Summary: This device functions exactly like my previous Via 1535TM (which was stolen) and I am sorry that I chose the GO LIVE version this time around. It does not come with an activation code and contacting tech support was a waste of time. I received an automated email telling me to try resetting the device which did not help (knew it wouldn't based on previous reviews I had read).
Summary: I love the biggish screen, the Bluetooth connectivity, the voice support and lots of other things about this GPS device, but attempting to update the maps via MyTomTom is driving me nuts. The TomTom call center (in the Netherlands, for South African customers) is friendly but inadequate in terms of making it work. The system either drops my connection, or fails to recognise me, or says there are 23 hours remaining for an update to download (!).
Summary: Pro's -$80 cheaper on amazon than at best buy - lifetime maps - TRAFFIC CAMERA's,RED LIGHT CAMERAS, SPEED TRAPS, SCHOOL ZONES, WORK ZONES!!! (in the city this thing will pay for itself in a matter of months) - IQ maps which reroutes you depending on what traffic is like ahead of you, this has cut my daily commute in half!
Fuel Prices Currently Not Working-TomTom wants you to install bloatware to update...

Summary: First of all the Fuel Price Live App is currently not working. I called TomTom today and it was confirmed that it doesn't work and they are working on a fix. It's not a huge deal as I use Gas Buddy on my iPhone, but they shouldn't sell something that doesn't work. The instructions tell you go to tomtom.com/getstarted and download toolbar so you can update your new GPS. DO NOT INSTALL THIS TOOLBAR. The toolbar installs about five or six bloatware programs on your browser.
TomTom GoLive 1535TM good if/when actually working

Summary: TomTom appears to have major quality control problems in manufacturing. My first TomTom GoLive1535TM worked great for about 2 weeks, then it began running down the battery even though it was connected to external power. The battery would zero out; then it wouldn't run at all. Then it would only charge when plugged in, but not powered on. I drive all day all over the city and depend on the unit for my income. Fortunately I purchased locally and B.B.
Summary: I bought a refurb GPS and have had it for a week now, i like the GPS, but i got an email today saying i have 30 days left for my HD traffic. It feels bad since i got this email. I havent even tested the HD traffic well and it already has a end date. I have used the GPS just once for now for about 30miles and worked good. touch works fine.route recalculation is fast. will update after further use. the only thing i feel bad is the limited services for the Go Live.
Summary: Item was shipped and rec'd as promised in email . GPS package was worn however all accessories were in like new condition. Having problem activating the lifetime map update code. there was no mention that activation code would be invalid in details of GPS.
