Comment:
I would not recommend this GPS to anyone. Ours crashed within 3 months of buying it and tech support was of no help. One tech had me working with the device for 3-4 hours and then the next tech told me the first one should have never had me complete the steps they had me do. That's a lot of money for a paper weight.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

This tomtom makes a lot of mistakes with its addresses. It cant even find my home address. I use to have a garmin and I have found now that the garman is 100% more accurate than a tomtom.

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
