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...

Quick at re-route ; Good features for price range when they work

Works right away.

 

One glitch. The power cord connector was for another model, absolutely would not fit. Fortunately had a cord from a cell phone that did the job. Plugged in, it was all ready to go. No manual to speak of and this was my first attempt to use a GPS.

Nice...But can't Update Maps

 

After trying many times to update the maps online, I could not find this model to get updates. The unit is great!

Not quite as advertized

 

Guess if the bargain is too good to believe, well this was one. As received, it had maps for US, Canada, and Mexico. But I foolishly decided to bring the maps up to date. Took two hours to finally get the maps installed, only to find out that I could...

Works well for basic use

 

This is the only GPS I've ever owned. It was a Christmas gift. Out of the box it was somewhat confusing. I spent quite a while online setting up an account and updating this thing. It was easy to learn how to operate. The touchscreen is responsive...

it was a gift?

 

This was a gift for my wife to replace our old GPS. The old one would have cost $120+ to upgrade the maps. So just the life time map upgrade is worth the price I paid. So far she seem to like it and says it works good.

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!
