Pros Easy to Use, Compact, Simple Setup
Cons Short Battery Life, Flimsy mounting, hard to mount

I bought the TomTom ONE 3rd Edition back in December 2007.  This was my first ever GPS unit and I was not dissappointed.  It has a great set of features for an entry level unit.  I used it mainly when traveling out of town on the interstate and visiting cities I was not too familiar...

The tom tom one gps, is truly amazing.  I don't know how it compares to other gps systems, as this is the only one I have owned.  The price is perfect since it's an older model, but it was still reasonable when I got it for $250 originally.  The biggest problem is finding a signal...

GPS for the direction impaired!

Pros all the add-ons like restaurants and shopping site, large screen for gps
Cons voices can annoy at times (can be turned off), can't find some addresses
Recommended it? Yes

Some people cannot give good directions; therefore, having a gps can simply your life.  I have this unit, and I am overall satisfied with it.  It does not recognize new roads and/or highways; however, it can usually get in near your designated area.  I use this on every trip.  I would recommend to...

I spent my hard earned cash on this piece of junk.  When I bought it, only 1/2 the time it gave me accurate directions.  I even knew the directions to get to my destination, but entered the address in the GPS anyway and it STILL gave me wrong directions.  It got worse from there.  Upon numerous...

For drivers who regularly travel to unfamiliar areas, a GPS navigation system has become a critical tool to greatly simplify one's life.  For others like my husband and me (who only occasionally travel to unfamiliar places), it's a much appreciated luxury.

Pros cheap, and there's a reason it's cheap
Cons it's a piece of crap.
Recommended it? No

My Tom Tom worked okay. It didn't come with the traffic included, like it said on the box. That was extra software you had to pay to install, and then pay for monthly. So scratch that off the list.
Very often, it would take up to 10 minutes to find a satelite. That doesn't help you when you're... Read full review »

Recommended it? No

One major shortcoming is that announced upcoming distances are in reality only a fraction of what the announcements state they are. So if this model says to turn on such and such a street 300 yards ahead, you better be ready to turn well before that, such as maybe 300 feet!

Likewise, another... Read full review »
