In our review for the TomTom VIA, we did have a slight problem with optimization for Indian roads earlier, and that will now be hopefully fixed with this update. Though these devices offer pretty much a singular function and use, they definitely prove to be pretty efficient and useful in the long run. The cost factor also plays one of the major defining roles out here, but that’s the trade off you will have to live with, if you want the 'luxury' of a portable navigation device.
