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
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.
Pros: Acquires Satellites Quickly, Compact, Easy To Read, Large Screen, Reliable Performance
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.
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.
Works okay but has several design flaws and bad support

Summary: I bought this unit three months ago because I was moving to a new state and didn't want to spend a lot of time being lost. It's been very helpful in getting me around, but I've had more than my share of frustrations.
Summary: I have been using the TomTom 3rd edition for more than a year so I decided to buy another TomTom for a second vehicle. I got the XL just for the extra size. As experienced TomTom used noticing the differences is a very simple fact, here my experience.
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.
Summary: Bought the TomTom One XL for over a year and half. Used it for trips in Midwest and Northeast regions and it performed OK. At least it would take you to destinations, although it sometimes took us through residential areas instead of main roads etc.
Summary: I purchased a One XL not quite a year ago. With the exception of the battery, it's great! I use it several times a week and for the last couple of months, it's been hard to maintain a charge. It's at the point now where it won't power up at all and from what I've read, this unit has battery issues.
