The little research I've done on them, it appears I can get a better deal from Amazon, Best Buy, Office Depot, etc.

I've ordered my car, and it should arrive mid-Sept to 1st of Oct. Maybe I can save some money getting it some other place than the dealership. What would you advise?

Also, I want to download a voice from the internet for it. It's a voice called "Selina." Here's a link for that voice.

Wondering if you have any suggestions on what model of TomTom I should get that would have lifetime maps, and I would be able to use this voice from Selina? Warning, her voice is a little risque, and I don't mean to offend you, or anyone else here.

I have had numerous different models.....I currently have a XXL 540S and love it.....BUT, the dealer is charging about TWICE what you could get it elsewhere. SO, get one at one of the places you mentioned, or even eBay. If you get one off eBay, just ensure its NEW, in UNOPENED box. The 540S in one of last years models, but there are still a lot out there still in stores, which means you can get them cheaper. And for $140-$150.

Here is a link to the Tom Tom site.....you can see all the new models. the very most important thing is if get one that has "Life Time" maps, the XXL 540 series does come with Lifetime Maps. Not ALL of the new models do. IF your are looking at one of the new models, you will want one that has the 5" wide screen like the VIA 1505 or higher. They start at $170. As far as the voices go, there are a TON of free voices that are available....I can say for absolute sure the one you found onj that site..but it is FREE.

Well I just ordered the XXL 540S from the TomTom site. It goes for $140.67. Thanks for the help. I think this will be a good starter unit for me. They have so many different models, it gets quite confusing for a beginner.

As I mentioned before, its the model I have now and have had it for about 1 1/2 years....you will love it....you will be able to do more with it than most people will want.

I mount mine by the A pillar, the view isn't obstructed that way, and seeing as how here in Texas, that part of the windshield has the registration and safety sticker on it anyway.

as you can see by the number of people that have viewed this thread.....its been helpful, especially seeing as how many PM I have gotten over the years thanking me for posting it up, instead of just posting in the thread.
