Summary: I did download new update for the maps (I have the lifetime traffic @ maps update version) for Europa. I use the GPS in Europa, and I did have message evry day on my GPS TomTom VIA 1535TM, that my maps are 36 mounts old,after current update. Very strange and unconfortable sytuation?
Summary: Would love to rate this GPS a 5 but, the My TomTom support feature is just so bad it brings down the total experience.
Pros: screen layout is efficient, lane assist is great on busy highways, voice commands recognized almost every time.
Cons: The MyTomTom application/webpage is horrible. Extremely slow, tells you to update then 60 seconds later says you don't need update, then continues to download update for hours. Says unit connected then says unit disconnected over-and-over. Never seen anything this poor.
Summary: Not as good as my old TomTom 730. Processing time is slower. If I take a wrong ramp it doesn't seem to notice until I get a long way from the original road. The speed limit function does not work as well. On many secondary roads, such as when traveling through small towns, there is no speed limit displayed. This is when it is needed most. Maps are very good and up to date. I like the red light camera warnings.
easy to operate, lifetime map and trafic are questionable by manufacture???

Summary: This unit just has standard gps, can not upgrade gps map on Tomtom website, even it has lifetime upgrade map-and trafic updates, this is questionable? The reciever is nice easy to read and operate, but the voice recorgnition is not function well, even giving number and address read slowly, it still cannot recorgnize. Overall its a good gps receiver and easy to operate.
