TomTom VIA 1535TM Portable GPS Navigation System with 5" Touch Screen is rated 2.1429 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from You found out just in time! The features look great on paper..but that's where it stops. User interface.. AWFUL, Voice Recognition: May work 50% of the time. Reliability.. NONE. Wait, the bluetooth works pretty well with my phone, but the volume is so low, you have trouble hearing the call. I had older TomToms, and they were great. I have actually had 5 (FIVE!) failed replacements in the past 18 months. They upgraded me to the VIA 1535 after another model failed 3 times. This one needs repair after 6 months. You have other choices.. Avoid TomTom.. seriously.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from TomTom GPS failed on vacation 3 times This summer I bought this GPS for a vacation. While on vacation, this GPS FAILED to route us on a US highway and sent us on 1 lane roads in a deserted state park. Then the GPS GOT CONFUSED and refused to decide which way to travel. I had to guess which way to go at midnight on foggy Virginia mountain tops. In Nashville, the GPS wanted to take a 10 mile loop past the spot where we were parked then travel to our destination. In Arkansas, the GPS FAILED AGAIN never routing us to a specific address I programmed in. I used my iPhone from Target Mobile Kiosk loaded with a free copy of Waze GPS and paper maps for the rest of the trip. My 5 year old Garmin wasn't great, but it never got me lost like TomTom has.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ok out of the box and then My kids raved about how their friends liked TomTom. I liked this GPS when it was working. It did have trouble with updates a couple of times. It also has a problem rerouting quickly. Overall, I liked the easy interface and operation. Mine began having battery problems after 5 months of use. Now at six months its a brick. Wasn't really the deal I thought it was. I going to try something else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TomTom1535M Review We just bought this for my husband and he loves it. Easy to use. Display is bright with no glare in the sun. Great functions that respond well. We'd say it is well worth the money---

Rated 1 out of 5 by from awful GPS I hated using this Tom Tom! I had a Garmin before and will go back to it. This Tom Tom will not recalculate any thing and it is extremely frustrating when you are traveling in a city you are unfamiliar with and the Tom Tom only shows you one way to go! I will NEVER buy Tom Tom GPS again!!!! I am going back to the Garmin GPS!!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy, this unit has major defects I purchased this unit at a Target store. It worked for about 10 miles then produced an error message. "Unable to validate GPS signal" I then took the unit home and attempted to update. This did not work since I had a previous Tom Tom the online account would not allow me to change or add the new model. So I had to create a new account. Once this was done, a warning popped up stated that there was a bug due to the leap year which created the inability to lock on to the GPS satellites since March 31 but a fix was not available yet. Meanwhile I could not update maps or software. When I call Tom Tom they told me that this was an European model and therefore they could not help me. Even though the unit had United States defaults already set in. When I inquired about the Leap year bug listed on the Tom Tom message the technician again repeated the she was unable to help me because this was a European model.
