TomTom XXL 530-S

Consumer review by:

good product

 

for the most part this is a great product. my only complaints are that unlike some gps units, you can't put the name of a store to find the closest one. the other feature i find us missing is a place where it tells you in words the route you will be...

Not Bad but I would get a Garmin1350LMT
