My husband has a TomTom in his truck since he has to travel time to time for his business. He loves it. He's upgraded it, so it includes a lifetime of maps.
Its a great gift for those people that think they know how to get everywhere but always get lost. Its very helpful and easy to use.
This is a muct have for travelling. It shows the direction well in advance, it points out interesting sots to stop, closest gas stations, restaurants and more. Very handy!
I find this device quite handy when travelling on the road. It tells me how long it will take to get to my destination, and offers different routes depending on what I want - shortest distance, quickest route, alternative routes, etc. If you're lost or need help, there is also a help me navigation tool that gets you search for help. In it you can search for a number of places, restaurants, garages, parking lots, shopping centres, gas stations, etc. There are a lot of customizable options that you can choose from to help you navigate when driving such as:
- different map views and colours
- favourite locations that you can save
- different voices you can download (and you can create your own navigator voice)
- free map updates
The display on the screen is a bit confusing with all different numbers on it - I think the Garmin system has a better functional display for driving.
Good stuff to have, but you have to pay extra for:
- What I like about the system is that you can download traffic updates from the tomtom site and the GPS will tell you in advance and offer you an alternative route to get to where you want to go. That way you can avoid an ugly traffic jam. You can also find the cheapest gas prices in the are - and it will tell you where to find it ... but that you have to download too!
