Summary: In May I paid $75 for a new Tom Tom Via 1500. We noticed the "Lifetime Maps" and that was why we bought it, figuring we could keep it up to date. The map literature did NOT state that in order to get the free lifetime maps, you have to activate it with an online account WITHIN 90 DAYS. Now the 90 days is past and I must purchase new maps, at almost the cost of a new device. This is ridiculous!
Summary: Eventhought it says lifetime maps and MExico, Canada & USA Maps, my GPS only had a 1 time update and the USA Maps. On top of that once you try to log into TOMTOM webpage, the site does not recognize the 1500TM Series but another one!!
Summary: This is my second TomTom in a year and a half (the first was stolen). I loved my first TomTom, and knew that I had to have another. This version is just as good if not better than my original. I especially love the large 5" display. It is very intuitive to use and has been spot on for directions.
Summary: This GPS receiver is very slow, Sometime you can not get any signal no matter what you do, it takes almost 1 full days to receive. it is not easy to update this GPS. I'm not satisfied with this product at all...........
