TomTom ONE 125 SE

TomTom ONE 125

EDIT: Currently unavailable (as of 12/3/2009).

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 125 SE is set to be this year’s Black Friday star, with Walmart set to sell it for $59. The ONE 125 (pictured) was last year’s hit, and not only has the price dropped dramatically from the $99 we saw last year, TomTom has even added text-to-speech!

Technically, the ONE 125 SE is exclusive to Walmart, but we expect it, or perhaps a similar model with another moniker, will be available online Friday. If so, we’ll have it on our GPS Deals site’s Black Friday pages (I’m going out on a limb a little bit here, but you might want to check the site at 9 a.m. Friday). Otherwise, get in line at Walmart.

Mio Moov M300 and M400 – Black Friday specials?


UPDATE: Okay commenters, you’re right, it’s not the iGO interface, but it does appear to be the Navman interface, and not the Spirit. I stand by my Black Friday prediction though!

Mio just can’t seem to make up their mind. When we last heard from them they were touting the Spirit interface on their S-series units. I never got to play with one for more than a few minutes, but it seemed pretty clunky to me.

Well this morning we learned about two new models, the Moov M300 and M400 (pictured above), which appear to use their old iGO interface. But wait; Nav N Go, creator of iGO, suspended their relationship with Mio early last year due to “breach of contract.” Further confusing matters is Mio’s lack of retail presence in the U.S., which is pretty much confined to Radio Shack at this point.
