Updating a tomtom 340xl gps
To lessen the stress of navigating Boston via directions printed from Google Maps or, less safe, Google Maps on my Black Berry®, I decided it was time to modernize my 2009 Volkswagen Jetta TDI and add a GPS.After consulting with friends and reading reviews on Amazon I decided on the Tom Tom XL 340TM 4.3-Inch Portable GPS Navigator (Lifetime Traffic & Maps Edition).It did give me the chance to learn a lot more about the device and how it works.
I have lived in the Boston metropolitan area for over 10 years and have acquired a minimal ability to reliably transport myself to and from only my most often visited destinations.
I can get from my apartment to my favorite pub and the grocery store; however, add in a third stop and my navigational ability disintegrates.
However, I figured I'd be best off if I updated the maps first.
This instigated a nightmarish saga with my Tom Tom GPS and customer service.
I am not yet convinced the traffic information is either highly accurate or useful.
