Hopelessly inadequate POI database

Date:August 22, 2013
Product Highlights: Accurate Directions, Display Screen
Until a day ago, I was super impressed. In so many ways, this is by far the best GPS I have had. BUT, I was away from home and needed a Grocery store. I was appalled and amazed to find that such a common category of POI is not available. So, today I checked the online forums. It seems that many others are blown away by this also, and it also sounds as if a solution will be a very long time coming. In fact, the categorization in the POI database is very poor, to the point that I cannot recommend purchase of this or any other TomTom. Which is very sad, because so many aspects of TomTom are way better than Garmin. But this shoots it down.
Do not buy!!

Large screen and live traffic reports.

Date:August 6, 2013
Product Highlights: Display Screen, Easy to Use, Design, Image Quality, Value for Money, Sound Quality
Was looking for a GPS to send with my daughter to university in the big city. The TomTom 1605 has everything I was looking for . Large screen (6 inches), clear images. Easy to understand menu display, life time map updates and most of all live traffic updates so she can avoid traffic jams and accidents. I have an older GPS made by a different company and I am jealous of the new one. I'll have to get one too.
