“Tom Tom says turn left.”

published 05/02/2013

Takes the stress out of travelling, updatable.

Can occasionally mislead you.

My Husband and I came to driving relatively late in life, my Husband only passing his test when he hit thirty. For many years driving was an adventure for us. I would plot out where we were going using the latest AA map book, pencilling the route carefully and giving a rough estimate of when we...

“Introducing...GEORGE!”

published 09/02/2006

Never getting LOST ever again...

None None None.....

My best Christmas present was a Tomtom One. For those of you out there saying WHAT??!! It's a satellite navigation system ('sat nav' for short). It gets you from home to places and back home again without having to look at a map or an A-Z, of which I have about 12 lounging on the back seat of my...

Poorly located charging indicator LED

I don't know too much about in-car satellite navigation systems (satnavs, as they call them) and it's not that I have used a number of devices so that I can compare the pros and cons of one against the other. But, I am a very satisfied user of TomTom One and would definitely recommend it to any...

There are many models of Satellite Navigation / GPS units available and from various brands but I've only ever gotten on with TomTom. I've found Garmin and Navman units a bit fiddly to program. I'm sure if I stuck with them, I'd get used to them but I've always preferred TomTom thanks to the easy...

“No Wrong Turns”

published 14/04/2013

clear display, easy to follow directions

-

I have been using my friends TomTomOne when I have needed to use a sat nav and have to say, this is a really good model. I used to have a Binatone sat nav but this one is by TomTom which of course are the most well known brand for this type of device. The one I have is the Europe one which suits...

“Silly Name - Great Product”

published 04/11/2007

Light, comprehensive, easy to use

May occasionally send you up the garden path!

My partner already had a Tom Tom Go, but sometimes we both needed help. He travels all round the country and recently had to plan routes for a new car launch from many dealer locations in the South East, with a Tom Tom he was able to plan the routes to perfection, detailing mileage, junctions...

Picture the scene of you will; a dyslexic husband driving the car and not having a clue where he is, five kids screaming in back because a wasp has just flown through the window, and me finally admitting we're lost - and have been for the past fifteen minutes since I spilt rola cola over the...

can be annoying

When I started driving, I realised very quickly that I was awful at map reading, kept losing directions written down or printed, and that outside of my local area, I had no idea where I was going, so I decided to buy a sat nav. My inital deciding factor to buy the TomTom One Classic was the fact...

Poor battery Life, No mains charger supplied

I've been using the TomTom one for a couple of months now, so thought I'd write a review on how I've found it. If you're after a review with lots of info about the spec of this thing, then don't read on, there are loads of websites out there with that info, I'm just going to give you an overview...

review ------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------- As a regular user of the TomTom, I do recommend these. I do realise there are a large number of reports on them, but here are my opinions on the version one, I will let someone else write about the version 2...

“Have TomTom will travel!”

published 14/11/2006

Compact, neat and gets you where you want to go

Don't use Shortest route on long journeys

So there I was with a trip to Leicester from North Wales, so I visited a website to get a route map, OH NO! How confusing, so I bought myself the new TomTom One Local from my local Currys for only £199.98. After getting the TomTom home and unpacking it I couldn't believe how compact the new model...

“TomTom Number ONE”

published 17/03/2007

Easy to use, Lots of options

None as yet

I got the TOMTOM One from halfords for £179.99, although I am sure there would be a better deal on the net, I haven't been driving for long and hate not knowing how to get where I need to be. I picked a TOMTOM navigator because I had more about them and they were said to be one of the best and...

Poor battery life.

I remember back to the bad ole days in the past where I would be driving somewhere new and I'd have to try to read a map whilst driving (yes, I know, not terribly safe!) - and inevitably I would end up somewhere other than where I wanted to actually be! However, the last few years I have been...

“The talking map...”

published 16/12/2006

Small, bright and light

battery life is rubbish

The new TomTom One is a huge improvement on the design of the out side casing. The old look was large and bulky and to tell you the truth I thought that it was ugly, but this new design is brilliant. It's smaller, nice flat screen, light weight and fits snugly into your hand. I find this...

“You have found me my son!”

published 29/03/2007

So simple to use and amazingly accurate

Sometimes loses satellites

I have been using the Tom Tom One for over 12 months now, so do consider myself an expert on this particular piece of kit! Why did I buy it in the first place - that bit is easy, I travel a lot in a new job and to towns I would have never heard of before - on top of that I had some fantastic...
