Summary: Bought this devise a year ago. Had trouble on Day 1. 1) Could not be activated. This problem was solved by contacting TomTom, but wasted lots of my time. 2) No Live service. Was told live service is good only in USA, but when in USA, the device still fails to have a live service.
Summary: The TomTom Go 2535 seems to have a critical flaw in it. The charging system is not powerful enough to keep the device charged while it is in use. It has repeatedly died on me during long trips despite being connected to power.
Summary: I bought this TomTom for use in Italy and turned it on for the first time in a remote village in tuscany. It found my location immediately and navigated me back home. the display is great, the accuracy of roads is wonderful and the audio is clear and loud.
Summary: A present from my wife. I really liked my old model, however this one is far superior in every aspect but one. The selection of voices is terrible. There appears to be a single option, versus 50 or 60 in my old unit. I loved the Irish accent, I miss her!
Summary: It requires a soft boot once a week. The speakers occasionally stop working requiring another soft boot. Installation of new maps is a nightmare. It requires over 4 hours of effort to install the new maps.
Summary: I am going to get another one. This one had firmware issues. While loading software it kept rebooting itself. hopefully the next one is working. What Crap. I am NO LONGER a TOMTOM customer. The replacement unit lasted 2 WEEKs The Worst Quality I Have Ever SEEN
Works ok in general but requires updates for out of date maps.

Summary: When a person buys a GPS, shouldn't they expect the maps contained to be up to date? The first message that popped up on the screen was offering a subscription to an update service because the "maps were more than 12-months out of date." Otherwise it got us around France.
Summary: This GPS is amazing! Auto updates, traffic rerouting, it doesn't even blink when my route includes a ferry in Croatia! I trust this device implicitly. Note: do not leave it mounted when you're not using it on a hot day.
Summary: I have looked at this GPS unit several times throughout the past year. I liked all the features this Tom Tom unit had especially with the live time map updates but the price was out of my reach at the time until I saw it on Amazon for a $100.00 less than anyone else had it for.
Summary: the top of the line navigator is excluded from TomTom's lifetime free speed camera updates? to make matters worse, there are no paid subscription updates for the USA for this model either. The navigator is wonderful and with the lifetime map updates it is even better.
