Buy another brand

Screen cracks very easily and is not covered under the manufacturer warranty, very slow in choosing alternate routes. Mounting hardware to the window could be better, lets go to often.

TomTOm 55TM

I purchased this unit and It works o k other than some minor problems. Strength; 1) I Q route 2) Nice screen size. 3) Life time map and traffic update. 4) Best route selction. Weakness; On 401 in toronto area , it does catch when I go from express to collelctor the first time however If I change from express to collector , it does not catch that. The Advance Lane Assist always assumes that I am in express even though I am in collector. Other than that it is o k GPS so far.
