No free upgrade

12 November 2009
  • Summary: This item works great, and has a big screen. I was excited to see that we had a free upgrade to get the latest maps, but was dissappointed after connecting to the web site to hear that our upgrade was "out of date" and that upgrades are going to cost us $79.00 more! That being said, we have not found it to be missing any of the streets that we have asked it to find, so I am not going to upgrade at this point. I just don't like "hidden fees" very well.

Seems ok, though I wish I were aware of some things BEFORE purchase

Michael DiGregorio, Amazon
28 May 2009
  • Summary: 1. The internal memory on this unit is 1 GB. Though that fact in and of itself wouldn't have made me pause at purchasing this device, the following situation would have: I went to download an updated map using the "latest map guarantee," and it told me there was not enough room on my device for the map. Huh? I just bought this (brand new), and it already can't fit the latest map!

DOES NOT COME WITH LATEST MAP UPDATE

John Madison "John Madison", Amazon
28 April 2009
  • Summary: I've just received the XL-S and haven't had time yet to use but I am sure I will like it based on specs. However, I bought it "New" from Amazon to make sure that I could download the latest map update for free (refurb devices don't provide for that). When I went to update the map, the message from Tom Tom...

I Nicknamed it Dum Dum

Frank C, pcRUSH.com
31 December 2008
  • Summary: Comments about TomTom ONE XL-S Automobile Navigator: While on a tour one truck had this, the other didn't. While mostly good, it made enough mistakes for it to earn the nickname Dum Dum. For example the time it said I was at a restaurant when I was parked in front of an empty field.
  • Pros: Compact, Durable, Easy To Use, Improves Experience
  • Cons: Sometimes Not Accurate

TomTom ONE XL-S

R. Schloss, Amazon
12 July 2008
  • Summary: The TomTom ONE XL-S is a good product with a few annoying quirks. It features a widescreen display and text-to-speech feature (announces street names), which are among its strong points. But I also use a Garmin Nuvi in my wife's car, and it has several features that the TomTom lacks. For example, the Garmin turns itself on when the car is started, and off when the engine in turned off; the TomTom must be manually turned on and off.

OK but not great

Marc R. Feldesman ""photo and computer ge..., Amazon
10 May 2008
  • Summary: I have three navigation systems - one for each of my cars. All are different brands so the comparisons are apt. The TomTom falls squarely in the middle of the three brands. The screen size (4.3") is deceptive. While it is true that the screen is 4.3", the maps take up only about 2/3 of the screen, while the other 1/3 has some rather large and real-estate intensive text.

Good But Not Great....

Amazon Customer "MontWat", Amazon
20 March 2008
  • Summary: I have this and used side by side with a Garmin 200 W for several weeks before returning the Garmin. Overall this is a good product but a few annoying bugs keep it from being great...here are the pros and cons Pros It finds the satellites quickly and keeps the signal. The garmin took 2-3 minutes almost every time from a power up start (this was the deal killer) The user interface is nicer and has a lot more options than the garmin.
