Summary: As already reported, The Tomtom is great, easy to use etc - although the speed camera and speed limit database are not up to date. Good idea too to have Mapshare, whereby users can record and upload corrections.Battery life is very poor and it tends to freeze from time to time.
Summary: I'm reviewing this very late in the day, so that it goes from my 'please review' page. It was great and I've changed cars to an inbuilt system which broke, so I went back to TomTom for a time. The TomTom in car is now fixed and these sytems are very good.
Summary: The TomTom has taken me to the middle of housing estates when the post-code entered was 2 miles away and it fails to hold a charge, but I didn't pay much for it as a refurbished item so it is OK, but not any better than that.
Summary: We bought this 4 years ago in 2008. Generally, it's a good little device. HOWEVER, it quite often takes a loooooong time to find a GPS signal. Today it took 35 mins, other times it's taken 45 mins, which is really really really frustrating.
Summary: Used this for over a year. The processor of this device is incredibly slow, you'll often find yourself having to stop the car waiting for it to calculate the route. The usb plug/socket interface is poorly designed making the plugging of the cable a mission!
Great gadget - maps have errors and are out of date

Summary: Was given one of these as a Xmas gift. I would never have bought it for myself - but it has proved handy on occasion. Easy to use - and no serious faults at all, other than occasionally when you plug in to your PC for updated maps, it wipes out all of your favourites!
Worth buying once it has dropped in price somewhat

Excerpt: I was forced to buy a TomTom One v4 (mine says 4EE0.001.03 on the bottom) when my last TomTom (so ancient that the man in the shop hadn't got any chargers, died unceremoniously with a whining noise whilst on holiday.
Summary: The Tom Tom Naviation System that I purchased has been great. I have had no probems with it. However I ordered Navigation System 4, and I notice that on the unit it only says "Tom Tom 1". Surely they can't all be the same? Is the one I have really version 4 I wonder? If so, how do I know that?
