Your routes will be accessible on a 5-inch 480 x 272 pixels display. There’s 4GB of memory stored in the device, but obviously you can increase this with SD card.

One potential downside to this model is that battery life only lasts up to two hours. On long road trips, this may not be convenient but don’t forget that the low retail price of $170 is the main highlight here.

This price will go even lower during this month so it worth keeping an eye on. For a more detailed look at this model, you can head over to Amazon’s TomTom 1505M VIA Portable GPS review page here.
