Bought it from Staples for the move from Queens, New York City to Overland Park, Kansas; about 1300 miles move. The GPS acquisition is normal at start up which is about a minute. However, the reroute function is extremely fast. It takes less than a second to reroute. So much faster than my old TomTom One 3rd Edition. With the old ones, if I miss a turn, by the time it plans a new route for me, I'm already 5 blocks away from the new route I'm supposed to take. Extremely frustrating in a big city like New York where there is a block every 150 feet. With this 1505TM GPS, I no longer have to worry about that and trust this GPS to completely to guide me. It even works in underwater tunnels; Holland Tunnel in New York. So, if you are under an overpass or under a bridge, you don't need to concern yourself about GPS signals getting lost. With the street name announcement, I now know the exact location to turn without having to look at the GPS screen again for which road to turn. For me, turn right on Broadway Street is so much better than turn right in 300 yards, especially when there is a fork on that turn or where there are 2 streets so close to each other. It might be because I'm bad at mentally measuring distance; is it about 300 yards already? You know what I mean. The arrival time estimation is dead on, give or take 5 minutes. Now, I can confidently call and tell my friends/customers/family when I will be there. The advance lane guidance is also a great feature. I don't have to worry about if I'm in the correct lane. With the lifetime traffic and map, you just can't go wrong. In addition, this will pay for itself if you live on East Coast where there are tolls everywhere. One time, I drove from New York to Washington DC with this GPS (I trip I have done hundreds of times) and decided to let it avoid the tolls. I haven't paid a dime on driving according to this GPS. And the route is extremely different and saves me more time too. Even Google maps couldn't manage to do that for me; I paid a tiny toll of less than $5. All in all, if you are looking for a GPS, or even contemplating about getting one, buy this. You will not regret it. With this GPS, I'm driving safely and confidently without having to put a backup map in the car.

Expected better

Comments about TomTom VIA 1505TM Portable GPS:

Took it back the day after receiving it. While it has a great, easy to follow display, that's where its usefulness ends. Right out of the box, I downloaded the latest maps. So far, so good. After supper, I got notice a new map for USA and Canada was available. When clicking to download, it advised me I did not have enough memory to store the new update and it suggested I remove some items from the unit.

It has a fixed 2 GB of memory and no slot for an extra card. You are stuck with the 2 gig of memory and no more. After removing a few items and downloading the 2nd map update, I only had 156 MB of memory left on the unit.

The next model up from this one is the same.... no slot for extra memory. I should have read the specs on this before ordering it for sure, but I never suspected a gps unit to NOT have a slot for extra memory. I traded for a Garmin, which was what I originally thought about geting.

Comments about TomTom VIA 1505TM Portable GPS:

I have only used a gps twice before so no much to compare to but I have found it easy to use so far and it's pretty clear to follow with what lanes to be in and it gives adequate time t prepare to turn and it warns of speed limit changes if you miss it or sign is missing.

Comments about TomTom VIA 1505TM Portable GPS:

I would rate this product as acceptable. One feature missing which I had on my previous Tom Tom was a north indicator. This should be added to future versions off this GPS device.

Good price for Lifetime map. I brought it on sale. Compare to my old Garmin: Much Faster satellite response, clearer and earlier voice road guidance to allow driver to prepare lane change.
