Not user freindly, basic functions too hard to access, get a Garmin

Pro-photo, Amazon
25 February 2014
  • Summary: Long story short, this GPS is just too cumbersome to use while on the fly. Basic functions that need to be accessed quickly are hidden several menus deep in completely counter-intuitive places. I owned an entry-level Garmin from 2008, which was far better than this "modern", high end TomTom. If you don't enter an address exactly correct, the 1535 will not find it at all.

Poor customer service and NO LIVE SERVICES!!!

Erica R., Amazon
10 January 2014
  • Summary: Live services failed on December 31, 2013. It is now January 10th and I still have no live services. I have been on the phone, off and on, with TomTom since Jan 2nd, to no avail. I have to keep calling THEM because they promise to call me back and I never hear from them. When I do, they keep having me to do the EXACT SAME THING: step outside in the cold, do a factory reset and a soft reset. Nothing. Each. And. Every. Time. NOTHING!

BUYER BEWARE!

StingRay, Amazon
5 December 2013
  • Summary: This is a good and capable gps. But buyers beware though! The LIVE services that TomTom is trumpeting will only work, I repeat, only work, in the country or place where the gps was bought. For example, I live in Canada and so I bought the gps in Canada. I bought the gps because I go to the US several times a month, and I could use the LIVE services, ii.e. TripAdviser, Fuel Prices, Yelp, Google, etc.

Definitely My Last TomTom- And Not Happy With Amazon, Either!

Kyuzo, Amazon
10 August 2013
  • Summary: I just received my TomTom GPS unit today- my second TomTom with my old XL. I had originally ordered a Via 1535TM. Upon opening the box, I discovered that Amazon had sent me a GO LIVE 1535M. This was apparently intentional on Amazon's part as they had pasted printed labels saying "Via 1535TM" over the box's "GO Live 1535M" printing.

Good GPS..poor Tech Support

JohnInMesaAZ, Amazon
15 May 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this GPS because of all of the available features and because of my good experience with TomTom, having owned a Go Live 740....The unit I received never did have access to all of the live services...The Fuel Prices Live service is not functional and from my discussions with TomTom tech support over email, it is not clear that it ever will be available. This makes the product NOT AS ADVERTISED. Buyers beware.

SIM card won't activate on brand new device

Debra L. Oatman, Amazon
21 November 2012
  • Summary: I bought this to replace my old ToMToM which was very basic and still works, but the suction mount wore out. I am a mobile notary and travel 3 counties to people's homes to notarize loan documents. I have a very bad habit of not giving my destination address to my family when I leave my house. If someday, God forbid, something were to happen to me and I don't come home, my family would be clueless where to start looking for me.

Product Fair Customer Service TERRIBLE

Amazon Customer, Amazon
12 October 2012
  • Summary: The product itself is a fairly good device and works well on most things. The live traffic worked well but maybe a little slow. I came upon a traffic incident that had I-81 shut down, the accident had been there long enough for the state to have electronic signs put in place 20 miles before warning of the closing.

Can not recommend purchase at this time.

BFAuer, CNET
7 April 2012
  • Summary: I just purchased the TomTom GO Live 1535M for personal and professional use. I spend a good part of my working day on the road navigating the roads of Suffolk Co., NY. My past experience using TomTom GPS devices has been mostly positive, and that is what influenced me the most when deciding to purchase this new unit.
  • Pros: Good list of features.
  • Cons: Bug in Bluetooth needs to be addressed.
