Pros Highly legible touch screen
Solid windshield mount
Will get you to the destination
Cons Contrary to documentation, cannot get live traffic feed
Don't count on the generated route to be either fastest or shortest but it will get you to your destination.
It can take an hour to reacquire position if it looses GPS signal unless you stop.
Summary Don't buy a TomTom product unless you have seen all features that you plan to use demonstrated on the actual model you are buying. In my case, the package and online documentation was wrong. TomTom support response was only that the TomTom One 125 will not pair with a BT phone even though the documentation says it will for traffic updates. I now have a GPS that won't do what it was purchased to do, even though I read the documentation.
Pros none at all
Cons you have to down load maps to find out there are no new streets that was on the old version one. then be told there is no refund.
Summary i use this for work and depend on it it cheaper to buy a street map or use map quest or yahoo maps. then wast your money on there updates. lol what updates only think i seen differant was the grafices wow what kind od gas staion you are passing
Pros This was a present, I have never used a GPS before. It was pretty easy to get going, and is great in places where it is easy to get lost.
Cons The mount is annoying. The battery dies quickly when not used, and takes a long time to re-charge. Sometimes, the return route is not the same as going, this can be confusing. It does not always obey request to go via a certain road.
Summary The 125 is a great value, especially in this economy. If you need a GPS, and having one really beats printing out maps off the internet, it is a good choice. While you don't get advanced features at this price, see if you really need them. There are a few quirks. One in particular is the command to 'merge onto motorway'. That is confusing if there are multiple exits right up ahead. But OTOH, it responds VERY quickly if i deviate slightly from it's route, say to bypass a red light, or if I miss a turn. Nowadays, it is very trendy to have everything widescreen. But it has been pointed out that for a GPS, you need to see what is ahead, not what is to the side. So the 4x3 screen works just fine, no need to feel techno-deprived.
Pros its easy to use, the mount works well and very light. maps are up to date and can be adjusted if needed therw the tom tom website. it picks up the GPS signal verry fast, its the best $100s I've ever spent
Cons None at all.
Summary I knew what I was buying, I diden't want to spend a lot, I just wanted a good working GPS, it works great with OS X. and is much better then the Magellen GPS I had, that the maps were out of date when I baught it and would have cost me as much to update, then it did to buy this, with a better interface and it picks up the GPS signal much faster. I would recomend this to anyone who wants a good GPS that won't let them down and won't cost them a ton.
Pros Size, portability, rapid fix, intuitive operations
Cons One minor detail about the suction cup mount
Summary I purchased this only because I had a $75.00 Dell gift card. However, I am hooked on this model. My previous GPS (a Pharos 140, see my review) totally sucked and I would only recommend it for dumpster ballast.
First, a word about people who complain or criticize that it doesn't have BlueTooth, or some other high-end feature; lighten up. If you desire those features then buy a GPS that has them; don't criticize one that doesn't.
This is a terrific entry-level GPS. It initializes quickly and is accurate. I have tried most of the features and found this GPS to be very user-friendly and the touch-screen functions are most intuitive.
The only problem (and a very minor one at that) is that there is no locking detent on the suction cup mount to keep the ring from backing off. Tom may want to think about that for a re-design.
Other than that, a top-notch GPS for a budget-minded person.
