Summary: Not a bad deal, I could have gotten the same one off Craigslist for 3 dollars more without the wait. I thought this one would be a little cleaner than it was. It works perfectly, but is pretty roughed up and the battery is shot. There is some definite heavy scuffing on the body of the GPS, BUT.. the screen is nice and clear. I really wish I had spent the extra 20 bucks for a brand new one... Not a bad deal all in all.
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! It's easy to break the cable because of this. When you haven't used it for a while it takes several minutes to become operational once plugged, and you have no hint as to when is it ready to be switched on.
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. My new one cost £129.00 In its favour, it's much slimmer, and comes with a sucker that helps attach it to the windscreen. Even with the sucker on it, you can now put it in your pocket although it's a tight fit.
Summary: + nice and small, works ok, typically TomTom clear screen, ability to remove annoying voices. New mount is brillant compared to my previous v2. - useless for business travellers who require business park POIs as they aren't there. Battery life nowhere near as stated and it doesn't hold it's charge when not in use. NO SD CARD slot for maps - why???? You have to remove from the mount to store in it's dedicated case - this is going to wear out the clips rapidly.
Summary: Will I have used tom tom devices for a number of years and been very happy with them, this device is no different although a little disappointing in some respects. The device is well put together and solidly built. The suction cup at the back of the device secures it firmly to the windscreen and is easy to use. When you switch this device on it locates satellites quicker than I have ever seen any GPS system, even indoors.
Summary: Nice little gadget. Gives clear and precise directions. Re-routes very quickly. Has a tendency to avoid major routes, instead sending you down minor roads which I assume are marked as national speed limit. Also, in France it would direct me via the toll motorway to get to Disneyland but then completely avoid the same road on the way back! However, my biggest disappointment is the lack of Itinerary planning.
Summary: A soon as I connected the Tomtom to my PC the unit froze and it was impossible to switch it off or do anything with it. Manual has no information how to perform a reset. The Tomtom website has a support version but only up to v3 (which has a reset button), but no support info is provided about the v4 unit. I finally found that by keeping the power switched pressed for about 1 minute, it is possible to switch off the unit and restart from there.
Che delusione per il navigatore piu famoso del mondo

Excerpt: ...pc. Macche, il server di TOMTOM non è attivo. Ora mi sichiede se consiglieresti questo prodotto ad un amico. Beh purtroppo l'ho fatto, e l'ha pure acquistato, l'avessi solo saputo prima. Speriamo che a lui non faccia come a me. Niente da fare anche dopo ripetuti reset ogni tanto il navigatore si accende da solo, ed il problema grosso è quando lo fa in piena notte e nel sonno ti senti dire,: "DESTINAZIONE RAGGIUNTA"...... Quindi anche tom tom è ...
Cons: Malfunzionamenti, cavo di alimentazione scomodo per l'accesso
Excerpt: MI OPINION SOBRE ESTE sistema de navegacion LLAMADO GPS ES QUE, QUIEN NO NECESITA UN GPS PARA IR A CUALQUIER LADO, HOY EN DIA ES LA UNICA SEGURIDAD QUE TENEMOS PARA IR SEGUROS POR ALGUN LUGAR QUE NO LLEGAMOS A CONOCER.....SI VAS DE PASEO A UNA CIUDAD O PAIS CON TU FAMILIA Y CONOCES NADA DE NADA, NO DUDES EN TENER UN GPS EN TU AUTO, YA QUE TE VA A FACILITAR EL VIAJE Y SEGURO QUE VOS VAS A ESTAR MAS TRANQUILO POR EL BIEN TUYO Y DE TU FAMILIA.............
Excerpt: TomTom ONE V4 Europe 11 un buen GPS, compacto, robusto, y de diseño moderno, una pantalla lo suficiente grande como para verla perfectamente desde la posición del conductor, copiloto o desde detras. Lo primero es programarlo antes de salir, tarda muy poco en encontrar el satélite y estar listo para funcionar, después se le indica la ruta, o simplemente se busca la dirección a la que se quiere ir, poniendola en el buscador completa o un trozo de la dirección y dandole a...
