Summary: The size of the display allows me to place the unit on a universal dash mount in the center of the dash in my Ford Taurus. The split screen for lane changes allows me to make the proper lane changes safely. The lifetime updates are well worth the price and convenience.
Summary: Dont procrastinate. Get it if you are on the market for a new GPS and contemplating this model. Got it during thanksgiving and have had no regrets so far. Absolutely love it. The bigger screen is a plus!
TomTom VIA 1605TM 6-Inch GPS Navigator with Lifetime Traffic & Maps
11 February 2014
Summary: I didn't have any of the trouble that others did with updating from the web? Works fine. For me, the only value in any of these GPS devices is when you have no idea where your going. They always get me where I want to go. When I am close to home, it never knows the shortcuts that I always take so it likes to tell me to make U turns for several miles. After awhile it reroutes and get back on the same page with me.
Easy to use and so accurate my wife can't get lost anymore..

Summary: Wonderful GPS. I have a smaller model which is also flawless. The only thing that might be a problem is if you have a smaller vehicle the 6" size might make it pretty large for your windshield. Look around check them all and you will find the Tom Tom VIA 1605 TM for the price and operational excellence beats them all.
Summary: I bought this because of the larger screen size. I also like the fact that the windshield mount is attached. I have had a TomTom in the past, but always had trouble with the unit coming loose from the mount when I would try to stick it to the windshield.
