TomTom VIA 1535TM 5-Inch Bluetooth GPS Description:

Top Customer Review:
This GPS has all the good features of my Tom Tom XXL except it is not as large (as you would expect). One oddity it has is that there is an antenna built into the power cable. You can power it with any micro USB, but if you use the provided cable you get the benefit of the speed cameras and all that because of this little antenna. The problem I encountered is that if you wrap the cord around the unit and this antenna gets anywhere near the actual GPS it will interfere with the satellite signal and cause the unit to be constantly searching for satellite signal. It has one other quirk in that the suction cup mount cannot be disconnected from the unit itself. It is manufactured of a piece. So if you choose, as I did, to use a Hippo type weighted dashboard clamp, you cannot take the suction cup thing off. Strange, but not a problem. Overall I think Tom Tom is the best GPS on the market, but in this one they made some unnecessary and wrong headed modifications.

ADVANTAGES:
One nice feature it has is that you can mount it right side up or upside down and it automatically adjusts for which way is up.
DISADVANTAGES:
The voice recognition is AWFUL. I might as well be speaking Swahili. And YES I speak English perfectly and have worked as a radio talk show host. Also, the power button is poorly placed on the back of the unit instead of conveniently on the edge corner as before.

DON'T BUY THIS

unfortunately, tomtom apparently suspends or ends the lifetime maps program if the device goes more than 90 days without an update, this rendering the "value" of the lifetime map program moot.
ADVANTAGES:
Big screen
DISADVANTAGES:
This device now uses maps from 2011
