Good 3D screen, will get you to your destination using main motorways with ease.
Screen not so clear on sunny days, some screens will not allow u to go back, Tom Tom Traffic is a waste of time, and very expensive to maintain (mobile downloads). Points of interest such as doctors, dentist, law courts port crossings (Eurotunnel) cannot be found easily, you need to know the European spelling for most countries including the European abbreviation to enter/identify destination. Maps and new roads are not updated to alert you of new changes. Not compatible with most modern mobiles, therefore one will be unable to see who is calling or get text read back to him. Bluetooth is very unreliable and keeps disconnecting. Computer voices will read most street names and all non English names in a garbled manner that no one will identify. Instruction manual is not comprehensive or very clear.
It's a good device to get you from A to Z but not as good as Tom Tom would like us to believe. All the additional frills are not so good and not worth the extra money. I cannot compare it with other devices as this is my first. I owned this device and used it for over a year.
