This whole GPS experience that would be a first for me all started out when I walked into a Staples, and saw that there were many items to my interest that were on sale. I walked around, browsing back and forth seeing what I could get a hold of that I knew for sure I would have to wait a couple of weeks even more than a month to see that same item back on sale again. It just so happened that I almost walked right by this particular GPS by TomTom that was on display and had a bright sign that read "$149.99". Surprised I was, and I was aware of how much of a bestseller the TomTom name brand is. So I looked at it, compared features, and found myself at home, with one of these in hand. I mean, what's there not to lose with such a sale on a TomTom product? A TOMTOM navigation system!?

Well, that thinking would soon take a rough turn as out of nowhere, I started experiencing problems that should have had not occurred; such as extensive freezes on the screen (I don't know if it's just mine or not) and how much of a hassle it is when it comes to mounting on dashboards. Even so, I stuck through and got it fixed inside my car. It undoubtedly looks good and considering that it was at such a price, there wasn't anything really to complain about, aside from a couple of outdated maps. Ultimately, I've been satisfied with this given that it is my first GPS navigation system that I've ever used for myself. But overall, I'd recommend it for first-timers, but certainly not for those who have quite the experience as far as GPS systems go.
