Don't buy for LIVE traffic - it usually doesn't work during rush hour in Los Angeles

Summary: I've had the 2535M for about 6 months now, and sadly must warn off anyone thinking they want this for the "Live" traffic service. The sad part is that when it works, Live traffic is great. Even includes surface streets, which is pretty nice. However, LIVE TRAFFIC IS USUALLY NOT AVAILABLE DURING RUSH HOUR IN LOS ANGELES! It seems that the more traffic incidents there are, the less likely the 2535M will be able to process them and display traffic information.
Summary: The Tom Tom voice is easy to understand and does a better job than my Magellan in getting you initially on the route pointing in the correct direction. I only gave 4 stars because the voice recognition feature does not work for us. This is one of the reasons I went to this up-scale navigator. The traffic camera indicator and the enhanced traffic delay notifications work very well.
Summary: I am (was) fan of TomTom GPS and was excited about HD Traffic. But it has been a big disappointment. It does not work when you really need it. The first time I used the GPS, it noticed UI interaction was really slow, but thought I can handle it if HD traffic really works. It worked on first trial. It gave me alternate route while going down NJ Turnpike, and I saved myself at least an hour on that trip. But after that, it has been testing my patient.
Summary: Bought two of these and both failed to connect and update properly. FIrst one crashed and I spent an hour on the phone with TomTom after a 15 minute hold. Useless tech support. Have purchased TomTom in the past and it performed. This model is a failure if you expect to update online. First time I went online it said the European map was out of date and asked for $$ to upgrade..on a new unit. Garmin model with European maps has smaller screen...but it works!
Summary: I have this GPS about 1 month and am very pleased with its performance. Have not detected any directional errors. Noted one section of a street which was incorrectly named. I corrected and saved the error very easily. Wish I could eliminate some start up questions relating to sharing info with TomTom. It would be nice to turn on the sharing when needed and not be questioned about sharing on every startup. The multi lane highway exit display is excellent and easy to view.
Summary: I think i would have loved this GPS even at the list price. I got it from the amazon warehouse (customer return) for $130. Only problem i have is that the gas prices sometimes aren't correct or slow to load.
Summary: I am generally pleased with my gps unit but do have several minor issues. First the power cord connect is not secure and falls out with any motion of the unit. I had to super glue the connect to keep it attached. The unit will not announce an approaching turn perhaps 1 in 20 times. I generally don't use the running street map feature, which solves this nagging problem by displaying the coming turn, so the lag of a verbal announcement is an occasional problem.
This is one of the best devices on the market in my opinion.

Summary: 1.My Grandson needed my TomTom 2505 so I purchased the TomTom2535. 2.There is nothing I dislike about the TomTom 2535. 3. I don't know about any other product because I have never owned anything but a TomTom GO. I have purchased 6 TomTom from the Go720 to the 2535.
Summary: Many reviews above talk about +ves and -ves so I am just going to focus on show stopper flaws here 1. If you miss a turn, the GPS takes forever to recalculate the route. By the time it has done recalculating you would have already missed the turn it worked out in the recalculation and the vicious circle continues. You would have to pull over to a parking lot for two complete minutes that it takes to recalculate before you could figure out where you are going. 2.
Summary: The TomTom Go 2535TM World Traveler made our recent road trip in Spain possible. We drove everywhere from remote mountain villages in Basque Country to major urban centers like Barcelona. While not 100% accurate with one ways etc. on some of the smallest urban streets, the GPS worked extremely well finding signals and giving accurate directions. The TomTom worked perfectly right out of the box and I had no problems with updates.
