Purchased the via 135 for our trip to spain, what a great asset. I used it daily for 3 weeks never a problem, so much more than just a journey aid. Points of interest, beaches and a list of many more.

Huge improvement on the last model i had. Sad that the only tomtom make of hard case is so large so bought another type on amazon.

Excellent levels of detail and can be trusted to get. Tomtom product which gives clear route information and guidance. Excellent levels of detail and can be trusted to get you to the destination. Here are the specifications for the TomTom VIA 135 M Europe Satellite Navigation System:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • TomTom
  • GPS for on the road
  • TOMTOM GPS Via 135 M Europe
  • The TomTom GPS Via range for easy navigation. Touchscreen and hands-free operation. Features a large screen.

Getting used to making it go, but appears to do what it should. The touch screen is a little sluggish, and i find that the programming is not as intuitive as i’d like, but maybe i’m just a bit dim, and things will improve with use.

Great sat nav for spanish trip. . Bought this for a trip to spain last week where i hired a car. Programmed locations into it before i set off and it was fantastic. In a week of driving around malaga, puerto banus, marbella and villages in between this sat nav was faultless and i was going to sell it on fleabay as my own car has factory nav, but i am so impressed i am going to keep it. Excellent bit of kit that negated the usual domestics of family travel .

Main drawback picking destinations by touch. Its good and worked reasonably well in sicily although a couple of times it tried too hard to find the shortest route and took us down some roads too narrow for cars. If the destination is not quite where you want it, its difficult to slightly alter by just touching the point on the map. You can do this easily on the garmin. I also understand that more expensive tomtoms have a better response. I put a memory chip before downloading the updates and it all worked very smoothly. So there is lots of space on the device i used a 16gb sandisk micro sd card. These days i wouldn’t be without a sat nav. They are pretty indispensable. This version is not the cheapest and it certainly isn’t the most expensive but to my mind gives a great coverage of europe and free map updates.

This is my first in-car satnav. Up to this i had been using google maps on my iphone. The tomtom is a huge improvement. I was able to figure out all the features without having to refer to the manual. The route choices are sensible and advertised journey times are accurate. The visual display is clear, and the options to flip between different views (birds-eye to ground level) are very nice. The night colour display is also very easy on the eye. Some reviews had suggested that the screen was on the large side but i wouldn’t want anything smaller. That said the battery consumption is heavy enough as a result. I’ve used it now in ireland, luxembourg, belgium, germany and spain. The belgian and irish speedlimits are accurate, the german ones less so and the spanish ones less so again. In spain you can’t rely at all on the speed limit feature which is a pity. Caveat: this is at the upper end of the price range and it’s the only satnav i’ve used so i don’t really have a benchmark.

Praise for the tomtom via135m satnav. . It is an absolutely excellent piece of kit. I lost one recently and it was never returned so i have bought a second one as i am so pleased with it. I use it just about every day without any problems and it will take me straight to the selected address front door. I have been last week on holiday in the costa del sol area of spain and it took me every where that i needed to go even to gibralter without problems using its european maps. Also the blue tooth connection to my samsung ace3 phone works really well so that i can be hands free in phone conversations with no problems at all and it is so easy to syncronise the two together.
