Summary: First one lasted 8months sent back for replacement, that replacement lasted 9 months, thats in the bin now. The touch screen seems to be prone to problems both my satnavs had the same problem.Going to buy a Garmin next, may be more relieable.
Worse in every respect than the TomTom I bought 9 years ago

Summary: I've now been using the new TomTom Via for about 6 months. Previously I owned a TomTom Go, bought in 2005. Sadly I gave the old Go away to a friend. I say sadly because the new one is worse in almost every single respect than the old one.
Summary: I bought this sat nav in May 2013 to replace my old Tom Tom One. I liked the new larger, clearer screen and easier user experience but within 2 weeks it failed to turn on reliably and totally failed after one month. I made the mistake of contacting TomTom rather than returning the unit to Amazon.
Summary: i have had 2 previous tomtom satnavs,the first was the old box looking types that did everything it was supposed to, the 2nd was a XL type which also delivered well finely gave up as the screen did not respond to everything. so i had to replace and went for the via 135 after the great reviews.
Summary: Before buying this, I borrowed a new one from a friend to try out. As we live in Spain, I liked the idea of lifetime updates , directions in English etc, but and this is a big BUT, the pronounciation of Spanish street names is very stilted and given in syllables, making them very hard to understand...
Summary: Arrived on time. Worked well for week . Packed up on holiday in the Continent and it was a disaster with out a Sat Nav out there. Returned it to Amazon and has been replaced promptly.. Waiting to see how this will turn out to be
A poor product, difficult website to navigate and very limited customer service

Summary: I have been incredibly disappointed by this Sat Nav... my old TomTom was heaps better. Updates come frequently, requiring connection to a computer, and have used most of the memory in just a few months. Despite this the sat nav frequently does not know where it is sending me miles out of my way.
Summary: The so-called instructions did not make it clear that one has to first connect the sat nav to the car so that it can then track the satellite. I linked it to the computer first and nothing worked properly.
