So I have been using my model 755 Garmin gps that I bought when I arrived here in Switzerland. It gets you from one point to the other but the interface for a new model is not that great. If you have been using an Iphone for some time now you would understand.

Pro’s

– The normal gps functions, recalculate, recalculate oh shut up you piece of turd

Con’s

– Startup is good but for a new all powerfull machine not quick anough

– Why cant I disable the warnings in the begining, if you have seen it once then you know it…

– The touch screen is slow to respond and with the use of your finger its a pain. I think a pen is the best option. We took some friends to Engelberg and I by mistake press the wrong endpoint… a nice 2 hour route ended up in 4 hours

– Photos… haha they want you to take the gps and plug it into a pc and then attach photos to the locations what a waste of time. Put a 3MP camera in so that you can take a snap and then add it to the location.

So I have been waiting for the tomtom to bring out the car mount…. and its here at last. You can order it from the apple store and wait 3-4 days 150chf. The software cost 150chf and then you get all the maps. I am really keen to look into this but I would like to get some feedback from people that are using the app and the car mount.

So if you are in Switzerland or any EU country some feedback would be great.
