Summary: First, I have to clarify that the TomTom GoLive 1535M is an excellent value and offers quite a few upgrades. The voice command function is one of my favorites and makes inputting the destinations a snap. However, I have twice purchased refurbished units that do not work. I was told on the last purchase to hold the power button down for up to a few minutes. The display did come up, but only lasted for about 2 days before shutting down again.
Summary: Continuous problems. Would not update, would not pick up satellites, would continually drop satellite and then start over. Called TomTom service and the technical service was not understandable and when they tried to service the unit they failed. They were supposed to call back on the final test and never returned my call. We have purchased TomTom units over the past 10 years but never again. Told all my contractors and employees not to bother with TomTom.
Summary: This item is a complete waste of time. I've been using Tomtom products for years and when my last one gave up the ghost this was my replacement choice...What a mistake! My main problem: the live services could not connect, when you buy a unit mainly for the traffic function it should work this one doesn't. The other problem was with customer service to address this problem.
Summary: I purchased this gps because it has the hd traffic, which they don't tell you is a yearly subscription after the 1st year, only to be unable to access the hd traffic or live features advertised. after a week emailing and calling tomtom and just being told the same thing every time I returned it for a refund and have put that money towards a garmin
Summary: Deceptive product description. Amazon shows HD Traffic among the product features but does not say that this is only for 1 year, afterwards yearly subscription for life about $59. They should compensate the customers for the time spend to buy and return this product.
