Always outsmart delays with Lifetime Traffic. The TomTom 2505TM receives live traffic updates automatically to give you the most up-to-date traffic information available. As soon as a delay is found on your route, TomTom will alert you and, if you choose, will automatically re-route you to an alternative, faster route. And, only TomTom has IQ Routes, an exclusive technology that evaluates routes based on actual traffic speeds, rather than static, posted speed limits; TomTom will recommend the fastest route for the time of day, so you’ll always be directed to the quickest, most-efficient route. TomTom is the only GPS with the technology to grow more intelligent each day. While other GPS devices remain static reporters of programmed information, TomTom devices are dynamic and ensure that your maps are always up to date. TomTom’s Lifetime Map Updates let you start fresh every few months by downloading our latest full map edition, while TomTom Map Share On-Demand Updates lets you download verified updates from other drivers in between the full map releases, and as often as you wish.

Top Customer Reviews
** This unit is sleeker and better looking than any of the previous models.
** The 5" screen makes a world of difference compared to the 4.3" inches on most other models. So if you can, opt for the 2505 and not the 2405.
** The screen is brighter than other models. Seems to hold well in bright sunlight.
** Very crisp and pleasing visuals. The text and graphics are sharper and more responsive.
** Extremely quick planning and re-planning of routes - that's the new Turbo Routing feature. Works pretty well.
** The car dock is very innovative. Sturdier and better mechanics. The magnetic process needs a little getting used to, especially when undocking.
** The automatic time zone setting for the Clock is a nice feature.
** Comes with Lifetime Map updates and Traffic.
** There is no docking station! You need to plug the USB cable manually for syncing/charging with the PC.
** For Traffic updates, the unit needs to be plugged into the car charger since the RDS-TMC Traffic Receiver is integrated into the car charging cable.
** No LIVE services. So if you need Google service or latest gas prices, you are out of luck.
** No memory card slot. So if you run over the 4GB limit, better start deleting stuff.
** No FM transmitter. No option to play voice through the the radio.Read more ›
COMPARED TO THE TomTom XL SERIES:
The last GPS I tried was a TomTom XXL 540TM. I had three problems with the interface on it that I hoped would be fixed in TomTom's latest and greatest.
First, the 540TM didn't list enough street names when displaying the map. The TomTom GO 2505TM is substantially better in this regard. Everything about the display on this unit is fantastic, it's clear and very bright. The graphics appear to be better anti-aliased and look quite polished.
Second, points of interest are still poorly organized and displayed. Restaurants aren't organized by cuisine, and the screen does not update distances while driving around. In a city, there might be hundreds of restaurant choices within a few miles, but they might not all be nearby by the time one finishes reading them all. I much prefer how Garmin displays the distance and direction each POI is in while the list displays, it's much more informative.
Third, I could not drag the map to look up ahead while the unit was navigating. My wife likes to do this while I drive; she'll manually look for alternate routes or shopping centers. To browse a map in the TomTom, one has to click into an entirely different mode, then click through another set of prompts to get the map centered on the car's current location. From there the maps will still not update the car's location as it moves along, meaning the user sees a static map with a "this is where you used to be" marker.Read more ›
It has several nice features that are lacking on my Garmin's. The best feature that Garmin does not have is avoiding roads on a route.
Great 5" bright glass screen. You can now see the screen in daylight.
Fast routing and re-routing.
Good routing. not perfect.
POI's easier to find. You can now search a find the name w/o going through the category.
Big POI database. I have found all the POI's that I've searched for.
Good speaker. voice is loud and clear. Still doesn't pronounce all street names properly.
Indicates the side of the street for the POI sometimes but not always.
Ability to correct maps and POI locations.
Great mount. We don't have to disconnect the power cable from the unit. It fits on the bracket and stays on when you remove the unit.
The unit is thick and not slim downed.
Can't use TomTom Home PC software. Now you use My TomTom web software that is not complete. Can't add POI's or anything else available on TomTom Home. Waiting for an update.
Can't use the send option from Google maps. Waiting for an update.
Announces the side of the street for the POI, sometimes.
Can't setup a multiple stop route, I can setup a route from point a to point b.
Cumbersome way to navigate to an intersection.
Navigate to feature makes you enter a city and does not have the "search all" cities like the Garmins.Read more ›
