Anyway, despite an awkward user interface, this GO 620 has many desirable features - most of which we did not have an opportunity to try out since the item failed in a couple of pretty basic ways prior.
First, downloading maps and system updates (which you are requested to do immediately - and which you will probably need to install a memory expansion micro-sd card to complete) was a stressing challenge. Updates are to be done via wifi or usb connection to a computer. Took me 1/2 day to successfully download US, Canada & Mexico maps (usb consistently failed but was finally successful via wifi). Was never able to download Europe maps at all using either method; kept getting message "Oops Something went wrong. Please try again." No success at all after many attempts so initiated a case with tomtom tech support - who have been completely unresponsive for 3 days now.
Second, we tested this GO 620 an a trip from our home in NM to a restaurant in El Paso, TX along a route with which we were very familiar. Used our older Garmin to compare. The Tomtom was trying to take us along some really bizarre routes which were completely illogical. Our trip from El Paso back to home in NM was pretty much a 45 mile straight shot along I-10. We set the GPS preferences to take us along the fastest route (umm, that would be along I-10, yes?). Nonetheless, the GO 620 repeatedly tried to take us off I-10 onto some farm roads - and then, amazingly, back onto I-10. Go figger!
Bottom line: can't download your maps, can't get reliable route guidance, can't get responsive tech support - in short - you can't get what you expected and paid for. 3rd Tomtom product going back to Amazon. Very disappointing!
Bought a Garmin.

I purchased the TOMTOM 520 GO WIFI about week ago and was really looking forward to using it.
. Very good GPS calculates routes quickly, clear routing instructions for complicated highways exits.
. The user interface is customizable and easy to use.
. Voice commands are handy but don’t work very well. GPS has self-learning for your voice. Maybe with time, this feature will function more accurately.
. Wi-Fi Connectivity and Smartphone Messaging function very well. Uses your cellphone data plan for traffic updates (subscription service $$), speed cameras (subscription service $$). Your cellphone data plan will be used for these features (approx. 10MB/month). You can receive your cellphone calls and texts via your GPS – hands-free. Really nice feature. Text messages can be read aloud.
. WI-FI updates - Essentially, this feature is very handy since you are able to update your GPS without a computer, all you need is a wi-fi network. However, most public wi-fi networks are slow and it may take several hours for large updates.
. Adding the tomtom Mydrive app (iOS, Android) is handy and required if you wish to link a cellphone to your GPS. You may plan your routes on your cellphone and your GPS will automatically sync these routes – nice feature and works very well.
. The initial setup of the GPS was extremely problematic and time-consuming, this is the main reason why I gave this device ONE-star rating.
. Linking a cellphone to your GPS was not a smooth process. Once a cellphone is added it worked faultlessly. Several cellphones may be linked to your GPS.
. You also have the possibility to download the TOM TOM HOME program to your computer. Once you have it downloaded, you may manage your GPS with your computer, Map updates can be done faster. The problem I experienced, my GPS would not be detected by my computer and therefore could not manage the GPS via my computer. I attempted the GPS connection to different computed in my home but I experienced the same problem.
. I performed the software & map updates by using my home wi-fi connection. I have a fast wi-fi connection and it took more than 3 hours to download the updates. Unfortunately, after more than 3 hours at 91% of the update process, it aborted. I received a message stating to re-attempt the update and if I was unsuccessful, I needed to contact customer support. Customer service is very difficult to reach, you’re directed mostly to online FAQs and the user manual of your GPS.
. I spent over 12 hours to set up this GPS – a total waste of time. I was never able to connect it to my computer or complete the wi-fi updates. A GPS is useless when updates are not possible.
Conclusion: This GPS has many wonderful features; however the setup process is time-consuming and error-prone and not much customer support to assist you. After this experience, I will not buy another TOMTOM GPS. Buyer beware, TOMTOM has many technical issues and it really is not worth its high price. I do not recommend this GPS! Finally, I decided to return the GPS because of the negative issues I experienced.
Overall I would recommend this GPS.
