    Default Pros and Cons using TomTom Via 1500TM GPS in USA & Mexico

    Pros and Cons using TomTom Via 1500TM GPS in USA & Mexico

    While traveling 3000 miles from my home in Mexico, my old and trusted friend
    TomTom One XL GPS unit, broke beyond repair.

    This forced me to make a quick purchase of a cheap GPS unit at local walmart to continue my journey.

    List of TomTom Via 1500TM features
    Lifetime Map and Traffic Updates US, Canada and Mexico
    5.0" Touch screen - for better visibility
    Intuitive user interface - For first time users
    IQ Routes - Directs you to the quickest, most efficient route
    Advanced Lane Guidance - Use the best lane to get to your destination
    Integrated Mount - for mounting unit to window or car dashboard
    Memory card slot - for future map updates
    4GB of internal memory.


    Pros
    1. Using “MyTomTom” software makes updating both operating system
    and maps flawless.
    2. User interface new design improved for first time users.
    3. 5.0” Touch screen for me is a must have for long trips.

    Cons
    1. “MyTomTom” software current version has only limits features.
    2. Integrated mount must be remove before placing GPS unit in carrying case.
    3. Partial coverage of Mexico 74.4% and detailed coverage of 70 cities.
    4. Mount GPS unit to car dashboard for better visibility.
    5. Advanced Lane Guidance not yet available in Mexico.
    6. Traffic alerts not yet available in Mexico.
    7. Mandatory software update before using this GPS unit.

    After two map updates and many months of using this GPS unit it has now
    earn my respect. the more I use it the more I trust it. the 1500TM is a workhorse.
    It does what it is supposed to do. It functions very well after updating the software and map.

    Note:
    There is NO (current) way to manipulate/*****ing/patch/copy/clone or otherwise modify this v11.037 navcores.
