Summary: I bought a TomTom 2535 M and a Garmin 2595LMT at the same time so I could compare the 2. With Amazon's easy return policy, I knew I would keep 1 and return the other. To make a very long review short, the Garmin was better in almost every respect, except probably the 2 most important items.
Summary: My job requires me to call on various school districts in and around the Houston area. My old TomTom suddenly stopped working so I needed an immediate replacement and chose the 2535M based on a "better the devil you know" criteria.
Summary: I just received my Go 2535M HD unit yesterday and would like to make a quick review based on my initial setup. Many users have suggested that they've had problems with updating or setting up their units. It is my impression that they may be PC challenged.
Summary: I purchased this unit a couple of days ago, received it yesterday, and today it is being returned to Amazon.. I don't know how it performs because it does not work. It was working right out of the box but I wanted to update the maps for an upcoming trip.
Summary: This GPS is great. Does everything I could hope for. 3D view is remarkable. You must be ready to trust the instructions. Recently on a trip from Blairsville, Ga to Tampa, Just coming into Macon on I75, Tom told me to take next exit to bypass a road closure on I75. I did not.
Summary: Traffic outside of New York City is great. In NYC, however, during traffic jams in the morning and leaving NYC in the afternoon, it is useless. A huge traffic jam will go unnoticed by the unit until you can see the traffic jam with the naked eye, and then, it's too late to avert the traffic jam.
window mount is bad, not as intuitive as I would like

Summary: (You may notice this review is very similar to my review of the TomTom VIA1505. These are very similar devices so I've copied large portions of the reviews but made adjustments where appropriate.) My wife has been harping me for a GPS in her car for some time.
Great bang for buck despite minor flaws and incompleteness of functionality

Summary: Note: Display rating = 4 stars (I have included the display star rating here in the text as I was unable to include it above due to a bug). This TomTom unit is meant to be compared to the current high end Garmin 3790T device.
