Anyone else tried to use the TomTom website?  I can't believe how bad it is.  Logging in is almost impossible and buying maps is harder.  I've got 2 regular devices and 2 iPhone TomTom cradles and I'm about to abandon the brand altogether.  Maybe it is a Mac thing but I can't even get the homepage to recognise I have a device plugged in.  It tells me I have a map in the basket ready to purchase and asks if I would like to log in and then won't let me.

Who makes the best GPS for easy map updates and purchases?

I bought a tomtom off uk eBay with Europe maps already on it. Worked out about the same as buying the Europe maps via their website but saves the mucking around.

Might be the browser?

IE.  It seems to work OK for everything else.  I'll get there.

I use garmin. I have a standard gps unit and another I use for my bike. Data logger etc. their menus and maps I find easier to navigate than Tom Tom. Navman are another easy to use brand.

Oh, and some of the units actually come with world maps. Tomtom do the 1050world. I forget what others do
