TomTom VIA 1505M World Traveler Edition GPS Navigator
The TomTom World Traveler Edition navigators have always been a good choice for those looking for a GPS navigator with preloaded Europe maps. The VIA 1505M WTE features a 5" screen and a new mount design which fixes the previous design's instability issues. There are lots of customization options as well as new features, including a redesign of TomTom Home, which is now called My TomTom. These changes have made the TomTom interface even easier to use. The VIA 1505M WTE has useful features such as Map Share, which allows the user to correct maps and submit corrections so other users can see them as well. IQ Routes incorporates a historic speed database to determine which routes are the fastest at what time of day; a helpful notification lets you know if your destination if to the left or the right of you as you make your approach. Performance can be a little laggy from time to time, with the navigator being a bit slow to lock onto the satellites, but overall performance is good. Though the VIA 1505M WTE does not offer lifetime updates for Europe road maps, it includes lifetime map updates for North America. If you are looking for a competent GPS navigator with Europe maps preloaded, the TomTom VIA 1505M WTE may be a good option to consider.
