"Simple and Affordable"4.5 starson by soccer_dad
Pros: Great Price, simple, easy, and Works
Cons: Expensive Accessories and Add-ons
Summary: This unit just came out and I just finished trying it out for the first time. It works great. For whatever reason, TomTom lowered their price from $299 for the previous version. That was the reason for my selecting this GPS. In my opinion, the other manufacturers are way over-priced.
This unit has everything that I wanted:
-turn-by-turn voice directions
-quick reliable navigation
-clear up to date maps
No this unit does not have bluetooth or an SD card slot. But, I personally don't need it. It comes with a mini USB connector that you connect to your computer. When the GPS is recognized, this triggers the desktop companion software to automatically download to your computer from the internet. The unit has a little over a gig of onboard storage for the us/canada maps and then about 100MB for add-on stuff (voices, map colors). I like the fact that it includes map share technology and a port for attaching a traffic antenna that works over FM. But, be aware the antenna is an extra $125 plus a subscription fee (I think).
Other than that, no complaints. It does what it says it can on the box and website. It basically operates itself once you input the destination. It is also very thin to fit easily in your pocket.
I thought the screen might be small, but in reality, it is plenty big enough. If it was any bigger, I feel like it might impede your view when mounted on the windshield or be too big for your pocket.
