I like the 3D maps.
In my experience, at unexpected moments the SatNav holder disconnects itself from the windscreen, and the TomTom suddenly falls onto your lap, or if you are unlucky, into the driver's footwell, which is very dangerous when you are driving at speed. Also, the Tom Tom keeps directing me to go over level crossings, where I get stuck in a queue of traffic, sometimes for 20 minutes, waiting for the train to pass. It would have been quicker if the Tom Tom had programmed a route for me which avoided level crossings, even if that means driving an extra mile or so. And the maps cannot cope with finding a house in a road where there is no house number, just a house name or the name of a building.
I'm thinking of upgrading to something with a better windscreen fixing. I just dont know which model to get yet.
