TomTom ONE review


UPDATE: This model has been discontinued. For a list of current TomTom models and their features, please see our TomTom comparison chart.

The TomTom ONE (original edition) is a small, pocket-sized device, similar in form to Garmin’s nuvi, and it is a more basic navigational device than some other TomTom units. Rather than try to cover the differences here, check out our TomTom GPS comparison chart.

The ONE comes with pre-loaded maps of the U.S. and Canada, voice-prompted directions, a color touch-screen and the SiRFstar III chipset.

  1. The iPhone is Still Not Quite There

    I’m begrudged to admit it, but Vasken is right in his claim that his Blackberry is better than the iPhone… For now at least. Having had the chance to play a little with Casey’s iPhone, I must say that the interface is wonderful. It is slick, intuitiv…

    I have a TomTom One XL, and I am looking for a map of Mexico. Or a software to construct a map of all the places where I go, and then upload to my device.
    Thank You for your comments.

  3. Very nice post! I have to say that the GPS Laptop Receiver is one of the greatest devices that i have ever had! It is great! Thank you for the information!

  4. My son gave me a TomTom One for Christmas. We used it for our trip back from Huntsville Alabama to our rural SD home. Simple to set up a trip. Amazing accuracy! It announced our arrival at our driveway exactly! It navigated us into St. Louis differently from the way we have always gone. TomTom’s route was better -less traffic (at 5PM) and faster.
    After I got home, I hooked it up to my laptop and downloaded the latest SW. When I restarted the unit it reported there were no map files. Fortunately I’d backed it up before I “updated”. Restoring from back up “fixed” the problem. Now I can’t tell if I’m running the latest SW or not. But, it works.
    The only thing I don’t like is that it doesn’t report the altitude.

  5. Thanks MEKKMan. I don’t have a TomTom ONE here to test right now, but under “preferences” there is a “Configure GPS” option. Will that show elevation?

  7. American Map introduces its 2007 U. S. Road Atlas in several editions, setting a“ gold standard” in the industry. The 2007 edition features unparalleled benefits and new lower pricing, according to Marc Jennings, President, The Langenscheidt Publishing Group. While most online driving directions and navigational systems cannot suggest alternate routes due to traffic, weather and construction, the 2007 U. S. Road Atlas can. “ Between gas prices, traffic snarls and obstacle- course construction, drivers need…

  8. Benton Evening News- (ARA)- Where do you plan to spend Spring Break- or summer vacation for that matter? Will you be exploring Europe, snorkeling with the stingrays in the Caribbean, hiking in Hawaii or relaxing at a resort in Florida?
