Gets you there and rets you back.

Very easy to use,great value with life time maps,and the tom tom support team has been brilliant helping me to sort the lifetime maps.

Does just what iiwanted it to – connects well with phone via bluetooth, clear screen and lovely serena who even tells me what road/street i’m on. Here are the specifications for the TomTom Via 135 EU M Sat Nav:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • FREE Lifetime Maps – Always drive with the latest map. Get to your destination faster with FREE Lifetime Maps.
  • TomTom Map share – free daily map changes for life

  • Hands-free calling – Make calls on the go with Hands-free calling.
  • Advanced lane guidance – Gives you extra clarity when navigating difficult junctions.

It’s okay, but not really impressed. . Pretty underwhelmed with this to be honest. Luckily i got it on sale, otherwise probably would have returned it. Look, it does the job fine, and is a decent satnav. I was just expecting a bit better from this range – i replaced a much older tomtom with this one and there really isn’t much difference. Two huge drawbacks to it are the undetachable mount and the really terrible software/system for downloading updates etc.

On receipt i was a little disappointed with this model compared to my previous tom tom. On receipt i was a little disappointed with this model compared to my previous tom tom. But it has grown on me and it works well. Its’ use is not as intuitive as previous and one has to delve through the menus to find what you want-bit there are a lot of good features there when you find them. I purchased a traffic charger lead which generally works well receiving rds signals through its cable. Updates are very regular being flashed up on your home pc via your tomtom-which one should regularly add to the satnav.

I bought this sat nav from halfords for £130 to replace my old tom tom xl that had given up the ghost after 5-6 years. I did some research beforehand and had a good chat with a member of staff before choosing this model. In the end, the free life-time maps was very attractive and the slightly larger screen. Overall, i’m a little disappointed for a number of reasons. First of all, the touch screen is not very responsive as it takes about 4 seconds for it react to commands in the menu. Similarly, when you try to turn it on or off it can take up to 8-9 seconds. The voice-activated command function is absolutely useless and is more inclined to cause accidents than help you navigate to an address, due to the amount of stress that it causes when it keeps asking if you want to go to the nearest zoo. What really bugs me is that it doesn’t tell you how many miles you are from your destination after the initial route planning; which is a backward step from the xl. I also think that the screen is a little dull when compared to garmin products, despite being informed that one can increase the brightness level within the menu (it is already set at 100%).

Wouldn’t buy this particular model again. Having used this item for four years i have to say we are quite disappointed. It isn’t as good as our old tomtom. We have a classic car and like to plan routes with a number of via points and it isn’t possible to do this on this model even though it’s supposedly a better model. The cable attachment to the unit is also very poor. We always leave the cable attached to the unit but it has become so loose that you only have to breathe on it and it becomes detached now making it difficult to download the updates. We have also just returned from a european tour and although we only had a couple of problems with the actual navigation i. Trying to turn us into a one way street the wrong way, i think the unit is on the way out as it kept turning itself off without warning, never remembered where we were before turning off so the restart was always from our home address and struggled to pick up any satellites. I was continually having to reinstall our destination.

First time with a tomtom, seems very good. Map update process easier than garmin. Edit: update after using the unit while on holiday. We bought this to use in rental cars while on holiday. It did very well in palermo and syracuse in sicily, both cities which have thousands of narrow streets and one way systems, and completely insane, certifiable lunatics to share the roads with. The unit only once asked me to turn up a no entry street and quickly recalculated the route. It made getting in and out of palermo (in particular) manageable, though it did get confused as to its current position when several narrow streets ran close together. The only thing i didn’t like is the sound quality. It’s thin, scratchy and not awfully loud – just doesn’t sound nice at all.
