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 if at all, this is the same with town and city names. Now looking for another sat nav which I hope doesn't have the same problem.
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. I have had the problem from new (bought this year via Amazon) but instead of a direct replacement TomTom after a long battle have offered to repair it.... really not good enough.
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. It would have been helpful if the numbered instructions started at number one and then ran in sequence rather than stariting at number one again when it switched to the computer. I subsequently bought another make and the sequence there was obvious.
Summary: It gets me from A to B but only just, no refererance to mileage which is a big no no and if you dont know your way around in the first place it will get you lost or send you the long way round(I didnt give it a chance to prove me right on the last comment) shame really my first Tom Tom was brilliant it just died after about 6 years, this model does not inspire the same confidence and will be replaced as soon as I can justify writing off the £140
Summary: Sono davvero deluso! Si spenge da solo e si riaccende dopo un minuto o due ma nel frattempo non si sa dove si deve andare. Si può spengere anche tre o quattro volte all'ora, o anche più. Non segala quasi mai la velocità reale alla quale stiamo viaggiando, spesso si blocca su di una velocità e non si smuove più!
Summary: Bin ziemlich enttäuscht von diesem Gerät. Die Routenberechnung dauert lange. Das System läuft instabil und das schon nach einem Monat. Trotz updates wird man in Sackgassen und auf verbotene Strecken navigiert. Die Bluetooth Sprechfunktion ist nicht schlecht aber der Lautsprecher klingt blechern und platt. War von TomTom früher eine andere Qualität gewöhnt.
