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 When we tried to actually use it, though, we discovered that its maps are hopelessly out of date.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.
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.
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 bought this unit because the makers claim it has: "Optional warning when exceeding recorded speed limit (if available from map data)". I need this because I was caught by a speed camera at a notorious spot where the speed limit is not clear.
Summary: The service is so bad it is non-exsistant.The staff make up answers by each phone call.No Product Card Number in box for future down loads,TomTom can not help and staff dont know what to do.Western Europe Edition is a nightmare.OK, I know some routes are good, but going from Ilford to Dover Via A127...
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...
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: My two month old Tomtom became very unreliable during the recent warm weather, although in an air-conditioned car with temperatures much less than the specified 50 deg C, the tomtom operation was very flakey requiring many hardware resets, eventually it lost the ability to lock on to GPS.
