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..
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: 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!
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: Good Points * Shows you the quickest route based on current traffic flow. * Locates the nearest petrol station. * Shows accurate distances between speed cameras. Bad Points * Sometimes takes long to react e.g.
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.
