I've been a TomTom user for many, many years. A while back I upgraded to a VIA 1605 and I hate it. I hate it, I hate it, I hate it. I finally decided I must get rid of it. What I hate most is the way it mounts with the small globe with the smile cut into it that must be lined up to mount the unit. And I hate the plug connector. It requires you to use that angled connector plug that is only available from TomTom.. I would rather be able to use a common mini USB plug available anywhere. Also the built in jack which the plug , plugs into is very shaky, shoddy, flimsy, and not solidly secured into the machine.\nI like the old Start model that uses the snap on mounting ring and has a solidly mounted connector under the unit that will accept a mini USB cord available at most any store or gas station. The big problem is that TomTom no longer supports the Start model. Is there a TomTom that I would also like and that the Lifetime maps are still supported?
