TomTom VIA 180 GPS unit


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

The TomTom VIA 180 is a mid-range GPS unit with plenty of features. You get IQ Routes, fast route calculation and re-calculation and it also offers safety camera warnings, lane guidance and hands-free operation. It performed well in our tests, guiding...

TomTom Via 180


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

Slim and slick ; Refreshed look for the interface ; Speedy route calculation

Voice recognition is more miss than hit ; Latest software upgrade has removed camera alerts ; MyTomTom PC software is a retrograde step

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

TomTom VIA 180 GPS device


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...
