Summary: The capacity for storage maps is great to install all maps (US and Europe). Nice large screen. If you have multiple Tomtom GPS devices, a new application "My TomTom" have to be downloaded and install on your computer or laptop. TomTom Home application will not work with this device "GO 2535 TM WTE".
Summary: I'm going to keep this short and concise as I'd hate to waste any more of my time on this GPS. In a nutshell, the 2535 in my opinion is a mediocre GPS device filled with many issues. I live in PA and commute to NYC. I am very familiar with NYC streets and the ebb and flow of traffic. However, I wanted a device that could help keep my commute as smooth as possible and ended up buying the 2535 based on what I'd read about TomTom's new HD Traffic service.
Summary: This review is from: TomTom GO 2535TM World Traveler 5-Inch Portable Bluetooth GPS Navigator with Lifetime Traffic & Maps (Electronics) It's potential is extraordinary, but I've already returned two of them, so we're still not up and running, and I've spent 10-12 hours on the phone with support, and much more time trying on my own. I gave this 3 stars as a compromise since it's a 5 star product, but I haven't gotten it to fully work yet.
Summary: Pretty much the best GPS out there. Voice recognition leaves A LOT to be desired and sometimes gives you little warning that the turn is approaching. Bluetooth could be better as could a FULL set of instructions, not just the learn by guessing/trying mess !
Excellant replacement GPS but issues registering and updating product
4 September 2011
Summary: I've had my new TomTom GO 2535 TM for 1 week now and so far using the GPS in my vehicle has been an awesome experience. The voice recognition feature has been a pleasant surprise along with the bluetooth hands free calling. 99% of the time it will give me the correct address I have spoken on the very first try. The 5.0" screen is definitely a step up from my previous TomTom 4.3" screen. It took just a couple route plans for me to figure the device out.
Summary: One other person indicated this unit is in the beta stages and not yet ready for the market place(IMHO and his). If you do not believe this please call TomTom support at +18664866866 and ask them yourself. I was told about 10 days ago that they were having issues getting the unit to accept downloads of the maps and update and that a new home page would be rolled out by September 1 with all the fixes. I was also told this is a beta program that is causing the problems.
Summary: Because once you try to update maps the desktop software will destroy everything on the device. The mytomtom software didn't want to sync; the TomTom support forums said to do a hard reboot on the device. Apparently that worked because it cleared *everything* off the device (including voices, the North America and Europe maps). Too bad that you can only restore the North America maps via the support tool once you get it syncing again.
Summary: Although I like this unit when it operates (sic), the internal, non-user-changeable battery now totally fails to accept a charge and the software is becoming somewhat "funky" for no apparent reason. The GPS takes an inordinately long time to boot up when turned on, for example, and requires frequent hard resetting to operate at all. This after three-and-a-half months of use since purchase.
Summary: I have been trying all new generation of TomTom's and Garmin's going from one dissapointment to another, I finally choose to stay with this item because of the wide variety of maps which is pretty convenient when traveling between Europe and USA, however I have to point that Europe maps are not updated and that is going to be an extra cost.
Summary: Update -- After using this GPS for several months I no longer recommend it. It has not operated as advertised. I have had multiple problems uploading new maps, the GPS has locked up several times, had issues finding locations through the search function, and the maps and POIs are outdated versus the Garmin. Although I like many features of the TomTom and the their customer service was very helpful and responsive, teh hassle just was not worth what I liked about it.
