Costco is offering the TomTom Via 1535TM (Lifetime Traffic & Map updates) at an additional $30 off their already discounted price of $149.95. That's $80 off list and $60 off what most other discounters offer it at. In store or on-line at...
That is a very good deal. I might get one for my son, I gave him a ONE XL many years ago that did not have lifetime maps.
Great deal indeed. My ONE XL just got fried and I'm needing a backup just in case something happens to my 7150. Lifetime maps at this price is a definite YEEHAW!
I thought so. I got one a couple years ago for what I thought was a great deal ($130), but haven't seen it or anything comparable anywhere close since (`till now).
There is an additional aspect of this sale at Costco that I think is worth mentioning here - although it does show up if you click on the link.
This is that a very nice multi-outlet charger is included in the package with the GPS. It will charge three devices from your vehicle's CLA socket, and will provide up to 2.1 amps for one of those devices - a real convenience for tablets that draw much more power than a typical CLA (~0.5 amps) will provide.
This CLA normally sells in the vicinity of $20, and I can say from about a year of personal experience that it works well.

Actually, I bought two; one for my son and one for my wife. I've been checking it out and have been very pleased with the results.
The screen is a nice size and easy for these older eyes to see. It is bright enough to see in the Texas sun. Voice recognition has significantly improved since my GO930 and is a viable alternative for entering your destination. My wife likes to say "Take me home." Now if we can connect that to an autopilot to drive me home...
I have seen the traffic display, but so far, not the automatic rerouting for traffic.
I really like the data display options. I am able to see the current time, speed limits, my speed, distance to the next turn, time and distance to the destination and arrival time at destination. There are other options, or you can select fewer data items. I also like having my current street at the bottom and the next street at the top.
Another nice improvement is TT finally shows which side of the street your destination is on. Yes, I know you could always figure it out, but it is now clearly displayed. Easier is important in getting my wife to actually use this device.
So far, I am letting her enter our destinations while we ride together. The real test will be if she chooses to use it by herself.
It is a very nice unit, especially with lifetime maps and traffic. At $120 (until tomorrow), it's hard to beat.
Tiger Direct has a refurb of this for 79.95. I picked one up for my friend last week.
I tested it and loved it. The ratings at tigerdirect.com are 4.5 stars out of five.
I've gotten refurbs there before and have had as good luck as new.
I have a store in town (Raleigh) so I run down there and get it.
Are Lifetime Maps included? In the past, several people have been disappointed to find out that their refurb TomTom unit did not include Lifetime Maps.
If it does include the maps, that is a great deal.
The certificate is in there for lifetime maps. It also has the fm traffic receiver. I've gotten several TomToms from Tiger and they are all still working and I've been updating the maps for free for years.
I saw in the reviews on this item at the Tiger site that a go live 30 day trial might be part of the deal too, but the fm lifetime traffic has been enough for me.
