in need of more localized details

Overstock
19 April 2009
  • Summary: For someone who just moved to a new town, GPS is always a help. However, the system really needs more localized information -- I have not been out that much, and so far I have encountered two occasions when I entered the street address and the system did not recognize the street name at all. There are not many "points of interest" stored for the area.

Tom Tom = Dumb Dumb

Frank C, pcRUSH.com
31 December 2008
  • Summary: Comments about TomTom ONE XL Automobile Navigator: For planning trips I recommend a computer and a web map. The problem I had with this isn't general design - I picked up the controls within seconds of touching a GPS for the first time. But it makes too many mistakes for my tastes.
  • Pros: Acquires Satellites Quickly, Compact, Easy Menus, Easy To Read, Easy To Set Up, Simple Controls
  • Cons: Not reliable

TomTom ONE XL

BrianD.Hosterm an, Rate it all!
10 December 2008
  • Summary: I purchased this product about a week ago and when it came it was messed up from the start, the maps were all screwed up and it permenantly had me located in Guam! Im in Texas. I spent over two and a half hours on the phone with these people trying to get it working with no success. Finally they tell me it needs to be repaired and that I have to ship it to them AT MY OWN COST, and that it will take two weeks for them to repair it and return.

Tech support could be better

Jim, PhotoAlley.com
18 November 2008
  • Summary: The TOMTOM ONE XL would be OK if it came with an up-dated map but it dosn't, you can download one free from tomtom's website but everybody dosen't have highspeed internet and dialup takes 70+ hours. I don't think so! It needs an update badly. alot of missing information. The websites service center was no hope. I never found a link after two nites where I could tell my problem to someone. Just self-serve links. Forget the phone.
  • Pros: Acquires Satellites Quickly, Compact, Easy To Read, Large Screen, Reliable Performance
  • Cons: Inaccurate, Outdated maps

Cute.

  • Summary: I've had Garmin 2610 for a couple of years which I bought refurbished for about the same price as a brand new One XL. 2610 (it can be found for a lot less than ONE XL) is a "reference" GPS for this review. ONE XL Pros: 1. Lightning fast GPS lock 2. 3D map 3. Bluetooth (but no handsfree) 4. Chatter kept to minimum and to the point. 5. Very simple and intuitive interface 6. Portable/2-hr power reserve 7. Traffic info support ONE XL Cons: 1.

Basic navigation only - POIs are useless!

AURELIO, Amazon
23 October 2007
  • Summary: This could be a nice product if it weren't for the lousy mapping information. The wide screen is nice, menu controls are O.K., audio instructions are clear. The point-of-interest information, however, is inaccurate to the point of being useless. Wanted to look for a Home Depot on my newly bought TOMTOM, nope: generic 'shopping centers' only, you can't look by chain name.

Poor support from TomTom

Jon D. Andreasen, Amazon
17 June 2007
  • Summary: Although the TomTom One XL does what it is supposed to, do not look for any technical support from TomTom. Their support agents are either completely unfamiliar with this product, or are extremely rude and condesending. In one call I can say that I have never been treated in such a rude and unprofessional manner. The printed instructions that come with it say next to nothing in different languages.

Promising but so far, USELESS

David K. Oliver "I Luv Toyz", Amazon
9 June 2007
  • Summary: Apparently, if you check for updates and actually UPDATE the ONE XL, you'll corrupt the OS due to the update being older than the shipped version. Red circle with a white X = DEAD. No reset, no downloads available to correct, no customer service on weekends, after normal business hours, no coherent on-line support. This is a very promising device.
