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.
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.
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.
Summary: I really like the ability to see on a map where I am going once the tomtom has decided on a route. Big plus and why I bought it I am a visual thinker and need to see that. Even if it is not a a very well developed aspect of the gps.
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...
If I did my job like they do customer service I'd be fired

Summary: This is my SECOND unit. I loved the first one but lost it when I rented a car. My bad. So, I ordered a second one. The second one had issues. At first, I thought the problem was with the cable that connects it to the computer.

Summary: I purchased this unit a year and a half ago and it worked great for the first 6 months or so. After an extended period of time however, I have had the following issues: "Lifetime" Maps - my initial purchase supposedly included lifetime map downloads.
