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.
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!! Still waiting for answers from the site or the seller
Summary: I compared every GPS I could find in my price range and found this one to have the most options. And now after I have had a chance to use it I am even more happy with my decision. This is a GREAT Value
