Summary: I bought this Tom Tom for my sister as a gift. It came with all the seals broken on the packaging. When she contacted the vendor they said this was normal that they checked out all of their products before shipping. This seemed odd, but she accepted it and began using her GPS. Then she discovered the car charger would not charge the unit. On a drive of 10 hours the unit did not fully charge and could not be used the next day without plugging in.
Summary: I just recently purchased the 1530 and I am not sure if I like it or not, the voice commands didnt work very good and it would not recognize words regardless of how loud moderately, or softly spoken. it also took me a long time to get it to the right state and put in an address. I am going to take it to Atlanta Ga. in Jan, and if itdoesnt work to my satisfaction back to costco it goes.
