  • Summary: When I first got it, I tried it around my town and it worked quite well, very accurate. Then I tried it for an address about 25 miles away. It lost GPS contact after the first 5 miles and then wouldn't give me a business address I wanted even though it was at a major intersection. It wanted to point me to a house that was about 2 miles from where I wanted to go. I finally got it to give me my location but it would not show my destination point.

Not recommended

Ruben Khalafyan "Ararat", Amazon

  • Summary: First of all in order to enter the address you need to enter the city then street name and then house number, which is opposite of all other GPSs and maps, where you type house number, street name and then city. This is especially important if you are dealing with a costumer who is use to his/her smart phone GPS... Second, some times it will take all around neighborhood before making up its mind to take you to correct route.

Disappointing to say the least!

Mark, Amazon
2 August 2013
  • Summary: I have had nothing but trouble out of this unit, which is unusual for TomTom as I've had several. Update reminders at least 2x, 3x a week for "GPS Fixes" that don't seem to fix anything. I'm constantly having to power cycle the unit to get it to find any satellites to connect to. It is frequently off by several 100 yards, not FEET. Can't seem to find MAJOR interstates like I-40 or NC Hwy 321.

  • Summary: I have had a TomTom for years and loved it, so I'm a little surprised. I have a major issue with the website and updating. There were problems at every turn. I couldn't register with my Email. When I signed in with an old account it took several attempts to recognize my device. 2 days later I have still not succeeded in getting my GPS updated. There will not be a day 3 as I will take it back.

Nice Features / Poor Directions

S. Weitkamp, Amazon
17 February 2013
  • Summary: Nice size with easy to use features. It speaks your next two turns cleary. The 3D maps work great on big expressways. The only HUGE problems is that it takes you to the wrong address and tells you that you are at you destination when you are not. If I would have listened to it driving back to my house I would have driven into the Chesapeake Bay! Navigating through three out of four destinations it took me to the wrong places.

sluggish!!!!!!!!

E. Sharon, Amazon
22 June 2012
  • Summary: The TomTom VIA 1605TM has a gorgeous screen and a great interface. I always preferred TomTom over Garmin. I owned the Tomtom ONE and the GO 730, both excellent units with much better software than the Garmins... However the VIA, well, at least the 1605 is SOOOOOO sluggish, when you need to type an address it can take you almost a minute, switching between screens is slow.
