Both will do what they are designed to do. from all I've seen and heard, it's a personal preference. I do agree that the mounting system could use a good upgrading. Even using the dash mounting plate, it still falls off from time to time.

I have just recently received my new Garmin but in looking at the directions that it has given me so far, it is much, much better than TomTom. It recognizes my home address which TomTom did not and even recognizes addresses for homes just built. It has not given me wrong street names or told me to turn onto non-existant streets as TomTom did. I really like it so far.

Tom Tom does not show the address number when you arrive at a residence so you don't know if you are at the right place or just close to it. It also lead us 15 miles beyond our destination at one point. Other than that it has been good.

William, I really can't give you a personal comparison as I have never had a Garmin, nothing but TomTom's I can honestly tell you that I had only one that I wasn't 100% satisfied with. I still own and use the first on which is a one. I use a 5inch on my Goldwing Trike and a 6inch in my car, never thought seriously about trying another brand. Hope that helps.

Had very bad experience with my last two Tom Toms. I'd go with a Garmin next time. And the customer service for Tom Tom is useless. They argued with me over the phone for 2 hours and refused to fix the problem, even though the issue came from their part. Never buying anything from them again!

Tom Tom, but the mounting system is a very poor design. Mine keeps falling off.
