Tomtom via 135 with life time updates and eu maps. Excellent product easy to set up and easy to use i particularly like the life time map updates which works through the tomtom web site, which automatically appears when notified that an update is available. The way it fixes in the car with the window sucker is also very good, i am impressed with the speed that the sat nav finds the satellites and is up and running. I also like the facility to notify tomtom of any changes to routes and roads that are observed when using the device. Sat navs have come a long way since my first device and after using this device i think it’s superb and a huge aid to safer and more comfortable driving.

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.

Tom tom via 135 m sat nav – the m is important. . Before i start i want to say that the m is important if you want the free lifetime updates, not to be confused with the via 135. I needed a new sat nav to replace my old navman. I loved my navman but i knew it was time for a new one when attending a conference for work, way out in the sticks and it took me to a lovely quiet spot down a cart track to a field full of cows. On eventually finding the conference hotel my colleagues had a good laugh at my expense and all said that their tom tom’s had led them straight to the venue, so did those with a garmin. However a garmin was a no no, my husband has one and it drives me to distraction, amongst many other places with it’s weird and not very wonderful routing system. I did a bit of research into tom tom’s and decided upon the 135 m with uk maps. I don’t drive in europe and we use my husbands sat nav for north america. I was a little apprehensive having read some of the reviews on here which said that the software was a nightmare and that it took ages to set up and register for the free updates.

Works just as you’d expect, highly recommended. I prefer garmin devices, but my wife prefers tomtom. Her old tomtom (10 years+) died so we go this new one. Took an entire evening () to update, but once it was all up and running the huge screen provides an excellent display. Wasn’t too sure about the integrated screen mount on the back of the unit at first, but we’ve grown to like that now. Calculates routes quickly and accurately, which is what counts, and gives clear directions with detailed maps.

Good quality and works as i expected.

TomTom Via 135 WE M Sat Nav with Lifetime Map Updates and Bluetooth Hands-Free Calling : 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.

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.

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.
