If you don't enter an address exactly correct, the 1535 will not find it at all. For example, often an address seems like it's in a particular city, but it may really be just outside of city limits, or in a nearby suburb. The 1535 will not find the address in that case. In my line of work I'm on the road often, heading to unexpected locations, where I only get snippets of the address. This feature alone makes me wish I had avoided TomTom. Not only will Garmin correct you if you enter the wrong city, you don't have to enter a city at all when searching for an address. Garmin searches every instance of that address on the continent, and chooses the closest one to your location.
I often want to simply tap a point on the map and navigate there without inputting an address. The 1535 makes me wade through several menus to reach this function, which forces me to pull over. With a Garmin, by default the map is ready to be dragged around to find any point, and then the point just needs to be double-tapped to begin routing.
The voice command on the 1535 works well if you have the exact address ready. If you mispronounce it, or don't have the exact address, forget it. It's nice however to be able to simply speak the address while driving off without having to sit there and type it in.
The 1535 comes preloaded with banks, restaurants, attractions etc... The drawback is that you can't browse through them by items closets to you, sorted by category, as you can with a Garmin.
The 1535's traffic works well. It receives the latest info on traffic delays, accidents, inclement weather etc... and accurately calculates the delays into your route.
Don't be fooled by the 1535's "3D" feature, it's nothing of the sort. The store demo shows a car driving through a city, with buildings passing by. This suggests that the 1535 gives a live representation of the actual city though which you're driving. In reality, this is just a generic animation that plays when you exit highways within a city. The "3D" feature is nothing more than a head-on map view instead of looking down on the map.
In addition to these key points, most other functions are generally hard find and buried unnecessarily deep within menu levels. Unnecessary or rarely used functions clutter the menu making it even more difficult to reach what's important. Unimportant alarms sometimes go off while driving, taking your attention away from the road to find out what they are. For example, a chime goes off whenever there's a parking structure near your destination. Who cares?
I would strongly advise against purchasing a TomTom and go with any Garmin instead.
The symcard issue was resolved before I returned this one. After using another manufacturers device my trip and seeing that units lousy traffic I've decided to give the TomTOm another shot with all the features working. I'll update after my next road trip.
For the benefit of other customers, the following link has some useful information regarding using Live services for the first time: http://bit.ly/1fG4gOT. In general, they should activate as soon as you get your first GPS fix as long as you are within the Trial period for the services. In case of any issues, our Customer Care department can also be reached via phone on 866 486 6866. Additionally, there is an active community that can help you with any questions on discussions.tomtom.com.
He told me my device did not come with the free subscription. I told him it was right on the package the unit came in. He proceeded to email me a case number and link and had me take a photo of the package and upload it to them - which I did while I made him stay on the phone to be sure he received it - which he did. He said "it would take less than a day" So, I went ahead and drove to Boston and used my Google Maps app so I could at least keep watch of traffic. It was rather annoying that without a subscription, this unit has no traffic or other features - so in my mind, I now know that it will be $60 a year for the LIVE services going forward after the 1st year. OK, thats $5 a month - another thing to note is that the LIVE services are based on ATT's cell network - which around here isn't that great.
After 24 hours, the unit still did not have the LIVE services and it was really bothering me - I e-mailed TomTom using the case number a couple of times with no response. I called TomTom and a rude tech told me that "they have up to 48 hours to fix the issue and that they are still within that 48 hours, and I just have to wait" She would not give me any other details or let me talk to anyone else. The second day passed and still no LIVE services. I actually did an RMA to Amazon to return the unit, totally frustrated and feeling like I have been ripped off, got a unit that may have been refurbished and shipped in an old package and was not registered in TomTom's database. I went to Best Buy and bought a Garmin nuvi 2757 LMT which out of the box had traffic and a nice interface.
Sometime around 3pm the next day I got an e-mail that the LIVE services had been activated. Curious, I figured I would try the unit one more time before shipping it back. The LIVE services kicked in and I drove from Boston to Hartford. I was pleasantly surprised at the HD Traffic. It was amazing. The other LIVE services worked well also. It was much better than the Garmin Traffic, even the Live Traffic they have using my Smartphone. I was impressed with the TomTom
Also, if you are considering a new 2013 Garmin, they took out the dashboard feature for some dumb reason - so you can only see one marker at a time when driving on a route - so you have to choose just one display marker between time remaining, miles remaining, time of arrival, temperature, current time etc. Only one of these displays on the screen and to change it you have to touch the screen (while driving) and choose just 1 of them - no more custom Dashboard - how disappointing and stupid to not allow a customer choose how they want their GPS to work, On this Tom Tom, it displays everything on the route and you can customize your dashboard.
So I am keeping this unit. Its 4 stars and not 5 because of the hassle getting it going and you can tell the design and interface is 3 years old and the web site is not that great. The old web site you could actually run your unit, enter your addresses, etc. Another reason is the $60 a year you must spend to make the unit useful, the catch I didn't realize. But its the best $5 a month if you depend on your GPS like I do. It's other LIVE services like Trip Advisor, Gas prices, Yelp - all really cool.
Overall, if you need to the most accurate LIVE traffic - its the best out of all of them out there. I don't know why TomTom doesn't put LIVE services on their 6" model - or have it as an option - it would be nice to have that available. For me, this particular GPS unit is the currently the best solution for my needs - a lot of driving to areas that are prone to traffic here in the Northeast.
