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 ......

it was a gift?

Very good item for the money!

 

Plugged it in and away we went. This has been very user friendly and the suction cup attachment has solved the problem with location in my vehicle. Very good buy!
