Traffic receiver 12v cig lighter plug, free 1 yr gas subscription, road side assist 20 percent off coupon, tomtom start 50tm gps module with user manual installed on the unit dock to access. Lifetime map update card with pin for activation after dock with PC, and downloading a free version of tomtom home software for your PC. Maps of the USA, Canada, Mexico and Puerto Rico. Unlimited traffic included on the traffic receiver cord, no need to install, nor call tomtom USA for assistance good to go out of the box. Though this device does not consist of live updates. Tom-tom go live is necessary for this purpose. I:E: if you want updates on the fly get the TomTomgoLive instead of this device. Though note if you do so you will have to pay monthly for traffic updates. Much better to update via laptop on the fly with this unit.

This unit comes with a USB cable to draw power from your computer and a automobile power cord. The display is 5 inches.

The battery is internal, already installed in the sealed GPS.

The automobile mount is an EasyPort, which is a suction cup for your windshield that locks in position.

"TM" in the model name means lifetime updates for Traffic and Maps (you receive quarterly updates by going online and downloading, takes about 2 hours). The unit speaks instructions and provides lane assistance.

no, but it has every other feature you can buy. I found that the voice activated are a pain. They so often want a crossstreet and that is the purpose of having a GPS!

Get on TomTom.com and you can put in your model number and it will bring up the whole instruction manual. You will need to get on the computer for all of your free updates that you will want to install in your TomTom as time goes on.
