NOT AS ADVERTISED

 

The whole of the VIA series often get praise and a good star rate. However the real truth is far from the 4/5 stars they get. The return rate to both stores and TomTom are much higher than anyone would believe. I would buy one IF I could back up...

Good, standard GPS

 

You can purchase different voices online (celebrity, cartoon, etc) which is pretty neat, especially since you get a 10$ coupon from TOMTOM after registering. This thing gets the job done. To use the traffic feature you MUST have the gps plugged into...

Good, standard GPS ; Lifetime map updates and a traffic feature built in, cool stuff ; Many customizable settings ; Strong suction mechanism

Using the computer application for updating isn't a huge hassle, but it can take some time ; Touch screen is sluggish at times ; Start up to getting the first gps signal can take a while
