TomTom VIA 180 review: A mid-range GPS with IQ Routes and safety camera notifications

IQ Routes, points of interest, safety camera alerts, lane guidance, hands-free operation

Not set to metres by default, map display sometimes got confusing even in places with a clear view of the sky, screen not always responsive

Pretty, but flawed. Somehow the recent software has nixed the camera alerts and made a decent GPS less so.

Pretty, but flawed. Somehow the recent the software has nixed the camera alerts and made a decent GPS less so.

The Via 180 is the first GPS I've owned, although I've borrowed many (mainly Navman). Everything is really good, easy to configure, bluetooth works great. The cigarette lighter/USB charger is great because I can charge my phone from it. The only...

I have just replaced my GO720 (damaged) with a VIA180 and am very impressed at the ease of use. However I can understand the negative comments from those who are unfamiliar with the operation of TOM TOM's. I found it very easy too configure and to...
