"On PAR for the money."4.0 starson by skippy8399
Pros: I like the 5" screen. It is easily viewable. The auto night dimming was nice also. It fired up quick, and after a wrong turn, gave quick corrections without going out of my way. Nice to do self updates for POIs not listed or road changes.
Cons: POI database is not that extensive. Some popular stores that were opened about 9 months ago were not listed. A Costco Gas Station was listed, but doesn't exist. Mis-spelling names can cause a place not to be found. Cell ph nav system seems superior.
Summary: I turned this unit in for a Garmin Nuvi 265 WT, which was very unimpressive compared to the TOMTOM. It lacked in all categories minus the bluetooth, which was hard to set up.
I weighed the option of continueing the $10 for cell phone navigation or get a GPS. GPS will pay for itself in 1.5 years, but will not be as detailed with the POIs.
I am going to buy a tom tom again, and update this unit on my own. It should counter the problems of missing Points of Interest.
It has routed me around traffic automatically which was nice. And gave the red light camera update without causing major alarm. The updates for free are a selling point, and the other creature comforts as well. Overall I would say this is better than a Garmin 265WT
