Convenient GPS navigation from TomTom
Convenient GPS navigation from TomTom
Looking for a no-fuss portable navigator that you can count on? TomTom's VIA 1415M offers door-to-door routing across the entire U.S. and most of Canada and Mexico, so you can roam without worry. Since it's not loaded down with bells and whistles you don't need, it delivers directions quickly. And you don't have to worry about future road changes affecting your travels as TomTom allows you to update the navigator's maps free of charge as long as you own it.
The VIA 1415M boasts text-to-speech technology, so you'll hear actual street names announced at each turn. And when you approach certain turns, you'll see a split-screen display giving you both an overview of your route and a closeup of the turn. You'll have millions of points of interest at your disposal, so finding a nearby hotel, restaurant, or gas station should be a breeze. And TomTom's IQ Routes feature takes the average speeds of traffic along all possible routes to your destination into account, so you'll get the fastest route based on your time of day and location.
Lifetime map updates and sharing
You can keep your maps updated through TomTom's site for as long as you own the navigator. You can also keep up-to-date with road changes through Map Share, a feature which gives you dynamic updates like new speed limits, blocked roads, and recent detours. And if you register these changes on your device as you come across them, you can share them with other TomTom users across the country.
TomTom's EasyPort mount lets you mount the VIA 1415M to your windshield with ease, while still giving you the best possible view. Simply turn and click the navigator's base into place, and you've got a solid foundation. Then adjust the navigator for your preferred view. When it's time to move the VIA to another vehicle, simply turn the base the opposite direction, and pop it out.

Overview: The TomTom VIA 1415M is a portable navigation unit with a 4.3" touchscreen. It contains preloaded maps of the United States, Canada, and Mexico on its built-in 8 GB memory. The Lifetime Map Updates subscription assures you have the most up-to-date maps available.
EasyPort Mount: The VIA 1415M comes with the integrated EasyPort suction-cup mount for installing the unit in your vehicle. You can mount the unit on the windshield (using the suction cup), or flip it over and mount it on the dash (using the supplied adhesive disk). No matter which way you turn the unit, the screen automatically flips to the correct orientation.

Lifetime Map Updates: With the Lifetime Map Updates subscription, you can download up to four map data updates per year from the TomTom website. You must first register your device and create a TomTom account.
microSD Card Slot: The VIA 1415M is equipped with a microSD card slot on the rear panel. You can use a memory card as extra storage space for adding extra maps to the device.
4.3" Widescreen: The VIA 1415M features a 4.3" widescreen, touch-panel LCD display (480 x 272 pixels) with an anti-glare coating for easy viewing and simple operation.
Rechargeable Battery: The unit has an internal Lithium-ion battery. A fully charged battery offers approximately 3 hours of operation when not plugged into the vehicle's power source. The VIA 1415M comes with a car charger and a 5' USB power cord. The power cord can be removed and the car charger's USB port can be used to power other electronic devices (Output is 5V DC/1.2A).
GPS Receiver: The TomTom VIA 1415M features a high sensitivity GPS chipset that gives you fast, accurate positioning.
Driving View: When the TomTom VIA 1415M starts, you are shown the Driving View screen, which shows your immediate locations on the current route. The Driving View screen displays your current position, the name of the next major road or road sign information, navigation instructions for the road ahead, the name of the next street to turn on to, information about your trip time, remaining distance and arrival time, and GPS signal strength. You can tap the screen to zoom in and out of your route.
Text-To-Speech: The VIA 1415M also announces directions and street names giving you easier guidance and allowing you to focus on the road ahead.
Split Screen: The VIA 1415M will display two different views on a split screen as you approach an exit or interchange. One view will be the normal driving view, while the other view will be a closeup of the interchange to guide you to the exit or maneuver.
IQ Routes Technology: The VIA 1415M calculates your routes based on the real average speed measured on roads rather than the posted speed limits. IQ Routes takes into account the time of day you're traveling a road, and how rush hour traffic, pedestrian traffic, and traffic light changes can affect actual traffic speed. You will get a more accurate ETA and the fastest recommended route based on real world data.
Points Of Interest: The VIA 1415M gives you access to millions of pre-loaded Points of Interest (POIs) including gas stations, parking, restaurants, cash machines, and lots more. The POIs are indicated by icons, and in some cases, logos of the business. You can select which POI categories you want to display.
Favorite Locations: The Favorite menu allows you to store into memory those locations that you visit frequently. You can choose a favorite location the same way you choose a destination. The following menu options are available; Home, Address, Recent Destination, Point Of Interest, Point On Map, GPS Position (allows you to store your current location quickly), latitude and longitude, and the location where your TomTom was last used.
Help Me! Menu: This feature gives you direct access to safety and road assistance information, such as the phone number and route description to the nearest police station or hospital.
Map Share Technology: TomTom's exclusive Map Share feature enables you to add to, update, and personalize your maps instantly. It also lets you share and benefit from fellow users' changes - daily, automatically, and easily. TomTom's large satellite navigation community contributes and exchanges map changes amongst each other, giving you the latest, most accurate and up-to-date mapping information.
