    Description stated the product came with map updates as often as you want them which to any logical person would mean lifetime maps. When requested to have lifetime maps activated on their website, they agreed the GPS was advertised to have lifetime maps but claimed that refurbished items do NOT come with lifetime maps. After several complaints to Tom Tom and a complaint filed with the BBB, they still refused to provide lifetime maps. Fortunately Walmarts policy of refunding on items which one is not satisfied with resulted in Tom Tom getting their misrepresented items back. Their customer service people talk a very congenial talk all the time refusing to do anything about the deceptive advertising. If you buy it, you will NOT get lifetime maps regardless of any advertising to the contrary. Garmin makes the same device and gives lifetime maps with every device, new or refurbished.

    The VIA 1535 exceeded my expectations. Excellent voice recognition, easy to use while driving Quick & easy touch-screen entry of addresses Can locate nearest store via voice command ie Dollar General Keeps favorite locations Keeps previous routes Updates to the latest map after purchase Shows most speed limits, your speed, & ETA Voice announces upcoming turns and streets Voice commands can change volume or to night colors Choice of several voices 3-D map shows route and distance to next turn If you miss a turn, it quickly recalculates route Auto-switches to day or night colors Easy to move from car to car

    I love the Tom Tom manufacturer - this replaces my old, bulky and outdated Tom Tom that's 6 years old. A very smart buy! Say "yes" to the refurb, and save yourself some serious cash!

    Don't be fooled by the Tom Tom map blurbs. I have a very similar model to this. Map share is NOT new maps. New maps will cost you $71.95 per year to keep the GPS up-to-date and on the road.

    • A. Yes. You have at two options with the USB cable provided. The USB cable attaches to your PC or notebook computer which charges the device. Or you can purchase a wall adapter for the USB cable for less than $10 that lets you plug the same USB cable directly to the wall plug. I like both options, both do a good job.

    • A. Call customer service and they will activate lifetime maps for you. I called them and was really surprised how quickly they answered. Expected to spend long time on hold, but I spoke to a rep and was done within 5 minutes. However, after they have activated the lifetime maps, you still have to download the newest map yourself and the download can take a long time.

    • A. You have to call Tom Tom Customer Service and provide them with the activation code and Serial Number of the unit. Then they will activate it for you. Make sure you create a MyTomTom account first. Then they can hook it up using your email address. When they activate it for you you get the map of Mexico as well.

    • A. Well, you can't get lifetime maps. It is false advertising, but I read on other websites that tomtom dumps these refurbished models at certain websites with advertising the refurbished GPS comes with lifetime maps. They don't allow transfers of lifetime maps from the original owners to refurbished unit buyers. You can buy the maps, but after that you really have lost. It cost more than buying an entire new unit.
