This little system has taken me to many places and not once have I gotten lost or made the wrong turn. The TomTom does just about everything for you except drive the car. You turn the unit on, type in the address you want to go to, and that is it. The voice TomTom uses is easy to understand, and the voice can be changed. While TomTom is directing you to your location you can also tell it to redirect you around traffic at certain intervals, usually 5, 10, 15 miles. It can also tell you where the nearest gas station or another point of interest is on the route you are already on. I have used this feature a number of times, and it has never failed me. It has been able to navigate me through unfamiliar cities in Los Angeles and back on to the freeway with no problem. It is also Bluetooth capable and can receive incoming and make outgoing phone calls. Which is a nice feature when your driving in an unfamiliar city.
