Refurb

Overstock
30 October 2009
  • Summary: Because these were refrib units, if we want to do an intial update we have to pay for it killing the cost savings for buying such a unit. We purchased 7 units some of them are very good others are questionable at best. The better unit that was suppose to Blue Tooth link doesn't. Very little information on these unit for set up or additional features.

has never worked properly

Overstock
17 April 2009
  • Summary: This unit has never worked properly. TomTom has not been very helpful the multitude of times that I have called about it. It shuts off by itself, and I have to carry a paperclip around with me for constant resetting. the screen is almost impossible to read in the direct sunlight.

Bad Maps, Crazy Routing, Poor Battery Life, Clunky Interface

Mr. GPS, Amazon
25 October 2007
  • Summary: Everything is relative. If you have never used a GPS before, or you work for TomTom, then the TomTom One is the top of the mark. If however, you have used GPS units from other manufacturers, the TomTom One is far off the mark. The problem, in my opinion, is the maps. The TomTom's use inexpensive maps from a European company called Tele Atlas. Garmin, Magellan and just about every single built-in navigation system sold in the USA use maps from the US based NavTech.

Out of Date Maps

F. Reiss, Amazon
21 August 2007
  • Summary: Our old GPS unit died recently. After looking at several models, we ordered the TomTom ONE because of its well-designed interface. When we tried to actually use it, though, we discovered that its maps are hopelessly out of date. Our unit (ordered in August 2007) shipped with the version 665 maps, which are a blast from the past.

Very poor navigation, otherwise nice features

Amazon Customer, Amazon
18 May 2007
  • Summary: I recommend avoiding the TomTom One. It gives wrong or at best misleading directions almost everytime I have use it in the last 4 days. The TomTom One is easy to use, intuitive, and has a lot of nice features. But the all-important algorithm for routing needs major improvement. I have not used other GPS devices, but Mapquest, Google Maps and other internet services are much more accurate than the TomTom. On one occasion, I would wind up traveling to the wrong state!

Traffic Information Very Inadequate

Michael R. Farley, Amazon
2 February 2009
  • Summary: I have the TomTom traffic receiver in use on a TomTom Go 730. I have extended the aerial and it connects to the traffic TMC signal quite quickly, where I am located it picks up on the London Classic FM frequency of 100.9Mhz. The problem with the system is the quality of the traffic information. It is basically useless.
