the way counter clockwise. Then stick the mount onto your windshield where you want it, and while you push it with your hand, use your other hand to turn the disk in the center all the way clockwise. That motion, turning it clockwise, makes the suction cup really tight. Then you can put your TomTom back onto the mount.

Hope this helps some folks. My mount fell off a couple of times, then I realized what I'd done wrong.

When I went to the web site to set up the My Tomtom account and check for updates, I have to say that it wasn't super intuitive - at first it wouldn't take my code. Not sure why that is, but after going through some stuff I was able to do it. The GPS itself is very nice, I like the choices of voices, and the display is nice. It does reroute quickly when you make a different turn than it tells you.
