By the way. I find the stock mount to suck too.. I own 6 Tomtoms currently and have had about 10 since they first came out.. TomTom simply can not make a good mount. All of them have sucked. I get these http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001H4B0AC from Amazon and they work well.

Not lookin' like such a sweet deal anymore.
I have this model. It's pretty awesome if you're a bit geeky & don't mind digging into the speech files to correct a few odd translations issues that can happen. Mine would pass an "o" from one file to another in an attempt to pronounce 202 as "two-oh-two". Unfortunately the 2nd file would interpret "o" as French for "West" so TomTom would say "Two-West-Two". The simple fix was to edit the file to translate zeros as "oh" instead of "o".
I also swapped out the Icon so that I see a picture of my truck on the screen :o).
It's still a love/hate relationship with editing speed limits on I25 in Colorado, which are usually wrong... Are Correct Interstate Speed limits too much to ask for TomTom???? It is a tedious pain to manually enter speed limits as each tiny section of road must be selected. You cannot simply select a start and end point... Duh!
All that said... great little unit, but removal of the lifetime updates turns this deal from gold to much less than bronze IMHO.
Hope you find this a "quality" post ;o)
