i bought it for 759 when it first arrived the states, and it's selling at 66X at harmony compXXXXXXX now. it sounds expensive, but actually it has its own value.

first of all, it looks great. unlike ANY other PDA nav systems, this one matches your car. i usually put it on the left side of the steering wheel, on the windshield. the display is really bright and clear. the speaker is amazingly loud too. the built quality of the accessories and tomtomgo itself is very solid and flexable, which does not make it feel "cheap". the battery can last for 4 hours that i consider very reasonable for such a good display.

it comes with a 256mb SD card for storing maps, which is more than enough for most people.

the OS, to my suprise, is very easy to use; even my friend, who is a computer idiot, know how to use it within 1 minute. the GUI is very simple and functional. in addition, the system is very stable, and i have never encountered any problem till now. the CPU is pretty fast too.

however, it sometimes does not show the shortest distance, and also doesn't speak out the name of a street or raod, which is the major con of this product. it does not support OSX either. ( but i think u can still download those maps from the CDs into the SD card by a card reader, but never tried). it should also comes with a display cover to avoide finger prints too.

it does provide an "eagle eye" map viewing function, but i still prefer the tradition 2D one more. at least, it works better for me.

to conclude, i recommand this nav system to anyone. you get more than what u paid; this is a very high quality product. even the box has some kind of design too (although it is copied from iPod's box..)
