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 When we tried to actually use it, though, we discovered that its maps are hopelessly out of date.
Summary: After my buddy drove by with his new Garmin streetpilot i5 I knew I just had to have a GPS too. So after reading all the reviews and pros opinions in my price range I choose the Tomtom one. After only 5 day of use this unit located my home on a differnt street. Miss my mother's home by a half mile.
Bad Maps, Crazy Routing, Poor Battery Life, Clunky Interface

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.
Summary: I have owned a TomTom 335-S for 2 years. Basiclly up until this week I have been pleased with the unit and customer service resolving issues. May current and most critical issue is with Map Updates. I reluctantly purchased a 1 year update.
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.
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.
Summary: I bought this unit in January 2008, and have used it about six times "for real". Now, it has developed a loose or broken wire, so it no longer works. I'm awaiting TomTom's response on a warranty replacement.
Summary: One aspect of using satnav devices that not many people comment on is that you must completely trust them, or you will find yourself continually wondering whether to take the narrow road or the dual-carriageway exit that somehow doesn't feel quite right...
