Summary: We got it for free from company event. If I paid for it, I would have returned it. There are a few things I don't like 1. The graphics looks cheap (compared to garmin's) 2. It doesn't have text to speech thus won't tell you street name (in voice), that is very annoying, I think visual confirmation is very important when you use a GPS. 3. First time power up, it didn't work. Keep telling me my moving speed was 0 miles/hour, although we were in a car on the highway.
Summary: This is a great GPS unit. Easy to use, great routing and plenty of POIs. Just be sure to download the firmware upgrade and link to mapshare (both free of charge) before using. The downloads will be available automtaically when you link to TOMTOM HOME. After the upgrades, the unit works extremely well.
Summary: I got this unit for a bargain price of $139.00, which unfortunately is about $138.00 more than it's worth. The visual quality is good, and the directions--both spoken and displayed--are easy to follow. The problems I encountered were problems with the accuracy of the maps and the absolute senselessness of the route directions. Two times in one 15 mile trip, the Tom Tom took me down streets that were not thru-ways, even though its map showed they were.
Summary: This is the best value in under 200 GPS market. Despite some initial problems with updating the firmware and whatever else TOMTOM home does, the unit performs admirably. However, I can see why someone might run out of patience with the setup/update process. I kept getting bizarre messages of the "You have no maps" type.
Summary: I bought this one over the Garmin because its price. The map is good but it keeps losing signal to GPS. When I was driving in PG county, MD, it keeps getting message "Wait for a valid GPS signal". I have stop for 5 minutes before it can find the signal. I works good on Highway but suck on the small road. I just want to through it out of the windows sometimes. PIECE OF JUNK!
Summary: I got mine at BestBuy after blackFriday 07. It didn't work unless I pressed the reset button at the bottom. The customer service was great at TomTom. Turns out the software in the box was flawed and needs to be updated with the latest version. I also get the free map update with the 'latest map guarantee'. please not that map updates are NOT FREE. TomTom only guarantee you the latest maps at the time of purchase.
Summary: I've been lusting after many GPS systems the last 6 months but finally made my purchase today! This is my first GPS unit. Let me first state that i've put the TomTom One LE through a 100 miles of testing already and im quite satisfied. Its important to remember that this is an entry level system at a very good price ($139 if you look around). Having said that, here is a run down of my experience with it: 1. The box is a pain to open.
Summary: We were fortunate enough to get the tomtom LE on sale for $119.00 the day after Thanksgiving, but knowing how great it is, it is definitely worth the $299.00 price. My husban is the one who drives the most and uses it, and it paid for itself and more the other day when there was considerable traffic on his way to work. He had already set his destination as his office, and at two different points during his commute, there were huge traffic jams.
Summary: I was very happy with Tomtom one 3rd edition. Since Tomtom LE has more features such as bluetooth and memory card slot I bought TOMTOM LE for my wife. But unfortunately i am very disappointed with TOMTOM LE. All 3 of my cell phones are not compatible to tomtom LE. So i can not use mapshare. Tomtom LE is very slow it takes atleast 15 minutes to connect to satilite. It freezes all the time. Customer service is not at all helpful. All they do is reset the system.
Summary: Just picked one of these up at Best Buy last week for $150.00 and it proved quite valuable for a road trip to multiple points in Michigan from Pittsburgh. I probably would have been late to a wedding without this product. I was originally worried about this unit not having up to date maps and having to purchase new ones, thankfully that was not the case.
