Purchased Via 135 after using a Garmin. Works well enough but on several occasions has lost signal at a critical point (in open areas - no buildings of trees) for 20 minutes, whereas my wife's old Tom Tom One, which we often carry as backup now, had no...

windscreen mount is awful

  (Rating Hidden)

Great when it works. Sadly, my unit doesn't work very often. It will refuse to switch-on for no apparent reason, even though the battery is fully charged. TomTom acknowledge that it has a fault and want €105.00 to repair it, but will not say what the...
