I don't consider $40 all that bad. I liked my TomTom device in the past (unlike the Magellan which was so bad at routing that I returned it). My main complaint about TomTom was that 80% of the time when there was an exit only lane on the freeway it told you not to take it. That meant that if you were 30 miles from your exit it would tell you you were 3 miles from something, then 5 miles from something, then 2 miles from something. You had to pay more attention that way. Hopefully they've figured out in 3+ years that isn't useful.
