Up until recently I had Garmin GPSs the last one being the Garmin IQue 3600. When it finally gave up the ghost, I decided I was tired of Gramin and decided upon the Tomtom XXl 530 S. Its large uncluttered screen was a thing of beauty. Its voices were realistic. Its cross street names would be of significant help in my business. Compared to my old Garmin, It was nirvana...that is until I started using it in real case situations.

I live and work in a large metropolitan area. My profession is real-estate agent. I pride myself on being a top notch agent. I do this by finding exactly what my clients want. To do this, I drive my clients to each home. I rely heavily on my GPS to get us there quickly with the least hassle. I have found that spontaneity can sell houses.

I took for granted a feature of Garmin GPSs. This is being able to find streets without knowing a city or a zip code. I assumed all GPS systems had this feature. I was wrong. After three days with the Tomtom, I realized I was in serious trouble. After a phone call, I quickly went to Best Buy and bought a Garmin. nüvi 1450 Now, I'm so-to-say, back in the saddle.

If you are en emergency worker, a real-estate agent, a courier service or taxi driver, or any other profession where you have to rely on a GPS to find your way around, you cannot use the Tomtom to find streets unless you absolutely know the correct city name or the zip code. Many times, the city name provided by various agencies such as multiple listing services is wrong. Imagine my shame when my client whips out her Garmin from her purse and finds the street.
