TomTom VIA 1535TM Automobile Portable GPS Navigator
TomTom goes out of its way to make their navigation systems as intuitive as possible, despite the advanced features and capabilities. As such, the VIA 1535 TM is extremely easy to use. The large 5-inch screen sets this unit apart from entry-level models, and is perfectly suited for displaying TomTom's user interface. The maps are clear and filled with details, and the supplemental info (speed limit, current speed, distance to next maneuver) is easy to read at a glance. This model comes with voice-activated navigation, and includes a built-in Bluetooth receiver that allows complete hands-free usage. TomTom's traffic update function puts emphasis on historical traffic patterns, and can effectively plan a route around congested roads. The 1535TM includes lifetime map updates, but there is always the option of keeping your maps current by taking advantage of TomTom's Map Share technology.
