Summary: I never write reviews but I just had to after my experience today. I live in downtown Denver, and every 2 minutes it would lose the GPS connection. I'd be at a crossing, and it would take me to somewhere completely different or tell me to turn around. The map was all over the place. Eventually I had to get out my Samsung Galaxy S4 and use Google maps to figure out the way - which isn't the safest of driving methods.
Summary: 1. almost killed when it insisted that a freeway offramp was an onramp 2. example - in Fort Stockton Texas and said Holbrook AZ was 300 miles away and to take the 27...Holbrook actually 680 miles away and needed to take the 285 and 40 3. recalculating when stopping for gas? forget it...takes 15 minutes... Bottom line..
Summary: great little unit, it was reliable for 14 months until... This is my 4th Tom Tom starting with Tom Tom One, none of them lasted over 18 months. Ok, so the review is about this unit. While standing outside the unit would loose signal every 20 seconds, you can set your watch by it. It goes from full to nothing after 5-10 seconds it has full signal.
Summary: Bought this and it works......well almost. Because it had been previously registered and not used in over 90 days, the map update feature and the traffic feature are not longer availale. It still shows me where I am going.....
Summary: I already had a Garmin, TomTom and Magellan GPS units, and when it was time to replace one, there was no question that the TomTom was the right choice. Easy to use, great graphics, very specific directions and it replans your route very quickly if you do miss a turn. Price can't be beat, but at any price, TomTom is the way to go.
Summary: This is the third TomTom I've owned, so I am familiar with their units going back for about 4 years. When I saw the announced Via units, I preordered a 1435TM, which arrived last week. The good: This is the most advanced TomTom I've owned in this price range. Screen is sharp and bright, the built-in mounting is very good, and the device is super thin. The free lifetime map updates are a big plus, as is the free traffic information.
