DIDN'T COME WITH WORLD MAPS AS ADVERTISED

Ashli L. Russell, Amazon
29 July 2015
  • Summary: I have purchased TomTom in the past and loved them. I purchased this one to have for a trip to Ireland (my 3 trip over and didn't want to rent from car rental company). It advertised that it comes loaded with USA, CAN, MEX AND EU maps.

VIA 1505M real world use in the U.K.

peters, Amazon
1 July 2015
  • Summary: I just returned from a 2 week trip to the United Kingdom with this GPS. Mostly, it was a good experience. The biggest con to this unit is that, when it is new and you try to update the maps right out of the box, there's no way you are going to be able to do so without adding a memory card.

Too little memory to be useful; you can do much better

Amazon Customer, Amazon
22 April 2015
  • Summary: This arrived with out-of-date maps for North America and Europe installed. After navigating the website (about 30 minutes of wasted time--it truly is the worst-designed website I've ever had to deal with) I was able to create an account and update the maps.

Terrific GPS

Robert B., Amazon
21 April 2015
  • Summary: This is the best GPS that I have ever used. I bought it for a month-long solo driving tour of Europe (Netherlands, France, Germany, Switzerland) in December 2014 and January 2015. I knew that the money spent on the GPS, a case and charger with world adapters would be fully returned in confidence and...

  • Summary: Excellent investment. Just completed a one-week 2138 km journey from Budapest through Austria to Padua/Verona, then through Bled, Slovenia and back into Budapest. I had an older Garmin with European maps that I bought back in '09. They wanted $90 just to update the maps.

Do Not Buy TomTom devices.

Michael Del Soldato, Amazon
23 March 2015
  • Summary: It is a piece of junk. TOMTOM does not support this device, after multiple attempts on two different computers, there was no success in either computer identifying the device. TomTom does not download drivers from their site and they offer little to no support.

To Italy and Beyond!

Mike, Amazon
22 March 2015
  • Summary: I used this to navigate Italy in March 2015. I updated the day I received and a couple of days before the trip. It did great and warns you where the traffic cameras are. My only complaint is that the touch screen can be frustrating to use

Good product, easy to use and update.

William R. Rath, Amazon
8 March 2015
  • Summary: Great device. Intuitive and works well in US (East coast so far) and Europe (Austria and Germany so far). Automatic email notification of map updates is a plus. Map updates couldn't be easier - stands in sharp contrast to an older Garmin unit I had (Zumo 550) that was unbelievably complicated and...

Updating Process a Problem

Norton Downey, Amazon
25 February 2015
  • Summary: I ended up returning this unit very soon after purchasing it. I gave it two stars instead of one), giving it the benefit of the doubt that it might have functioned satisfactorily as a navigation GPS, but I couldn't even get to the point of using it because of problems I enountered updating software...
