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: This GPS was not all I had hoped it would be, and came up short in several areas compared to my 4 year-old Nuvi. The interface is not as friendly, even though it does a lot of things the Nuvi can't do. It seems to take more screen taps to get the job done. First, it is difficult to switch the unit between vehicles because of the mechanical way the suction cup holds it to the glass.
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!
