TomTom Via 220 GPS unit


The TomTom Via 220 is a basic navigation unit that lacks some advanced features, but provides a pleasant user experience

TomTom Via 220


Decent price ; Fast route calculation ; Buggy voice recognition junked

TomTom VIA 220


TomTom has carved this satnav out of its larger, older brothers to create a simple but somewhat lacking alternative. But at less than $200, is this a low-budget bargain?

Sub-$200 price; simple user interface; fairly loud and clear speaker

No Bluetooth; poor GPS signal acquisition
