Reviews around capability (5.00 of 5)

  • I love the hands free capability, which even extends to making and receiving calls if you choose
  • Most of all, I like the capabilities, the way I can enter an entire route with lots of stops along the way at stores or friend’s houses
  • Now I'll be honest, as colorful as it is, the screen resolution is nowhere as crisp as my smartphone which has one of the highest pixel densities available today

  • Now I'll be honest, as colorful as it is, the screen resolution is nowhere as crisp as my smartphone which has one of the highest pixel densities available today
  • would have given 5 stars but unfortunately having the fancy red roadster car taking me to/from destination not available & only have the triangle going down the street . . .
  • You also can not change the navigation arrow to a car symbol like the older model allowed you too
  • I hate that my last one had a cool car icon and this one for the price don't even have 1 car to choose from

Reviews around route (5.00 of 5)

  • Even with the "ask me every time" setting, it chooses the fastest route, not knowing that the shortest route may be only 30 seconds longer but may offer less risk of backups at certain times.7
  • You can also store your favorite locations and routes for later retrieval
  • I purposely passed some streets it was telling to me turn on to just to see how fast it would recalculate a route and it recalculated quickly.
  • but I will say that in a recent test it found the most efficient route of the three.

  • Now I'll be honest, as colorful as it is, the screen resolution is nowhere as crisp as my smartphone which has one of the highest pixel densities available today

Reviews around product (4.03 of 5)

  • Either it is a bad device or the product itself has bugs
  • It goes without saying that outstanding product support for 5 years is unheard of and is provided
  • Everything works fine and it's easy to use, this is the third or fourth TomTom I have purchased good product I kinda wore the others out but not totally
  • It is a very bad product.
  • For a new model, and being mindful of the free-to-all competition from Google, I would expect a better product and a better experience

Reviews around feature (3.61 of 5)

  • .I love the wide screen and the easy update features,glad i got it at a great price.
  • I like the features as it has more features than the Garmin, does all that the Garmin does and more
  • The new design is menu driven and has lost almost all of the attractive features of previous designs.
  • The light dimming feature for this TomTom screen is super for this use
  • It lost the feature (an optional setting) of having the volume track the speed.4

Reviews around gps (3.56 of 5)

  • Perhaps one is looking for a no-frills portable GPS unit.
  • I requested a replacement because maybe I received a bad GPS and the new one is just the same thing
  • This went from my favorite to least favorite GPS in one upgrade
  • This GPS is a real upgrade for me, but I still love my old one which is TomTom One.
  • The TomTom VIA 1525TM is a solid GPS unit, but the marketing material may set false expectations.

Reviews around unit (3.44 of 5)

  • This is a portable dedicated GPS unit with maps, spoken instructions, and traffic information
  • Not a bad unit if you only want to use it at night to get to places you don't want to go.
  • This unit is faster and possesses more features that I use.
  • Again, not bashing this unit, I just feel it could be better.
  • Regardless of the downsides though, I like the unit and give it a thumbs up.

Reviews around way (3.44 of 5)

  • cought a 1625 so it kinda rubs a guy the wrong way when you think they slipped a 1615 into your nice new box that says it's a 1625.Not big issues
  • As an avid citizen scientist, I like the way you can even report map errors or updates and get the maps fixed for yourself and other users
  • I like the way it automatically dims the screen lights at night, but allows you to override that setting
  • Most of all, I like the capabilities, the way I can enter an entire route with lots of stops along the way at stores or friend’s houses
  • I like the way this device lets me turn on specifically dirt roads yet stay away from ferry crossings

Reviews around tomtom (3.17 of 5)

  • I bought this to replace a faithful TomTom whose battery would no longer take a charge.
  • So far I have been very impressed by how intuitive this TomTom is to use, and how flexible and customizable
  • Everything works fine and it's easy to use, this is the third or fourth TomTom I have purchased good product I kinda wore the others out but not totally
  • Over all, I would say the Tomtom is inferior to Garmin, except for those awful Garmin driver alerts
  • I now love my 4th TomTom now that I know how to use it.

Reviews around speed limit (1.00 of 5)

  • I love being able to see the speed limit and you don't always know the current speed limit when entering a new roadway, at least right away.
  • This includes speed limits, actual speeds traveled, a timestamp, and the geographical location.
  • But with this TomTom, you cannot display your speed or prevailing speed limit unless you are following a programmed route.
  • The speed limit indicator works out of the box, which is also greatly appreciated.

Reviews around connect (1.00 of 5)

  • The screen has frozen solid as soon as connected it to "my drive connect" to update it.
  • It constantly 'loses connection', even though connected to a new computer with cord supplied and using the mydrive software.
