Summary: I'm not sure why some have given this a negative review; this piece of gear works great! Voice recognition works very easily. I head to Paris in a week so will see how the European maps works, but local here in the Northern Virginia/DC area is spot on. I had a few problems connecting it to the computer to sync up and download new maps, but once I downloaded the new "MyTomTom" Home, it worked like a breeze.
Summary: When going to replace an older GPS I heard all of the hype about Garmin. I tried them out, and they could not match this unit for ease of use, but especially the clarity of the glass 5 inch screen. I had a problem with this unit, and had to get it replaced. The replacement is without problems. I also bought a 5" Tom tom Via for $100 less at BJ's with a regular screen, while I was waiting for the replacement and it is functions exactly like this one.
Summary: Although I purchase it more than one year ago I think this is worth to write and note that there is some problems with this model. I bought it on May and after try to use it I had to return it because GPS was having problems with battery. As usual Amazon immediatly replace it but unfortunately it started having problems with battery.
Summary: Used it on one trip. The controls work great. Information was current. I returned it because teck support could not figure out how to make the lifetime maps work. Bought a Garmin - had no problems with it updating.
Summary: I purchased this product because Chicago traffic is very bad and somewhat unpredictable. Traffic rerouting works pretty well, but the ETA is much less accurate than the free Google Maps application. I got an open box unit which wasn't registered within 90 days of first use. TomTom support insists that they won't honor their "Lifetime maps" since it was not registered within the first 90 days.
they never sent to me the retun lablel as they promis. it died when updating maps,

Summary: After having some difficulties getting it to link to my Tomtom account I was able to get to start downloading updates. The map update and to begin installing. Shortly after install began it gave a message that something had gone wrong and to contact customer service. I called and spoke CS rep, they use for updates had some issues and that I should give them a month or two to get things working correctly.
Summary: When the TomTom GO 2535TM works, it works great. I truly enjoyed using it. It was fairly easy to learn how to use, and it always got me where I wanted to go! However, last Thursday, January 10, 2013, my TomTom GO 2535TM stopped working again. I say again because I had to have it replaced (under warranty) a few months after I first got it. This time the symptoms were the same - the unit simply stopped working! Luckily for me, my unit was still within its 1-year warranty.
