    European map updates; microSD slot, February 7, 2016

    I bought one of these from Amazon’s Warehouse Deals a week ago and can now answer a couple of questions that have popped up about this product.

    There has been a lot of back-and-forth about whether the free lifetime maps apply to both the North American and European maps or just to the North American. I was particularly concerned about this because I had the experience, with the TomTom XXL 540S World Traveler Edition, of being told by TomTom that “lifetime maps for all maps on the device” didn’t apply to the European map that came on that unit. Essentially, they just stiffed those of us who have that device. So, I was leery when I read the conflicting reports for the VIA 1505M World Traveler Edition but thought that it was worth taking the chance. When the unit arrived, I created a TomTom account on MyDrive Connect and connected the unit. I then got a message that there were map updates to download for both North America and Europe. That didn’t answer the question, because TomTom always gives you a “latest map” guarantee when you purchase one of their GPS units. However, when I then reviewed my account information and checked on “Maps,” it specifically states that I have lifetime maps for both North America and Europe (shown as two separate “products”).

    The unit comes preloaded with both North American and European maps, but there isn’t enough storage space on it to install the updates. You have three choices. You can download the maps to your computer and then move them off of and onto the unit when you need them (using the North American map, for example, when driving in the US and switching it out for the European map when going overseas). You can load the North American map and a “zone” of the European map, depending on which countries you want or need at the time. Or (and this is by far the easiest), you can buy a microSD card, insert it into the microSD slot in the unit and leave it there. If you choose the microSD card option, make sure to get a card that is big enough to hold an entire map (or all of the maps), because one map won’t load with part of it on the card and part of it on the internal storage. I got a 16 gb class 10 card for $9 (on sale); that provides plenty of storage for all of the maps.

    I haven’t used the unit in the field yet, but my prior experience with TomTom has been very satisfactory (other than the experience with the European map on the XXL540S WTE).

    Nice unit…terrible TT policies and support., December 3, 2013

    This is the third TomTom I’ve had. My last one was stolen out of my car in Raleigh, NC. I got a call about a year later from a police detective in DC. They had recovered my unit, but it was evidence in a stolen auto parts case because they used it to track the suspects’ travels as they sold or fenced the car parts. In other words, “We recovered your GPS, but don’t hold your breath waiting to get it back.” I like the features and definitely needed the European maps, as I go there about every other year for a couple weeks. This unit is lightweight and works great. It takes a little while to update the maps (“free updates” actually means four updates/year), but I just let it run overnight to download the new ones. On my first TomTom, I didn’t like the mounting system, but I’ve come to like it a lot better. For one thing, the unit no longer pops off the mount so easily. The only reason I don’t give this unit five stars is because of TomTom’s absolutely absurd computer interface package, their website, and their policies/support. Remember that my last unit was stolen? Well, guess what? You apparently can’t add a second unit to an existing TomTom account…and you have to have an account to get the updates or any other reasonable support. What’s more, they told me that I can’t replace the unit that’s on my account with the new one. In order to add my newly-purchased, entirely legal GPS, I would have to prove that I bought it by sending them a copy of my Amazon receipt, including purchase price. Then, I would have to call them during business hours to have a rep remove my (stolen) unit and add the new one so I could simply use the TomTom management program, much less download any updates. I told them to get lost and just created a second account with an alternate e-mail. But along the way, it took a couple hours and multiple e-mails to figure out why nothing would work on my account and what i had to do to make it work. That’s just plain stupid.

    Good Maps & Directions But Awkward to Mount & Frustrating Update Process, April 10, 2014

    This review is from: TomTom VIA 1505M World Traveler Edition 5-Inch Portable Touchscreen Car GPS Navigation Device – Lifetime US, Canada, Mexico, and Europe Maps (Wireless Phone Accessory)
    I’ve had several Garmin GPS devices over the years and have been pleased with their performance except for longevity. The last unit I had, a 2595LMT, was dead after only 18 months. So, this time I decided I would try TomTom hoping the longevity would be better. Since I need both US and Europe maps, I chose the 1505M World Traveler. The unit is easy to operate and performance seems to be good. The maps and directions seem accurate, although I’ve only used it in the US at this point. However, based on using TomTom software in a rental car in Europe last year and based on my US results so far, I expect this unit to perform well in Europe as well. My big complaint with this unit is the built-in windshield mount is very awkward to use. I find it is difficult to mount to the windshield and the ball & socket joint is very stiff making adjustment somewhat difficult. I much prefer the Garmin two piece system, which is quite a bit easier to use and more flexible. Perhaps as I use it more, the mounting and adjustment will become easier. While the fine print says only the US map has lifetime updates, I did find that when I connected to TomTom MyDrive Connect for the first time, both maps as well as other software were updated automatically. I find the MyDrive Connect to be easy to use and to work as expected.

    Update: I finally used this on a 10-day trip within the US and now have to drop the stars from four to three. While the mapping software worked just fine giving good directions, the unit was so difficult to mount on the windshield using the built-in suction device that I preferred not to use it unless I really had to. Fortunately, I knew where I was going most of the time (by consulting Google Maps and memorizing the detail) so I only used it when I really had to. Unfortunately, that won’t be the case on an upcoming trip to Europe, so I’m a bit apprehensive, particularly on trips with multiple stops where I’ll want to dismount the unit at each stop as a theft countermeasure.

    Update 2: I used this device in Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, and The Netherlands recently. The maps were accurate and the directions were easy to follow. I didn’t use it as much as expected since the car I rented unexpectedly had a built in GPS unit. Because the mounting of the TomTom unit is so awkward, it was easier to just use the built in unit despite having a number of addresses programmed into the TomTom unit. However, in some cases the TomTom unit performed better than the built-in unit of the car providing more detail in the city. If it wasn’t for the awkwardness of the mounting, I would rate this unit higher; I should say, however, that mounting in the European rental car was not as awkward as I have experienced in the cars I’ve had in the US.

    Update 3: While the update process worked fine and easily during the first update, subsequent updates have been extremely frustrating. Using the TomTom MyDriveConnect, subsequent updates get hung at 99% installation. There seems to be nothing I can do about it. If I exit the app and then disconnect the device, when I connect again it simply tries to complete the update with similar results. Very poor update process. I can only hope TomTom fixes this problem since while updates are available I am unable to get them to my device. Very poor, so I’m downgrading my rating to only two stars from the three I originally gave the device. TomTom could and should do better than this.

    Update 4: Contacted TomTom via email on the stalled update process, but haven’t heard back yet (still early). However, the update finally succeeded after about 5 hours. This was NOT the map update; this was just a 12mb software update file! I don’t know why it took so long for such a small file. Anyhow, I was then able to complete the map updates, which I expected to take a long time since there were 6GB of files to download… 3GB each for the US & Europe maps. This update probably took 3 hr or so but that was expected. It appears, as another reviewer stated, that the Europe Map also has lifetime updates, since this is my third update for both the US & Europe maps. I’ll go back to three stars since I now seemingly have access to updates; however, the process is ugly. Hopefully, TomTom will resolve this issue with a more robust software update for MyDriveConnect.
