Summary: I bought several TomTom units over the last few years (and so have had to be creative and get new emails, since, for some reason, TomTom considers that their customers can only use only one device at a time, so each unit must be registered to a different email - go figure!
Summary: Tomtom Go Live 2535M vs Garmin 2595LMT I recently purchased the Tomtom Go Live 2535M with HD traffic, but wound up returning it in favor of the Garmin 2595LMT. I have tested both unit extensively in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex putting them through their paces in some fairly complex routing and...
Summary: A previous owner of many tomtom devices, I was looking forward to some of the new features. The features are there, but this device is so slow an buggy that it is pretty unusable. It hangs more often than previous devices and is very slow to respond.
Summary: I owned a TomTom Go 920 that included European maps for 4 1/2 years and loved it, but I wanted to upgrade to a newer and larger display and get traffic information. The larger display is excellent and very clear, I can see more information including miles traveled and miles remaining.
Summary: If your heart is set on getting a TomTom Do not buy directly from their web site. I bought this unit directly from TomTom. After receiving the item I realized that it was not what I needed. I immediately sent a request for an RMA to TomTom. It took 3 emails back and forth just to get an RMA.
Disappointed long time Tom Tom fan, next time I'll choose Garmin

Summary: My family has been a Tom Tom fan since Tom Tom One was out. I was excited about this model and could probably have not been more disappointed. Having recommended Tom Tom to friends and relatives in the past, I now have egg on my face. The live traffic update feature is a joke.
Summary: I purchased this unit to take advantage of the HD traffic. In the AM unit works great. Traffic updates within seconds. In the afternoon when its time to go home from work it takes minimum 50min to update the traffic at which point I'm half way home.
Summary: The battery will not charge and the device will not turn on. TomTom has verified the serial numbers of the devices sold are defective. Shipped overnight by Amazon, but sold by Plethora 7 LLC. Plethora 7 LLC is shipping TomTom GPS units that have defective batteries.
WARNING ~ DO NOT BUY ~ THIS DEVICE HAS KNOWN DEFECTIVE BATTERIES ~ TOMTOM DOESN'T WANT YOUR BUSINESS ~ BUYER BEWARE!!

Summary: Over the course of the past year, I have gone through absolute hell with this device. I purchased my first one in April 2011 and loved all of its features and how it worked. The honeymoon didn't last long, as a mere 45 days into using the unit, the battery completely died, rendering the GPS system...
