I treated myself to a TomTom just before Christmas and it arrived yesterday. We got to play with it on a trip to Bristol for a New Year's party. I works very well. It got me to our friend's house and I can never find this particular one by myself.
The one I purchased was from Morgan Computers here in the U.K. They specialise in refurbished stock and it was very reasonably priced, and looks brand new.
Hopefully there won't be later blog posts which say I have driven into a pond because my Tom Tom told me to!
