Summary: IT WORKS FANTASTIC LIVES UP TO WHAT IT IS SUPPOSE TO DO AUTOMATICALLY PUTS MY CONTACTS IN FROM MY IPHONE. NICE SIZE SCREEN EASY TO READ VERY PRECISE WITH DIRECTIONS WORTH THE PRICE I PAID FOR IT
Summary: I really like the GPS unit; however I did have problems with the updating software. The Tom Tom staff responded quickly responded to my questions and made changes to their software. Everything seems to be working fine. With this unit there is a one-time load of speeding/security camera data, but other cheaper TomTom units have free updates for speeding/security camera data. When you attempt to buy the data, that they tell you to do, it doesn't seem to be available??
Summary: I have to agree with the reviewers that found the product to be flawed to the point it was nearly useless. I have these points to add. The touch screen is very slow to respond. I reset to factory defaults and reloaded maps. That helped some and for a while, but the 1 to 2 second plus delay when an option is selected is quite confusing especially when you as a passenger that is new to the device to lock in a destination.
Summary: I recently purchased the new Tom Tom 2535TM and after loading all the new software (which was very easy to do) and using it on several trips; I can tell you that this is the best Tom Tom I have owned and I have owned several to include the Via 1505 (which I still own). I also recently purchased the new Garmin 3590LMT and found that to be the worst navigator I have ever owned, even worse than my Garmin 1490. The Garmin sets what I would describe as crazy routes i.e.
Summary: First of all, I live in Los Angeles and I've been using this GPS for about 6 months now. I don't know what's wrong with this TomTom but I find the software to be incredibly glitchy (the sound will turn off for no reason, or it will reset randomly). It's also VERY slow to recalculate/replan your route and find your position if you are coming out from underground parking.
Summary: Bought this since I was experiencing since local route funkiness on my Garmin 2595LMT. I gave them both a couple weeks spin and it was pretty clear cut to me that the TomTom had to go back. TomTom GOOD THINGS: 1. Magnetic dock mount - I pack away the unit every time I park, so this saves valuable time vs fumbling to plug back in the Garmin 2. Screen is bigger than the Garmin. About as readable as the Garmin most of the time. 2.
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!
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.
